THIS was one of the best toys I ever had:
Except mine was yellow.
I composed many hits on it, including the famed “Mommy Sick” and “I Play, I Play.”
I can hardly find any evidence of this toy online, aside from that picture I found and someone selling it on Australia’s eBay. If it was for sale here, I would get it. My goal in life is to find one of those by the time I have children, because I think they would take great joy in it and compose a few gems on it themselves…although, I’m not sure “I Play, I Play” can be topped.Filed under nostalgia | Comment (0)
As you know, Matt and I are really into gardening this year. Matt’s also a homebrewer, and this spring he began growing his own hops. They’re growing very rapidly, so we needed to buy a few trellises for them to climb.
We decided to go to the Mahoney’s in Wayland. Matt bought two trellises and the brand was called MATTHEW. And Mahoney is Matt’s last name.
So Matthew Mahoney bought Matthew brand trellises at Mahoney’s!
He made a little joke to the cashier about getting a discount for being a Mahoney, but the cashier just looked perplexed.Filed under gardening | Comments (2)
