Snaps From/For Mr. Hamby

Sent some "shiny" ephemera to Dustin by request and recieved a shiny package in return.  It included Trashpo, Xeroxpo, a Hand-drawing, and a little plastic figurine.  There was definitely a military theme running through everything...

(I've tried using different browsers, but I think my computer is sufficiently old enough and been surpassed by so many system upgrades that the platform can't handle things anymore--which means having to buy a new computer soon...UGH.  Sometimes being on the technology slow…
