So I finally got my check... probably weeks after most of the country as the last two digits of my SS number placed me at the bottom. Just curious.. what did all my fellow U.S. tax payers blow their check on? Anything interesting? New lens perhaps? Down on a new car? As for me.... nothing really exciting. Feeling a bit more American and enjoying fatherhood lead me to the local toy store with my 19 month old son. We purchased a few things for him including a Radio Flyer Scooter. For our international TPF friends, the Radio Flyer brand is a synonymous with good O'classic American toys dating back to the early 1900s. It all started with that cute red wooden wagon that many of us probably have in our childhood memories. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2650924 I put it together last night after my son's bed time (and trying really hard to ignore the "made in China" sticker... sheeesh!!!). I was surprised to see much of the ol'steel construction that is missing in today's toy products. One of the welds was pretty darn ugly but at least it would be covered. Son woke up this morning to a big smile and just hopped on it learning to scoot around the house. Yes... he has discovered the bell.... I am still hearing it even as I sit here at work... TING .. TING ... TING ... TING TING.. The rest of the stimulus check went into savings and the final payment to a credit card.
