the lace curtains scene has got to be from his high school class play set.
Blazed here too! Unbelievable.
I love that fish, and the colors.
And we could all do it if we had little people. And those peeps are teeny tiny!
They said many times the artists use found objects, like a disgarded box of take out chicken for a setting.
I'll never in my life forget going to see "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" with some of my buddies at 1 o'clock on a Friday afternoon, playing hookie from work.
I was totally hooked. I laughed until my cheeks hurt, and tears were streaming down my eyes.
So when he did the series on Saturday mornings, I made it a point to watch it with the kids!
Michael when I took the test it said I was Walt.
The bench seat is about 18 X 6, and the legs aren't longer than a foot. I can't remember if he was 3 or 5 when she made it, but definitely for a little guy.
We had the cars for a few years, but they probably were disgarded.
Holy Cow! That is pretty close styling to the rusty old buckets Dad procured. And he's getting ready to yabba dabba doo! Nice!
Must be late 30's, early 40's styling. Almost like a Chrysler Airflow.
Now I'm curious.
Okay, it is an Airflow, a Chrysler Airflow Playboy Dumptruck, made around 1935. http://www.juvenileautomobiles.com/pedal_cars.htm
(far right column, 5th one down.) How cool.
Haha! I doubt Murray would call them "Sad Face," but that has become a popular colloquialism for them.
I think it looks more like an Olds!
Now you've made me remember about 1960, Dad said he knew someone that wanted to give us peddle cars. When he showed up with them, they were a fire engine and a car. Both had sat outside on a farm somewhere for years, and the paint was completely gone. I tried to hide my dissapointment when I discovered that the peddles didn't even work. That did not, however, disallow me from powering them Fred Flintstone style!
Thanks how great were those old toys?
I actually remember that tricycle, and the little stars on the back step bar. I wore it out, literally. And I remember watching an episode of "The Millionaire," and then running out to re-enact one of the chase scenes on that trike, which ended up in a crash, pain, crying, raspberries, and probably chocolate milk.
The hat and jumpsuit, however, escape memory. Right now I'm watching the red carpet for the sag awards on E, so if somebody were to ask me what I was wearing in this picture, I'd have to say "Buster Brown."
A VooDoo donut truck!
L.A. Times article on VooDoo Donuts 2/20/2011:
Joan-I thought I'd caught part of something once on this place but wasn't sure it was the same doughnut hole!
Lisa-somehow I knew you were in Oregon, maybe from that Mustang post back when, but wondered if you were familiar with it!
Mr. Wood-I can't believe you got through your trip to Britain without falling off the wagon for their splendiferous pastry. Okay just kidding, I have no idea what food is good over there. We should ask Shirley. Anyhoo, thanks for the compliment, it's great therapy to put together a story board from scratch in the 5 minutes between getting home and starting my routines there.
Yes that chandelier is a work of genius I think!
There are two VooDoo Doughnut stores in Portland.
Once I saw the VooDoo doll I knew it had to go back with me to the room. I honestly thought I'd eat it for breakfast, but overslept and had to race out in a hurry the next morning to work and had to leave it!
Wow what fun!
