As a matter of fact, I got a small box in the mail today, and the return address was R.W. Moses in Sun City, AZ- a major planned retirement community.

Creepy!

I figured surely I'd run afoul of "The Commissioner" somehow, and he'd faked his passing and was living secretly in Sun City, and now he was gonna send his minions after me.... biggrin.gif

Actually just happens to be the name of an eBay seller who goes by "Chip", and he was mailing me one of those Dow Chemical World's Fair cigarette lighters with the Hydrofoil etched into the stainless steel.

I also got a mint condition original dealer promo Chrysler turbine car model in the mail today- something I've been after for quite a while- so I can honestly say that this year Christmas has been velly velly goot to me!

I'm using my new Christmas toy- a digital film scanner- to try to save & restore decades-old family slides, and I came across this one:

Christmas 1964 at Grandma's house

left to right:

Isn't it amazing how our parents always had us dress up in our little suits and ties, with hair neatly combed and Vitalisized, even just to go to grandma's house for Christmas?

Get a load of my 'with it' plaid jacket! biggrin.gif

And who could argue with grandma's choice of a best-of-the-early-60's orange sectional sofa, and I-don't-know-what-you-call-em-but-they-sure-look-60s curtains.

At this point the World's Fair was still eight or nine months in the future for me...

My grandparents moved into this house in 1962. From the outside it looked like a typical spraycreted concrete block two-bedroom house, but the inside kind of reminds me of the Formica House at the World's Fair!

All the appliances in the kitchen including the stove and refrigerator were colored aqua, and there was formica everywhere.

When I first visited them in this house in December '63, I remember thinking I'd never seen a house like that- it looked so 'modern'!

Also reminds me a bit of the decor in the final scene in the Progressland show.
