"Repairing Halloween"



The other day we were taking out the Halloween decorations we had our first casualty, one of our pumpkins did not survive the year long storage and was found shattered in pieces. Of course my wife’s answer was, oh just throw it away, I said nope! I’ll fix it. So I gathered all the pieces and got to work.





 These were all the decent pieces that I could find, all the rest had turned into dust.






 I also had to recreate one of his eyes as the pieces were to far gone.





Here he is all put back together, I would give all those kings horses and all those kings men a run for their money.




And Here with the first coats of paint, went with a bit more natural color.

X-Ray Vision for $1


 
Remember seeing those ads in your old comics, the ones that offered cool toys for almost nothing, only to get a NO as soon as you pointed to the ad when asking your parents for money, then wondering what it would've been like to have that awesome toy? Well there is this cool guy that put together a book that will answer that question and more, its called "Mail-Order Mysteries" and I have to say that this book is AWESOME!


This was one of my favorites to read about. I was always curious about what would actually be sent to who ever ordered something like this. I would've had a blast as a kid if I had one of these.


There are also some secrets revealed about some of the items that were offered, like this "100pc Toy Soldier Set". The ad description was a bit flat...sorry, had to.


 Oh and you can't forget the original that everyone can say that they wanted, the amazing "X-Ray Spex". Every young boy that saw these knew that they had to get them for one reason and one reason only...to see what was inside those Birthday or Christmas gifts...you thought it was going to be something else huh.. don't lie you know you thought it.





I had a hard time putting this book down there is so much great stuff in this book I had fun reading this and promise that you will to although I made myself stop reading from time to time because I didn’t want it to end.


Special Thanks to Kirk Demarais for the OK to write this. Want to know more about him and his work head over to SecretFunSpot.com you can find links to his other sites.

Oh and check out his short film "FLIP"

"A Place to Remember"




Most of my Ninja Turtles were purchased from this wonderful store, as well as other toys that I had in my early times called childhood. In the rare instance where the parents actually asked us if we wanted to go to the mall....which was very rare.... it was a given that there was going to be a mandatory visit to KB Toys, I mean it was only the best toy store there if not the only one at the time.

I mean just look at the cool stuff they had, I think I would look at one of these ads over and over .....and couldn't wait for our next visit so that I could run in there and buy something that was not even in the ad... Yeah that’s me and I kind of still do that. The worst part about going with the family was that once I made the toy store visit and made my purchase I was done, I was ready to go home my mission was complete but the rest of the family had other plans.  At times I would ask my parents if I could wait on a random bench in the middle of the mall where as soon as you would sit to play, a random stranger would sit next to you.



It was always awesome when I would show up and they were having one of these type of sales, it was like paradise because most of the other times that I would visit the mall I was with my friends and only had $5 in my pocket.




Sadly this wonderful place made its last few and final sales on February 9, 2009 and shut its doors to one of my greatest childhood places, It took me by surprise as I still remember walking into one of the last stores open and didn't realize it. I guess I was distracted with grownup stuff like going to college, getting a job... blah blah blah. One day I figured that I would take a trip the the mall and was shocked to see just an empty space with its prison fence type door rolled down.


Alas I Say Goodbye
