Welcome to the 2014 edition of 24 Days of Turtle. The awesome advent calendar features daily TMNT Christmas-themed treasures. There will be festive fun, gracious gifts, and Turtle Powered prizes!
Let's cruise through the snow to DAY 2 of the countdown.
I often spot vintage sleds when scouring antique shops and flea markets. The rusted metal and splintering wood is an alluring combination. Although enticing to the eye, these aged masterpieces are not a symbol of my childhood. None of the kids in my hometown hit the snowy hills with a heavy duty sleds of that nature. Nope, we were sliding through the powder on pure plastic.
Unfortunately, I had a plastic purple sled that was a big as a boat and as slow as a turtle. And no, not the cool, mutated kind. Other kids bolted past me in an excited blur, while my snow wagon crawled down the fluffy hills. Races usually left me sulking in last place.
Now decades later, the throne is mine for the taking. I recently tracked down this plastic sled brimming with the proper kind of Turtle Power. Small and spherical, I plan on gliding down the slopes in a snow-melting blaze. When the next storm strikes, me and my trusty TMNT sled will be prepared.
The fine folks from the Far North continually survive brutal winters. So when it comes to sled construction, I trust Canada. Those natives know their snow. This vintage beast better deliver unrivaled speed, even if I am a 31 year old dude riding a 25 year old sled.
Does skiing with swords seem like a bad idea to anyone else?
Each day of 24 Days of Turtle will feature a Turtle-Powered present.
The season of gift giving is upon us. I may not be Ol' Saint Nick, but I can be the Santa of the sewers. Today's gift is a scan of a 1989 TMNT classic cartoon gift tag. Forget eBay and save a few bucks. Empty your ink cartridges and print loads of these things. Cover your gifts in cowabunga.
The image is pretty large. Resize it to your liking!
