  1. oscar and macintosh's mom says:

    i too enjoyed summers on cape cod until i was about 10…then the family headed west…which is where i met the man who would become macintosh and oscar’s father. the wax lips…hadn’t thought about them in years! didn’t they have some kind of cool aide or something inside? remember pixie stixs? and cracker jacks. the good ole days.

    Olbermann wanted more money, and he had called his attorneys over the year to see about exiting his contract earlier in the year… He was the main money train for MSNBC. You see this once and a while in TV when someone thinks the grass is greener on the other networks…

    I had a little store as a kid, we road our Schwinn stingrays down to it to get our penny candy and pop… Cool place, old water chiller chest to keep the drinks cool, and the bottle opener was on the side… They had kites and rubber band planes, and the odd and end little toys.. Bazooka gum, fire balls, mint julips (favorite), mary janes, etc…
    Around the fall they had wax lips. They had a ice cream chest… Aaaaaaah summers on Cape Cod…
