To the 'Right' of Lenin












Yesterday I had one of the best days of the summer. Pop culturalists anywhere would have had a most stupendous time.

We went to a farm a-la old Americana and after learning how to 'milk a teet' (yes, I did that and I have the pictures to prove it!), and feed a calf, I had the opportunity to visit some really mind-boggling art pieces from the 50's and 60's. I have a huge interest in Americana art, hence this experience was a most incomparable gift.

I'm in the process of compiling a longer and more detailed post about this experience but, for starters, here's a picture of me, to the 'right' of Lenin, holding an authentic Life magazine with John Wayne on the cover. Ah, the text, the text!
It was truthfully an inspiring day.

What a great picture!
HA. To the right of Lenin.
This sounds like quite a place. I look forward to reading the more detailed report. I'm assuming it was out West?

I love this picture! Is this a new Americana exhibit? Where was this? I loved the caption....

Hmm:"To the winner of the socialistic competition"
What did you win?

I have milked a teet before as well. I was about 5 years old, and they were having a demonstration at a farm near the house I grew up in. I was the lucky volunteer for teet milkage.

Dude, this is too good. I look forward to the full report. I'm also deeply interested in Americana!
I liked the decor here.

I'm liking this pic a whole lot of ways.
I guess, John Wayne won, right?
