The Saturday Picture Show, June 4, 2016

I guess if you have to solve arithmetic problems while you're in bed, it would be more fun to have an abacus to work with than a giant electronic calculator.
It must be common to cats of all sizes; they seem to love to be IN things. This lion king is ready to be pushed in a new direction.
A goose, a gander, and their goslings.
Kate Murtagh is 96 now, but 37 years ago she posed as "Libby the waitress" for Supertramp's "Breakfast In America" album.  She has obviously taken the advice of the hit track on that record, and is taking the long way home.
I always notice that the Coliseum in Rome seems to have been the model for those cookie-cutter ballparks like Three Rivers in Pittsburgh, the Vet in Philly, and Busch Memorial in old St Loo. But unlike those 1970's monstrosities, the Coliseum is still standing!
Flappers and finger snappers! The Roaring Twenties were at their loudest in June, 1925, as shown here on The New Yorker's cover.
Kids in California don't get to play with lightning bugs, or fireflies, as we sometimes call them.  We punch holes in a jar lid and make real organic lanterns!
