Hiatus Post No. 28 – Antiques

I am taking April off from Disperser Tracks, from reading blogs, from Facebook, from Twitter, and from the Internet in general. I plan to return (virtually) live on May 1st. 

Meanwhile, I scheduled a few posts (like this one) to go live during April . . . like a blog heartbeat of sorts.

I should mention, I am not monitoring comments. I will eventually read them in May, but if anyone has a question, the best bet is to send me an e-mail.

This next item was representative of what one might find on the beaches of Florida . . . 


. . . they are reminders of time past, like this ad:


I think those are very different from current beach attire.

Stuffed animals have a presence in antique stores, but this one caught my attention.


Other than the unrealistic nose, a pretty good cat representation. Or perhaps a small dog. Something furry, anyway.

This next store window made me wonder about their merchandise . . . alas, they were closed.

Most people these days frown on the use of ivory for stuff, but there was a time . . . 


These were a reminder of yet another difficult time . . . 


The titles almost had me buy some . . . but I resisted. 

Well, I need to wrap this up since I feel a bit like this guy:


Not sure what the original intent was, but I recognize the universal expression for “my knee hurts”.

Perhaps he should call for help . . .
