Someone e-mailed me about the status of Hammer 1 and Hammer 2. Which I thought was pretty cool. In case you are wondering, things remain in stasis. 2008 has been the crappiest year of my life, bar none. I'll be glad when it's over.
Meanwhile, look at what I stumbled upon tonight. Remember Wacky Packs?
I had hundreds of these stickers when I was my son's age, all carefully sorted in a special box. I kept them for years, then my mom tossed them when I went off to college. I won't say they would be worth a fortune, but they'd be worth a few bucks now. So you parents out there, don't toss away the stuff your kids are collecting. Fight the cleaning mania. Just stick this stuff in a closet and once the kids graduate from college, then tell them to take it or lose it.
Fortunately I still have all of my 70s-era Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. Matchbox cars were "Made in England by Lesney." That went away around 1972, I think. Hot Wheels were made in Malaysia by then.
