German Love Postcard Besiegt

A day late, and at least a few dollars short on posting this vintage German postcard. Love, love, love.  I hope all had a reasonable Valentine's Day.  I don't know about you, I'm not real attracted to children with guns and spike-head helments kissing on me.  My German grandmother is spinning in her grave right now...sorry.  This is pre-nazi Germany, around 1910-15 or so.  WWI era.  Oh yeah, yet another time Germany tried to rule the world.  It's really hard sometimes (ok, most of the time) to have pride for my ancestral homeland. Don't hate on me because I'm more than half German...

Frosty Winter Day

This is kind of how I feel at this stage of winter...It's cold, there is crap on the ground, I'm wearing way too many clothes and I've got some stupid lump of snow with a couple of sticks poking out of it in my yard.  Is this Frosty on a bad day? Is this me on a bad day? Where the hell is his face, hat, etc...this little girl seems somewhat confused.  Me too.  Maybe this is an alien and he wants to phone home. Help me out here folks, my brain is frozen.  I found this photo in a pile of junk at an estate sale, maybe this is your long lost self, I sure don't know who it is or how everything turned out after the snow melted...

Saturday Night Fever at the Scientific Supply Store

Ok, ok,ok...now I know it looks as if this dapper guy is ready to go bust some moves with John Travolta at the disco, but what the hey is he doing at the store with all the microscopes??  Maybe preparing some slides to examine after going to the club? Slides of what you might ask? Use your imagination on that!
 Good god almighty, I'm glad folks don't dress like this intentionally any more.  What were we all thinking back then?? Probably about the same thing we think now when we buy a snuggie or other weird crapadelicious thing.  But hey, Merry, merry xmas and such to all and Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday White Bread Beer Boy!

Oh lordy, lord.  What the hell kind of party food is this?  I see cake, white bread, beer and ketchup...oh yum!  Looks like an endless childhood nightmare of mine.  My Grandpa Bob used to make me pickle sandwiches..and the best of the best, butter and yellow mustard on white bread.  What were these adults thinking?  It's a damn wonder I didn't end up in a trailer park with about 3 dirty babies hanging off of me!

Don't Look!

Ok, here's a great shot!  I think she was finally sick of all the picture taking....At least that's what it looks like to me. Or maybe she just doesn't like the way she looks?  I've been away from the blog for a while.  Moved and I'm still getting adjusted.  Will try and post on a more regular basis.

Party Time Paradise!

What can I say about this image?  What will Scott say?  What will the numerous asian character comments be? (damn, I wish I could read those...anyone, anyone?)  One guy, two women, beer bottles and a straw hat...sounds like a party to me!  Let 'er rip folks...give me all the comments you can, I've been living up on a mountain top in the woods and the internet is hard to get up there, so I'll post when I can, yee haw!

Dancing Girl

I'm a dancin', dancin', dancin' fool!  Here is my odd photo for today.  No idea of who she is or what or why she is doing...I'm sitting in a coffee house in the middle of nowhere soaking up the ac and jesus music.  Wow, got to love that!
