You know, my mom, she liked her wine. She liked to smoke in bed. Virginia Slims. I was playin’ out with the kids in the neighborhood. I could do that with Merle gone. They had bikes, I didn’t. We heard sirens gettin’ louder. They jumped on their bikes, ran after it, you know, hopin’ to see somethin’ worth seein’. I ran after them, but I couldn’t keep up. I ran around a corner and saw my friends lookin’ at me. Hell, I saw everybody lookin’ at me. Fire trucks everywhere. People from the neighborhood. It was my house they were there for. That was my mom in bed burnt down to nothin’. That was the hard part. You know, she was just gone. Erased. Nothin’ left of her. People said it was better that way. I dunno. Just made it seem like it wasn’t real, you know?

Vintage Cigarette Ads. I quite enjoy looking at them, and at how much times have changed. Especially the doctor/dentist ones and Santa Claus haha, but that Ronald Regan one just cracks me right up. Seems like such a nice guy for doing that lmfao. I might do photo set of these once a week. And now, to end with a quote that goes along perfectly with these pictures.
“Our ill fated love affair with the cigarette, is a relationship in which we were sweet talked into, fell deeply in love with, then told to stomp out. Incredibly quickly, smoking went from being universally accepted, to internationally condemned. We glorified the cigarette, and then declared war on it”.
