Do You Remember…

It finally arrived yesterday. I thought maybe they had become a thing of the past. But no, there it was, hidden behind all the other mail.

A Christmas Toy Catalog from Kmart.

Just looking at it reminded me of my childhood, lying on my stomach, watching cartoons and circling pictures of things I hoped to recieve on Christmas. 

Alas, as the youngest of six, there tended to be lots of circles around everything  and not a few tears in the pages (except on the clothing pages).

Still, I held catalog, stroked it gently, then opened it and clicked my pen.

Okay, I didn’t circle any toys, and I did like a few ugly Christmas sweaters, but for the most part I stuck with kitchen things. Holiday dishes and appliances that I’d never buy myself because I didn’t really need them.

Now I’m waiting for the Toys R Us catalog.

You’re never too old for toys or catalogs, are you?

Until next time.

    I love looking at catalogs too and kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and appliances. My wish list is way to expensive so I start with the small stuff. I might get that. What I really want is to get my small to do list finished so I can get the house clean, although today I did get the freezer cleaned out. But still to much in there, so back to you Linda.

  2. I also love leafing through catalogues. Be they fancy clothes on perfect models, or house wares, I never throw them away before giving them a good look. I never buy from them, but I’ll sometimes go online and buy from their website. My ex never did understand why I bothered to look at them. He did not understand the magic. I see you do. 🙂
