It took me by complete surprise this week that it has been nine years to this day that I decided to start this blog.
Many thanks to my then infant daughter for taking a long nap on April 26, 2006 (she doesn't take so many these days) and giving me the time to begin this journey.
I really have to thank all of you for making this experience a dream, for commenting here and on the facebook page, for writing in, listening to the podcast and for making my book a success.
I am eternally grateful for the friends I've made and experiences I've had through this site.
To show that gratitude I'm having another contest:
Create a Rack Toy Contest!
I've done contests here before but this one was cooked up by my pal and podcast partner Jason Lenzi and it's brilliant.
Concept: Pick the most inane 1970s TV, comic or movie property you can think of and marry it with the most inappropriate rack toy you can think of.
Here's an example I drafted up but you don't have to do anything fancy, just send me the idea:
3rd Place: A copy of my book Rack Toys: Cheap Crazed Playthings
2nd Place: A Brick Mantooth action figure on a limited edition "Woolco" card
1st Prize: An Official Brick Mantooth Sky Diving Parachutist Figure Mint on Card.
Thanks again to everybody for reading, listening, supporting and joining in on the fun, it's made my life better.
I look forward to your entries!
