From Century Magazine, February 1917.

A hard game indeed.

I think I found my favorite piece of sheet music - from 1919. It has the added bonus of a typed note glued to the front.

Multi-Tasking Your 2015 Resolutions

It's that time again for New Year's resolutions.  Atop the list for most people are getting in shape, adding more eroticism to your life and spending more time with friends and family.

These illustrated exercises from Dell's 1000 Hints - Your Figure (1960) can help you achieve these resolutions all at once.

There is mother & daughter scissoring:

Pssst!....Satan attended our Congregational Meeting.

This letter to her pastor  (undelivered?) was found in a 1950s Bible.  From Coleman, Texas:

Funny Jews and Poor Haitians

I found this undated letter in an old shipbuilding book.  I don't know when it was written, but at the time the Jews on TV were funny and there were poor people in Haiti.

Follow-Up on Summer Reading

A couple summers ago I tried to catch up on some reading.  I'll confess - I didn't finish everything on that list. It took me another year or so to tackle Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management.  The book changed my life in a lot of ways - both good and bad.  I don't want to go into detail about the bad things, but suffice it to say, I had to contact my attorney, John B. Stanchfield, Esq., for help.

I've got a couple of friends that can help me with the wedding ceremony, but I don't have anywhere near $500 to my name for Mr. Stanchfield's services.  Can anyone help me figure out how to add a PayPal tip jar to this thing so I can raise some funds to get the brown matter arranged?  I figure I'm going to make a couple hundred or so on a litter of puppies arriving in a few weeks, so that only leaves me $300 to raise.

Last May I wrote a blog piece about Texas A&M University and the Kream & Kow Klub.  In the piece I mentioned that the 1926 edition of the school's yearbook pictured the Kream and Kow Klub in full sheets.   I was wrong about the dates, but not about the sheets.  Thanks to an anonymous contributor, here are scans of the 1906 yearbook cover and the KKKs at Texas A&M:

Somebody Really, Really Likes Chicken

Regular readers of the Regretsy website will be familiar with her meme, "Someone really likes."

I've discovered that the creators of Golden Apple's Chicken, Turkey and Fowl Cookbook really, really like chicken:
