This treasure was spotted while my mom and I were travelling through Friesland, Holland’s northern province. The language spoken there is totally different than Dutch.

I love the toaster in the upper left. This fresco is truly a work of art created by the original artist, and time.

This ad is quite possibly pre-World War II. – Fading Ad Campaign

  1. Hi Frank, Isn’t it great Obama won? Funny how the McCain people can’t say enough bad things about Palin now. Have you ever been to the Las Vegas Neon Boneyard? I was there last month and it’s spectacular. There’s an entry about it on my blog if you care to check it out. Cheers! Gunnar
