Fun and Funny

It just so happens...I was looking at your Xmas card from 1959 and really took a closer look. Ha Ha Ha And what do I see, a surprise. Is that Wally center top? I can't believe I had missed that before. No stodgy protocol dressing for those folks!!

Sorry to let you know we had protocol you don't meet an Emperor in weekender's clothing.

Secondly that is not Wally in his maiden form bra, it is a banker from Indiana, Don Christie.

We had travel clothing, work clothing, and the proper dress clothing. We weren't traveling as hicks.

Thanks! When I saw it again and saw the girdle tabs for nylons and then looked more closely I was laughing out loud. I thought it was Wally so I am glad you straightened me out. Still though, that seems to be wild and crazy and many years the junior of Second City TV or SNL (Saturday Night Live.) I love the old pictures.

Steve Martin used the phrase "One Crazy Man" or something like that.
Don could rise to the zanies. When crossing the equator, he thought that doing in a Maiden Form Bra was the way to go. It was a by play on the Maiden Form ads appearing on TV in the 50's.

I do intend to stay off the forums, but it is necessary to correct history, as mentioned.

Here is a picture of Don, up close and personal.

Tradition is so important along with history.I am amazed at the stories of airstream camping before the gray and black water tanks.How members made a game of decorating their black and gray water holes made by a post hole digger.Life seemed more simpler back then.

Dale,

So that we keep the history accurate, it seems someone used "your" remark 24 years before you did.
