In the hilarious movie parody of Star Trek, Galaxy Quest, the catchphrase that is constantly repeated is “Never give up, Never surrender.” I would like to amend this to “Never grow up, Never surrender (your sense of humor). So here are some of my recent purchases of toys and my most recent knitting project that is not a scarf.
Paper dinosaurs that one puts together and runs with a wind up motor. Does it get any better than this? The single tentacle is a bonus.
Giant wind up bugs, how fabulous it that! They are definitely the largest wind ups I have.
This sweet faced pair scoot along, then roll over. They make me happy just to look at them. They are too cute.
He’s just a walker, but I couldn’t resist this tiny robot.
I know what you’re thinking, ‘hey these aren’t wind-ups. How do they fit in the collection?’ I know that they aren’t, but they were tiny and adorable. And who doesn’t like or need Nessie?
I am in two knitting groups (a bunch of ladies and one guy). In one of the groups we are having a dishcloth exchange. Everyone brings their dishcloth in a plain brown bag and we will pick someone else’s. Of course some are plain and utilitarian, but I saw this pattern for a Darth Vader square and decided that he would be the one I knit. I think it will no doubt be the coolest one there, and whoever gets it can use him in the washing up. Never grow up indeed!
