Do You Remember…

Shrinky Dinks are a children’s toy and activity kit consisting of large flexible sheets which, when heated in an oven, shrink to small hard plates without altering their color or shape. They reached the height of their popularity in the 1980s. Most sets are pre-printed with outline images of popular children’s characters or other subjects, which are then colored in before baking.

Shrinky Dinks were invented in 1973 by two housewives (Betty Morris and Kate Bloomberg) of Brookfield, Wisconsin, as a Cub Scout project with their sons. 

From Wikipedia 

I remember being a kid and having Shrinky Dinks. The smell of melting plastic in the air and touching the hot little plastic pieces before the cooled off. 

Now, I see the have a little oven just for Shrinky Dinks. 


Man, I loved to have loved one when I was a kid. 

I just might have to get a box of Shrinky Dinks and recall my happy memories from when I was a kid. 

This Was Funny

Saw this and just had to share it. 

Make it a great week!

Getting Older

Saw this and wanted to share. Since I turned 50, I see things in a different light. 

Maybe I am getting wiser… ohh… bright light… what was I talking about?

Make it a great day. 

The 50 List

Well, I have this 50 Things I’ve Never Done List and having a tambourine was in that list. So, with the gift card from my sister, Cynthia  and brother-in-law, Dan, I got one. I have ALWAYS wanted a tambourine. Watch out the late, great Davey Jones, I want to be like you were playing the tambourine.

I cannot wait till I get it!

Picture of the Day

Whoa! I need to take a closer look at this picture. I do love firemen!

Happy Birthday, Elvis Presley

Today was Elvis Presley’s 82nd birthday. As I gave posted before, I am a huge Elvis Presley fan.

I’ve been to Graceland twice. Have a huge library of Elvis’ music. And several of his movies.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of Elvis.


Even after all these years, I am still an Elvis Presley fan.

I do want to visit Graceland soon. 

Happy Birthday, Elvis… there will never be anyone like you.

Here is probably my favorite songs by Elvis. 

“If I Can Dream” is a song made famous by Elvis Presley, written by Walter Earl Brown[1] and notable for its direct quotations of Martin Luther King, Jr.. The song was published by Elvis Presley’s music publishing company Gladys Music, Inc. It was recorded by Presley in June 1968, two months after King’s assassination. The recording was first released to the public as the finale of Presley’s ’68 Comeback Special. (From Wikipedia.com)

Side Note:

I’ve been planning or thinking on getting started on something regarding Elvis Presley for the past couple of years. I think, now is the time to start on that project. 

More to come.
