Here's a photo of an abandoned schoolhouse located on a ridge high above and south of The Dalles. I continuously marvel at how dry the climate is on the other side of the Cascades when compared to the Willamette Valley. In the Valley, structures like this rot away in a few years when left to nature. But in Central Oregon they last a century or more. This school even has the remnants of a swing-set left over. It's the kind of place where, if you actually did attend classes, you could honestly say to your kids, 'Boy, I had walk to school nine miles uphill, in snow, both ways, every day, when I was your age!'

Part of a playground climbing gadget for children. Probably intended to prepare them for the maze of adult life full of traps and escape routes....


At the massive Puyenbroeck playground for children from 1-90.

Of course, you didn't get enough parts with an Erector set to build a full-size Mad Scientist's table, but I could build one big enough for those vivisection experiments on Renwal's "Visible Woman"--a versatile actress herself, she could play the part of Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren or Ann-Margaret, or Elizabeth Montgomery, Mary Tyler Moore or Tina Louise, or any of the others in the "cast of thousands" in my fiendish fantasies. My retired great grandfather sold advertising novelties and I really did have calendars like that one as a kid (wish I still had 'em!); IIRC, the nudie cuties on them were generic blonde bombshells, not Jayne Mansfield and other known sex symbols, but I figured a little artistic license wouldn't hurt. I wonder what life would have been like the if the Russkies hadn't launched Sputnik in '57 and all those companies hadn't brought out all those educational toys in an attempt to cram our doltish little brains with math and science? Or, if Maidenform hadn't launched their "I dreamed..." ad campaign...?


Note--this is best viewed at full-size (otherwise, a lot of detail is too small. I wish changing them to JPEG images didn't muddy the colors!)
