These monster delivery rigs never fail to impress me when they show up on King City's residential streets and off-load concrete into foundation forms for new houses. When I was a teenager I worked for a couple of summers on new house building sites in King and pushed my share of wheelbarrows full of concrete. I remember pushing what I thought were incredibly heavy loads of concrete over rough and uneven ground, up wobbly, slanted planks and other narrow spots, always pleading with myself, under my breath, not to spill a load. I was strong, but I only weighed 150 lbs. I was wobbly, but willing. It was all part of life's rich pageant ... and I made few bucks too.
