I’m on the road in Wyoming, Delaware, visiting an old dear friend whom I haven’t seen for forty years. How wonderful to see him again.
Sorry I wasn’t able to post yesterday
Check it out.
Sears Roebuck All-Purpose Buffing Wheel Compound. What?!!! She probably has a buffing wheel somewhere squirreled away. God Knows. But that’s nothing. Check it out:
Rawleigh’s Antiseptic Healing Salve. Good for Man and Beast. And it’s guaranteed under the Food and Drug Act, June 30, 1906.
And it only cost fifty cents.
What this salve is for mainly is cow boobs.
Hey, It’s great stuff. I remember in 1949 my mother bought a tin of similar stuff in the same kind of can. It was Watkins Salve, Good for Man and Beast. My mother called it tit salve. And it worked like crazy. That goop could suck the pus out a boil over night. No kidding.
You women out there, you know it’s true!

You name it, you got it…
You do this, right? You don’t know what the key is for but you’re afraid to throw it away:
Frau Grace’s match book collection. Maybe when she’s pushing 90 she’ll pull out this bag of memories from bars that she got loaded in sixty years ago.
That would be U No Hoo.
If you noticed my little black pinkie, that was from another brick a few weeks ago.
Hey, I used to be smart.
Been there done that. When Loinfruit was born I was at home drawing magazine cartoons and playing daddy-mom. Actually it was wonderful. Frau Grace was out there making bread and I was at home with tiny little Loinfruit. Best time of my life.
Does your wife save her little treasures? Here’s a little boxful I came across:
Let me tell you ladies out there. This is the kind of thing that drives husbands nuts.
At the time, Mr. D’Angelo was .president of King Features Syndicate
I’m back at my place in Maryland. Check out my herb garden.
Hey, I’ve got a green thumb. A little weeding…
Wait a minute! What’s this in my garden?!!
Some old duck eggs. I fried them up but they were terrible.
Elvis is negotiating with another tire kicker…
I don’t have internet here, so I can’t post too much. Next Thursday I’ll be back in service. Just to show you where I am –
That’s not my piece of crap boat. I let my neighbor use my lift.
