I have VERY fond memories of the candy counter at Sears - where a kid with a quarter could buy a little bag of candies...yum!

Newberrys had a soda fountain (cafe) which was my mother's favorite place to get a hot dog - because they made buns out of folded, toasted bread.
But my very favorite thing to do - was to play
BUT guess who I found on the grounds of the Renton Highland's Library?? YUP! One of the original turtles!!

Personally, I LOVE those turtles... and I would happily have them all in my yard if I could!! Thank you to whomever was the artist who created them!! You brought a lot of fun to my young life, and happy memories now!
