^ I remember the Field Training Center.  They just don't seem to make toys like that anymore.

Keunert,

I was extremely sick growing up, and in the hosptial constantly.  I was given toys and books by all kinds of family members growing up who were very concerned as to whether I wold make it to being a teenager.  Especially my grandpa, whom I miss dearly.

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.
