My friend, John sent me this 1950's Woolworth counter menu.
I remember when, do you?

.Just multiply time 10 or so to get today's prices.

The main problem with this is that us senior citizen's fixed incomes don't multiply time ten.

Adi Can . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Have sweet dreams after her ordeal at the doctor's (vet)

Update: Adi is home from her vet. She has eaten and is doing well. And now, I might say, she is having a little nap.

If I knew what she is dreaming about I could interpret them for her.
Read the first comment to see what all transpired at the Vet's.

No, not Colorado

Adi is home, we got her Monday. She was glad to see us but sad to leave Billy and Karen. Today I'm starving her because she has a doctor (vet) appointment at 10:30 and no food for 12 hours. That is to make her 'senior checkup' go right, they take blood, etc.

Colorado is no further along than it was last night. Since you guys are due an update, I thought you might like a couple of pictures I used on my other blog for Wordless Wednesday postings.

Dusty, a fine Tennessee Walker

Dusty belongs to our neighbor who is in Colorado for the summer. Dusty and Ebony (not pictured) and Luke (ditto) traveled with the family to Colorado for the summer.

Sleeping dog at Pompeii under sleeping Mount Vesuvius

I found this dog sleeping when we were touring Pompeii. A lot of people slept every night under Mt. Vesuvius, it hasn't gone off for a couple of thousand years, surely it won't go off in their lifetime still.

You may see this dog again on a Sunday post. I did NOT wake it up. I do not know its name. I think it is a stray dog, there were a lot of loose dogs there that day.

Answers to June 26 "Feet and Face" quiz -- Congratulations to all who tried!

This Quiz was posted on Thursday, June 26, 2008 (link). I promised the answers and winners today:

Honorable mention - Feet - Felisol

As you can see, this contest was a super success (not)! As Ray said, it was hard.

Today's quiz below has a few hints. See it below and work on it. I hope to get more entries this time and perhaps a correct answer(!).

Face pictures, Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 , 6, 7 and the seven feet letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G:
for , Anthony, Tim, Terry, Megan, James, and Mrs. Jim, not necessarily in that order: (Note: family members were not allowed to guess the picture names.)

1 = Mrs. Jim = Feet E

2 = Terry = Feet D

3 = Anthony = Feet C

4 = Megan = Feet B

5 = James = Feet A

6 = Tim = Feet F

7 = Susie = Feet G


P.S. This little quiz was done at the request of daughter, Susie. Isn't she clever, I wish she would have continued her blogging. She is good! And a good writer!

Who is this man? (Quiz)

We have a winner, Felisol! Congratulations!

Hint: No one I found in Colorado. He was found by the cops in NYC, last name Morse. A long time ago.

What Felisol said:

"Dear Mr. Jim,
Yeah, found the Octoberbug with picture and all.
A NOTED FIREBUG CAUGHT; DAVID J. MORSE FINALLY AR- RESTED IN THIS CITY. Last of a Little Gang That Defrauded Fire Insurance Companies -- Their Method Was to Start Millinery Shops or Dry Goods Stores in Western Cities, and Then Came the Fires -- Two Now in Prison and One Dead.

October 4, 1896, Wednesday" (New York Times [
link]--The PDF complete story link)

Ok guys, keep guessing, the game's over.

The following answers given so far, ARE WERE INCORRECT:

No it isn't Samuel Morse.

Yes, I know the Morse Code, I don't copy the faster speeds I used to, so go slow until I get up to your speed.

No, it isn't the 'seed guy.'

No, it isn't actor Herbert Morse.

No, it isn't Salmi Morse.

No, it isn't big crook K.W. Morse.

Yes, I will tell the answer later but keep guessing.

Sunday Bible verse

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 NIV

This is a key verse from the Romans Road. To see how it works, click here.
