it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing

Standard

going through my mother’s papers – organizing, passing on, saving gems – i came across an old newspaper, circa 1962, and loved everything about this article:

  2. You know what I love about this article….that it actually made the paper! I love the fact that who’s going to who’s house was news! My uncle runs a small town newspaper and there is always a section called What’s Going on in the Community. Things that make the news are “Bertha Jones made banana bread yesterday or Lester Johnson thinks he might have sprained his wrist.” It always cracks me up! I’m happy that the wives are not becoming golf widows and will be standing in gallery formation!

  4. This was funny as all heck! I could not believe it got printed the way it was so filled with those innuendoes! (I just read the comment, including the words “double entendre” that is what I meant!) So interesting that you found it saved! Is anyone you are related to in that article? Just might have caught her funny bone, too! Thanks for sharing!

  5. There is nothing like a bit of Swinging as they say 😉 But seriously I rather like this snippet, a blast from the past as it were but with a naughty edge if one wishes to be wicked, not that I ever would be as I am far too innocent 🙂 lmao

    Have a wonderful Monday my friend…
