You Don't See That Anymore - Part 3

Ok, we're back from our commercial break and have one final grand finale of old photos that fit the theme "you don't see that anymore"...

We don't box our pets anymore.  Now we just walk them on a leash and pick up their poop...

It's long been forgotton that fishing poles had another practical use...

Remember when oversized costumed people had to fill in for the organ grinder monkey shortage?

Flower hats were so seasonal and definitely had bee issues to be concerned about...

School PE instructors have it easy now.  They don't have to dispense cigarettes and light them anymore...

These days, keeping your dead spouse in the house indefinitely is not permissible in at least 48 states...

What happened to the romance of a cigarette holder for two?

The penguin paparazzi seems to have disappeared to Hollywood to make movies...

And here you thought our generation was lazy for putting their dog on a treadmill...

These portable baby cages could come in quite handy at picnics and visiting with friends...

Doesn't anyone sew on their bike anymore?

Eventually Pandas got muscled out of the photography business because they were just too soft and gentle...

With gas prices the way they are now, they should bring back shared scooter commuting...

I don't know...you just don't see the NASA baseball team much anymore.  PS - I don't EVEN want to know what that rip cord does that seems to be dangling between the pitcher's legs...

And there you have it.  I think the gnomes did an excellent job showcasing our fantastical nonsense from yester year.

Now how did you get a picture of my uncle? He has been sitting on that couch for so long that he has fused with it. And he carries on the best conversations when we talk to him, he seems to be lonely for some reason.

Love all the other pics too. Penguins are such cool dressers.

God bless.

I think we need to bring back cages. We can put them on wheels and roll the kiddos around. Oh wait. Someone invented strollers.


As for the bike, "Step away from the sewing machine, Mom!"

The flower hat? Oh my, my. My cat would destroy that in about three seconds. That would make me very happy!

I hope you gave those hard-working gnomes some good treats. They did a great job of making me laugh.:)

personally, i think a return to penguin paparazzi would be more interesting than the status quo

mrsupole - I must have gotten the picture from the census bureau. You know, the people that peek into your house when you're naked and keep a tally of whose there...

reforminggeek - I can tell you want that sewing machine bike...

sybil - Well...that's the most German Shepardy looking Kangaroo I've ever seen...

gab - I thought that's why they invented astronaut diaper technology...

serena - cocoa puffs...they like cocoa puffs

lime - They're much more formal too!
