Ahhhh, the 60's!
Us kids had a pretty sweet deal for a while.
Absolutely ANYTHING was available from the back
pages of your Superman or Batman comic book.
The year was 1964!
Because of that asshole Lee Harvey Oswald ordering
a $17.00 assassination rifle from Italy, we knew that the
supply of neat shit that you could order was about to dry up!
We had to act fast!
The "Foreign" couple that lived next door was always jibbering
in some strange language.
In their backyard garden, they only grew potatos and cabbage.
They had thick moustaches (even the 'wife')!!!
Their curtains were ALWAYS closed.
They had a pet Goat named Putana!!!
They never did laundry!
The Cold War made everyone suspicious of one another, and I was
no different. There was MUCH excitement when my "Man From
Uncle" spy pen arrived, I was going to learn more about this
sinister couple!! After gathering enough incriminating data to
hang Mr. and Mrs. Pinkoscovich, I decided to take matters into my own hands!
Even though I didn't live on any body of water, and the torpedos
would be useless, I knew that I could lob a couple of missles next door
and take care of my 'Vermin' problem!
Can I say something here? NEVER lob a Polaris Missle at a house
within 10 miles of yours...To this day I glow in the dark!!!
Shortly after this "incident", the Postal Service banned the shipment
of ALL Nuclear Subs. But let me tell you, they were Kick Ass!!!
Did any of you ever own any of these Mail-Order treasures?
Next Week...Sea Monkey's out of control!!!
Is it Wednesday?
Have any Art, Prose, or Poetry laying around? In ANY format?
Post it on your blog, then go visit .......HERE!!
