#20 Root Beer and the Funnies
We don't get the newspaper anymore, so today I had to go buy the Sunday paper. It's been a long time since I read the funnies, so I had to make sure I gave it my all. I grabbed a Stewart's root beer (around since 1924) and a couple straws and headed for the hammock.
As I opened up the funny papers I started to wonder which of the featured comics were actually around in the '50's. I was relieved to find six! Blondie is the oldest, from 193o with Prince Valiant following in 1937. Beetle Bailey and Peanuts got on board in 1950 with Dennis the Menace and Hi and Lois following in '51 and '54!

57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
