Just because it's work doesn't mean it can't be fun. Just look at what happened when a Houston-area trash collector found an awesome toy left on the curb.

Valentina Centofanti-Garza of Crosby, Texas tells KTRK-TV she recently threw away her daughter's stuffed pony because it had a busted leg and the spine was ripped. They say one person's trash is another's treasure, and for a few brief moments that was very true.

The woman's security camera caught video of a sanitation worker taking the toy pony out for one last ride.

If you needed a reason to smile today, I hope that video did the trick. It was good for my heart, though I am a little sad the horse was tossed in the truck. I would have taken it home and fixed it up! Get me a needle and some thread and I'll sew some new life into that pony.

Still, it's awesome to see someone having so much fun on the job, especially such a thankless one. Our sanitation workers do a great job keeping our streets clean and clearing away our junk.

To all the sanitation workers out there, thanks for all you do. Stay safe out there.
