Yesterday Kyle and I were driving to get “Boys Regulars” when the subject of “Toy Story” came up. Fast forward to what blew me away – the film was released in 1995. Since it’s Sunday morning, some of you may not be doing math in your head right now, so…
2020 – 1995 = 25
Twenty-five years? Where did they go? Oh, and Toy Story 3? You know, the one that made you cry when it looked like Buzz, Jessie, Slinky Dog, Rex, Hamm, the Potato Heads, and Woody were going to end the trilogy in an incinerator? Well, if you didn’t, you should have cried. Anyway, that one came out in 2010 and you’re on your own on the math. And speaking of Woody, Beth told me that earlier in her career, the company she worked for had some kind of a promotion with a toy called “Interactive Woody.” Let’s just say that had fun with that one.
What else happened in 1995?
- 168 people were killed at a Federal building in Oklahoma City, including 8 Federal Marshals and 19 children. The act of domestic terrorism was led by an angry white guy, Timothy McVeigh. He considered government officials “fascist tyrants” and “storm troopers” and proclaimed, “ATF, all you tyrannical people will swing in the wind one day for your treasonous actions against the Constitution of the United States. Remember the Nuremberg War Trials.”
- OJ Simpson, who was obviously guilty was found innocent.
The more things change…
