25 Days of Thanks- Day 14

Thankful- Ducktails

Growing up in the 80s and 90s, Ducktails was where it’s at.  Money, adventure, robots, a crazy sidekick, science, sports.  It was a little kids dream all rolled into one.  We raced home from school to turn on the kitchen tv, grab a snack, and watch the Disney animation block that included the awesome Ducktails.  I could go on and on, but, wow, Ducktails was fantastic.  Animation on tv now-a-days doesn’t have anything on what we grew up with.

What really got me thinking about Ducktails was a story I heard on NPR today.  You can read it here.  The gist of the story is that the federal government has stopped production of the presidential themed dollar coin.  In addition, there are 1.4 billion coins sitting in a safe somewhere in the U.S.  1.4 billion coins.  Billion.  Hmmmm…  You thinking what I’m thinking?

Thanks for reading…
