Five on Friday

Busy week, late getting this on.  I've been fascinated by Godzilla since I saw his first movie way back in the 50's, he was the perfect "monster".  And in time he grew to be a helpful monster.  Probably my favorite movie was the one with Godzilla and his son.  I liked them all, except for those made by Hollywood, they were terrible.




Through the years I've gathered a few Godzilla's and for my birthday back in September my  family gave me more, so Godzilla will make up my five.


One:    
This is one of my newest Zillas, our daughter gave hime to me for my birthday in September.  He is articulated and so  cool.



Two:
This is one that she gave me a couple of years ago, he's plush and really quite cuddly.










3.  This is a collection of Godzilla postcards that Mac gave me as part of my birthday present.





4.  This Godzilla has been around for awhile, he use to sit on my desk when I was teaching.  He can be spotted around Christmas time carrying a candy cane that Miss Kitty likes to swipe.



















5.  This Godzilla needs a bit of explanation.  The critter on top of him is Gudetama a very unmotivated egg and his lack of motivation effects those around him.  Thus Zilla has become a bit lackadaisical .




















That's my five, hope you have a great weekend.

  8. Interesting Five! My son loved Godzilla as a child. He has Asperger's and would always focus on one thing. For a while it was Godzilla. Everything he wrote for school had Godzilla in it. I think his teacher was glad when he finally moved on!

    Happy Five on Friday

  11. I have never seen Godzilla, would you believe it? I do love a quirky collection though and your Godzillas look fun. Much more fun than collecting porcelain kittens. x

  14. Godzilla! You are so funny. When I was a child there was an animated tv series about Godzilla and Godzooky but I've never seen the films. Hope you are having a good weekend. x

  20. Those movies used to terrify me when I watched them on TV as a kid. I don't know which scared me more - Godzilla or Rodan. (I was a cowardly child - couldn't even make it through the Wizard of Oz for fear of the Wicked Witch of the West and those awful flying monkeys.)

    Funny how Godzilla seems so cute now!

What's Cooking?

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
