The Humpty Truck has been retired at age 55. I took it to the Mustang Museum where it looks like he will have a safe and enjoyable life among other toys with similar tastes, values, and memories.
Humpty was thirty-five years old when I gave it to my grandson, Pete, for his first birthday. Sometime through the years he got moved back to my house. Pete is now twenty. Not really the age at which one wants to move a toy from dorm to apartment in whatever town he is in. Therefore, Pete and I made the decision to let Humpty Truck go visiting for a few years or even forever.
Humpty Truck is on loan to the museum until such time as Pete or other designated persons want it back. Win, win for everybody.
I have other items which will probably go sit a few years in the museum. I will record their retirement as they happen.
My thanks to the people who work to make the Mustang Museum a nice place to visit. It is now in a very cramped building, but the volunteers are optimistic that they will be able to bloom in new surroundings someday.
The woman in the picture with Humpty and his friends is yours truly, and the good looking guy is Pete.
