    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Mark, Mad Magazine didn’t accept 1881 because in most fonts the top loop of the eight is smaller than the larger. I was eleven then, and don’t remember too much else.

    MCMLXXXVIII (1988) ?

    We had a party line when we first moved to Anaheim. We shared with an older couple down the street. My mother made it absolutely clear we were not allowed to listen in on their conversations. We would have done it anyway, but they were boring.

    Isn’t the movie “Pillow Talk” with Doris Day & Rock Hudson based on an unfriendly couple sharing a party line?

    No. Senora definitely means married woman while Senorita is unmarried woman.

    I had a Brownie camera. I still have some of the B&W prints that I took with it. My second camera was an Instamatic. I can still remember how much easier it was to load those little 110 film cartridges than a roll of film in the Brownie. Also harder for my little brother to open the back and ruin an entire roll of film as he did with my Brownie. I took my first color photos and my first slides with that Instamatic.

    Mark, do you remember all the hoopla about the year 1961? Not only was it a palindrome, but if you turn it upside down, it reads the same as well. It was even on the cover of Mad Magazine (the first “upside down year” since 1691 and the last until 6119).

    I thought Elly’s library job was part-time. I suppose I could be wrong, it has happened before……

    Good morning, Vagabonds (still evening here, though)

    Fellowship luncheon today. It looks like next week we will have it here at my house.

    Temp didn’t make it above about 95 Monday. I was surprised.

    Mary Worth maybe she’ll photograph the angels.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    I’m with David & Rita on this one, Arye. The closest I get to an international friend is a woman at church (coincidentally named Jan) who is from Hawaii.

    Continuing in the low 100’s here. Overnight lows have climbed back into the mid eighties, so I don’t open the windows at night for now. 9:30 AM and it is 92 degrees already. Our temperature doesn’t peak until about 5 PM.

    David, I understand your frustration completely. I don’t care if Adam wants to sleep with Steve instead of Eve, but they don’t have to scream it in my face.
    What I found very amusing was an article I read a few years ago about the gay sex shops in San Francisco. It seems that a lot of the long-term gay couples have adopted or had children, and they don’t want the blatant sex images right out there on the streets where they live and shop for the kids to see.
