#JusJoJan ~ 1/17/19 – Inch

Happy Thursday folks!!!  John @ The Sound of One Hand Typing prompted us with inch.  Thanks for the prompt and a BIG hello this morning.

John is the music man and collector of rad vintage commercials.  Check out a post of his here. Then peruse his site.  I guarantee you that you’ll learn something new and cool.

INCH – my first thought is give them and inch and they’ll take a mile.  Greedy buggers.  Not you who are reading this … nope.  If I gave you an inch, I am sure you’d say thanks.  Taking a mile is for schmucks.  < thought bubble…image of Steve Carell and Paul Rudd >.

Ugh!  Get out of my head.  This is not the film “Dinner for Schmucks” and/or #SoCS.

Up next, inch worm, inch worm give me a mile.  Doh!  That’s not right.

What was it?  Oh ya.  There was this toy you see.  That I had to have.  But never got.  Why? well because my parents realized it had no staying power.  You’re getting a bike they said.  And that bike was the best gift ever.

Can’t picture an inchworm?  Well in typical JH fashion, here is a vintage commercial.

    1. I may have been too old when I asked for an Inchworm which is why I got the bike. I do not remember watching Romper Room. I did watch Sesame Street and if memory serves Romper Room came on immediately after. Mom would say turn off the TV and go outside!!

  1. Interesting prompt. One could have a lot of good ups and downs with that one. Got me to thinking about the little marks on tape measures that few know what they are for and fewer use.
