In the song, the "Good Ship Lollipop" travels to a candy land.
I ran across this charming film of the "The Little Engine that Could" from 1963. Maybe it's so charming to me because I have a foggy memory of watching this when I was about 5 or 6 (on TV? in kindergarten class?).
It seems like the perfect inspiration for this coming week. Wanna watch it with me?
(The first little bit of the film is a little shaky, but it's fine after that.)

Oh my, and now it's 6:20. I'd better get moving! I'm excited to share with my colleagues some of the fun old things that I'm bringing to our campus antiques show.
I would share them with you too, but I haven't taken any pictures of them...yet. But I do have lots of other vintage things that I've collected and photographed over the years that I can show you. Here are just a few.
Because time is running short (!) this will be a purely visual and very random display. Hope you enjoy...
Okay, enough of this nonsense...I had better get to work!!
Have a wonderful day!
