The Putz House of Bremen

I found this unusual "putz" house at a sale this past summer. I initially didn't pay too much attention to the scene on the front, but when I got it home and took a closer look, clearly something very peculiar was taking place.

Good Housekeeping, December 1975

Okay, I know I've been really slacking lately.  Will an old copy of Good Housekeeping appease you? No? Well, take it anyway. It's all you're getting. Along with the Sears Wish Book and the Swiss Colony catalog, the Christmas editions of my mom's magazines always heralded Christmas for me.

Sunday Funnies, November 27th, 1977

One of my earliest memories is being sprawled out on our kitchen floor on a Sunday morning reading "the funnies" while my mom cooked breakfast above me. This section from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on this date in 1977 features some familiar faces whose strips continue to today.

I've been a little lax in posting lately, so I thought I'd pull out all stops and offer this postcard of a stunt-boating clown named "Corky".

What was on TV November 1st through 7th, 1980

1980, like this year, was an election year.  My first thought looking at this cover was, "I didn't know Phil Donahue ran for president."  It's actually John Anderson, whom I've never heard of before.  He did win 6% of the popular vote in that election, but of course Ronald Reagan won with 50.7% of the vote carrying 44 states.  And no, this is not an invitation to get political (past or present) in the comments.

Halloween Post Mortem

Well, Halloween has passed us once again.  Given October is my most active month of blogging, I like to review how I faired in readership.

Overall, my monthly readership more than doubled with over 15,000 hits in October.
