Flashback to the Sixties

The grayness of the sky was brightening as I waited near the field as instructed. 
I hadn't been there long when I heard the sound of an old familiar engine. 
The old blue Dodge truck has been in GriggsDakota since it was new. 
 That was in 1969 when aqua was cool and so were we.
Now it is used only as a water tank truck. 
The lines and wrinkles give it character, just like the rest of us from the sixties. 
Robbie parks the '69 truck and jumps out.
My mind flashes back to a white haired toddler. 
A young man parks a truck much older than he, on a Spring day in GriggsDakota.
