I've Taken To Hittin' the Bottle...

Especially when the bottles look like these:

Ladies Choice
Apple Cider Vinegar
(oh my)

Sunny Jim
Pure Plum Preserves
"it's Good"

Folgers Coffee
Quail Tomatoes

I wonder what happened to all the brands listed above...other than Folgers Coffee, they're all gone now...as is the ability to make an artful and beautiful label for foodstuff (in my opinion)

I think I'm really wondering about these companies because I'm currently winding my way through Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. For the third time in my lifetime. I promised myself that I would reread this book as a gift to myself for the new year. If you've never read it, you should pick up a copy...but be ready for the size...the paperback is well over 1000 pages, and I personally find it an incredible page turner to boot. I also find it fitting perfectly into my life, answering questions that I have been finding myself asking and putting words into my mouth after taking them out of a hidden well deep within. But most of all, making me think. This book has always made me think...it's opened up new pathways of seeing things for me...forever questioning.

Have an amazing weekend...I will be reluctantly finishing up a great classic once again.

Ha! I'm reading Atlas Shrugged right now for my book club which meets this Monday. I have to admit, I'm not enjoying it as much as The Fountainhead. It is way too big and my version has teeny tiny print. Maybe if I didn't have so many other books stacked up to read, I would enjoy it more. Anyway WSJ had an interesting article on the book and comparing it to the economy we are in today.

Great photos! I do wonder where all these brands have gone too!

hitting the bottle again! Thought you wrote me you don't love wine... so you prefer the vinegar... :)

Looking old bottles in the glassy eye is good for the soul.
