More from that 1963 issue of This Week In The Land of the Smokies and The Southern Highlands; this time ads for Ogle’s Buffet Restaurant and Ogle’s Crafts Of The Smokies.
According to this vintage brochure for Meramec Caverns, the caverns had geological formations which would “give the greatest protection against atomic shock and radiation. A modern Noah’s Ark is anticipated.”
A vintage “how the Norwegians say it” hankie, presumably so you could politely pretend to sneeze while figuring out what to say — or what was being said to you — on your trip to Norway:
In case the images don’t make things clear (and they didn’t for this person of German descent), here’s a translation (courtesy of hubby, who is of Norwegian descent):
tusen takk = thank you
skål = cheers
pen pike = pretty girl
jeg elsker deg = I love you
værsågod = you’re welcome
god tur = nice trip
morn = ‘morning!
takk for maten = thank you for the meal
While discussing this vintage handkerchief, hubby noted the crosses on all the helmets…
“It’s so you can tell them from the Vikings,” I said.
“Norwegians were Vikings,” he replied.
Über fail for me.
