Forty Years Ago Today

Yes, my G.I. Joe was ready for duty. He had the deck commander set, the firefighting suit, the space capsule. See those kids in the commercial? That was me —even if I didn’t have a pool in my living room.

The announcer was right: G.I. Joe was the greatest.

    One of my best Christmas memories was my brother and I getting this. We had to share it, but we had four Joe’s each and come spring.. it made many a splashdown from the garage roof to the 3 and a half foot deep above ground in the backyard.

    The best part: if you got one of these, it’s major money.. but I don’t think I’d ever sell.
