I'm a saver

I've been saving my Dad's rusty old green wheelbarrow for ...I don't know how many years. I never used it for it's intended purpose. I just like to see it in the Spring and Summer and remember all the times my Dad would use it for hauling plants around, or loading it up with the vegetables from his garden, or hauling trash to the curb. The wheelbarrow had its spot in my Dad's garage. It was on the left side of the door next to the lawn mower. Everything in it's place in my Dad's orderly garage. I can see it now in my mind's eye. Of course the wheelbarrow didn't look old and rusty back then. It was clean and green. Today I decided to fill it up with flowers and put it in the front yard. It makes me smile.
