FQ Topic: Childhood

FQ1: Where did you live out your childhood years?
Como, Sydney, Australia

FQ2: As a child, what was your favorite toy, book, television show, and cartoon character?
Toy?  As a little kid it was "Ducky" an elongated rubber duck thing.  In 1983 I made "Cutie" - essentially a pompom which I still have and travel the world with.

Favourite book?  I didn't read many books, I found reading long stories tedious.  I liked TinTin and Asterix comics.  Choose your own adventures.  Horse books.  
TV show?  I remember lots from my teenage years.  As a child?  Probably my earliest memory of a favourite tv show would be Whacky Races.  I was always Penelope.  We used to watch it with a kid from our school, Cosmos, before we went to school.
Cartoon character?  Dunno.  I liked Warner Brothers cartoons later on, and Inspector Gadget..

FQ3: Charm us with a favorite childhood memory...
Here's a whole blog of it...

FQ PHOTO-OP: Show us a photo of just how adorable you were as a child.
