Flashback Friday: My, What A Big Lens U Have!

Quoting About.com: “An Korean puppy holds his ground in an “eye to eye” encounter with a huge Fifth Air Force aerial camera, one of the “Eyes of the Far East Air Forces.” The camera is an Air Force K-19B used by night-flying RB-26 aircraft of the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing to photograph enemy airfields, railroad marshalling yards, bridges, supply dumps and troop movements. (Circa June 1951.)

Let’s do the Time Warp again! We’ve got a beehive hairdo, kitch, schmaltz, cheesy xylophone, AND an old-timey newsreel narrator! But wait, there’s also cats so that makes it all better.

How to Attract Kittens

Who doesn’t love a visit from one of our favorites, the Kitten! These little cuties are easy to attract and fun to watch!


Start by getting a cow from your local farmer or garden shop, then fill it with milk. Let the milk warm up while you sit on your favorite block of wood.
