I am happy to share some more of the health and fitness pics I stumbled across in my web wanderings this past week. The ‘& …” in the header is for the animal ones. They have nothing to do with fitness, but they crack me up every time. Maybe it’s because I am a dog owner and have a sympathy with the animal brain. Anyway, I hope you like them as much as I do.
You guys (and gals) all know that I am an old man turning 78 in January. So, I have a dated perspective on some things. Regarding ink (tattoos for us old guys), I wanted one since I was nine years old, but never got it because of other people in my life. My father said no tattoos while I was living in his house. After I moved out and married, my first wife said pretty much the same thing.
Long story short, I didn’t get mine till LAST YEAR. I asked the artist while he was working on mine how old was the oldest person he had inked. He said he did an 85 year old woman the previous week. Mic drop.
Anyway, I found the item below and thought it was hilarious. Enjoy!
I mentioned perspective in a recent post. People see things from their own perspective and very often come to different conclusions given the same set of facts. Regular readers know I am an old guy, 77 years worth. And, I sometimes forget that I am seeing things way differently from my younger readers and friends. Like smoking. I know how terribly damaging cigarettes are to our bodies. I have a whole Page on it – How many way does smoking harm you? But I grew up in a world that accepted smoking as a part of our daily lives.
So here are some ads from my younger days that may not be familiar to you:

Here are some of the cigarette ads from TV before they were banned:
