Ahh...didn't he have any weapons he could pull out of his sled to defend himself? This MM is a funny one!

Quirky cool...
Where'd you get the Minute men?

Aileni,
Maybe they seized the toys in the sleigh.

Linnea W,
Cap guns and super soakers just don't cut it against flintlock rifles.

#167 Dad,
The cowboy and revolutionary soldiers were in a box of my childhood toys my mother saved. Don't know what happened to the really cool army men I had. You know the ones I mean--olive drab grenade throwers, bazooka shooters, and the like.

It is a reminder of my little green plastic soldier that sat on a green horse that I played with during World War II. Outside in the grass. It was a time to make believe the soldier with the plume on his French hat from before their Revolution, was actually a GI Joe. I still remember those days but had forgot until I saw your post. Wonderful.

This one made me laugh out loud. What a great imagination you have!

David C. said...

Abe,
That is a great memory. I'm glad I helped conjure it up.

Maraca,
With people milling around with assault rifles and pistols outside presidential events these days, my little tableau doesn't seem so surreal.
