SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Inn of Tomorrow

How much are we all loving those astro piñatas orbiting alongside that inner galactic galaxy of hanging lamps? They mix and mingle so well with that big blue futuristic video game, early automotive kit craft wall art and pea green armadillo sniffing the beautiful blue green shag carpet. Those blue and green hoops and bubbles glued on the bannister and front desk don't disappoint either...

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Uncle Watermelon

Patriots partying in polyester pose with the best Fourth of July centerpiece ever! Whoever dreamed up this bicentennial-born vegetable faced fruit head deserves an award and a big box of fireworks.  He’s like Mr. Potato Head but bigger, sweeter and more patriotic.

OK, let’s admit it. Everyone loves it when a big delicious watermelon has red pepper lips, green pepper eyebrows, carrot and olive eyeballs, and dill pickle nose and ears. The defining touch and perfect topper, is a snappy Uncle Sam top hat fresh from the party store.

At last! Uncle Watermelon is just the tabletop mascot for Fourth of July. What Frosty the Snowman is to Christmas, Uncle Watermelon is to July Fourth.

When the party is almost over and the last fireworks are being lit, ask yourself an important question: do we slice and serve him or blow him up?

Let the Uncle Watermelon crafting begin!

Here’s to your Uncle Watermelon centerpiece, polyester patriots, this great country’s 235th B-day and YOU!

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Comton Drive-In, Compton, CA, 1979

About ten or eleven years ago curiosity got the best of me and I decided that I just had to see the house that my mother grew up in in Compton. My grandparents moved out of it when I was five and I hadn't seen it since. So I looked up the address in the Thomas Guide and headed over there.

I’m breaking my own rule this week. This is not a slide, it’s a snapshot. But it’s the only picture I have of my family at Christmas.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Rogue River Oregon 1970

Fish are the most photographed creature in the animal kingdom. Dogs come in second, then cats, birds and bears round out the top five. But unlike the other animals the fish are always dead. And of course, just like in this slide, someone is holding them up grinning from ear to ear.
