Bunches of Babies

This is a kind of creepy vintage German Postcard.  Why would anyone want to send a postcard of babies sitting on the pot??  I'm so confused.  The toddler on the left is smaller than the babies...what happened here?  Radioactive waste perhaps?  And how about the happy dancing egg?  The baby in the center somewhat resembles George W. Bush I think.  Come on folks, especially you Scott...I'm looking for comments!

Famous for being famous #2

More of the 'Famous for being famous' Iris Love dog party at Tavern on the Green invitations from past years.  Manhattan socialite and her ga-jillion dogs!  I had the extreme dis-pleasure of staying at her 'dog house' in Vermont several years ago (I think that's where it is...I have tried to wipe away all memory of this experience).  She literally had (and I have no way of knowing if this is still so) a real house that is full of dogs and a 'dog wrangler' living there taking care of them.  That's all I'll say about this.  I prefer to leave it up to your imagination....suffice to say, it was 'interesting'.

Famous for being famous #1

Here's some really fine weirdness for your viewing pleasure!  It just so happens that at one time in my life I had 'access' to the finer things in life...and oh yeah, the strange relatives that go with it.  My ex is related to Ms. Iris Love, who is known as 'being famous for being famous".  We were always invited to these 'dog parties' at Tavern On The Green in NYC during Westminster,  but I never had the opportunity to go.  I'm quite sure it was a freak show, and so I'm not so sad about that.  But, saving the invites and posting them here is even more fun than hanging with the rich and famous and their dogs.  La-te-freaking-dah!

Good Golly, What a coat!

Good lord, what a coat this guy has on.  His wife looks so demure and washed out in her bland white dress.  He is one fine dandy in his bowtie, hat and oh my god, that coat.  I kind of wish I had one of those myself!  I wonder where he got that?  It looks like it is around the 1920's and in the middle of no freaking where!
