83.365 - What I Always Wanted

When I was small, I recall having an all metal Tonka digger toy. They just don't make toys like they used to.


It had a little swivel seat and a digging arm, with two lever controls for scooping and lifting.


Basically a glorified pail.


But moving a heap of sand from in FRONT of me to BEHIND me without touching it was a fun thing to do - and a learning exercise!


And I grew up to be a computer technician.


Go figure.
