Today was the official last day of fall for me. I'm a little behind. So, I spent the morning of my day off stuffing leaves into the "Blue Bags" the City of Chicago uses for recycling "lawnstuffs".
I also tend to listen to Public Radio a lot when I am home during the day. I love Public Radio, but I am TOO emotional--really--to listen to it all of the time. Current events have me a little, um, tense. On top of everything else. (You might want to click on these pictures to make them a little larger.)
So I ESPECIALLY got a good laugh when I came across this old booklet that tells the story of "OUR PRESIDENTS"...
NERVINE "Take it when you're cranky, fidgety, sleepless, nervous, anxious, irritable, depressed...I guess just about any time you are restoring an old house..."
Now, about our presidents...
Oh, yes! Back to our regularly scheduled....ADVERTISING! For MORE NERVINE! Take it when you've been ROBBED! (Take it by the bottle full...it says that....right there.)
And byAlka Seltzer! Interesting that the Alka-Seltzer ad is superimposed over a picture of the White House.
I don't make this stuff up. I just report on it. Honest.
But it's super funny.
P.S. This is for Anna from Little Red Boat
Anna--I feel the record is the least I could do...but I wish it could be this other request you had: "a proper global commitment to fair trade, the AIDS crisis and the Kyoto treaty." (We'll both wish for that together.) However, if you change your mind about the handbags or shoes, we have some posh (for, um, 1942) ones in the attic. All the best from ATP, J
