Still have some spare parts from the maxx f.l.a.s.h. even after building a big old robot and a tiny tank for a tiny bot (not included, he is a cool little gumball machine toy who was a fun freebie toss in with another roboforce) to tool around in. I love the g.i. joe homage colorway, perfect for making vehicles as well as bots.

Some of the components are so fun, treads, sensors, and really neat tampos and colors.

@maximillian_deersteak knit a sweet surprise of a warm hat for Sisto Brak! They say you lose most of your heat through your head, so maybe this is the solution to his chilly situation! (And springtime is rapidly approaching)

He will enjoy his swampwalks in far greater comfort next week!

Yarn is the #gatorfreighter colorway from @risingtidefiberco

Dave Porter’s Return to School  by Edward Stratemeyer, 1907

“Carl was made to bow until his nose touched the floor.”

Edward L. Stratemeyer (October 4, 1862 – May 10, 1930) was an American publisher and writer of children’s fiction. He was one of the most prolific writers in the world, producing in excess of 1,300 books himself, selling in excess of 500 million copies. He also created many well-known fictional book series for juveniles, including The Rover Boys, The Bobbsey Twins, Tom Swift, The Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew series, many of which sold millions of copies and are still in publication today. On Stratemeyer’s legacy, Fortune wrote: “As oil had its Rockefeller, literature had its Stratemeyer.”

Random Scotto factoid – my favorite region of the Walt Disney theme parks Adventureland. (If you could wedge the haunted mansion in there, it would be almost a perfect sweep.

Sorry, Frontierland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. (Not that I don’t love you guys too, but Adventureland is my “favorite child”… note, I have never visited Galaxy’s Edge)

Some reasons include (in no particular order, and not exclusive) –

Tiki room
Shrunken Ned
Pirates of Caribbean
Dole whip
Kungaloosh!
Society of Explorers and Adventurers.
