Looey and Hans Get a Spanking: Stereoviews A-Z

No 'time-out' for kids in 
those days!! 

What else can I say?
"Hans, we will put powder in Fader's pipe. Yes? No?"

"Ach, Looey, you haf such a head for smartness. Vat?"

"Oh, such an explosionness. Dis is better 
as der 4th of Chuly."

"Help--Murder--Fire! I am gone dead alretty yet!"

 "I gif you fireworks, vat? You vill half fun mit me, yea?"

    1. Hey, hi Paula. Reading some of my old A-Z. Pretty cool :)


"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
