when “thong” meant something else…

TOY CAR 2

 

This is the kind of toy I used to love as a kid. I would build entire towns in my sandbox with little metal backhoes, and then cruise the streets with my hot wheels! Those were the days when “thong” was something you wore on your feet! It took me a while to relearn that word. When my kids started screeching in horror whenever I’d tell them to go put on their thongs, I knew things would never be the same.

PINKPEDALCAR

Project Photo 365: #350

True story! This lovely Pretty in Pink pedal car was the prize for a fundraising auction at a local toy shop. I fell in love the minute I saw her sitting in the shop window, so, of course, I entered a bid. I told one of my BFF’s about this delightful car, and she thought it would be hil-ar-ious to go and outbid me….without any intention of buying it. When she told me, I was forced to return to the shop and outbid her, ’cause she whined and whined about it. She made me pay $20 more than my original bid!!!!!!!

BFF…I know you’re reading this. You owe me some suds at the pub!!!!!!!!

Haiti relief auction…

Mark and I just popped into our favorite store in Crescent Beach–the Crescent Beach Toy Store–and we came across this adorable car, which is being auctioned for Haiti relief until February 7th. If you’re local, this is a great shop and a great cause. I put in a bid, and I challenge you to beat it!!! If you see me (that’s right…me) pedaling around Ocean Park in a couple of weeks, you’ll know why.
