Thanks for the memory's old friend.

Sometimes a toy means more then just being a cool representation of a property you enjoy. These toys that we collect might mean nothing to some but might spark a vivid technicolor memory of a different time  in others. Be them good or bad those memory's are still a part of us and make us who we are.This particular toy does that for me. I remember exactly when and where and why I got him and because of the circumstances around him he never made it in to the "play with" pile .He has been carefully cared for and once long ago he had a cohort that he spent all his time with. His friend was lost to me through my own careless actions and for years after I refused to buy another copy of that figure because I could replace the figure but the memory attached to the specific figure couldn't be replaced. So after the loss of the one I have held the other close and very dear to me.He has been a constant part of my life for 32 years. While other aspects of life have come and gone twisted and changed he has been the unchanged thing , a tangible link to something that played a massive part in who I am today. But change is a part of life and its time for my old friend to say his goodbyes and head to a new home. I know where he is going he will be cared for and appreciated and with the above information I hope a little of the memory silently recorded in him is remembered in his new life. Goodbye my old friend.
