    John Gierach had a story in one of his early books about old pickup trucks and "the wave" in rural Colorado. To paraphrase, he traded his "old old" pickup for a slightly newer old pickup. On the drive home, a neighbor didn't return John's wave. When they met at the local cafe the next day, John asked the neighbor why he refused. He answered,

    "Oh, that was you? I thought some Yuppie stole your hat."

    Great stuff..........
