DANGER WILL ROBINSON DANGER!!!!


You know how it is, you wake up one morning and you know you need to make robot mugs. Here is my first. Michelle was asking for a teapot with a flower on it. I am thinking I will make her a teapot with a robot on it instead.

I remember when I was 6 or 7 watching LOST IN SPACE reruns every morning before school with my bowl of Captain Crunch. Sit there waiting for the school bus, working on a wee little sugar high, digging Will and his robot buddy, the TRES S3XY JUDY, slippery Dr Smith, Don, plus mom and dad and the other sister. My wife whenever there is something awkward or stupid or dangerous going on flaps her arms like the robot and sez it "DANGER WILL ROBONSON DANGER!".

I think we have some sort of psychic connection. I signed up for a pen pal awhile back through a local stationary store. I just sent my pen pal a drawing of a robot thinking of a rainbow last week. We got robots on the brain!

That's wonderful! The moment I saw the photo on FB "Danger Will Robinson, Danger!" popped into my head!

Once the taxman gets done with my bank account I gotta have one for my robot crazed kid!
