Mrs. LG dragged ole LG to another antique store this past weekend, although, truth be known, he's going more willingly these days due to the various treasures he's finding. LG stumbled upon another cache of old photos, so he made a few more purchases for the viewing pleasure of readers of The LG Report. You're welcome. Don't mention it.
But, before we get to some of those pictures, we have two quick orders of business.
FIRST, LG must report on another "I Love Lucy" moment with Mrs. LG this weekend. As some of you know, LG equates living with Mrs. LG, at times, to being married to Lucille Ball (or at least her character in the TV show.) It's all very enjoyable, of course. Please keep in mind, this is 100% true.
The Scene: Saturday night, in the car, pulling away from our friends' house, where we had just enjoyed a delicious meal and very fun evening with Kristy and Rich.
LG: Check to make sure you have your phone, you're always leaving it somewhere.
Mrs. LG: It's right here in my pocketbook, I have it, no need to worry. [10 second pause] Oh, wait, what's this, I have another iPhone too. How did I get two phones? I must've taken Rich's phone by accident. Yes, this is Rich's phone. I was looking at it after dinner. We have to go back.
[Note: LG is accustomed to having to return to places shortly after we've left]
When we got back, Rich was waiting in his garage for the safe return of his kidnapped iPhone (which, LG believes, was issued by his employer and, even if not, is certainly critical to Rich's work.)
Mrs. LG, in order to be a wise-ass (she comes by that on her own, don't look at LG...seriously), said to Rich "Can I just hold onto it for a few days, I'd like to try it out to see if I like this new 4S phone."
Rich, as you'd expect, was a incredulous and quickly explained that he needed the phone for work and couldn't loan it to Mrs. LG, even just for a few days.
SECOND, LG is not in the business of shilling (not for others that is; certainly he shills for himself and The LG Report), but he has a piece of information that he feels he must pass on.
LG's friend Deb left her high-powered job in the financial services field a few years ago to start a business selling "Victory Cakes." These are heavenly creations (the words "cakes," "muffins" and "cupcakes" don't do them justice) based on recipes created by Deb's great grandfather, a master baker who came to the United States from Northern Ireland long ago. Here's what one looks like close up:
Anyway, if you're interested, you can check them out for yourself on the MacDougall's Victory Cakes website by clicking HERE!
Deb wanted to extend a special offer to readers of The LG Report. Mention The LG Report and you'll get (LG is quoting Deb here so as to not screw it up): "...a free Dassie Traditional Mini MacDougall Victory Cake (Wilbur Chocolate and Butterscotch) with the order of a Petite MacDougall or 1/2 dozen Mini MacDougalls -- plus a free Irish Shamrock Holiday ornament!"
If you're looking for something unique and yummy this holiday season, you can't do better than Irish Victory Cakes.
THIRD, we're finally at the photo segment. We've done about three posts in a row with old photos and we still have enough for at least two more posts. Yes, we like to milk an idea for all it's worth. Here we go:
The caption for this photo practically wrote itself: "Oh my oh my, I do hope that one day, 70 years hence, my photo will be ridiculed on something called a 'blog' which can be read and enjoyed by people all over the world after Al Gore invents the internet. And I wonder if science will ever solve the mystery of how my hair became the darkest thing every photographed on Earth up to this point."
There you have it folks, another posting in the books. More old photos coming soon, stop back when you get a chance!
