Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Hasbro Gumball Machines

Although the above pictured Popeye gumball machine is copyrighted 1968, it was sold well into the early 70's. I had a few of these (not the Popeye version). I used to take out the bottom panel and retrieve the coin, I never let it fill up with change. And usually the gum would be gone in 2 days. Although millions of these things were made, they're not so easy to find these days.

So Jen, did you used to let it fill up with change, or cheat like I did.

Jen said...

I probably cheated

It didn't last to long
it broke and I think
my mother tossed it

sad really..
