the junius enquiry
The above would make a very good book title-so i copyright that one-sorry junius    .To answer your enquiry-i give a resounding YES!I did win the items-but what i should mention here is that no-one was interested in 2 of them-which were-haha-a mark holden cd,and a book about ping the duck-what kind of name is ping for anything ,let alone a duck.The plastic item was.....drum roll please...a set of tupperware animals-remember the elephant,giraffe,and dog with interchangeable body parts???Also waiting  on the arrival of the 7 dwarves and their diamond mine-well not literally-a golden book.But it would be so much fun if they did turn up here on a saturday night and we could have a dwarf dance party and i could dress up as snow white and we could go and stand in peoples gardens for a lark as well.I know d-day asked once if i was peter panning-well here is your answer d-day!I was actually going to journal today about some brilliant 70's op-shop records,but that will have to wait as i'm quite knackered.

Mood - knackety-knackered
Music - neil and tim finn
Edited - Never

Yes Peter Pan'ing will do that to you. Leave you absolutley K-nackered. On the subject of Golden Books I really loved reading Donald Duck's toy train and I wish I had the opportunity to read it to my Godson who is as train mad as me. I miss the cheeky little bugger lots.

I would like to get the old one of Fury, about a black horse. I have a vintage Breyer model of the horse and would like to get the book to go with it. I've searched through many a Little Golden Book selection, but to no avail so far!

I liked that Ping the Duck...I'm wondering if, for some reason, I was only thinking about it the other day...

And I remember those Tupperware animals!

You copyright it? Damn, now I'm going to have to think of a new title for my soon-to-be-released autobiography...

Glad to hear you won the much coveted items, daftbird! I did indeed tell my friend not to get into a bidding war with you but he just gave me an odd look and chastised me soundly for doubting his own bidding powers. And he thinks I'm odd...

I remember the old Golden Books. I may be a "young'un" but I still say that the Golden Books now pale in comparison to the books of my childhood. I remember titles such as 'I Think That It Is Wonderful' and 'The Monster At The End Of This Book'... classics... my favourite was about a train who wandered off the tracks to play in the buttercups. He wanted to know if he liked butter. Anyone remember what it was called? Was it 'Tootle'...?

Op-shops rule! Shall have to write a journal entry detailing my own op-shop exploits someday...

Junius, you said: "but I still say that the Golden Books now pale in comparison to the books of my childhood."
So...why do you think your childhood books were so much better? I must admit, I loved "Where the Wild Things Are" and "The Big Ball of String", but I had some Little Golden Book favourites as well. (Oh, I think I just worked out what you mean today's Little Golden Books are not as good as the Little Golden Books when you were a kid? Is that right? Id agree with that. I think the older ones were better.)

Yes, Janice, that's what I meant. Didn't realise how ambiguous the sentence was until I read back over it again. The few Golden Books I see nowadays are all about Barbie and Hot Wheels and other insane things... little kids seem to like them but, to me, they seem to lack the "warmth" the Golden Books of old possessed.

Or maybe I'm just sentimental and easing into my "naggy old lady" persona a few decades early. I reckon I say, "Back in my day..." more often than my grandparents do!

I kept all my childhood books, too. Mum tried to give them to the op-shop but I was quite horrified at the thought. Not only are they great books I want to read to my kids one day, they all have attached memories, as they're "relics of the past". I loved 'Where the Wild Things Are'. My nan used to read 'The Hungry Catepillar' to me. 'The Monster at the End of this Book' was adorable. I own nearly everything Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl ever wrote... daftbird, if you're a book whore, I don't like to think what that would make me!

Anyone remember a book called, 'The Forgotten Sausage' or 'The Sausage Behind the Fridge' or something like that? That was another classic... anyway, better shut up now or I'll set myself off again...

I recently had a good ebay win...a set of two model horses: I bid on the lot that was ending first, but got outbid, so I bid on the second lot available, and got them for about $5 less than the other lot sold for!

Good work ,janice!Doesn't it give you such a buzz?!!!!.And then you have the fun of receiving it in the mail,which is way more fun than buying things out of the shop.

oh and junius-i've not heard of that book you mentioned-i am so dreadful that of course the first thing that comes to mind is the old chestnut 'hide the sausage'-now are you quite sure that it wasn't in fact some kind of sicko sex education book??haha.(Are you SURE your dad wasn't a pimp?)
Posted by:daftbird

Am as sure as I can be that Dad isn't a pimp - however, he does work a lot of nights...

I actually wondered if anyone would make the sausage connection. Oh you naughty thing daftbird! Nudge nudge, wink wink, hey? Say no more!
