Good Morning Guys and Dolls:
8 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS AND COUNTING. These days are passing quickly and the more people I talk to have not finished their shopping, baking, decorations etc. To me the time is just flying by and I wish the days would slow down a bit for everyone so we could relax a bit, but I’m not the Time Man and have no control.
Yesterday was Stupid Toy Day but I would like every one of my readers to let me know what toys you asked Santa for when you were little. Let me know if you received them also. Now being an only child I usually received what I asked for but in moderation and personally I did not ask for a lot of toys. Roe and I tried to do the same for our sons and I hope they do the same for their children. OK here are some of the toys, games etc. I asked Santa for:
Erector Set – Bingo got that one and it kept me busy for hours.
Air Rifle – This one made a real loud sound, but no BB’s; never shot my eye out.
Machine Gun on Tri-Pod Stand – This one shot plastic bullets as far from the living room into the kitchen, my sons played with it when they were little.
Fort Apache Set – Had fun with that for a long time. Came with soldiers, Indians, horses and you name it.
Toy Trumpet – Blew that baby early Christmas morning and woke my parents up, Dad was a little pissed.
Electric Football Game - This one had a motor, and you had to line up the players and one player had a little foam football and when he was hit that was the end of the play. Pretty neat game in its day but to set up the players was a pain.
One thing I’ll always remember was the train, my uncle’s 1939 American Flyer, tracks were on a plywood sheet my Dad made, the town was inside the tracks and JoeyZ was the Engineer. OK Guys and Dolls your turn so I’ll be waiting. If you can read you can comment so get to it.
