PlaidStallions Fifth Birthday Bash!

As if my pants inching up higher and the growing need to get those damn kids off my lawn weren't enough signs I'm getting older, this impulsive idea of mine hits another milestone.

Yes, we're five and I can't believe how far this has gone and that I've stuck to something this long. Seriously, I don't even finish sandwiches sometimes*. Originally I thought the site was a "five year mission" tops but I have so much I still want to do, that I simply have to keep going.

I've got a couple of treats in store today including a contest, an announcement and a way cool feature.

Thanks to all of you for the kind words and support over the years and especially for making me laugh, there are so many times I've logged on and wish I'd thought of the some of the comments you folks write.

Sometimes, with my weird little obsessions you can feel a like you're the only person who gives a crap, it's really nice to know I'm not alone.

(* That was BS, I not only finish sandwiches, I often finish other peoples as well)

YOW! Happy fifth, 70s Coolness Brudda!

Now lets start the next Five Year Mission with, hmm, how about some cool toy store shots?

(and look, there they are)

Happy Fifth Birthday, Plaid Stallions!

Your blog has long proven a wonderful obsession for me, and I am constantly in awe of the treasures you unearthed here for our consumption. I have spent untold (and happy...) hours the going through your toy store galleries from the 1970s, not to mention those "Space Playgrounds" of the disco decade. Amazing work.

Thank you for all the hours, and all the memories! Here's to (at least...) another five years!

All my best,
John Muir
