Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.

@2PacksAday,
Hey 2Packs, I seem to keep thums-upping your posts but not really finding anything to add... (I had a Midwestern great-grandma named Bertha too and I so can't imagine her saying "****"... Shocked)

I went through this whole "baby" thing the other day by the way, to my surprise. Sozlet burned through "A Series of Unfortunate Events" (the books) a while ago, and enjoyed them so hugely that I wanted to read them too. She and I went to the library together and got the last slew of 'em for me, and other books for her. There turned out to be an event at the library that she wanted to watch -- not interesting for me but I was happy to wait around while she did so. Then I started getting bored. Then I looked at the stack of books I had in my hands, which are kind of good for boredom. But I had a weird resistance to reading the books in public.

Yes, this is the brother who is in the military -- a General, about to get his second star. His war games paid off! He was born to be a soldier.

I'd like to see that "Arthur" episode! How did they handle it on the show?

@boomerang,
I forget precisely, but in the end, all Arthur's friends confessed to liking it too!

As a boy I was always made to feel ashamed for wearing my sisters' dresses, particularly on my summer afternoon campaigns setting fire to neighborhood pets.

But, alas, so it goes in a strict Catholic home.

@sozobe,
Thank you for the thumbs up....I often do the same thing.

Heh, yeah "****", I'll add that the whole north/south thing was a pretty serious subject with her {me too, we shared many interests}...we watched "Roots" together...and wow, we had some major debates about that...same with "The Blue and the Gray"....I tended to play devils advocate a lot though to chide her...just a bit. "****" was usually reserved for such instances, and an occasional "Oh, hell", but never more than that.

I have two small kids, and each week they both bring home a "Weekly Reader", I read the articles then ask them a few questions...little bonding thing....and often the same night or next day, BBB or Reyn...Drewdad...will post the main topic of the WR on A2k, I'm always tempted to quote a reply from the WR. {Now that I think about it, I don't think they have been bringing them home this year.}

I have read the Harry Potter series 3.5 times now....I'm nearly to the end of Goblet of Fire, {the 4th book} for the 4th time....I don't brag about that very often either. When I was estimating a house this summer, I noticed they had a room under the stairs...."Hey, a Harry Potter room"...the lady looked at me like I was nuts...."You know...from the movies...my kids watch them."

@2PacksAday,
2packs, this type of thing isn't child's play. It's definitely an adult hobby, and a respectable one. Kids have toy soldiers and they blow each other up and that's the end of it. Scholars set up accurate battle scenes and act out history in miniature.

Why in the world do you still seem to be ashamed of it?
