The Tuesday Song of the Way

I was gonna do the Frankie Laine version of this song, until I heard it.  Too fraught.

So I found this other version by Dean Martin.  Dino didn't know fraught from a cord'a wood, as my hubbage would say.

vroom vroom

Any day now, you're going to begin shopping for Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus gifts.

In my experience, and in the experience of other women, men are kinda difficult to shop for.

However, what almost all guys love is cars.

And, oh boy, do we have automotive-ally related merchandise!!!


As you all probably know by now, the watermarks are only here
to protect YOU from flying monkeys.  There are no watermarks on 
on the actual items.


1960s Pontiac Bonneville
 in jigsaw puzzle form.  We have it in oodles of other forms as well.
===========================================================================

1930s luxury car - the 1934 Auburn on a necktie
========================================================================

I find this to be super-attractive: the 1939 Lincoln on a throw pillow
 =======================================================================

1941 Plymouth on a throw blanket
 SuhWEET, no?

1951 Frazer automobiles on a t-shirt.

The Tuesday Song of the Week

I'm all kinds of surprised that it's taken me this long to post this as a Tuesday Song of the Week, since it's one of my favorite songs:

'Peg' - Steely Dan

me me me

I spend my blogging time showing you all kinds of awesome must-have must-haves.

But of all the images on the must-have must-haves, my favorite is...


This one, shown here on a jigsaw puzzle

and on a tote bag

and on a clock

I am not a circus fan.  Went to the circus twice as a kid, and found it to be sad and kinda sleazy both times.

Nor am I a fan of clowns.

But what could be cuter than a clown taking his bow along with his dressed animal associates?

Not hardly anything.

For a limited time only

Did you know I have an eBay store?

Well, I do.

UPDATE October 15, 2018.  What's below has all sold.  But I figured you'd still like to look.  

We got...


a whole bunch of antique cigar bands, in seventeen different cigar brands.
With the multiples of some of the brands, you'd be getting over 60 (or, if you prefer, over sixty) neato cigar bands for your collection, or for crafting.  

a BEAUTIFUL pair of Ferragamo loafers, size 8 B

Lucy: The Bittersweet Life of Lucille Ball
This is a rare, hard-to-find bio, and a great addition to your Lucy collection.
