The Saturday Picture Show, December 12, 2015

This is my all-time favorite Peanuts cartoon, from October 4, 1969.  Truer words were never spoken!
There's nothing like that says "The holidays are here" like when the Wienermobile rolls through The Avenue  At White Marsh.
It's instinctive, really.  Nature teachers mother Cats to carry their young Cats around until they can fend for themselves.
This is Hosny Mubarak, former Egyptian military and political leader.  I'll not say a word about him, except that the pinstripes in his suit spelled out his name.
It's the best part of waking up! A little caffeine-y smiley face in your cup!
It's the time of year for decorating the house for the holidays. Some people go with the Scrooge look (nothing at all) and some go crazier than loons, requiring the local electric company to build new transformers to keep the neighborhood lighted. I'm glad that most prefer a classy look like this.
It was not a big hit movie when it came out in 1983, but it's one of those pictures that became bigger on tape and TV and now DVD than it was at the theater.  Jean Shepherd's "A Christmas Story" is always a highlight.
I had forgotten this kid magazine for years, but I read it every month, back in the day.  Do they still publish "Jack and Jill"?
