"Tonka tough" is the ladder firetruck toy. It is metal and has held up well in storage in the basement. I know one or both the grandsons will love to mess with it for a little while. The ladder really does extend out of the top of the toy. It took a while to clean off all the dirt but it does look good now.
They all bring back memories but the oldest toy here is the plastic horse. It was one of my animals that went with my barn set. I must have received it as a Santa gift back in the late 1950s. I don't have the barn anymore but there are a few of the animals floating around in the different boxes of toys. Most of them that I have found are in my antique toy cupboard. Can you identify Bert in the photo along with R2 D2?
I have our basement all ready for a furnace crew to come in tomorrow. I had to clean out and move things so they can get to all of the areas needed to install new pipe and the furnace. It has been a busy time the last six days as i use them to throw away lots of things and move things. It was good that I was forced to do this as I need to empty the basement anyway. My dumpster is almost full.
I hope all have had a good weekend and is ready for Monday. We will be warm on Monday and things just keep sprouting and budding. Thanks for stopping by today.
