Time Out.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:51 pm

Do you feel that you could use a break from reading, hearing and watching the mortal combat that politics has become? I know I do.

I suggest that you block out some time and visit Shorpy. It is a collection of high-resolution vintage photographs.

Although many of the photos are well before my time, many are not, and those serve to remind me of a time when things were a whole lot simpler.

Good stuff there.


  1. Yeah, it’s a cool site. A friend emailed me the link the other day. I meant to go back and look at more than the first couple of pictures then got busy. Guess I’ll go look now. 🙂

  3. That is a very good site. I wish sometimes we could all back a few years and do it a little different the next go around, Cat

  4. The site is nice. Calming too, yet I still wanna body check and then do some butt-ending on the MSM and many Dems for their pitiful treatment of the Palin family.

  5. Been looking at and downloading pictures from that site for the last 6 months. Simply amazing! As a history AND photography buff, I find Shorpy right down my alley. The Kodachrome transparancies will blow you away!! Need my “Shorpy(and Parkwayreststop)fix” everyday! 😉

  7. What is this?? Vintage photos?? Our presidential candidate accepts the nomination, Barack is shitting bricks for the first time since before he surged ahead of Hillary, we have a hot librarian Tina Fey-lookalike running for GOP VP, and you’re sitting there reminiscing about the Pleistocene epoch?


    I need pithy commentary, dammit! Witty jabs at Biden’s combover. A conversation between Saracuda and an Alaskan salmon. But noooo, you need to look at pictures of soda fountains, barber poles, 50-year-old Chevy Impalas and Cape May in 1923. You’re lettin’ me down, Hairboy. I’m not happy.

  11. Yeah, I’ve been robbing that site for months. Great pics of guitar players and musicians in general if you plod through the archives. What a great time in our country’s history.

  13. I believe he was able to take that amount of money, because he changed his mind and decided not to accept matching funds.
