Happy 4th Anniversary!

4th birthday button
America On Parade, 1975

This week marks the 4th Anniversary of my blog.  To celebrate, I shall do as Walt Disney World did on their 4th birthday with this cast member birthday button.
Below are the top three viewed posts over the past 4 years.  Apparently diet drinks are popular Walt Disney World commemorative items.

Happy Belated Birthday, Minnie

Stuffed Minnie  Mouse
Not to be overshadowed by her man, Minnie also celebrated her birthday this past week.  I shared her 'other half' last week.  So here is the feminine version of this 80's plush toy from Walt Disney World/Disneyland.

Happy Birthday, Mickey!

Stuffed Mickey Mouse
Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse.  This coming week, November 18, Mickey turns 87 years old.  This plush toy made for Walt Disney World & Disneyland is not that old.  Based on catalogs I have from the mid-70's, this is a newer model.  I am guessing early 80's.  It was made in Korea and measures 11 inches from his seat to the top of his ear.

This Thing Really Floats

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea postcard
One of the great things about collecting postcards is some of the messages you find on the back.  The sender of this post in 1973 was very excited about his "fantastic voyage" on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  "Would you beleve that this thing realy floats."  This card, as with many in this early series, was printed with & without the Florida Flag logo.
