Eric Alders Little Lost Toy

OH! 
I'm a little truck lost
Accidentally tossed
By my little boy
I'm his favorite toy
He is missing me
Screaming like a banshee
While his patient mother
Backs up and finds me



Eric Alder posts a photo every Monday
to inspire you and me.
Thanks Eric- and click on the link below 
to play along! Cheers!

There is something so very sad about a lost toy. You can't help but wonder about the child who lost it.

Bwahahahahahaha. I just listened to the father that was lip-synching his daughters meltdown and then I came over here. Perfect timing.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

I liked that you chose a playful take on my photo, Kathe. (It could have been sad, or even sinister)

Thanks for playing M.M.P.P. again this week!

It's that sad, forlorn air that an old, outgrown toy has that makes it hard, sometimes, to just throw them away.

This kind of reminds me of Toy Story :)

I agree with the other, there is something very sad about a lost toy...especially one that was a "favorite" for some little person.
