I added a few new things to my wall this week. I enjoy looking at the old LIFE magazines I see at my local Bookmans. During the last visit I found Queen Elizabeth and immediately adopted her. Who better to tell me to stay calm than the Queen herself?
It was fun thumbing through the magazine. In this issue Elizabeth was just made Queen, a budding actress just started her new show ("I Love Lucy"), and the ads make me giggle. I may even frame an ad or two for fun.
Just today I randomly ran into a 1937 British newspaper announcing King George's coronation at the thrift store. I got it, of course. It's a big ragged but fun to look at. I think perchance I need to get an American flag hung on my walls to balance out the British monarchs. Go America!
