Enter 1984

No, I'm not heralding the arrival of some Orwellian society, it's just a computer magazine from 1984, specifically November.  Here's why 1984 wasn't like 1984.

Snapshots in Time

I've been going through my backlog of items for quite a while now and just came across this photo album I picked up at least a year ago.


It's a collection of black and white snapshots of a couple's trip to New York and New Jersey around June of 1944.  I don't know their names, so let's just call them "Alice" and "Stan".

Little Audrey -- Just the Ads

I occasionally pick up cheap comics at garage and estate sales. I never pay more than $1 for them and typically they're worth less than that.  But there's something about looking through an old comic that takes you back to your childhood.  I'm talking about the ads.

First up is Little Audrey, May 1971 issue.  Someone has noted this issue contains a "Biblical Story", perhaps justifying it for reading by their children.

How to Have a Prettier Room!

Hey, it's time for another sporadic post!

It's Spring (though you wouldn't know it here in St. Louis where we're expected to get hit with more snow this weekend), a time of rejuvenation for nature as well as in your home.  This pamphlet courtesy of the fine folks at Johnson Wax will guide you in the prettification of your home with such hints as "Hide a steam pipe under fake ivy" and "Make a wonderful wastebasket"!

Reader's Digest Condensed - January 1967

Since it's the slow season for garage sales, I thought I'd bring back something I haven't done in a while.  Reader's Digest ads!  My grandparents subscribed to Reader's Digest. I liked reading the jokes, but never read the articles.  With these, I just like to look at the ads.

Weird Worlds 1980

You may have noticed a lack of posts the last 2 months. I'd lost that bloggin' feeling. That combined with Christmas and other extenuating circumstances resulted in no content.  But with the New Year, I'm back.

I was at an estate sale this morning and came across this issue of Weird Worlds.

Wreck the Halls with Bowels of Ghoulies 2017

Okay, I didn't really wrap up this season's posts.  I'll finish with these shots from this year's haunt.  Pretty much the same as last year, with the addition of a new "Grave-in" Theater theme.
