Hi!  While driving with the family along route 20 in Millbury, MA, I
noticed a PC trailer spotted for loading at a factory on the south side
just behind a MOBIL gas station and next to  a Nudie club. the trailer had
the full green PC logo and  origianl (?) markings. As I said, the "gang"
was with me so I couldn't stop and write down the trailer number. This
being a holiday weekend, the trailer will probably not move over the long

Kind'a nice to see the big worm again.
