I wanted to share a couple of pictures of my Dukes of Hazzard collection. I have added a few things not shown. I will need to get a more updated picture when I can get the family back together for a group shot. Yee-Haw!
I just got this Construx Super Set and with some loose pieces I had it is nearly complete! Special thanks to Tricia and her Brother. I will keep this forever. I remember having these as a child and they were as fun to put together as LEGOs! I did not have the power pack shown in the commercial below but all the rest of the pieces are familiar. Anyone else remember these?
Really cool Pic I found at
I don’t think I’m going to be a huge fan of the new Footloose but I will give it a whirl sometime.
Here is the old vs. the new trailer in one spot. Enjoy!
Look at what I found this afternoon. It’s called Pac-Man Ball Darts but that doesn’t mean we will be throwing sharp objects at each other inappropriately. Sorry. The game looks really fun. You basically toss the Velcro balls at the target and try to land in the larger point areas of the maze. It came with the original instruction sheet too! This is just the kind of thing I like to collect. I can’t wait to hang it on the wall.
I was in a laundry mat/tanning salon yesterday and I spied a Ms. Pac-Man machine in the corner. I dropped in my 2 quarters and for a few fantastic minutes I was transported back to an arcade 25+ years ago. Wizzing around the mazes was just as satisfying as it ever had been. Trying to impress my friend I repeatedly chomped all 4 ghosts with the power pellets picking up the coveted 1600 points. I completed the first 3 mazes and I had forgotten there was 4th! Despite my best efforts I couldn’t reach the high score which was 119,000 but I came in at a respectable 106,000. I told the two 20 something attendants that I would return soon to conquer the machine. They smiled and laughed but something tells me they just don’t understand Pac-Man fever.
I need an idea for a new “welcome to my site” screen for the main page of www.RetroRescue.com Please throw out ideas or email me something. Should I use a collage or just one cool image. Some kind of original artwork? I was thinking about the flux capacitor but I am very open to any retro concepts.
Yahoo posted this article in their games section yesterday. It features one of my favorites Pac-Man.

As you can see in the photo I’m working on a nice little collection of Pac-Man swag including this board game.
I recently sold the Pitfall board game on ebay.
