Micro Machines

April 20, 2023

Thirty-four years ago my family packed up everything and left Texas, heading to Utah where we’d end up settling ever since. We left on my birthday. That same day, my best-friend Jordan gave me a 20 car Micro Machines collection. I loved those cars! Over the years my collection grew and I played with them all the time; sometimes I’d be able to buy some, other times they would be prizes for practicing the piano. Beyond the cars, I ended up with a carrying case and a few little play area cities to enjoy. Sadly, one of them is more or less destroyed because I gave it to Emmett too soon in his life, and the other one is not in the best condition, but it’s is still playable. I recently brought them all back out for the kids to play and they’ve had fun all playing together.
