The Saturday Picture Show, July 5, 2014

 Marsupials are way ahead of people when it comes to child-toting!  They don't need to go out and buy a papoose sack.  This does remind me of a very popular gag from third grade.  Why did the baby kangaroo get in trouble?  For eating crackers in bed.
 This cat knows he/she is related to the King of the Jungle, and therefore struts confidently down the lane.  It's good to have connections.
 This makes me happy in the summertime.  It makes me happy in winter, too, but I'm crazy about snow and cold.
 This is Neuschwanstein Castle, in Germany.  If the Neuschwansteins ever invite you over, plan on a fun evening if you can get them to play Hide And Go Seek with you.
 So they held a redhead convention.  Interesting fact:  red-haired boys in Baltimore are called "Reds," while, everywhere else in America, people call them "Red."
Meanwhile, millions of Englishmen and women gobbled their Bile Beans every night, since they promised to make them healthy, bright-eyed and slim.  This is an old sign in an English village.  They don't make this product anymore, but the village paid a sign painter to redo the sign just for old timer's sake. Bile Beans were touted as a cure-all for just about anything related to digestion or general health.  The small, black, gelatin coated beans could be used to treat biliousness, cirrhosis and other liver complaints, blackheads, all female complaints, indigestion, constipation, rheumatism, sciatica, lumbago, gout, general debility, dyspepsia, headache, insomnia, and piles.  During the influenza epidemic of 1899, Bile Beans were said to alleviate symptoms and speed recovery.
