My favorite MIMI and the longest lived one was a young lady named Charlene James. She apparently was a photographer's model who posed nude for some mens magazines in the 1950s and 1960s. She also was an actress who appeared in a minor role in the old Yancy Derringer TV series back in the day. She was a beautiful girl and a favorite reason for my buying the Mechanix Illustrated magazine in my youth. I have located some pix of her in her modeling days but haven't found any personal information about her. She did pose for Peter Gowland and appeared in at least one of his photography "How To" books.

Are you paying more than $5 per pack of cigs? I'm buying my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 50%.

2016-06-02T00:12:05.981-05:00

"Unc" Tom's best work in my opinionn was something more like a fairly comprehensive handbook on the makeup of most autos, domestics as well as foreign. This included the cars, the engines, the suspensions, and a primer on good driving.
I very much want a copy of this for my driving age youth. I want this because I learned more from Unc than from any other one place.
I worked as an engineering supe for 24.5 yrs, but still amasssed 0ver 3M miles in autos and as a CDL driver. It's hard for them to learn from their father, as youthful pride jumps i the way.
I'm willing to pay a premium and postage to get this book into my house.
Thank you in advance,

My great grandfather died at this hospital in 1928, and I have been trying to find the exact location of where it once stood.

We visited this TB hospital many years ago. The thing I remember about it were the restraining chairs in the basement, the graffiti on a lower portion of a rooftop, the 1985 phonebooks and old medical info we found and unfortunately this poor cat that this heavy old file cabinet tipped over on top of. Of course cops showed up and made me leave the 1985 phonebooks inside.

My grandfather owned the company that made the snake oil named Geritol.. so I wrote a book all about "herbal healing" AKA: snake oil and alcohol named Apothecary Cocktails. Cheers.

Being an old timer and experienced the first Worlds Fair in NY 1939 -- of course enjoyed all the 50s you write about.
Loved watching the Sat. & Sun shows on our 10" Black & White TV screen. All the variety shows like Ed Sullivan, Milton Berle &
the Circus shows -- Big Top, Super Circus. What ever became of all these great shows?? You tube doesn't show any more than 1-3 shows. There are Great acts and more to be shown.
Candy cigs,Valomilk, Chuckles. Wonder Bread was my favorite, and there was a commercial on Profile bread I loved to watch. Sure wished the present time was more like the old time. Thanks for the enjoyable article --- It brought back pleasurable moments to me.

Cool blog. That was my 14th birthday. I was in study-hall. Some girls behind me were singing Happy Birthday. Then the Vice-Principal came in made the announcement. One of those girls blurted out, "It's your fault. If it wasn't your birthday this wouldn't have happened."

Now, I KNOW it wasn't my fault. But at 14 these things really hurt. I remember they sent us home early from school. It certainly changed our world in an instant.

Oh, how I miss the exterior of vintage cars, especially the Corvettes. Their unique designs are actually more futuristic than the modern cars of today.

Why is it that I remember the ice cream bar with the CHOCOLATE CANDY BAR in the middle to be called "chocolate eclaire" not "chocolate fudge cake" ?

A few other people I know say the same thing.

I hope someone has an answer for this.

I was born in 1958.....if that matters.

"The times are changing, but they're remaining the same comparatively."

No one ever looks at it that way. But you're right.
