Tonight on The Curse of Oak Island, Gary Drayton finds…… a nail! Or part of a button, maybe a belt buckle. We’re not really sure and he found it in his room at Motel 6. Could be Roman in origin or Knights Templar! Hmmmm, I may be watching too much History channel.
St James 5th grade. The Principal came in to the class and told us what happened. She did not try to cushion the news at all. That’s how nuns were in those days. No nunsense. No grief counseling. “Children, the President has been assassinated. Let us pray and you are dismissed for the day.”
Well there was that one time in Tijuana when I was on the third day of a three day pass. A young lady I was “dating” suggested I might like it if she……… Wait, never mind. That wasn’t me. Must have been two other people. Never been to Tijuana!

Does anyone else remember the comic strip Joe & Asbestos? It could not be published today for obvious reasons. It appeared in 1924 created by Ken Kling when his former boss, Bud Fisher (he’d spent three years as Fisher’s assistant on Mutt & Jeff) talked him into betting on a hot tip in a horse race. Kling put hundreds on win, place and show bets, and lost every penny when the horse came in fourth. In fact, he’d never even been to the track before.

I think they may be in the Automat, the old Horn & Hardart where for a buck (all in nickels) you could get a decent meal. Back in the 60’s my Dad and I would go there after taking in the Boat Show at the NY Coliseum.
8 inches long! How does she wipe her…… Oh wait. Never mind. I’m thinking of someone else.
