And I still have the original color sleeve from my "Who's Johnny" 45 rpm single. It's kinda ratty after 14 years, including surviving a house fire that we had in 1991. The record itself did not survive the fire per se. It was all warped and wrinkled from the heat. In 1992 I went to Tower Records in New Orleans, just before they quit selling 45's, where I bought a 45 copy of "Who's Johnny." which had been rereleased under the Motown Oldies label.
|Also during the summers Lego Number Five and I went on some cool adventures out west. Here's some shots of him in a mountain stream in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, and another overlooking the Grand Canyon. I used to carry him everywhere in my pocket, so I had to superglue him together. I also had to write the Lego company to get a catalog of replacement parts. His little plastic joints were always wearing out. My mom worried about me.||
In January of 1990 I made a new addition to my Short Circuit family. I sewed a big soft corduroy Number Five. I didn't know quite what to make of him when I finished him, but I got attached to him pretty quickly. He's still doing pretty good at almost 11 years old! He has a little zipper pocket on his toolbox to put stuff in, a velcro panel with his red cutoff switch under it, and a tool arm held in place by snaps.
