Happy Rascal Day
« on: April 29, 2024, 11:21:56 AM »

This is the 80th anniversary of the day the "Our Gang" TV show had their last show.  It started September 10th, 1922 and finished April 29, 1944.  Many people remember "Our Gang" as "The Little Rascals" so it seemed to me that we should be celebrating this in some way.  So, I hereby declare this to be Rascal Day and encourage everyone to get out their rascals and give 'em a spin.  I also encourage everyone to take a look at Mark Hayward's video about these fun spinning items.

I talked to Mark today on the phone and we had a good rascal laugh.  Some guy from Finland is trying to get a hold of some now but there do not seem to be many (any) available anymore.  This kind of shocks Mark as he said he had nearly a thousand of them at one time!!!  I spun every one I had today which is 11 plastic, 20 rusted metal and 23 shiny silver metal ones.

Here is a link to another thread where we talked about those rascally rascals.
