Favorite Childhood games

I had looked throught every storage tote in the basement - we have lots of those - and could not find the 2nd game tote which was upsetting. I did not realize that my brother had switched them into a bigger tote that used to have something else in it. This was the only unlabled one. One day I had to move this tote for the Verizon guy to put a box in our basement. For some reason I decided to open it up and when I did I was so happy to see our games in it. The Monopoly, Parcheesi and Dominoes are actually from my mom's childhood. She had Clue too which I loved but we lent that to our cousins and never got it back before they moved.  Mom bought us a newer version in the early 1990s but it's just not the same, wish that I could have the old one again

James Herriot books

My Aunt Al recommended these books to me when I was a teenager and I really enjoyed them. I do remember seeing some episodes of the programme that was based on them too.

Easter Beanie Babies

I was very into collecting beanie babies in the mid 1990s - early 2000s and loved the bunnies and other Easter type ones also which I saved as decorations for Easter. I got back into them a little a couple of years ago but mainly just for the dogs and holiday related ones. I have not gotten any for about 10 months though and as much as I'd like others that are on my wish list I really should start focusing on saving for more important things. I recently donated some of my beanies and other stuffed animals to a thrift shop that raises money for doggies and cats. I won't part with any of these though. Maybe someday I'll change my mind about this.
