misleading file name as that is clearly Silly Putty™ right thurr and I used to copy the funnies with it every sunday!
Snippets I remember from childhood I keep in my mental lunchbox and take out to feel happily nostalgic:
Saturday morning cartoons: X-Men, Transformers, GI Joe, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario, Mega Man
Blowing into NES cartridges, playing action figures in the sink filled up with water OR in the bath. Just today I found an old bag with what's left of my childhood plastic: A Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne figure, a knockoff GI Joe, James Bond with a retractable head, and a Gohan from Dragon Ball Z (I actually got that as a teenager working at Toys R Us)
Playing baseball in the church yard across from my house with the neighborhood kids. two trees represented first and second, third base was a water main access pipe sticking out of the ground and home was a patch of ground that never grew grass. EPIC and SERIOUS baseball games were played there. Play pretend Street Fighter and Ninja Turtles was also played there.
Bike races as the sun went down in the summer and the sweat on you got chilly as the air cooled into night. Hearing one of our moms yell "Tiiiiiiiiiiim" or "Aleeeeeeeeeeeex" from our respective houses, ushering us to come in for supper. Eating supper while watching The Wheel of Fortune with my parents and then settling in to watch Newhart or Golden Girls or Empty Nest. Going to bed dreaming of what cool stupid stuff to get into the next day. Super Soakers? A game of football? Stay in and play video games? I'll fashion myself a new "sword" from scrap wood. It'll ... be ... the best ... ever... zZzZzzZZzz....
