This will pick up any low spirits!

But is it subject to the wartime 10% tax?

Be interesting to see what the Ringelmann number of those sugar-alcohol-laden smoke rings is, and what the consequences of that kind of firing will be in discipline for the (clearly underage to work!) crew.   Will we need a Pantone-color equivalent of the chart for accuracy?

I've got to ask,

Are the employees on that railroad members of the lollipop guild?

Mets are hot, won 14 of last 15.
 
Bring back Clove and Licorice Life Savers!
 
Friends of the family always gave me a Life Saver 'Book' for Christmas. When you opened the book there were two rows of 6 types of LifeSavers, twelve in total. That gift went on for years and years and then I wrecked it by growing up. 
 
Our trading post brought in these 'books' this Christmas but there were 2 rows of 4. Maybe they don't make 12 types any longer.

BTW, Vernon Dahlhart was an interesting guy - a Texas cowboy who became a classically trained opera singer who became one of the first Country ("Hillbilly" back then) recording artists.

Interestingly enough, in the 1920s "Hillbilly" records were listed in some record label's catalogues under 'foreign language recordings'.
