For unlimited time only, your local supermarket is giving away free cat beds -- exactly the same as what you see above -- with any purchase.

As you can see, Ivy Spivington is loving hers!!

the Tuesday Song of the Week

I keep thinking I posted this already, but my list (yep, I keep a list) doesn't show it.

So, enjoy some Yiddish swing.
'Abi Gezunt' - the Barry Sisters

latest ashtrays

Alas, I don't have all the latest ashtrays to show you, mainly because the photo I took of one just looks awful.  That one will appear here eventually.

But for now...

Camelback in the Poconos
Hit the slopes, then have a smoke. 

Eden Roc Hotel - Miami Beach, FL
 Whenever I think of retro Miami Beach, I think of that rich jerk Keenan Wynn played in A Hole in the Head.

Harbor Light Restaurant - San Pedro, CA
Still in business! 

The Hotel Times Square - New York, NY
The above is puzzling.  There's a 'Times Square Hotel' but I don't know if this is that or that is this.  Maybe you do. 

John G. Stumpf, Inc. Fuel Oil
 Wasn't it easier to remember phone numbers back in the day, when the first two numbers stood for a word?  The first two numbers of my current phone number (land line, thank you very much) used to stand for Mayfair.

Salvatore's Italian Restaurant
Dunno where this is from.  There's a bunch of Salvatore's Italian Whatsis on the 'net.

it's compact

A hand-painted vintage compact!
or maybe antique compact!!

Maaavelous condition for its age, and oozing with old-time appeal.  

Update June 29, 2015: the above has sold.  I'm sorry you missed out.
