||A Story about Major Matt Mason
by Mike Sullivan
I'll be 35 on the 6th, not
married, almost....... but she thought I was too materialistic, Ha Ha! She
couldn't be more correct, started buying MMM stuff and GI JOE stuff a few Months
ago, when I was feeling nostalgic in front of my computer, DAMN those out
of the blue ideas that come to You that one types into a search engine!!!
I remember having many MMM
figures, the space station, crawler and cannon, alot of the other stuff I
dont remember, but intend on getting all of it!!!! ALL OF IT!!!
Even though I didn't think
of it as a kid, I suddenly have the urge to deep freeze a MMM figure in the
freezer, minus the foil, is this such a bad thing? (as i rapidly approach 35)
Funny how as a kid, the son
of a Firefighter, all of my action figures had to all be proficient at Firefighting
and rappeling, didn't matter, the Major, GI JOE, they all responded in Tonka
Fire engines to multiple alarms set by my Dad in the winter, in the fireplace.
I can't believe my parents put up with that racket, what a bunch of spazzo's
me and my brother were, too much sugar, probably! Also, wasn't it great, when
you were a kid, and different scales didn't bother You, all action figures
were compatable! Although I hate to say it, even as a kid, I always thought
Captain Lazer was a little on the effeminate side................and for some
reason the Major would always talk my Joes into kicking his butt!!! Poor guy!
My "if I win the lottery"
thoughts lately have been to buy the old landfill site in town (which is now
capped and topped off by a driving range) to lead a mission to recover old
toys that were tossed away years ago, God is that sick or what!!! Maybe I'll
deep freeze a MMM figure at the Firehouse, as I too am now a Firefighter,
just like Dad was! They think I'm sick at work too!!
