Flashback Friday

+ Audrey Hepburn & lpAt the beginning of the year, we featured Audrey Hepburn and her Prosh Friend Pippin. There is no known reason why we can’t bring that pair back again. Oh, and as a bonus, we’ve got AH and another little guy…she was quite the animuhl lover.

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.)

Flashback Friday

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.
It’s just a jump to the left:
