Today’s Monday Meal is brought to you by Howdy Doody. It’s Kellogg’s Marshmallow “Crispy Squares.” It’s so easy, even a puppet can make it!
Yes siree, Mom! Make some for the kids tonight! It’s so easy – once they taste ’em they’ll make ’em for themselves!
More likely they will whine until YOU make more!
Touch of Retro wishes you a happy 4th of July!

I simply love this clip of Judy Garland singing “Get Happy” from the musical, Summer Stock.
Gale Storm, one of television’s early stars, died last Saturday at the age of 87. After appearing in many B-movie roles, she rose to stardom in 1952 with the hit series, My Little Margie (1952-1955). During her second hit TV show, The Gale Storm Show (1955-1960), she had three hit records, “I Hear You Knocking,” “Teenage Prayer” and “Dark Moon.”
Below is a clip of her singing “Dark Moon” from her television show, The Gale Storm Show-Oh Susanna!
