To paraphrase Mr. Bernstein: "A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1943, I was driving past a walk-up downtown, and there was a girl waiting out front to my left. She was wearing a wide-brimmed straw hat. A white dress she had on. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl."

Heh...part of me was wondering if R. Crumb ever saw this when he was a young'un.

In Santa Monica I bought about forty postcards like that. I've framed them. My social worker niece doesn't like the crime novel covers:

"Love Cheat"
("A novel packed with exotic thrills")

"The Old Battle Axe"
("She wasn't ready for death")

"Leg Artist"
"Love life of a model")

And so on, all with ladies showing off their assets of course. Well social work will have to face facts one day, meanwhile it continues astonished.
