Flemming had quite an imagination, I liked the way he used real peoples names in the stories, if he didn't like them, like his neighbour Goldfinger. It was all pretty farfetched when we read the books but when they made the movies, they actually made all the toys work.

That might of helped but he only dreamed about having the tools Bond got.

I could see that, you're trapped behind enemy lines, being all covert and you're like "I sure could use a multi-function watch right now.".

I went out and bought a new ladder ball set. It's pretty nice.

I built a set of those maybe 15 years ago before I ever even heard of them, we used to play it with all the neighbors. The one my neighbor and I built has different rules but about the same game. Loads of fun, I still have my old set up and we just used it at the babies birthday party. Great game.

Do you have any pics? I'm, sure yours is nicer than mine by far.
