    Quote: 2. Landscaping. This is apparently the year we add trees and shrubbery to the backyard.
     
    A SHRUBREEEEE! Bring us a SHRUBREEEE!                 Little bit of The Grail there. Sorry. Had to do it.
     
    I got lots of house stuff to do too. Mount sinks. Build brick columns for the patio posts. Put in an irrigations system. Trim trees. Pick up doggy poo. The list is endless.

    113 in Riverside. 
    Summer School got out at noon. During the school year the AC is controlled by the district. I found out at noon that how the teachers can turn it on in their class room during the summer. Felling pretty sticky.

    I would see what I could do with masking tape laid on fabric from an umbrella. You will need a good pattern first.

    OK, I'll jump back in. 
    Do they even sell these anymore? They used to have one at my grade school. That will never happen again.

    This was one of those gotta-have-it for Christmas when I was a kid. I found out many years later that my parents had to drive to a few different stores to find one. I still remember the original ad - "Hey, you knocked my block off!" I bought another one as an adult.

    Thanks for the well wishes. 7th grade was my last choice for a grade level. I'll be teaching special ed kids. There is room for a little more creativity there because of Individual Education Programs. Yep....It won't be easy. I'm OK with that. I taught 1st graders for the first month of my subbing career. That was hard.

    Just got my first job as a real teacher. It's official. I've been subbing for most of the year as I finished up my classes.
    I lucked out and get to teach as a paid intern instead of student teaching (working for free) for 4 months. 
    New journey ahead!

    I accidentally hit him with the garden hose. The pieces I could find are back, but there is still a touch up to do.

    I see some Jennifer Aniston in there, but that's a bit your for this proud.

    I have to confess...When I saw this thread I googled 60s and 70s toys. I am a nostalgic person. I save a bunch of images of the ones I remembered.
    It seems I always had the one below, but I never remember asking for or buying one.

    Wow. I really like this one! Excellent scratch building on the rails. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Did the mattel shooting' rifle or hand guns have red plastic bullets? I have a faint memory of having a gun like that. We shot it in the house once, during the Tom Jones show. The bullet hit a lamp, made a lot of noise. My Mom screamed about it and was the last we saw of that toy.
     
    And here's one more of my favorites.
