Merry Christmas! Whajaget?

I got a space rifle,

and an Aurora Thunderjet slot car set, and Mom and Dad got a new Polaroid camera....

Well, that was a few years ago, but it was still a great Christmas!

If I could reclaim one thing from this photo from 1967, it would be, the hair on the top of my head!  But that slot car set comes in a close second.

This year was good, I got some wood chisels, they'll be good for detail work on the tiki stump carving project, and the family got a Mac Mini, which I'm using right now for this post.

I hope everyone is having a good last week of 2010.  I see this blog has surpassed the 100 follower mark, and for that I'm also thankful!  I'm plotting another giveaway, watch for that announcement in the coming days.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas Atom!

    Ohhhhhhhh, I so wish Santa gave me a space rifle. I was a deprived child like most kids and got new underwear instead :P

  2. Haha, did you have a plaid lunchbox too?, poor thing. The good thing about being an adult and having the internet is, you can usually hunt down that long lost or never received gem. I wish I could remember details about this rifle, I've tried looking it up but so far nothing. I think it had a small pistol that fit into the hand grip, but I may be mixing that up with something else. I wish I had a photo of me with the Ideal Batman Utility Belt I had, I've pieced together parts of that set. I'll do a post on the bat belt sometime soon. Merry Christmas!

  3. Merry Late Christmas Uncle Atom :-) My Christmas' as a kid were just wonderful too! I hope you and your fam had a good one this year. Happy 2011!
