On Your Mark, Get Set....

Okay, pilgrims, scram.

The city hosted an electric Christmas parade on Friday, but due to a bum foot, we didn't join the masses. Same for Black Friday, though we did take advantage of some online toy buying, something we haven't done in maybe 15 years.

Did you know you can STILL buy this?

And this?

For once, I don't feel overly outside the space/time continuum. These toys are great. They are colorful. Most of all, they are reassuring because they still exist unchanged, like Moonpies and RC Cola.

I swear, the ring one was my fave until I was, like 10.

Do you realize that in just a short while, the parents of babies being born will not even recognize that as any kind of phone they ever grew up with? It will look as antiquated as one of those phones with the single earpiece you put up to your ear.

They are great toys and made me feel good just to see them.
