The above pile of clothes and toys are items the kid, who will soon turn 14, has outgrown.
I particularly like the progression of weaponry through the ages: the bow; the flintlock musket, the Kalashnikov, and the pump-action Nerf rifle.
These toy guns might have been put in the pile due to the kid’s growing awareness of the prevalent gun violence of this country. Here he is at a local rally for Governor Kate Brown sponsored by Moms Demand Action for Gun Violence Prevention.
Mad Magazine also is on the outs, although I was 28 when I finally gave it up.
Time moves on.
