"Cat's paw" was one of the answers on Jeopardy today.

Haha, I love it! Thanks for sharing, bookworm. I wonder if I would have gotten the answer? :-k

I saw this at a fill-a-bag rummage sale and obviously thought of Top.

Similar to this incident from a few years back, I had the thought "Top wouldn't want me to just leave this here" so I got it. I was already buying a bag of other things so it was no added cost to just toss this in.

I don't know if I've ever seen a more Top-tastic book in my life (other than the one he wrote, of course.) Nice find, bookworm!

Excellent, hopefully you have a VCR still. \:D/

I'm not good at ranking things, it's probably not in my top 3 but its one I like a lot (basically all the 1970's ones are super fun because they had no budget due to the Japanese recession at the time, but that didn't stop them from churning out entertainment \:D/).

A lot of the older movies had multiple VHS releases, but that *looks* like the same one I have, I think. Not 100% sure of the color but the pictures are all the same.

Ha, I do! I forget how uncommon that really is these days, because I've always had one.

I'm assuming this is the first release, since it says "never before on video."

My mistake - I clearly should have read more carefully. I now see it list the running time, which makes less sense for a book. ;) Good to hear you still have a VCR. Me too! I haven't used it for years but refuse to give it up.

There's a gas station called Colville's Too on the way to my grandma's house. It's really weird because the gas station's in Rearden or Davenport and Colville is like 2 hours from there. Anyways, it always makes me think of this forum.
