"My baloney has a first name:
My baloney has a second name:
Oh I love to eat it every day
And if you ask me why I'll say:
'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way
Nobody who was around back in the day didn't see this commercial. This ran for several years. I had the above play fishing set he's holding, btw. It was quite common.

I was just thinking about this and thought I'd do an image search. I had it, and it was circa '75 / '76. As soon as I saw the above pic, I remembered the front of the box immediately. On a side-note, I never really used it much.. and why anyone would have any need for a glow in the dark pen escapes me..

In 1972, if you had a tan, you were "healthy". Some people really took their tanning seriously. I had no problem tanning without all of it. I easily got as dark as that model when I was a kid. I miss those careless summer days.

The next thing I remember, I am walking down a street
I'm feeling alright I'm with my boys and with my troops,
Down along the avenue some guys are shootin' pool
And I heard the sound of acapella groups,
Singin' late in the evening,
and all the girls out on the stoops.

You can say what you want about Barbra Streisand, but back in the day, she was an exquisitely beautiful woman. As far as I know, she's never had plastic surgery. Somebody once asked why she never went under the knife, and she replied "because I don't want to look like anybody else. I want to look like me". I really admire her for that, as well as anybody who loves themselves for the way they are. Nobody's perfect, we all have our flaws. Maybe someday the plastic surgery craze will pass, but I think it's sad when anyone can't accept themselves for who they are, and love themselves in spite of their imperfections. Everyone's beautiful in their own way.
