Blast from the Past: A Package in the Mail

For those of you who were also kids during the early and mid eighties... You might remember some of these.  

You see, a box arrived from California yesterday and when it did there was a rush of little feet towards the front door.  They impatiently shuffled their feet and danced around the room as they waited for me to cut through the tape and then:

In the box were some of my favorite toys that my parents recently discovered in their basement.  The box included...


And a whole bunch of other toys.


And some of my favorite "guys" (that's what I called them when I used to haul them around everywhere when I was three):

Even Patrick joined in the fun:

And I still can't believe how big he's getting!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
