  1. Thanks for the information, ttomtucker!
  2. Thanks to all of you for the comments and for hitting the Love It button! It's good to know that some of this stuff connects with other people in a positive way! Thanks, jscott0363, dav2no1, ...
  3. Ms.CrystalShip, when I was 7 years old, I was given a game that had cardboard playing pieces. I thought the end of civilization was near! It really made a difference in the perceived quality of ...
  4. I agree, jscott0363! The painted metal swamp boats are my favorite thing about this game! Thanks for taking the time to comment!
  5. I appreciate y'all dropping in and hitting that Love It button, Newfld, jscott0363, dav2no1, vetraio50, officialfuel, fortapache and Vynil!
  6. Thanks, Vynil! That's why I try to stay away from town! Too many bugs!
  7. Thanks, jscott0363! I like it, too! Especially all those little faces along the sides of the box!
  8. Thanks for looking, fortapache, vetraio50, jscott0363, RichmondLori, dav2no1, Vynil and Ms.CrystalShip!
  9. Thanks, Vynil! A friend told me that there is also a board that goes with this game, but the person who gave it to me didn't have it.
  10. Thanks for riding along with Rusty and me and the pooch, kwqd, jscott0363, aura, fortapache, Newfld, Vynil, dav2no1, vetraio50, Manikin and Ms.CrystalShip!
  11. Same here, Ms.CrystalShip! Always heard about him and saw many references to him, but have never actually seen the show. Makes me feel good to know that I'm too young for SOMEthing!
  12. Thanks to Vynil, AnythingObscure, jscott0363, dav2no1, vetraio50, Newfld, fortapache and BB2 for taking a look!
  13. BOY!, no kidding, Vynil! The old ways are the best! But they aren't really striking, since there are no matches left in this matchbook!
  14. Thanks for dropping by and checking out the new subdivision, vetraio50, dav2no1, RichmondLori, jscott0363, Vynil and fortapache!
  15. Thanks, dav2no1, RichmondLori, jscott0363, fortapache, ttomtucker, vetraio50 and Vynil for stopping by!
  16. Yes, I noticed that, too, Vynil! What's HIS connection to MB, I wonder?
  17. A very good question, Vynil! What happens when you put phosphorescent items under a black light is they glow so brightly that they look positively RADIOACTIVE!
  18. Yes, indeed, Vynil! They're also good for making 'spin-art' using the internal workings of an old 8-Track tape player!
  19. Cool cartoon on the back! What does the last line say?
  20. Hey, Vynil! We played this one at The Fun Arcade!
  21. No problem, Watchsearcher! No apology needed. I understood what you were saying the first time. I have the same concerns about my own skills! Thanks for dropping by!
  22. I still have hope that Marvel Studios will do the Fantastic Four! Now that they've got the rights back from 20th Century Fox, (who managed to screw up 3 of the 4 F.F. movies), they are currently...
  23. That was supposed to say "Astro-Boy".
  24. halie14, I have an Astros-Boy figure like this! I believe he flies! A 3-foot length of string from the hanger on his back to a mount on the ceiling or overhead beam allows him to fly in a circle...
  25. Thanks and a "ding-a-ling" of the old rotary phone to couldbe, Vynil33, Watchsearcher, AnythingObscure, jscott0363, dav2no1, vetraio50, fortapache, officialfuel, ttomtucker and ...
  26. Thanks, ho2cultcha and BB2! Thanks to AnythingObscure, kwqd, dav2no1, vetraio50, wickencrafts, jscott0363, officialfuel, fortapache and Nan24 for dropping by and watching the d...
  27. Yes, Watchsearcher, I have the same doubts about it! But as long as the TOOLS are not defective, I have at least a fighting chance!
  28. Fiddycent DOES sound better, Vynil! Thanks for the Love and comment! Thanks also to Newfld, vetraio50, fortapache, officialfuel, ttomtucker, dav2no1 and jscot0363 for hitting the...
  29. Thanks for the information, ttomtucker! I might have to edit my post now.
  30. Sorry about giving you the spins, Vynil.
  31. Comes with helpful instructions on how to play a record on a phonograph!
  32. Deep, man! I love the faces on these guys!
  33. Those Dennis dolls you have are so perfectly modeled! They look just like the comic strip, but in 3-D! Perfectly ON-MODEL! Even Dennis' eyebrows!
  34. Did I mention that I love the color?
  35. These are gorgeous! Such vibrant color! And, yeah...SO Disney! Her album cover is GREAT! Amazing drawing and solid type design! Great color, too!
  36. Man, Vynil, that IS a big reckit! Great design for the cover. Looks like paperback mystery novel covers from 1946 was my second thought! Do you enjoy the Stethoscopic Sound they achieved on thos...
  37. Thanks for the coastal high sign, BB2, raven3766 and jscott0363!
  38. May your journey be fruitful! ...or at least FUN! Thanks again, jscott0363!
  39. Thanks, jscott0363! Watch out for jaywalkers on your way home!
  40. Thanks, jscott0363!
  41. You need to build that robot to help you move things. Then again, there's Donovan's answer to movement among the stars.
  42. RichmondLori, I think you hit that nail on the head! Quite an astute observation! I was trying to figure out why this art had a familiar feel to it. A friend of mine collects those banners and now ...
  43. Yes, Newfld, MB's Chutes & Ladders is directly descended from that early form of the game. I didn't know it went as far back as 2AD, though! Wow!
  44. Thanks, Vynil! And thanks to Newfld, fortapache, Cokeman 1959, vetraio50, valentino97, dlpetersen, dav2no1 and Daddy_Nobucks for coasting on over and hitting that Love It button!

  46. I'm glad you came along for the ride, AnythingObscure, Vynil, fortapache, dav2no1, vetraio50, officialfuel and Theonlyone! Seeing that LOVE IT button light up is the best tip a Cabb...
  47. What? They have a Hollywood Boulevard in Portland?

  49. I've never seen the senior combination board, Vynil, but maybe it's because I'm not old enough yet.
