What makes a man buy an old Army truck? I really don't have an answer. Anyway, we were both busy doing some things on Sunday, our weather was beautiful! Jay was outdoors hanging up soffit around the back porch. We heard the loud engine of a truck pulling into the driveway. An Army truck, what's this all about? Of course it was Jay's friend Dad, wanting to show off the new toy that he bought. After he left Jay commented, 'Why did he buy that piece of junk?' I didn't respond but shook my head in disbelief. I'd be mortified, to have an Army truck parked in the yard! Photo: Borrowed from Pixabay

Dan's wife probably wanted to MASH her husband, for buying the silly thing!

@kobesbuddy You and Dan's wife could get busy with pink and purple spray paint.

@sallypup Actually, Dan did mention that he's already thinking about painting it! His wife and I will just paint the windows

@CarolDM Jay thought this was a dumb idea, what would he use it for?

@LindaOHio That Army tank has sat next to US-23 for many years. Tourist who drive past gawk in disbelief, probably wondering why in the heck it's sitting there!

Men can be fond of their toys. At least my hubs sticks with smaller antiques.

Dan collects all kinds of 'junk.' He told Jay, 'Hey, they've got an Army tank that you can buy!' Why in the world would anyone want an Army tank sitting in their yard?

Some men can't resist such things. Was he in the forces? Maybe it brings back strong memories for him. A touch of nostalgia.

Dan collects anything and everything, he's the last of the 'red hot spenders.'

@kobesbuddy He probably thought it was a bargain and couldn't resist.

I always say people earn it they spend it how they see fit. I am happy that he purchased something he truly wanted. That is the joy of being able to do what you want when you want. I would feel that way if it were my friend at least.

So being greedy and leaving his wife lacking in her needs is O.K.? Nope, he's selfish and undisciplined. Spending is a way to display a person's lack of maturity.

Yes, Dan is definitely a very strange man, who blames a woman for everything!
