Dating Tips (1938)

Thursday, April 24, 2014

I found this on the internet at sadanduseless.com . Of course, I had to add the extra pictures!


Do your dressing in your boudoir to keep your allure. Be ready to go when date arrives; don't keep him waiting. Greet him with a smile!


.........................


Men don't like girls that borrow their handkerchief and smudge them with lipstick. Makeup in privacy, not where he sees you.


...........................


Don't sit in awkard positions - and never look bored, even if you are. Be alert, and if you must chew gum (not advised), do it silently, mouth closed.

....................


Careless women never appeal to gentlemen. Don't talk while dancing, for when a man dances, he wants to dance.


........................


If you need a brassiere, wear one. Don't tug at your girdle, and be careful your stockings are not wrinkled.


...................


Don't use the car mirror to fix your make-up. Man needs it in driving, and it annoys him very much to have to turn around to see what's behind him.


....................


Don't be familiar with with your escort by carressing him in public. Any open show of affection is in bad taste, usually embarrasses or humiliates him.


............................


Don't be sentimental or try to get him to say something he doesn't want to by working on his emotions. Men don't like tears, especially in public places.


.......................


Don't be familiar with the head waiter talking about the fun you had with someone else another time. Men deserve, desire your full attention.


....................


Don't talk about clothes or try to describe your new gown to a man. Please and flatter your date by talking about things he wants to talk about.


...........................


Don't drink too much, as a man expects you to keep your dignity all evening. Drinking may make some girls seem clever, but most get silly.


.....................


Don't be conspicuous talking to other men.


......................


The last straw is to pass out from too much liquor. Chances are your date will never call you again!

Zorro

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Zorro ran from 1957-59. Walt Disney Productions made the show, set in the 1820's of early California. The Spanish period of California ended in 1821, beginning the Mexican period from 1821-48, and eventual statehood. In the show, Don Diego de la Vega, only son of Don Alejandro, returns to California from the University in Spain to fight the corrupt military. He pretends to be a foppish dandy by day, and becomes the masked swordsman, Zorro (fox) at night. He left his trademark Z carved into signs, trees, and occasionally, the bellies of the bad guys. Zorro was much like the Scarlet Pimpernel or Robin Hood.

Guy Williams, who was actually Hispanic, played Zorro. Gene Sheldon played his mute servant, Bernardo,who pretended to be also deaf. He was able to spy on Zorro/Diego's enemies.

Out of the night,
When the full moon is bright,
Comes the horseman known as Zorro.
This bold renegade
Carves a "Z" with his blade,
A "Z" that stands for Zorro.



Zorro, Zorro, the fox so cunning and free,
Zorro, Zorro, who makes the sign of the Z.


He is polite,
But the wicked take flight
When they catch the sight of Zorro.
Hes friend of the weak,
And the poor and the meek,
This very unique senor Zorro.


Zorro, Zorro, the fox so cunning and free,
Zorro, Zorro, who makes the sign of the Z.


Zorro, Zorro, Zorro, Zorro, Zorro.

    I was born it 55 and can't remember if I watched a few of the shows a few years later or it I saw reruns after it was not making new shows, but I do vaguely remember it from somewhere.

I don't really watch Monk and can't really stand him but have heard his theme song so many times and now have "It's a jungle out there" running through my head!

Road Runner and Coyote

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Back to cartoons! Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies developed the coyote forever chasing the Greater Road runner through the American Southwest desert. From 1949, Wile E. Coyote chased and tried to trap the road runner, using incredibly complex Rube Goldberg type machines and plans. He obtained most of his contraptions from a mail order supplier, Acme Corporation. Jet powered rollerskates, rocketsleds, earthquake pills ... none worked, but he persisted. He usually ended up burnt up, crumpled, or squashed, as the road runner "meep-meeped" and ran off. One source claims the E. stands for Ethelbert.


Here in New Mexico, we have a commuter rail system connecting the Albuquerque area with Santa Fe, called the railrunner. When the doors close, they make a " meep-meep" sound.



If you're on the highway and Road Runner goes beep beep.
Just step aside or might end up in a heap.
Road Runner, Road Runner runs on the road all day.
Even the coyote can't make him change his ways.



Road Runner, the coyote's after you.
Road Runner, if he catches you you're through.
Road Runner, the coyote's after you.
Road Runner, if he catches you you're through.



That coyote is really a crazy clown,
When will he learn he can never mow him down?
Poor little Road Runner never bothers anyone,
Just runnin' down the road's his idea of having fun.

    What a marvelous description of the cartoon. Loved the pictures - my childhood was a lie!! And that your Rail Runner makes the "meep meep" noise is a scream! My DH and I were driving thru the desert many years ago and almost wrecked when we spotted our very first real life roadrunner going across the terrain! Wile E. Coyote was his second fave next to Bugs! I always wanted an Acme catalog!

Bat Masterson

Monday, April 21, 2014

William Barclay "Bat" Masterson was a real person (1853-1921). A gambler, a rambler, and a sweet-talking ladies man, he was also a buffalo hunter, army scout, U.S. Marshall, and lawman for several Western cities. He worked with Wyatt Earp in Tombstone, AZ, as a faro dealer in the early '80's.

Bat and Wyatt in Dodge City, 1876.

Gene Barry played a fictionalized version of Masterson from 1958-61. The half hour black and white show had more than 100 episodes.



Words and music by Bart Corwin & Havens Wray; Mike Stewart sang it.

Back when the West was very young
There lived a man named Masterson
He wore a cane and derby hat
They called him Bat, Bat Masterson.


A man of steel the stories say
But women's eyes all glanced his way
A gambler's game he always won
They called him Bat, Bat Masterson.


The trail that he blazed is still there
No one has come since to replace his name
And those with too ready a trigger forgot to figger
On his fighting cane.


So in the legends of the West
One name stands out from all the rest
The man who had the fastest gun
They called him Bat, Bat Masterson.

    Wyatt Earp (with Kevin Costner) had some points right and glossed over others. I believe they explained that Bat was short for Bartholomew in the film.
