    Cherry Ames! Blast from the past -- I read my mother's copies. AJ Cronin -- Nevil Shute and Alistair McLean were other authors I remember reading way back when.

    Looks right. Cats play with some toys once, and then never again. Some are roundly ignored. Then they attack pieces of wire and milk pull-tabs.

    What got me started?
    Dad always took me to the flea market with him when I was a kid. I learned to haggle!
    I bought an 18k and ivory Buddha charm for 25 cents. It was the best deal ever! I was about 10 years old.

    Seems like parents have been a major influence for a lot of you

    I've got a wonderful mum who is as close to me as anyone could possibly be

    Dad on the other hand was a Romani gypsy tramp who I never knew

    Just realised the word dad seems so alien to me, not something I've ever said before in context

    My first purchase was a set of bowls for $5 at an auction. I went with my grandpa Crowley...I was 7. The bowls were full set of Roseville Ideal bowls and I still have them! That lead to 50+ years of buying Roseville, pottery, Melmac, cars, motorcycles, etc. (I don't have much time to post due to caregiving duties, but I wanted to share the influence of early childhood experiences.
