Vintage book

The girls mentioned this book to me last night. Mom found it and gave it to them a while back. They think it is hilarious-I suppose they're right.

Mom had saved it from sometime in my early school years. It is mostly empty pages, but the front of the book contains a couple of gems I thought I'd share.

Note the vintage (probably 70's era) wallpaper cover.

This page is titled "Dick and Sally". I'm an original one, aren't I?

It reads as follows:

Dick said oh Sally How did you get on that swing you said you couldnot get on. Sally said I have grown one feet sicne I said that. The End.

My girls love this story, too. They find it particularly funny that my dog changes gender somewhere in the middle, without warning.

My Dog.

I put my dog in his pen. And suddenly when I got up from bed. He was gone. I looked and I looked. But nothing of a dog could be seen. So I put on my summer coat and hat. I started off to look for my lost dog.

I walked and walked and I walked. I found a path to follow so I started to follow it. I found that I was not following my dogs path so I had to follow it back to the house.

So I followed the path back to the house. I ate lunch and I found another path to follow. I followed it and I found that she was having baby's!

Apparently, that is the end of that tale but I seem to have run out of room to put "The End"-or I'm sure I would have. Back then, I think it was the only way I was really sure the story was over.

Thankfully, I'm a bit better at spelling and sentence structure now than I was then.

The End.
