Earlier today (April 23, 2011), I was going through old photos while visiting my parent’s house. I came across a photo of myself holding a gift I received for my birthday in early December of 1987. It is a toy robot from Radio Shack called Robie Junior. I took this thing everywhere I went. Loved it. In fact, I still do. It is one of a handful of toys I have kept since I was a child. So, I had my fiance take a photo of me with it this evening, almost 24 years later. And if you’re wondering, it still works. If you want more information about Robie Junior, go here.
