Remember Trapper Keepers? Memories! (In my poor mimic of Barbra Streisand…) As kids return to school, it brings me back. It was one of those things you wanted, am I right? Remember the Velcro rip of the flap opening? And then you could decorate it with stickers and the ones that were like raised bubble-types? Of course, you had to have all new loose leaf paper. Can’t remember now (see, ’cause most GenX-ers are in their 40s…just kidding…no, I’m not…I’m serious…), but I think I had TKs with Ralph Macchio, Menudo, and I believe New Edition. My male cousins may have had The Dukes of Hazzard one. sigh. By the end of the school year, the puffiness was long gone, and the spongy filling peeked out of the separated seams. But, the simple joy of having one at the start of the school year was one of the best things ever!
Oh, those back-to-school days! Where does the time go?
