Images of love… or something.

Someone drew everything I love.


Tony the Tiger Diver


Hours of fun… WE SWEAR!!!

Yes sometime in the 1980s I was eating Frosted Flakes and I received this magical Diving Tony toy.  My dad couldn’t finish off that 2 liter of New Coke fast enough for my liking.  (But can you blame him?)  So, finally empty bottle was filled with tap water and Tony the Tiger started his Diving Adventure!  Wait, I just thought of something: somebody must have this on Youtube.


That was about the same amount of time that applied Tony as a diver.  The toy itself was made of a hard plastic and had a tail that stuck out going in a straight line up the back.  If you set Tony on his tummy it was easy to imagine the legs and tail as fins on a missle.  Tony the Diver was now Tony the Tiger Striped Weapon of Mass Destruction!  The only thing that could stop the Decepticons when they took over the Death Star!  Ah, I miss my living room floor in the ’80s.

34 years ago Led Zeppelin did this to me.

August 15, 1979 an album was released.  Wrapped in a brown paper cover with a stamp on the front it became my favorite album of all time a good 16 years later.  I still own it on vinyl, cassette, CD, and somewhere in a box here or at my parent’s house 8-Track.  It’s Led Zeppelin’s In Through the Out Door.


Now, I’ve already talked about Fool in the Rain on this blog Continue reading
