   Oh Internet, is there anything that I can remember that you can’t locate? I was thinking back on an eraser set I had back when I was 10 (1980). Lo and behold I found them. Not only did I find them, I also found this awesome blog post that,is very informative, about them. The only thing I had to go on was the name on my favorite piece… HORTA. I have fond memories about these erasers. They were toys that were acceptable in the classroom, so it was as if I was getting away with something 😉

    Looking at them now, I am more drawn in by the blue Cyclops Robot.

G.I. Joe: The Secret of the Mummy’s Tomb

   I had this record and book set, plus a few second hand pieces to this Adventure Team set. Good times. I dig how the uploader added some limited animation in a very Marvel Super Heroes way. Before home video, ruling out projectors that most of us didn’t have, this was the only game in town. OK, sure there was the View-Master too 😉

David, 8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016

   It feels like I’ve mourned his death for the whole year. After Carrie passed, a weight had been lifted by some words of wisdom. The time for sorrow has gone, now let’s celebrate all we ever had while we had it. No matter how long, or short a time that certain entities were in our lives, we could rejoice in the memories of every moment.

Once again…
