    My wife surprised me with a gift of a reproduction of this Schlitz ad, from around 1952 I think. I'm not sure I can imagine her waiting on me hand and foot to bring me beers while I spend countless hours on the radio. But she is remarkably indulgent in accommodating my hobby, and having a laugh about it as well.

    That is really really nice. I'd keep her if I were you.

    Ahem..... :D:D (I believe there's one other, and his is a bit larger in the crop)

    I might add that when I first saw this ad back in 2006, I checked all the callsigns - W2BOB is
    the only "real" one - I emailed with him then - he had no idea his call had been used in a
    beer ad, even while the ad was current (he's had the call for decades).

    Fun stuff.!

    Despite my avatar, my XYL doesn't bring me a cool one to the shack either.

    Well... we can all dream of such a thing occurring can't we?

    Interesting antenna setup you have on your townhouse; well done!

    Times have sure changed since 1952. Women in dresses and men wearing ties at home. I can remember my family driving across country in the 1950's and my father wearing a suit every day of the trip.
