  1. Love the pics! Thanks for posting them! You know....I actually remember one of the lunch boxes. A classmate or two had them way back then. I remember my brother a miniature General Lee that would launch from a wristband. He just lifted the transparent lid, pressed a button and boom out raced the General. It went far too! He also a had long sleeved t-shirt with a jumping General on the front. It was his favourite shirt. He lived in it. LOL

  5. Oh I didn't notice that I could put more than one selection. Note to self: read posts before clicking.....it was in bold red too..... I picked Saturday but I'll be here on the chosen day. I don't think I will have a problem with any of the options. Super cool idea!

Right after January 6th like many Europeans I know here.
