Whimsy


One of the things that I love about living here is that you never know what you will see next. I was driving from the farm to the city with a young friend and as we turned onto a main road, she cried out "Stop up here!". I did and turned to look what she was so excited about and saw a donkey cart tootling up towards us with the back end of a Toyota pickup truck loaded on the cart. Once the cart had passed and I could look closely at the cart instead of at the traffic, I could see what had delighted her so. It looked as though the cart were labeled as a Toyota. Wonder what the Japanese would think?

I agree, it is whimsy,heavy tho for a little donkey to pull?

Pulling isn't so hard and the empty back end of a pickup is lighter than many of the loads of crops that they pull. It's the carrying that really is tough on the donkeys.

Toyota might want to use this in an ad campaign.
