A couple weeks ago I found Gabe's Christmas present at a children's consignment
that was clearing out everything at 50% off. The box may look like crap,
but I don't have to tell you guys that it doesn't do one thing to devalue the inner treasure ;)
The shopkeeper assured me that all pieces were accounted for because her daughter built and dismantled it religiously in the store. Bet she was sad to see it missing :(
I took a quick peek in the box but just long enough to see several figures and a few
glossy pullouts of instructions and such. I really kinda want to be just as surprised as Gabe on Christmas morning. Then I took a quick peek on ebay and felt pretty smug about this purchase.You know we all do it! ;)
And Mason, this post is totally dedicated to you, brother.
It was in one of your first few posts that I saw your affection for these tiny androgynous men
and I knew you were solid ;)
Until recently I had only a troop of dudes. But after receiving a lady Playmobil (who appears to be a bit Amish-y) and makin a few trades with my 8 year old niece for a lady (vet?), I have a couple of hens. But who knows with Playmobil, the vet could be a guy.......
And don't worry about my niece, she's not a pushover so don't think I'm takin advantage of her. She makes me fork over some pretty good stuff. She thinks she's gettin my old Bambi figure, keeps uppin the ante on her offers ;)
And with the introduction of the female species in any group,
the menfolk start showin off.
Hope everyone's havin a great weekend. Today we had the absolute best weather of the whole
year down in Texas :)
