With Summer upon us (at least in the Northern hemisphere. Do they still call it summer in the Southern hemisphere? I'm too lazy to Google it) I thought you might enjoy this August 1959 issue of Sunset, the Magazine of Western Living. It's the special "Art of Camp Cookery" issue plus plenty of vintage ads. Bon Appetit!

Despite being an American author, Verne Chute doesn't rank an English Wikipedia entry, but scores with the French. From the translated French wiki page (which translates his last name to "Fall"):
"He tries to seduce the strengths of the mystery while cleverly playing with the tricks of the thriller."

After a long absence, TV Guide returns. Literally. This is a reblog. But, there are new scans and content, so enjoy.
We return to television past once again. This time it's a trip back to 1980. Humorous assists from friend John once again.

After a long dry spell, I return today with some postcards I bought at the estate sale of Jesse Megehee Jr. a few weeks ago. These postcards were sent to his father Jesse Sr. around the turn of the century. Jesse Sr. resided in Picayune, Mississipi, just north of the Mississipi River Delta and was born in 1892. Some of the writing is difficult to read, so I've transcribed below each card.
A Glad Thanksgiving
