There was a Christmas morning that changed everything for me. The day, Christmas began like any other Christmas, my sister and I rushed downstairs. My littlest sister was not yet in the picture, she would join us after next Christmas.

There was a box for me. It was a big box and it contained an Erector Set. Over the course of the next year, I built so many cool things (a car, a tower and so much more). It, the Erector set was the first toy i had that wasn’t one thing it could be anything.

It is one of my favorite toys. The Erector set was metal and came in the days before the Lego craze!

    • when we moved from Indiana to Maryland the twins decided they were not going to take their car collection with them.

      we found a place that wanted them.

      SO the twins started bringing them downstairs, they had many more cars than we expected.
