This past summer, my family sold the home that belonged to my grandparents, a place I spent some very happy Christmases in. I even wrote a blog post about it back in the fall.
While it was obviously a sad time, it also had it’s bright spots. One of them was discovering the woman kept everything I ever drew or wrote in her home. It was a really warm feeling to be honest.
Seeing as it’s Christmas, I thought I’d share my wishlist from I’m guessing 1981. Every year I’d cut out pictures from catalogs and present it to her so she’d know what I’m on about. I had posted one from 1979 but I totally forgot about this one.
As you can see Star Wars was my big thing that year.
Smurfs? That was total peer pressure, every kid in my class was into them that year and I felt kind of like the odd man out for not having any on my desk.
I did get the At-At from my folks (and it was EPIC!) but I’m not sure I got any of the other stuff, I certainly didn’t get any Smurfs.
Fond memories like this is why I started this site and I really wanted to share it. Thank you.
