it reminded me about my beloved 'Disneyland Comics' i used to read when i was a kid. every week mum would buy me the latest comic and i would pour over the pages looking at all the pictures and activities. mum would usually read me a comic at night and i would read some of it myself during the week as well...
i saved them for YEARS in the top cupboard of my bedroom and wanted to have them forever... years passed and then i left home, moved around and eventually thought i should get all my 'things' together. suddenly, no-one could find the Disneyland Comics !!! noooooo ... disaster... there was almost 300 of them and so had either been dumped, given away or burnt...
ebay to the rescue... i started buying a few at a time and then ... JACKPOT ... a man in the UK was selling 200 odd comics for one pound! the cost of postage getting them here was the big expense, but now that i have the entire set again... it's completely worth it.
do you have any wonderful treasures that hold lovely memories for you???
|Peter Pan was my all-time favourite...|
|... pretty as a picture ...|
|... I used to dream about having a dress like Cinders...|
|... and spent a lot of time doing drawings of Donald, Daisy and the cute Huey, Louie and Dewey ...|
|only about 1/3 of my complete set... impressive hmmm???|
