LL said...

How many Americans still remember a can of beer that needed to be opened by a church key?

Scott Way said...

I remamber LL! Around here it was Black Label Beer. "Hey Mabel....Gimme Black Label!"

BTW Odie...With Truckee flooding all over NBC news, I am sure you can apply for federal subsidies now. Stay out of the way of the FEMA trucks and the black helicopters however...(: Jus kidding. Take care of you and yours.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, besides you and I remembering, I haven't a clue. Maybe there's two more.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scott, I'm two miles away and 200 feet above it. My biggest fear is NBC News.

Opus #6 said...

These are funny! I wonder where the Coca in Coca Cola came from....

Sandee said...

The storm was hyped up really well. I've seen worse without the news coverage. There will be some flooding in areas, but that's normal. So it wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

I remember those church keys. Of course I would.

Have a terrific day and week ahead. :)

LOVE THESE OLD ADS, REMINDS ME OF AMERICA'S BEST DAYS AND I SHOULD AD, MY BEST DAYS.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Opie, it sounds like you knew all the time.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, hyped up is right. It ended up snowing here and helped the water stay low in the river.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, my days too.

edutcher said...

Be honest, how many of us learned the basics of right and wrong from Roy, Gene, the masked man and his faithful Indian companion?


So the Motorola ad was right.

And I remember reading something from Mark Twain that the wetnurse for his kids drank and it did them a world of good.

So Blatz wasn't too far off.

As I say, the good old days really were.

Mr. AOW said...

I remember Blatz Beer! So-so stuff, but no doubt with benefits!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, sip it, eat it, and view it in the good old days.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Mr. It helped produce this red blooded American.

USA_Admiral said...

I need a time machine.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Admiral, I'll send one over.

cube said...

Ah, the good old days. I wasn't around for some of those products, but if a church key is a can opener, we have some of them around for when the power goes out. Hurricane preparedness and all that.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Cube, you're a young kid huh. Church key was a very common phrase not too long ago.

Velcro said...

I sure remember enjoying Blatz! And not via mommy either!

My ex-girlfriend enjoyed the last one until she got sand in her schlitz... [rimshot]

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Velcro, that can hurt.

Velcro said...

That's why it's called a hormone.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Velcro! You're in rare form.
