Ya know, another Gene Autry sidekick was country singer Johnnie Bond.

Holy cow! Redrose Tea and boid pics! Me too. Now Peter, do you remember the offer for (cheap) binoculars?

I just had a sobering thought my friends.(sorry) We were all BLOODY LUCKY!

Another (less sobering) thought. Man, all these little doo-hickeys would be worth a ton of money these days (even unopened boxes of "Maypo"). Ah, well. My mother threw out my HUGE collection of comics (including almost a complete set of Classics Illustrated) when I moved out to be a hippie in Yorkville. Silly thing to do.

I mentioned to Peter once that it was rather disconcerting to me that when I recalled most of the "serious" books I'd read, I seemed to visualize the characters as being two dimensional, badly drawn, and in primary colours!
