Overcast, windy, and cold
Yesterday's I introduced Richard Mueller Jr. briefly, and was going to write a complete post about him and his fine website. He's however stopped working on his fine website, and has given a good portion of his material to two fine people that I had met before, and helped me in 2012 with my blog. When Richard mentioned their website and company, and I went to their site, I immediately recognized them. They are Jim Sneed and Judith Lile who have a great website by the name of Old Wood Toys. What makes today's post another enjoyment for me is to see how so many toy people in the States (USA) know each other by direct contact or via the Internet.
When I went to my original posts about Jim and Judith, I couldn't believe how "rough-edged" my posts were just a mere 2 years ago. I knew I was going to revisit Jim and Judith, but I'm surprising them with this post. I'll inform them after I post, and see what they say.
Jim and Judith have a unique niche in the world of old and antique toys. They focus on wood toys. I periodically write about wood toys, but it's always nice to see toys made from natural materials such as wood, especially since most older toys were made by hand. I'm presenting OLd Wood toys and Jim and Judith again, but today's post is just more of a "reintroduction". It's just not possible, nor would I want to write just 1 post on these important people to the toy world, and I wouldn't.
