Where you are from could mean so many different places. I mean when I first thought about it I thought of a picture of the planet earth but that is just the space geek in me. Right now I live on the outer ring of the Minneapolis area, and by outer I mean OUTER… might even qualify as a suburb of St.Cloud at this point. Before that it was Blaine and Anoka and Brooklyn Center… but in the beginning, which is what I decided to go with, It was nordeast Minneapolis. Thus I give you a picture (stolen from Google) of my childhood home!
I mean come on, look at that smile on the one in front. How could that not be one of my most prized… Mama, Red and Goldie…
There is nothing I would not do for the three of them and in a fire they are the only worry I would have about saving.
I dont really play board games that often, so I dont have a favorite. I do have one that I remember very fondly from my childhood though. That would be the 20000 Leagues Under the Sea board game.
I remember that we had gone to some family event at the Moose Lodge with my family and the kids had all been put in a large auditorium where we sat and watched Laurel and Hardy and Little Rascal films. When the films where done as we all left the auditorium the girls where given a stuffed animal and the boys where given this game… Makes me think it must have been around Christmas time.
I loved this game when I was a child with the Subs and gunboats….
I have bid on copies of it a couple times on ebay but never won.
“All I ask of you is one thing, and I’m asking this particularly of young people: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism – it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.” – Conan O’Brien
