uphill both ways, in the snow!
The times they are a' changing. Kids don't get milk from cardboard boxes, it's all plastic. I guess Mr. McGuire had it right.
It did get me thinking about what's different. I know my kids are tired of my ramblings of "back in my day.." Still G.I. Joe isn't nearly as cool as he used to be. And who do the kids look up to these days? Not the heros of my day, that's for sure. (And I loved his toys!)
On the other hand, the new walkman is way better than the one I had. And this year's "must have" toy is pretty cool.
I guess there's no use in lamenting. It turns out that even nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Few things in life give me greater joy than watching old Looney Tunes, specifically Bugs (especially when he sings) and Daffy (especially as Robin Hood.) I also like Foghorn Leghorn and Marvin, but not Taz, except when he said this
Any way you slice it, Looney Tunes are fun!

Back in '81, Milton Bradley released one of the coolest board games ever, Dark Tower. After only a year of production, the game was canned after two guys sued over it.
A few years back, I was lucky enough to have a roomie who had a friend who owned the game. I sat down and played that for hours on end, day after day, until he moved out and took the game with him. A great sorrow came over the land.
Today, the sorrow has been lifted.
