"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

Old Commercials

Yesterday, I was over at Kitchen Retro checking out a vintage ad for the radio microphone from 1948. I wasn't alive back then but, it reminded me of Mr. Microphone from the 70's.

I had a Mr. Microphone. *snort* I thought I was really stylin' with my feathered hair, velour shirt, tight jeans, old school roller skates, and yelling out Dyn-O-Mite! on my Mr. Microphone. Whoot!


Raise your hand if you or your family ever owned one of these? *raises hand*

Okay, who had shag carpet like that? * raises hand again* Ours was green instead of brown though.


I miss Nancy Walker. I loved the snarky characters she portrayed like Mildred on McMillan and Wife. (For those that are interested, season one is available on DVD and if you have Netflix, you can watch it and the other seasons -some of the seasons are incomplete though- via their instant watch feature.)



*snort* I love the smell of advertising propaganda early in the morning. If you want a happy marriage you better get you some Bounty!

This poor woman should just pull an Elvis on the clothes and be done with it.




I still enjoy the music of the 70's.


This commercial obviously did its job as I am still using their tag line after all these years.



I remember how the "beef lady" became an instant sensation because of these commercials.

I really did toy with posting the "Fallen" one as I still randomly say that. LOL

I sheepishly admit to wanting the K-tel record.

Ooh, also, "That'sa some spicy meat-a-ball."
