Bobby Darin's Dream 2
So for today:
1955 news and mag stand
Newspapers and magazines at one time were the best way to keep up with the news, especially in pictures. Life magazine was tops for many years. The pictures I remember most were of mountains, oceans and huge animals i.e. Elephants, Rhinos.
As a child (even later) I didn’t look at the details to judge the angles and details that make good photography. I just saw the picture. Looking back I am sure that the photographers Life used were some of the best.
Later in life TIME mag was known for good news (which I seldom read) but the cover picture seemed to be of worldwide interest, so I did look at the cover picture.
I do remember the Boy Scouts and Schools used magazine subscriptions as fund raisers. We receive only one magazine, and that is from the American Legion, and comes free with membership. I glance at it and throw the old copy away and put the new copy in the pocket behind the driver’s seat of the coach. There are about 2 articles in the 20-30 pages, and the remainder of pages are advertisements.
I smile to think of our church publications. We used to take pride in reporting EVERY church, its pastor, monthly tithe and attendance. Imma thinking the officials became ashamed of the number of SHRINKING churches. And that is not so much now.
OKAY our latest news. Remember a post of mine: “When I start thinking, then I start THINKING!”
Well my sweetheart has a sore throat and feels listless. With Johnny’s service coming up, and some family will be there; she doesn’t want to spread anything, cold, flu or the COVID. So today she went to be tested. Results in a couple days.
The dude doing the tests was good. Knew how to put Sherry at ease (she gets a little up tight). He walked out to the car with a note pad and asked how she wanted her hamburger. We all got a good laugh.
Asking questions checking blood pressure and temp he said she had no solid signs of COVID, they did a test for strep and it was negative. We do not expect she will be positive, but she will feel better.
Things are moving right along. Life itself is good.
