A new addition to my collection

Anyone who knows me knows that one of my biggest obsessions is old time radio – specifically, the show “Fibber McGee & Molly.”  (I mean, c’mon, they’re in my WordPress icon.  I LOVE Jim and Marian Jordan, aka Fibber and Molly.  They feel like family to me!) So I’m quite excited to be adding this Milton Bradley game from 1940 to my collection!

I’m alone on an island…

One more quick post that revolves around a single thought –  I’m alone on an island!  I’m a boat without oars!  I’m a cart with no wheels! I’m a phone with no receiver!  Why?  Because I have no one with which to talk about my crush on 1940s Don Ameche.  It started thanks to his appearances in Lux Radio Theater (he has an amazing voice) and now I’m just full-on crushing and no one understands, considering I’m a 33 year old woman, this is 2012, he’s been dead for years, and I’m attracted to the man he was when I was approximately -35 years old.  *sigh*  I’m going to go watch Heaven Can Wait from 1943 on Netflix and swoon all by my lonesome.
