"Toy Soldiers"

As I just commented to poetreader below in the "Tiger's" post. I'm a sucker for a guy, man or boy, in uniform.

Peacenik tho' I sometimes am.

Toy soldiers are a particular male fetish. Indeed I once had a part time job at the "Toy Soldier Company"

Many years ago I needed some extra dough, and a pal put me in touch with the loons that ran that show. I was in pigshit heaven.

We sat around all day, including da boss, talking military bullshit, and model making.

Perfect job for a 13 year old,...though at the time I think I was 28 or so.

We had a ball.

Btw I still build models, and sometimes collect toy soldiers.

...sue me.
