The Pajama Program seeks nurturing books and sleepwear for kids in need

January 20, 2015

The Pajama Program is a nationwide effort to help underprivileged kids in need by offering pajamas and books supplied by donors. Some of these children live in group homes, shelters, or are shuffled from one place to another. Many of them have been abandoned, abused or neglected.

We just donated copies of The Wonderful, Happy, Cartoony World of Steve & Bluey to the Pennsylvania branch, and hope you will help us by spreading the word about The Pajama Program.

Thanks!

Christmas and The Senator Theater

January 4, 2015

I recently received a very thoughtful gift from my Aunt Pat: a reel bought at auction from Baltimore’s famous Senator Theater. It’s reel 3 of Vengeance (1977) sometimes called Kid Vengeance. Starring Jim Brown and Leif Garrett.

This lovely moment was captured by Owen Dawson.
