Oldies But Goodies

Sometimes I'll find great pictures and create news stories around them. These were all senior citizens with lots of chutzpah (Keli ... that's a lot of NERVE). Who knows .... might be true???



HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHIRLEY SPIVAK

When Shirley Spivak was just three years old she told her mother that she wanted to join the circus. Shirley's mother naturally wanted to know where she got such an interesting idea. No one in the family had ever been in that business.

"I want to make people happy," said Shirley
"Very admirable," answered Mrs. Spivak, "now would you pass me one of your cigarettes?"
"Certainly, mom."

Shirley celebrated 100 years as Barnum and Bailey's oldest living belly dancer.



TWO STRIKERS ARE FOUND HUNDREDS OF MILES FROM THEIR FELLOW PROTESTERS

Blanche and Harold Outatouch were found Saturday morning wandering the pier in Santa Monica after being reported missing by their children, Betsy and Harold, Jr. Blanche and Harold were members of the Yuma, Arizona Dirty Dozen (a small but powerful button making union ... in the throes of  a fierce management struggle to create a new button mandate schedule for the workers.)

Somehow the Outatouch couple wandered into the desert and walked for days until they happened upon a tour bus of tourists willing to feed them.
