    Mine was purple. I loved that bike.

    You might be a boomer if this magazine was the hottest thing a kid could find in the magazine rack at the Ben Franklin.

    Who else had the creepy crawlers. You squirted some kind of juice into the molds. Run by electricity. Made edible bugs. They died out pretty quick. I wonder if they were burning houses down, burning children or poisoning them....

    I had creepy crawlers, but they actually came out with the mold that fit on the Vacu-form machine. You'd clamp in a sheet of thin plastic in a frame, it would heat the plastic, then you'd stick a "mold" under the plastic and pump out the air so that the plastic would form itself to the mold. You could make little HO race car bodies with it. The creepy crawler plates would fit in the square frame of that machine and it would cook the plastic "goop" into worms, bugs, etc.. Mine weren't the edible kind though. They were just some kind of rubbery soft plastic.

    Today is Vietnam Veterans Day.
    I just wanted to let you "boomers" who are Vietnam vets know THANK YOU for your loyal service to our country. Vietnam vets have a special place in my heart and are an inspiration to me. And my family members who served in Vietnam had a huge impact on me joining the Army. You paved the way for modern members of the military and hopefully because of your sacrifices both abroad and at home other veterans will never again be treated that way.
    I Salute you all!
    Wherever you go, there you are.
