4th of July (Vintage Style)

Happy Start to the 4th of July Weekend!!  Let's do it in style this year!!  Hot Dogs, Burgers, Brats, Watermelon, Corn on the Cob, Tomatoes, Ribs and Vintage Post Cards!  Yes, it's that time of year again, when we look back on the unique artwork of ages past.

First of all, this is a real crap parade.  And, where did they find identical quintuplets who owned sailor suits?

Okay, I don't even know where to begin with this one.  The dude is creepy.  He has the smallest feet I've ever seen; how does he keep from toppling over?  He's wearing rouge, and there's something hanging out of his pocket.  Oh, and he's holding a giant rocket between his legs, inviting someone to "go off" with him.  Ahem.

I don't know about you, but my ideal July 4th vehicle doesn't involve something that resembles the Hindenberg or a pencil. 

Shudder.  This girl creeps me OUT.  She looks like a cross between Angelica from the Rugrats and Nellie Olsen.  I have a feeling she intends to destroy a small town with those fireworks.

Again, kids with the fireworks?  I can't tell if this one is supposed to be a boy or girl, but I am digging on the red shoes.  Kids--don't play with matches!  (or TNT)
More kids with explosives.  I am hoping the JULY 4 burning things are candles and not fireworks, because they're going to go right up that boy's leggings if he's not careful. And, those exploded looking things remind me of nipples or boils. 

Oh.  My.  Gosh.  Dude found a date. 
Match made in Heaven?

Happy 4th of July Friends!!  Enjoy our wonderful country!!

JuJu!!!!! You MUST put a warning up with these posts--I have to clean my screen off now because I spewed my Diet Coke out I was laughing so hard! Where do you find these? The Nellie Olsen girl is the best...WHAT is up with that--was that considered cute in the day? And then, "Dude found a date." Really, it's too much! Happy Fourth, Miss JuJu (and happy birthday to your adorable grandma, too).

Word: intemi

I keep my lingerie and hosiery in my intemi (get it? "intimates"--lame!) drawer (I keep my drawers in there, too!)

I was bouncing in my seat when I saw we had another cards review, and I hadn't even started to read it yet. I LOVE when you do these. I laugh so hard. More, more, more!!!!
