The Donkey Who Wanted to be Wise Book

This was my book but I can't remember any of the story. Why can I remember some but not others?

110 Camera

We got one of these cameras when I was in high school to replace our 126 camera. The negatives were really small and the picture quality wasn't that great but the built in flash was cool.

Bears Salt & Pepper Set

I remember a lot of Mom's salt & pepper sets from her collection, I guess because they were on shelves in the kitchen and I saw them every single day while eating meals. This was one set she owned, probably a souvenir from some town we visited (hers did not say "Japanese Village").

Capricorn Picture

You can barely see this because the photo is so small but it is a plaque for the wall with Capricorn on it and a little saying. My sister owned it.

Rocket Hockey

My younger brother got this one year for Christmas. It was a lot of fun. You put the metal "puck" on the side and cranked the handle. Then it went flying out onto the game surface and you had to slide your goal keeper back and forth to prevent it from scoring on your side. Here is a picture of my father and sister playing it, this was in the early 80's.

Charlie Brown Book

Who didn't love Charlie Brown and the rest of The Peanuts gang? I can't remember if we owned this book or got it from the library but there were always a few Charie Brown books around the house.

The Little Fish That Got Away

I remember my younger brother having this book. The illustrations were just line drawings with no colour but it was still a well-read book.

Medical Encyclopedia

This set of 4 medical books came with our encyclopedia set (which my parents actually bought from a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman!).

Loves Baby Soft Perfume

I think this was the first perfume I owned, I remember getting a set with perfume and shower gel for Christmas when I was in junior high school. They stopped making it for a long time but I believe you can get it again.

Ziggy Stickers

Ziggy was very popular when I was a teenager. I had these stickers and used to stick them on letters to my penpals.
