Today would have been Gail Davis' eighty seventh birthday.
Looking back through videos, I found this wild commercial for Friskies dog food from that same era. I love the little dogs and honestly, I can't get over how they brag about horse meat being the ingredient. I mean, of course I know that horse meat was used in pet food and unfortunately, still is today but it's interesting to me that Gail was on all of those Westerns with horses - and you know that cowgirls and cowboys love their horses. Eh, I don't know... I guess they were different times and quite honestly, it would probably be a lot better world if manufacturers were that upfront about what's in their products these days. Oh, I ramble. On to the video!
Also interesting: Using the phrase "table quality" about dog food. I think that I might start rating the dishes that I make as "table quality" or "eating over the sink with much regret quality".
Shoot! ( Pow! Pow!) Where was I? Okay, so Happy Birthday to the lovely Gail Davis. She was a real force to be reckoned with and her role as Annie seriously gave young girls back in the day someone strong and admirable to look up to. And tell me that they didn't need that in the 1950's! We're all about that one!
And now on to a little Annie Oakley. Look at this cool old film of Annie from 1894.
She would have been thirty four years old there. At the end, she is shooting glass balls. Reportedly, on a single day
This one is real cute. Heck, I'd wear that every day!
Its from Target.
Well, I also found this:
Okay, I've rambled on enough. Sometimes I go completely down the rabbit hole and into other rooms that take me to entirely other rabbit holes, don't I?
I hope that y'all have a great weekend!
Until next time,
x's and o's,
p.s. Okay, I can't resist. Betty Hutton as Annie Oakley!
