I knew the comic books would be a hit. The 10-cent books were actually from the fifties, which meant their ads were goofy and fun! If only we could still buy 204 Revolutionary War Toy Soldiers for $1.98! Or a Daisy Model 26 BB gun for $17.98!
I thought adding some real bubble gum to the experience would make it all complete. But I had forgotten what real SUGAR bubble gum is like. It took forever to soften the gritty stuff enough for bubbles. Then we tried to coordinate so that we all had a bubble at the same time and that just caused a lot of laughing. It was a lot of work and I must say, it took away from the enjoyment of the literature!
A Good Combination
Once again I dragged my daughter into a little silly celebrating. Even Jamie, Heidi's beau, (Is that fifties talk?) got in on the fun.
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
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!
