What Is The Oldest Thing You Own? – #TQOTD

Today’s #TQOTD is a Flashback Friday from 2018 and Steve and I had the same answers for this as we did last time we did it. You guys really did better then we did … actually I did. I have an old Ms Pacman machine and Steve has really old balls (Musket Balls from the 1800’s). Christine wants something her mom bought at K Mart but again .. read on because The Click of 6 has some really cool stuff.

It’s embarrassing and funny all at once.
