He decided it was almost certainly worth a small fortune by now.....being vintage and all....and decided to check out that fount of valuation knowledge....eBay....to see if he would be able to take an early retirement.
Turns out he will have to keep working for a few years yet!
In the process however, he discovered that people will pay good money for those old gems.....Game and Watches. Now it just so happens that I had a few of those in my youth...and so I was sent to check out the boxes of mystery in the back of the cupboard in the hope of finding them....just in case he could take early retirement on my money instead.
The Game and Watches remained elusive...and no doubt a trip into the roof cavity will follow at a later date to locate those....but I did find this little hidden treasure.
It's my "port" from kindergarten....and inside....some carefully selected school books from my Primary School years.
I obviously didn't keep them all....just some very early ones....and most of my Poetry and Creative Writing. My favourite subjects back then....and still enjoyed today....hence this blog.
Here's a delightful self portrait I drew on one of my first days of kindergarten....
....something was terrifyingly wrong with my legs!
Then an exciting story about cracker night.....from first grade.
Obviously written back in the olden days....when you were allowed to set off fireworks in your own back yard.....those were the days.
But my favourite of all.....a report written covering Toffee Day in fourth grade......
Which proves I was a ratbag back then too!
