The Saturday Picture Show, October 11, 2014

This 50's flashback reminds us the days when comic books were printed and handed out to remind us of the constant fear we were supposed to feel.  At any moment, jackbooted storm troopers could take us all into custody and force us to eat Russian food and be dirty commies!  Most people figured out that the Russians would leave us alone if we'd stop telling our children that Russian women all looked like Nikita Khrushchev.
Autumn is by far my favorite time of year, and here is why!  Even raking this many leaves would be fun.
Dateline: Milltown, Wisconsin, where the local Fire Department and Dept of Natural Resources had to be called in to rescue a bear from a hollow tree.  They cut a "window" into the tree, the bear ran off into the woods and everyone went home happy. We can assume that Mama Bear was watching from a safe distance.  A kindness to animals is always repaid!
Certain people who have yet to develop their potential remind me of cabbage.  Cabbage is not so tasty raw, and even steamed or boiled, it's not that great, to me.  BUT  - give that head of cabbage a chance and it might turn into cole slaw or sauerkraut!  You never know!
There was an English band called "Hedgehoppers Anonymous" in the Beat era...their claim to fame was "It's Good News Week," one of those mid-60s song that were supposed to make you think about the state of the world.  I dreamed of forming a band called Hedgehogs Anonymous, and here was the lead vocalist.
Just because I miss this kind of phone hanging on the kitchen wall!
