I'm the Iron!!

For as far back as I can remember, I was always "the iron". Day long monopoly marathons with my cousin Randy would result with several need to go outside breaks and the addition of a finance company to borrow from. But.....I was ALWAYS the iron!!

So imagine my disbelief and heartache when I heard that they were retiring my iron. And not only retiring it, but replacing it with a shiny cat. Good grief!!

There are some things in life that need to remain as is, and this is one of them.

I will be scavenging for old games so that I can preserve the iron for future generations - Ava and her cousins should not grow up without knowing.....the feel of the iron and it's daylong marathons!


  1. I feel your pain. Do they still have the car? That was mine growing up, always wanted the race car. I will check around our area and see what I can come up with for games and send them out to you.

  2. I remember the iron! It was probably the only time I wanted to get near one! LOL I certainly do not use one in real life (thank you tumble dryers!)... but yes, it is a great little icon and treasure. Have fun collecting them!
