Happiness Is ' Just A View-Master Away '

The View-Master is a toy which people of all ages remember vividly from their childhood. It's one of those rare high-tech inventions that has maintained massive appeal across multiple generations. It has become a pop-culture icon. I can't remember how old I was when I got my first View-Master, but I do remember how I felt when I glimpsed through the viewer and saw 3-D images of places, famous people and events, both real and imaginary, past en present. Suddenly the world was there at my fingertips. It fueled my imagination, and I couldn't wait to grow up and visit every one of those places I saw through the viewer. And then you do grow up, and life happens when your busy making other plans, or so they say..I didn't see half of these places, but sometimes on a rainy day I grab the View-Master, look at those old images and I'm a child again. Sometimes happiness is 'just a View-Master' away.
