Looking out my window on the new Pokemon Go craze, made me think about my own childhood. If I had to choose the two things that I played with most and ones that served to take me out of my world, they would be my bike and crayons. I heard yesterday also, there are 44 blue crayons now. Wow. (My bike was nothing liked this btw-used, painted with a dull finish, old style brakes).
