Save My Walrus

Save My Walrus
If you've ever watched the cartoon, "Ren and Stimpy," you'll know what the title means.

This will be for The Sunday Challenge group, which I have just recently joined.

Here's my entry for this weeks theme in The Sunday Challenge group - "a famous or precious souvenir acquired from a past holiday." It is now 12.23 a.m. on Sunday morning as I post this to the group and it features a 6" tall replica of the Empire State Building in New York City. I picked it up when I was there in 1999. The toy truck is the approximate size of a Matchbox or Hot Wheels vehicle.

Other than this, I don't have too many souvenirs of places I've been because I mostly collect post cards. But, I've got my picture up, so I'm good to go.

Ren and Stimpy was a cartoon about a dog and cat who were buddies. In the particular episode I'm referencing, they play fire fighters. They are trying to rescue people out of a tall, burning building when this woman leans out one of the upper windows and says "Save my baby!" she tosses out her baby and they catch it. She proceeds to throw out larger and larger things until she gets to a walrus and she shouts down to them "Save my walrus!" The walrus nearly squishes them when they catch it.

I had an Empire state Building statue like that when I was a kid. We traveled to NYC every summer when I was a teen. Nice photo!

congrats viking on breaking your tsc virginity! i like this a lot and especially on the white background. judging by the scale of the empire state building, the new york fire department must have a very big garage for its fire engines

Of course, since sad times now, new york buildings are not only to be famous in the world, the fireman are very famous to ! I love the little vintage building, I sure would not resist to one of them if I would fulfill my dream to visit the place !

Cool souvenirs and photo Kenneth! I somehow missed Ren and Stimpy growing up, but I did date a gal once who named her dog after Ren.
