I got a red metal, drivable, pedal fire truck with a bell (we've got an 8mm film of me drivin' the critter). Not only the most memorable present but saw one on Pawn Stars that went for thousands of dollars. Asked mom what ever happened to that fire truck & her reply was, "whut"....   ;D

Very cool.

I didn't have a firetruck, but I remember having one of these.





My dad worked for the railroad, and my youngest brother (Chris) developed a love for trains because of that.   When he was little, I remember him getting one of these as a toddler.  It wasn't this exact one, but something similar.




Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Here's a little present my daughter gave me when she was about 8 years old. It's a card that forms a triptych of the word "joy". In the O is a picture of her. It's one of my most treasured things.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Christmas is getting close. I saw Chia Pets in the drug store this afternoon!

Also Chia Spider-Man and a Chia Zombie!  :laugh:

apparently, you can get three different versions of the zombie.

the male  (on the left)  female (on the right) and the hand coming up from the ground.  LOL

There must be more. The one at the drug store wasn't just a head or other body part. It was a whole zombie.
