"Toy land, toy land, dear little girl and boy land,
While you are within it, you are ever happy there.
Childhood joy land, dear little girl and boy land,
Once you've passed its portals you may never return again.."
How often we sang that old Victor Herbert song back when I was a boy! Who among my visitors, male and female hasn't experienced the joy of a trip to downtown Trenton to visit Swern's, Goldberg's, Hurley Tobin's, or the numerous other department stores that proliferated in a bustling city? Some years ago, I wrote a column entitled, "No bee bee gun, and that's final." How I wanted that same Daisy air rifle that was coveted on Jean Shepard's "Christmas Story!" Yup, my mom even saw to it that I never got that childhood treasure with the same "you'll put your eye out" story.
