This is Coffee With Jeff’s last show… of 2016.
Imagine an old man who does a podcast who decides to travel down memory lane and talk about the toys of his youth? Will the younger listeners roll their eyes and listen to something else?
On today’s show I am going to talk about three toys that were incredibly popular in my day; Silly Putty, The Magic 8-Ball, and the Slinky. I am sure that anyone over the age of 40 has played with some or all of these at one time or another.
So, I hope all of you youngsters will forgive me for this episode, but this old man does have a tendency to ramble on, you know. Just be glad I don’t talk about my aches and pains.
