      Suddenly I’m back in elementary school. The sound of velcro tearing open a Trapper Keeper, the anticipation for reccess, and the sight of rattail haircuts on all my friends.

      Thanks for posting Stephen.

      A lot of the 1980s needs to make a come back, such as toys, old school comic books, old GI-Joe, Hot Wheels, old matchbox die cast cars, and tons of the old trapper keepers and tin lunch boxes.
