I surprisingly can't find a picture of it, but in the late 70s/early 80s I had a toy helicopter on a stiff wire with a simple flashlight-looking red handle with one button that held batteries. You push the button and rotors go faster so you could control whether it went up and down. Way too dangerous to survive because if you pushed the button for long enough it just flew around and could hit you with the rotors but anybody have one of those or know what I'm talking about? Googled a bit and couldn't find it.

Anyone remember watching Hee Haw? I would lay in the floor at my Grandparents and watch it. There was alot of hot country girls. Junior's Used Cars was my favorite sketches.

I had one of those too (except mine was an airplane) back in the early '60s when I was watching this on TV:

Damn sam - the first vehicle I ever kept had an 8track player in it.
I promptly removed it for a knob type cassette!

Would you believe Verizon told us less than 10 years ago that we had to stop using ours? It's still packed in a box...somewhere. It was the best cell phone I ever used. Neter lost a call, never a crackle.

I've caught a few Hee Haw reruns on RFD-TV on Sunday nights lately. I forgot what a good show it was.

Where, where, are you tonight? Why did you leave me here all alone? I searched the world over and thought I found true love, you met another and PHHT! you were gone!
