In 1954 it was a very good year

And in honor of the year, a post (almost) entirely in black-and-white :

A 1954 commercial for Peter Pan [TM]











The new Corvette!









And Elvis makes his early commerical recordings for Sun Records.

"That's All Right"







Born in '54, and I turn 54 today.


So it's off to Charleston for a day of fun. Here's hoping it's an equally good day for all my readers!

Happy birthday, Ruth. I don't need Elvis, but did enjoy hearing Sterling Holloway and Dave Garroway - it's been a long time.

Happy birthday. Child.

I've got a similar birthday coming up. Capital-R Ronnie was always willing to buy me peanut butter, but never came through with the Corvette.

Maybe this year ...
