Childhood toys

So, as a child, my favorite set of toys was my G.I. Joe collection.  To me, it represented my father.  He served in the Air Guard for a long time.  He seemed just as happy picking out soldiers and vehicles for me to play with, as I was playing with them.  G.I. Joe was the global hero core.  They represented all that was good and just.  Fighting against evil and teaching us lessons with each episode.  I still have my entire collection of G.I. Joe and almost sold them all.  Today I came to the realization of why I kept them and won’t let them go.  With Father’s Day coming, it was a nice time to remember some of the good stuff.  Peace to you and yours this weekend.  Celebrate what you like.
