Nice find! And take a gander at these pics linked from there:
Oxley's Vintage Photos
(click "see more" for the gallery)
That book looks like Xmas fodder for the hunter in the family

What qualifies as "casual clothing" has changed, for sure!

Default Checking in for a quick visit. ~♥~

Here is a pic of our regular visiting turkeys after their daily walk around our house just before our yard turned white.

There was a TV report today about the nuisance (among other things, they stand in the middle of the road blocking traffic from moving) caused by a growing flock of wild turkeys in the New York City Borough of Staten Island.

Thanks Reed,
Same to all the neighbors on the porch. Hope everyone is where they need to be. Nasty, nasty weather up here on the hi-line as it is in most of Montana.

Take time to look at these photos, they are great! I think my Teddy Roosevelt, birds on the belt, jaunty hat on the head one is my favorite!

Thanks for sharing these.

Coffee is tasting mighty good this morning. It's -21. I need to run out to the mine and get a load of coal but I don't think the ole Ford is going to like it. At least it's not a Chevy. An Old Chevy is like a wife. On a cold morning, you can't get them to turn over.

Hahaha... tho I think the ol' geezer detailed to load the coal will like it even less!

Sadly, I have to report my '63 Olds F-85 would start even at -45 without being plugged in (it didn't like it, and you had to baby it along til it warmed up -- hmm, kinda like a wife! but it would always do it -- okay, like a loose woman ) but the '78 Ford pickup glowers banefully at anything below freezing, and gets downright reluctant if it's below zero. It's never actually refused on me, but it sure thinks twice (maybe it has better sense than the Olds did?) I did give it the heaviest-duty cold-cranking battery I could make fit in the compartment, which I imagine helps.

Speaking of batteries... was at Costco the other night, finished shopping, came out and the truck's battery was dead as a rock. So I had to trot back inside and get a fresh one. (Well, the old one WAS over 9 years old.) At least I was where I needed to be to buy the durn thing... and the truck's record is intact: In 32.5 years, it has never once left me by the side of the road!! (And this is only its 3rd battery, or 4th if you count the one that got "donated" to "Midnight Auto Parts" about a month after I bought it. This is why I have a hardened chain and padlock on the hood.)

The truck is old enough that the battery shapes have changed... the old clamp doesn't work with modern types. So the battery is held down with two rubber bungees. Been that way for 10 years now so I guess it works.

Up here, CarQuest has an 1100 CCA battery that is real reasonable. It has top posts (I use) and side posts. Most importantly it fits in my holders. They run $69.99. There have been many cold mornings that I was glad I had them. My truck holds two. One battery won't turn my truck over on a 80 degree day.

Default Things you can get away with saying at Thanksgiving

1. Talk about a huge breast!

2. Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.

3. It's Cool Whip Time!

4. If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!

5. Whew, that's one terrific spread!

6. I'm in the mood for a little dark meat.

7. Are you ready for seconds yet?

8. It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?

9. Just wait your turn, you'll get some.

10. Don't play with your meat.

11. Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.

12. Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?

13. I didn't expect everyone to come at once!

14. You still have a little bit on your chin.

15. How long will it take after you stick it in?

16. You'll know it's ready when it pops up.

17. Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!

18. That's the biggest one I've ever seen!

19. How long do I beat it before it's ready?
