Sausage and Fry’s anyone?

Here we go again, Fall. The beginning of the dirge of content for us. We do have some col stories coming in. Stay tuned. But today I need to clear the fridge of some small story parts. YUP. A FALL SAUSAGE DAY. So sit back and enjoy a day of story loaf, a story stew, and SAUSAGE! I already miss boat shows.

Is everyone having fun? 

One of the nicest post cards out there. Better than a photo!

The ruler is an odd addition. BOAT And FRUIT?

A Sea Cool Doo..

I love this photo. The little girl is so ready to go boating!

Ready to camp

What is Sea Doo telling me here? Oh boy. Or a girl?

DELL’s DOCKS! Love the sign

That is one happy Yappy!

Betty, hey Betty, go stand next to that Tree. What Tree? Betty!!! put on your glasses. Oh that Tree? Look, there is a lake?

I love the names of the family places up in Minn.

This is the actual photo of the second wearing boat hats became dumb looking.

I would love to visit a place like this one day.

Just a nice vintage scene.

THE ROCKET! They sure liked giving boat rides on Clear Lake

BING’S BOAT WORKS! Well, at least we now know what made the Pep Boys Matchbooks so happy?

    Can you IMAGINE the backlash that these matchbooks would create if they were released today? 🙂 🙂 I like the captions.
    Shop Calendars just arnt the same these days!
    Hey and they dont have any tattoos ?

      One little tattoo is sexy. A boat load…not so much. IMO.

      With everyone getting more tattoos than a cool Maori warrior nowadays, in about thirty years the old folks homes are just gonna be gross…..all those white blotchy skinned saggy tattoos…

      You are right about those matchbooks…made today?

      No way.

      He is probably having a martini at 3:00 pm at the cocktail bar he built in his family room in 1967….thinking of the good ol days….

    Sexy matchbook covers were popular in the 50s. I never saw any as a kid. My parents must have shielded me from it. Saw this one on the internet this morning. I wander what curb service ment.

    I always say “Tattoos are good for one thing: Identifying the body…” That argument kept our kids from getting them, anyway! 😊

    The “ready to camp” photo here on Harsens Island would be someone going to a “lug Island” We have lots of cottages here that are only accessible by water and EVERYTHING must be “lugged to the cottage” ergo Lug Island.

    I am almost positive this photo of the cool dude on the left in the Capatins cap and beard is from Floyd R Turbos personal photo archive. Floyd – are you out there?

    I love the styrofoam koozie, that the guy on the right has in his hand. I would bet thats a Schlitz tall boy sticking out of it. Good times.
