Subject: Hello All! It is crazy how time flies

It seems just like yesterday that I was making runs to Toys R Us to find deals on 21st century finds. That was over 20 years ago! Over the past 20-15 years my collection was boxed in totes and in the attic. I met a girl, got married, worked a Sheriff patrol job and retired about 3 years ago. I now have a 6 year old and 4 year old, both boys. Yeah I got a late start, I’m 54, but it is great being able to be there for them every day. My 6 year old has spent the last two years peeking in the attic and asking to play with the vast array of vehicles and figures visible. We tried a Barbie pt cruiser and Power team figure resulting a broken door so, uh No. sorry bud your too small. But he is six now and I made the decision to bring the crews back out. Wow the old memories began flooding back. Both boys were in hog heaven driving their own Stuart around. I was like a mother goose hanging over them. These are fragile boys, be gentle, DON’T force ANYTHING!. I’m a nervous wreck but the look on their faces is priceless. Other toys are cool, excavators, hot wheels, monster trucks, Tonkas, But there is something special about 1/6th scale figures. Its magical. I am working with them on a more GI Joe adventure team plot than WW2 shoot em up. We explored the living room and captured a rare crocodile and built a zoo pen for it. They were enthralled. They have played for hours with the figures and vehicles. Im happy to say that a new generation is excited as I was to interact with my action figures. They are even interested in doing photo stories. They were totally into some of the old 12 inch figure stories on you tube. I’m taking them back through some of the old photo stories I posted here way back when. Thank you GL for keeping this site going all these years. Sharp Salute.
