Blast from the Past

This is another blast from mom’s past – the Waterful Ring Toss game.  It had hours and hours of fun play time that mommy had with this toy!  These toys came out in the 1970’s and were a hit.  They were hours of entertainment to get all of the rings on the two sticks in the water.  You pushed the white button on the front to control the water pressure to get the rings up in the air.  It took some maneuvering – that’s for sure!

Dad had some of these games too but again… where are they now?  He probably got tired of trying and tossed the entire game – Snorts.  They also came in different colors, different events of ring toss and different sizes.

I looked this item up on ebay and they were around the $40-$50 range.  Can you believe that?!

Did you have any of these great little toys?

Date Night at the Movies

 This past weekend my humans decided to venture to the cheap theaters to see the movie Ride Along starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.  It’s been out at the theaters for a while and mom and dad have been wanting to see it.  They told me about it when they got home.  It sounded like it was hilarious.  In fact, mommy said her tummy hurt where she had been laughing so much.

The movie takes place here in Atlanta, Georgia.  Mom and dad actually recognized a lot of the buildings which was cool.   Kevin Hart’s character is called Ben and he is currently a security guard dating Ice Cube’s character James’ sister Angela.  Got that?  James is a cop – a good decorated APD detective.  James doesn’t approve of Ben who wants to marry Angela.  Ben has been accepted into the academy and wants James blessing to marry his sister.

To prove that Ben can take care of Angela, James tells him to ride along with him for one day to see what he is made of to be with Angela.  James calls radio and tells them to give him all of the calls that will scare the heck out of Ben.  It *almost* works.  This ride along turns into a wild night with one of the most notorious criminals in the city.  It is so funny.  Mom and dad highly recommend it for some fun and chuckles.

But you know with my humans going out unchaperoned, there is going to be something that they do that makes me shake my piggy head.  Of course, something happened at the theater – snorts.

You see, mom always goes for the tub of popcorn – that’s my mommy!  Daddy always wants a little chocolate.  During the movie mommy tells daddy,  “Your Buncha Crunch just jumped in my popcorn”.   To which daddy replied, “No, your popcorn jumped into the my Buncha Crunch”.

Dad, I hate to tell you this but I think mommy is right.  Your Buncha Crunch jumped in her popcorn.  The proof is in the picture.  But hey guys, you don’t have to fight over this.  Just bring this little piggy home the bucket of delightful corn and box of Buncha Crunch.  I’ll take care of it for you.  🙂  Really, I will.20140515-113520.jpg
