The Saturday Picture Show, February 18, 2017

Dateline: my own neighborhood, right around the corner across from the Senior High Rise where I'll probably spend the last years of my life beginning in maybe 10 years and ending, who knows? I'm not saying it was one of the residents who attempted to open a drive-in window at the laundromat. But I am saying that you had all better come visit me at the old folks' home senior living center, or I'll get in a car and drive over to see you, and you know how that will go...
This is the amazing ├śresund Bridge, which takes you from Sweden to Denmark (whether you want to go, or not). It's 5 miles from Sweden to Peberholm, in the middle of the strait. There is a 2.5 mile tunnel called the Drogden Tunnel, and that takes you from Peberholm to the Danish island of Amager. 
Remember the first guy (or woman) in the office who figured that you could write in yellow hi-liter on a master copy of a form and Xerox it, without the yellow showing up? Here in my continuing fascination with food plummeting from heaven during commercials is how they make it look like the parts of a cheeseburger descend from above to make your lunch.  The food sits on wires which do not show in the pictures.
This was New York in the 1970s, in case anyone thinks it's impossible for big Eastern cities to get themselves cleaned up for company.
On the other hand...this looks like an ad for Vigoro, which makes everything turn green (including your neighbors!)
I don't know the nature of this trial, but this fellow is obviously translating for the jury the words of the accused pumpkin.
Part of our Famous Jackets In History series: this is a leather bomber jacket worn by General Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower during World War II.  I'm telling you, you get good quality leather, and it will last you for years and years and years.

And we wrap up this week's fun with a bird who recognized himself in the book the man is reading, and came in for a better look!
