Vintage/Dapper for the day

1950’s old movie

Here you can enjoy some photos of people thinking it’s 1950 all over again, just like that old movie you saw last night and then had a dream that it was you in the movie.  How about dressing up just for fun?  Are people looking because they wish it was them dressed up or do they just think that you are out of place?      We look like a good egg. Don’t know that expression?  Then you need to spend some time watching Fred MacMurry in one of his classic movies. How about all the hats ladies had back in the day?  You can still find them, you know. Vintage stores are around and you can even shop with a new thing call the internet.  Not sure what an inter has to do with a net.  You don’t catch anything with it.  But you can look at your television and see stores right on it.  Then you can use a thing called a charge card.  Don’t know if it gives out a positive or negative charge.  Not sure how you pay with a check, but they say you can pay that way, too. Check out the movie stars of the golden years.  Beautiful dresses and hats. Lots of hats!  What did they pay back then? What do we pay now?  We have found hats about $15.00 on the average. If you have a great store you shop at let us know or share it on a thing called Facebook. Not a face or a book but that is what it’s called. We are always looking for a good event to attend. Please let us know if you find one. We like to look good and try to buy vintage clothing to look like we are from the 1950’s.  Wait just a doggone minute, we are from the 1950’s.  I was born in 1952. Wake up Ray, it’s not a dream from an old movie.   You did live back in the day. Wake up, Wake up.

Movie stars are everywhere

You don’t have to live in Hollywood anymore to see movie stars. They are all around us. An up and coming star that just got done filming right here in Florida.  She said she would love to sign autographs but her agent frowned on it. One movie star was recently seen in Washington, D.C.  USA in a 1920’s dress made by Madeleine Vionnet.

Malt shops and more.

Hello mom,

My friends and I went to the malt shop today. It’s so much fun visiting Wanda and aunt Alice. They have 3 television channels and uncle Joe said they are getting a color television. Mom put a bug into dad’s ear to get a new television. They even have one of the new car hops. The girls bring your food on a tray on roller skates. Mom. I would love to be a car hop in our town. I love to roller skate. It would be my first job. Think of the money I could make. And the boys I could meet. I could even save my money and get one of the new Edsels. The front of the car looks so boss. don’t you think? I am sure that you and dad could help me a little with the money right? Tonight we are going Ice skating. Can you believe it this town is so big they have a Ice skating rink. Wanda said there are always boys there. That’s OK right because aunt Alice with be with us. Got to go, mom. I have to get this letter out. Remember, bug dad about the color television and the car.                                      Love Joyce

Bob’s big boy

In California we would always go to Bob’s Big Boy. My brother drove off with the tray because the girl would not come and get it. So she saw him drive away and she got the license number of the car and called the police. Funny. If you don’t have a Bob’s or Bob’s Big Boy or Vip’s they had a lot of names but  the Big Boy was always out front. Best chili size ever made was at the Big Boy. Great malts, too.
My sister and her husband bought a Winchell’s donut shop in northern California. We lived in Glendale, CA. at the time and I went up to help them for the summer. I was about 13 or 14 and we made donuts starting about 12:30 at night. Then went boating, water skiing and fishing in the day. Get up and do it all over again. Remember the Dunkin Donuts commercial “time to make the donuts” ?  Michael Vale (June 28, 1922 – December 24, 2005)
Did you know that Joanie is from Montana? The license plate above is from her grandfathers car. We have a few plates from places we have been. Ray moved to Montana in 1978 with the Air Force and Ray and Joanie met at Central Assembly of God church. Joanie asked Ray if he could help her with some artwork for a quilt she was making for her dad’s retirement. They never dated, they were together with friends and working on the quilt. Then it just all came together and Ray said “you’re going to marry me, and Joanie said I know.” Read about the yellow roses story on our anniversary page.
