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 ...

Do you remember ....

Ole Kirk Kristiansen was a master carpenter and joiner who established
his business in 1932.
He made stepladders, ironing boards, stools and wooden toys.
The company adopted its name in 1934.
It is a combination of two Danish words,
Leg and Godt, which mean “play well.”
Coincidentally, the word in Latin also means “I put together.”
In 1946, the LEGO Group bought a plastic injection-molding machine for toy production.
In 1949, the company was producing plastic and wooden toys
which included Automatic Binding Bricks,
the forerunner of the bricks we know today.  LEGO began selling in the US in 1961.

Legos gone wild

.... and if you just want to play all day ...
