AM radio joy


Father's day 1976 and the sentence "Now you can listen to the ball game in your den" come to mind.

They sure don't makem like they used to, or do they? Has anyone found my Oscar the Grouch AM radio? I think I forgot it down the shore. Poor guy wasn't too happy about all the sunshine and yelling.

Keep up the good work, this blog is hilarious and haunting at the same time!

Fire the photo editor. Everybody knows you don't put pens upside down like that, the ink vacates the tip.

Ah, the photo cube! My grandmother had a bunch of these around the living room. Sitting those plastic things filled with blurry Polaroids of last Christmas next to the nice, shiny silver and brass frames holding studio portraits of previous generations, my childhood brain couldn't help but think, "We've lost something here."

Is that a young Richard Lynch in that pic?

Good one Neal!

@Dancin' Homer: So true. But if they put 'em upside down we'd only see those "boring" little blue/red end caps. =)

Man, I totally remember those pens. In the '70s, I remember those being the only pens that were around.

My grandma also had those cubes, but she never put any new photos in them. Just displayed them on the table and admired the model families in the photos.
