“Life's just a merry-go-round. Come on up. You might get a brass ring.”

SUBJECT: Vintage Fisher Price Merry-Go-Round
This was my last day of Thursday freedom from work AND children until August when they return to school – so you know I didn’t spend it at home cleaning like I should have. Oh no, no, no. I ventured to the new Goodwill Outlet in St. Louis, where they sell by the pound and new
crap goodies are wheeled out in huge plastic containers every twenty minutes. *singsong voice* I. was. in. heaven! I found a nice Pyrex divided dish, some baseball cleats for StellaDella, several books, some vintage Christmas items, and a bunch of other tchotchkes I really didn’t need, all for the low, low price of $15.76. That price included this toy as well – I remember seeing it in the Sears Christmas Wish Book as a youngster and thinking it was pretty nifty. Funny, I don’t ever remember asking Santa for it though. That could be why I never found it under the tree.
