Part of me is a wife and mom, part of me is a writer and poet and part of me is still a kid in jeans tooling around in my VW Beetle listening to Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, James Taylor ... and The Beatles ...

Have you hugged a tree

Tomorrow is Arbor Day.

Do you remember ........

Charles Pajeau and Robert Petit created TinkerToy in 1914 after
watching children play
with pencils, sticks and empty spools of thread.

TinkerToys originally sold for 60 cents and were first called the
"Thousand Wonder Builder." The distinctive "mailing tube" package
was selected to help reduce shipping costs. The back of the package
included an address label with a space for postage.

By 1918, over 2.5 million sets were sold.

I guess since I didn't show much enthusiasm for Lincoln Logs,
my parents never bothered with TinkerToys.

TinkerToys are still available from Hasbro.
