Kools for Kids


FOUND by Amber Dawn in North Carolina

A while back, I found a bunch of slide carousels. I don’t know who they belonged to originally, but some of the people appear in multiple slides, so that’s one clue. The dates are stamped on the slides and range from 1970 to 1979. Most are overseas vacation photos, but it’s the family photos which I like best.

This is one of the earlier slides, dated 1970. It was most likely taken during a small family get-together, maybe a birthday or special event. For the sake of the little boy, let’s hope it’s a special occasion! Dad (or whoever) is DEFINITELY holding a lit cigarette to the kid’s mouth. You may not be able to tell, but in the larger version there’s even a cherry (burning) on the end. Also present at the party were at least two other small children, a mom(?), a grandma(?), and at least two other men. And now you know just about as much as I do.

Let’s All Sing Like the Dirdies Sing


FOUND by Brian Giwojna in Decatur, Georgia

This was found inside a book in a book store. I don’t remember which book it was specifically, but it was a very old. This seems to be a menu someone who chose their meal from. It could be from a hospital maybe? The person, who I guess can go by the name of Chaunell, chose the cheddar cheese squares, buttered noodles, toast and pureed peaches. I like how they underlined milk and added in Sanka.
