a nice toy for the child in your life

description in three forms: short, medium and netsky.

this is my new idea to save your time and tempers

short: Toy Mini Cooper car, radio controlled, Radio Shack, $20, buy a nine volt and three AA batteries.

stop, that is all


medium: The toy car comes in red or blue. Is fully assembled. All you do is install the batteries and screw the antenna onto the very simple hand held remote. The box contains a full, spare set of wheels and tires PLUS a complete drivemotor with wheels and tires. This is a rugged enough little car with lots of spares and it runs at a fast walking pace, is small and pretty much child proof. It steers and backs and zooms better than most cars i see driven around in miami.

stop, that is all

netsky form:

In the aftermath of a glum election day my mate and i went to the University Shopping strip mall across from U of M. I remarked on a mini cooper in the lot near our parked car: what a neat color combo! metallic sky blue body identical to the Miami sky at 2PM and black roof. I've seen so darned many -dozens- of Cooper color packages but this one was the first to appear in this blue in my experience. Wow, sharp!

We go into radio shack to get some other junk and there is this stack of display boxed Coopers. Choice of red or BLUE. That very same blue black combo i'd just seen outside.

Imagine that. Yawwwwwn! Well, not to me! I took it as a Divine Sign. Buy for me, daddy? He bought and I got this neat little car to run around the house. I needs must find a small child to give the toy to.

Uhhh... Ray next door has a great grandson five years old who comes every other weekend from Palm Beach County. I shall give the toy car to Siggie.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
