It’s the personal blog of a somewhat bored retired airplane factory drone. Oddly, my name anagrams to “Never Jet Hot”. Go figure! I have the gamut of old fart hobbies, collecting old matchbook covers, and other midcentury odds and ends; because I want to go back there. We hunt for Geocaches, and used to travel […]
There is something satisfying about crushing can after can, it makes a wonderful crunching noise, almost as good as the sound of breaking glass.
The Mrs. bought some books at a thrift store a while back, and found a Hallmark card inside- (Estimated to be from 1975) The card says on the front, “I’m always telling other people how neat I think you are” (Next to a generic chubby cartoon bear), and inside, “Today, I’m telling you.” below that, […]
Folks were flush with postwar cash in 1946, and they were asked what they would like to splurge on. This little girl wants a horse in the worst way, and it looks like that’s how she will get it. I think this has the makings of a sitcom, trying to hide this steed from her […]
When I was a kid, I used to like to go over to the neighbor’s house when they weren’t home, and pretend I was driving one of the “project” cars in their backyard. I came home smelling of motor oil and sadness, but maybe that’s what kids were supposed to smell like back then. Many […]
I like the facial expressions on this one. The CO looking down this soldier’s gun barrel makes everyone uneasy. Even in the best case scenario, potatoes will be peeled.
I don’t really NEED a new desk. I just ran across this one in an email from Newegg. The extra desk space would be nice, and it’s just $69 and FREE SHIPPING. Still, my old desk is fine. What has me about to click the BUY button, is this blurb I found in the fine […]
Little Lulu* was once a mascot for Kleenex. I don’t think I would like my Kleenex to be as sturdy as Lulu’s, only sturdy enough to withstand sneezing etc. *Little Lulu was a comic book often found at the children’s dentist office, like Highlights. Goofus and Gallant set a pretty low bar for children’s entertainment.
Not sure what the mask situation is from one day to the next, government and trasport still mostly say masks for everybody, but private businesses must get a different flavor of Corona, they’re mostly “whatever floats your boat”. I wonder what army sentries are doing about this? So happy to be retired!
Back in the early days of MAD magazine, they had some competition- Such as HELP! I like the intricate drawing style of some of this early work, there was a lot to take in, and I don’t just mean Jane in this Tarzan parody. Unfortunately, a lot of the content of Help! was a bit […]
I have noticed that newspaper cartoonists often use variations on the same gag on any given day. For example, the other day, Dilbert and F minus ran variations on a joke involving consultants shooting themselves in the foot. Dogbert is probably right… the people that would buy that book would do so without stopping to […]
