i figured that was more appropriate than a "yahtzee" this morning.

but why on earth do you still have a box of unopened flash cubes? i haven't seen a flash cube in about 30 years.

I love those flash cubes. We had a camera that used them. My Dad's camera used the old blue flash bulbs that sort of exploded when you took a picture. Ah the memories. My how time keep a changin'.

Do you perchance have the Volswagon Hotwheels car with the surf board hanging out of the window? It's worth quite a bit of money!!!

I remember putting these flashcubes on the camera and watching them explode so to speak when the flashed.
We even stomped them after they were used lol....
