The "My Die-Cast Birthday Present" Story
It was an ordinary day. Just arrived at my brother's house in nearby Ephrata, Pennsylvania to share a bowl of the chicken corn soup he recently made. A few minutes after arriving he called me into his first-floor office and handed me a long, skinny, white cardboard box which had PenJoy Company printed on the box in red letters.
"Happy Birthday!" he proclaimed with a big smile on his face. "But, my birthday isn't for a couple of weeks yet," I told him. "I couldn't wait that long. I just got this and thought I'd give it to you now," he replied. Steve has given be some pretty neat birthday presents in the past couple of years and I was excited to open it. No wrapping paper, but still exciting as I removed the lid and found a neat 1:64 scale die-cast metal truck. He knows I have several die-cast corvettes in my office and thought I would enjoy the truck.
