Leslie picked this up for me today at Big Kid in Sherman Oaks, CA as an extra Christmas present. Love this new FROSTY THE SNOWMAN Wacky Wobbler from Funko! Saw some other Rankin/Bass Funko items and they all looked great! Especially the HEAT MISER & SNOW MISER Wacky Wobblers! Will have to get those soon. Look for them!

COOL ARBY'S SIGN!
Love this old ARBY'S sign! This is not far from my home in Woodland Hills, CA. I remember this same exact cowboy hat-style sign at the ARBY'S restaurant in my hometown of Michigan City, IN when I was a kid.
