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.
