I good eye caught my GI Joes in a pic on a different thread. I expect the request for pic may be coming so here it is. And a little more to the story. I was BIG GI Joe fan as kid. It may be partly because my big brother was a Marine at the time. (14 year spread) Any gift occasssion I asked for GI Joe Stuff and I had a bunch. The Jeep, the Space Capsule and more clothes and guns than you could count. I had a friend a year or two behind me that I played with. I can tell you these Joe's saw real combat. Firecrackers, bb guns you name it they saw action. Somewhere around 11-13 I'd had enough and gave EVERY piece I had to him. Time moved on, we lost touch around junior high. I had not seen Steve in 20+ years when one day he shows up at my church. we talk about all we did back then and the fun we had. The next week he shows up and gave me what is in the picture. All of it was mine except the one with "hair." I never had one of those. And I haven't seen him since. It's been another 20 now....
