Oh my goodness.............I got these old advertisements in an e-mail yesterday and couldn't believe how times have changed....
I had to pass them along.
First of all..... as part of our Pre-Marriage agreement it was determined that NEVER.... no not EVER would any gift given to this little bride be attached to a power cord of any kind.
Spa Getaways? Yes.
Power cords? Absolutely NOT!
Well, in truth when Mr. BC asks what I'd like I always say.... "there really isn't anything".... I'm really content with the things I have.... and I really don't want anything.
Although.......my daughter, grandson and I went out for the day yesterday... To several Goodwills and an antique mall.... (lunch and dinner too.... we were gone a LONG time)... and my daughter found several things I would love to have snatched from her cart. But I found some great things.... all in the laundry and soaking now... so I'll show them to you when they're all clean. :-) Oh how I LOVE thrifting.
As you can probably guess........ men must have been in charge of advertising agencies back in the day.
So, the pressure to be thin started way back when?
And, Mummy might be a bit too tipsy to actually care for baby?
Yeah, I'm thinking not!
This one really amazes me........can you even imagine? And, I actually remember this ad!
I hope this post gave you a little chuckle today too.....I'm so happy that times have changed.
Oh, and just to keep it real.......I have gotten several items with power cords.... a dremel, a chop saw and a skill saw. :-)
Have a great day!
