Sausage Sunday – Come Aboard!

This is quite a leap of logic here. Beer? Check, Sunscreen? Check? Gallon Of Oil? SCREECH? What? Why do we need a gallon of oil dear? I am NOT going out on that thing!

My old friend Sausage Sunday. Been raining here in Virginia. I suppose the only good part of all this rain is a nice lush lawn and no more bitching about low lake levels. Even out in California there is water-ish again. So get out there and burn up some more Fossil’s. Anyway, happy Sunday Sausage..

Come on, you can do it. UGHHHHHHH!

Thats a whole lotta hair!


I will say this is a very smart ad! If you have been in this situation, you PRAY nothing goes wrong


Great illustration.

This might be the coolest paint can ever!

The wave – a little stiff, but the poor gal had to sit there and pose for hours

Fun Slide with a very cool table and chair set

Great for checking for fuel leaks? Right M-fine

Cat eye cruising

Cool old photo

I wish my boyfriend had a larger motor

Very cool vintage 1930’s TEXACO book

So here is how the ad meeting went. I GUARANTEE IT. The creatives presented a bunch of ideas. Dog and Pony stuff. Then the CEO said, it’s like we bottled up the sound. And that was that. Yes sir! Abottle it is. Then the team went back to the creative room and screamed. WTF! That bottle would expload? Who in the hell would… And now here is the ad! Printed

I am sorry.. there is NOTHING sexy or enticing about this Post Card.. And where is the Beach?

Bob, do not take my picture.. OH! So sorry Karmi, dont worry no one will see it. Its just a slide. HELLO UNIVERSE!

Maybe its all the sleazy news I see these days.. But I am not sure this ad would fly today. Sad, because its a great idea and image of a father and son

All downhill from here? Maybe it meant something else then

How many times did folks get stuck trying this.

    Nothing but fog here in Annapolis. That classic Zippo fuel leak finder is really cool…and useful!

    “These are great days for Motor-Boatmen” What a great quote. I think Troy sent in the pic of the 85 Evinrude! The boat ramp takes me back to the late 50s when thats how ramps were. The bottled sound of a mid 50s V4 Evinrude. I would like to have a bottle of that right now. Could that strange boat engine be a Wankel Rotary Remember the big push on those in the 70s, The sleezy women smoking cigarettes? on the cruiser. That is just class. I love Sausage Day!

    With the “identity craze” these days, maybe the bikini clad girl in the Evinrude “Sleeper” ad would prefer a Johnson?
    Working as a programmer for Ga. Dept of Revenue in the ’70’s I was loaned to our “Art Division”, consisting of two women, one who was an Italian, a graduate of the Florence School of Art in Italy. As a freehand lettering specialist, I helped her prepare an ad appropriate for this date that ran on billboards before tax season throughout the state. She drew a very shapely woman on the right with a partially completed state income tax form that I lettered with the caption beneath that I laid out saying “The right form, properly filled out, gets attention”. Probably couldn’t run that ad today. That was 44 years ago. I loved working with that woman whose drawing was a lot like a self portrait which answers why I was so willing to work with her as a single male in my 2o’s.

      I remember working for the state of Florida in the late ’50s. Girls in the office with short, tight skirts and high heels were like a daily fashion show. Oh! to relive my mispent youth.

    Sitting in an audio suite and just checked Woody Sausage day. Laughed a whole lot at the ”Bob, do not take my picture.. OH! So sorry Karmi, dont worry no one will see it. Its just a slide. HELLO UNIVERSE!”
    So good.
