This isn't working out, so I have decided to just combine both blogs together. So everything will now be located at: http://collectorsuniverse.blogspot.com/ ! See you all there!

Down memory lane WILL continue there. In fact, I posted a pic of me as a kid with Beetlejuice from Universal Orlando!

I felt it was time to do another round of pictures from my past:
 These I have shared before in a group of Facebook, and thought that I would share them here. I was tempted to share them on Alexis' Universe, but decided to do it here instead. These are from when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles did appearances at Walt Disney World!

 I remembered this experience and was so excited when dad sent me these pictures last year!

He even included a picture of me getting a signature from my favorite turtle Michelangelo!

Also while I am here, I think I'll also add an update on both of my blogs:

In an effort to connect my two blogs (this one and Alexis' Universe), I am going to be making some changes to both blogs including having the same feature (but different content) on both blogs probably Tuesdays (maybe Thursdays, still deciding). This will be a throwback to the 80's, 90s, and earlier. While my other blog will deal with mostly toys, cartoons, and related, this blog will deal with everything else like music, movies, etc. That is actually the whole point of this blog, this is where things that do not fit on my other blog will be put up.

This bog will be updated regularly starting in 2017. I have just been sick (and still am) lately. I blame the yo-yo'ing weather! Pick a temperature and stay there. I mean 20s and now almost 60s?

I thought it would be cute to share these Christmas related panels from a Family Circus book that I have.
And now some panels from a Garfield book that I have. I think these were either adapted for that special where he found his mom (as this went on for a month or so, but I am only sharing the end).
Next are a couple personal images from Christmas past.
This image is not from Christmas but is from one day it snowed in Georgia when I was a kid.
I decided to share that one for those like me that are having a rainy and not a white Christmas. 😢

This old Family Circus comic strip feels fitting as we here in Muncie have snow and outside my window I see icicles!
