Retro Wednesday.....



Hi everybody...
Remember 2 posts ago I showed you the pic of Tom Dewey?
I said that his Ma was my Den Mother....?
Well this Cub Scout cup is from about 1958 or 59.
It folds down to about the size of a hockey cup for easy packing.
But extends into a very formidable cup..To This Day!!!
Hahahahaha...I amaze myself sometimes..Hahahaha
.
Peace...!!!

You still have your CUB SCOUT cup?! Good Lord, man, you're going to need a bigger house if you ever unload all your stash boxes.:-)

I though I was going to see some pictures of coke straws & old empty popcorn tubs with unpopped popcorn in them...

& I would have asked you to collect all that unpopped popcorn and repop it for me to eat..

Galen! I'm hungry...

My Grams always carried a cup in her purse just like that (only pink) in case she was without a way to get a drink. I had more fun with that cup.

I don't have any 50's collapsible cups, but we used them all the time. I think there still around. I need to try to find some as there a good thing to have in a pinch.



I wonder what you have in your attic or in the rafters. A wonderland for the collecting enthusiast.

Ha!

Did you ever make an origami paper cup? We used to make 'em in study hall . . . for those trips to the water fountain in the hallway.

Really, it was just an excuse for hanging out in the corridors.

Thanks for stopping by at THE MANE POINT.

Blessings,
Linda
