Oh wow! So many that look cool to read! As you already know, my inner child feels that Toxic is a kindred spirit, but this post today made me think of my old grade school library and I just transported myself back there in my mind! (Thank you, Toxic!) =) I don't have good memories from grade school for the most part, but when I visit your blog and posts like this, Bren, it gives me good memories of the school library, a place that I did love there. So many books! I wish I could've read them all! HaHa!
Thanks again for letting me hang out in your toyroom here online, Bren. I was looking at old photos for the past week and have been hanging out in my past for the last few years now due to stress and the pandemic, caring for my mom, etc. and am overwhelmed and so it's nice to focus on some positive things like Gumby, old books and toys, anything that brings back a good memory to add to the mostly bad ones that I tend to remember more. I should give you a break though! HaHa! I was going to comment on your recent post and add Raven's youtube channel/subscribe, but thought that maybe Raven may not want your crazy Gumby, cat, sticker, book loving stalkery-like online friend following him too! HaHa! :D
I'm just a lost soul....
But seriously, thanks for the good memories that your blog posts and photos are helping me remember. And also, for all of the cool things that I never had or was aware of before (like the evil Furby and Jolly Chimp) that make me laugh! :D


sally i'm overwhelmed too, just with my health & the world the way it is, so i get it, you are welcome here at the toyroom anytime, i'm glad someone else can enjoy the nostalgia & escape the same way i do :)

believe me raven appreciates every subscribe he can get, he's an expert level gamer, but no one gets discovered till they get plenty of subscribers & finally are noticed by other gamers, you know? & they don't allow any self promotion on twitch streams & such so although lots of people know 'raven' he can't even ask them to come over & see his playthroughs! ug!
like with me & my toy blog, i'm just happy he's doing what he loves & enjoys whether he 'succeeds' at it or not..
i also have a bunch of youtubes up if you are ever bored, some are kinda old, halloween & kitties mostly <3

p.s. i saw that chucky youtube! :O


Thanks Bren. With my health, I'm surprised that I'm still here too.... I know you're overwhelmed too, I just don't want to make you MORE overwhelmed by hanging out here, you know?... I will go subscribe on youtube =) Off to my mom's, so ttyl....=)
