Leftovers Day 21 -- Wallets over Mid-America

This wallet was somebody's souvenir from Six Flags Over Mid-America in Missouri.  It doesn't look like it got much use. The front features some of Six Flags' classic rides such as the Log Flume, the Moon Cars and the Mine Train.

Leftovers Day 20 -- Saludos Amigos!

Somebody chose to save this paper dinner place mat as a reminder of their stay at one of the Hacienda Motel or Hotels.  We'll never know which one.

Leftovers Day 19 -- Popcorn Party

I'm a lifelong popcorn addict.  Home-popped, carnival-sold, store-bought, fake-butter-drenched-movie-style, it doesn't matter. I also have a soft spot for popcorn makers.

Most people are familiar with the West Bend brand Stir Crazy popper.  A some point, some genius at the West Bend company realized you could increase your popcorn production by introducing a sleeve to raise the elevation of the domed lid resulting in a literal Popcorn Party.  To him I say, God bless you sir.  But clowns? Why did it have to be clowns?

Leftovers Day 18 -- South St. Louis County Yesterday & Today

Today's post is one of those that will be interesting to only a few. Hey, that is NOT every post!

Anyway, I found these aerial photos of south St. Louis County (my stomping grounds) from when Interstate 55 was being developed near Lindbergh Boulevard.  You can see South County Mall with the famous Famous & Barr dome to the right.  It's parking lot is still under development. You can also see how much of the land was still farm land and residential at that time.  Interstate 55, still in development, dead ends South of Lindbergh.

Leftovers Day 17 -- Hey Wilton!

Perhaps nothing is more inexplicable than the success of  the TV show "Alf" in the 1980's.  Well, maybe the fact Wilton made a cake pan out of him is.
