Collecting stickers was a popular hobby for kids in the mid-1980s. For my birthday one year I got a sticker album and started placing my stickers in them. One of the more popular stickers to collect were “Garbage Pail Kids” which were a more gross version of “Cabbage Patch Kids”. They bore funny names and duplicates which had two different names were “twins” (or at least that’s what we called them). They came in a pack like baseball cards and collectible card games do today. Eventually they made a movie based on the cards. I thought it would be fun to show you some of the Garbage Pail Kids that I put in my album. I had many more but they were still backed and eventually I traded them away or whatever. These are all of them which I have left. In my album I wrote a smart remark. It had a place to describe your favorite sticker and prettiest sticker. In both cases I wrote “Garbage Pail Kids.” These photos are low resolution so nobody can accuse me of ripping off the art, but the dates which you can’t read for the copyright on the DuckTales stickers help to date the album. The date is 1986. The Duck Tales stickers, if I remember correctly, were a promotional for Halloween which being fluorescent would help kids be seen at night so they wouldn’t be hit by cars, which was one of the things we were told we should be terrified of. The cold war was hot and we were apparently all targets of even benign aggression (more about that some other time). But I can’t remember where I got them. Maybe a cereal box?
Bible Verse of the DayIsaiah 55:6-13 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
