On the usefulness of childhood toys

I recently needed some sort of stand for this TV antenna. I wanted something small and unobtrusive but didn't want to have to buy anything. I thought of using pieces from my old Lego set. For nostalgic reasons, I've kept my childhood Lego set. I had a very small set, and this was way back in the day before Lego made these fancy kits that you can now buy. My bricks were red or white or clear. I ended up making this little stand.

I used most of the set some time ago to build a little house which sits on a bookcase. It seems so primitive compared to the stuff you can build today.

Awesome! I love that you have used the part labelled 'garage'.
