The other day I spotted the most unusual (to say it kindly) Christmas tree ornament ever: a red Hover Vac!
Would you like to have it?

These are fun, and some would be considered so shocking nowadays...

Guess I'm older than dirt since I recognize all of those posters.... My Daddy smoked for 50 yrs.--but finally stopped. However, smoking had done its damage and he died of Emphysema in 1969... I never smoked, thank God.

Hugs,
Betsy

Do I remember? Oh, I remember it well! All of these! Every one! "Older than dirt!" Yup.



Paula Scott said...

Even though these existed and were considered the 'norm' it does seem rather shocking to have thought that cigarettes were good and that the best gift for a woman would be a vacuum cleaner (what a sucky gift!).

AND, what a convincing banner!!!!

Linda Reeder said...

Yes, I remember. Now it's amazing, and appalling!

Talk about signs of the times! I can't imagine getting that hyped up over a Hoover, though!

I love looking at old magazines and their ads.

I can just imagine Heather's response if she opened up a big box with a Hoover in it on Christmas. I'd have to come sleep on your couch for a while until things cooled down at home.

Sacre bleu, is that santa smoking!!! These are wonderful old classics Stlvia.

Those cigaretted ads are quite vile! The one with the baby especially so!
Times have sure changed, Sylvia!
PS: If I gave a vacuum cleaner as a gift to any of the women in my life I'd get clobbered with it! ;-)

These vintage smoking ads are precious, Sylvia! :-D

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
