Let’s play.

.

Yes, we’re still doing this. Humor me and play along.

I’ll show you the exact poster I had on my wall as a teenager, but it won’t help you guess my age.

I didn’t have Queen, Micheal Jackson or Blondie.

No….

I had Humphrey Bogart. Because yes, I was a bit of an odd kid.

I bought the poster at our local five and dime in New Jersey when I was 13, then rolled it up and carried it with me to Maine when I moved at 15.

Hell, I think it was still on the door to my apartment when I married my husband at 20.

Because let’s face it…. Bogey’s brand of cool is timeless.

In searching for a picture to include here, I ran across one for sale on eBay.

The seller may be asking a hefty sum for an old poster, but they need to check their research. If Bogey was acting in 1970, after he died in 1957?

He deserved another Oscar.

  1. When I was a teenager, I had Bruce Lee and Candy Loving (Playmate of the year). Candy was on my door so my mother wouldn’t see it. Eventually, she closed the door behind her and came face to… er… face with Candy…

      1. Grew up in the 50s, came of age in the 60s. My taste in women was not predicated on what I saw on TV, but rather on what attracted me all on my own.

  2. Never had a room as a kid (9th of 10 children) but when I was much much older I had two posters I loved. One was Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, featuring Animal on the drums, and one that was probably not seen outside of San Francisco except the one I still have but it is too old to have up anymore. The poster was for the Closing Week of Filmore West, with all the bands paaying that week. It is rock history. If it were in perfect shape it would probably be worth in the high thousands to a collector, but I moved all over the country with it. It is fairly beat up now.
    If I can find it I will post a picture.

      1. I will be looking in two weeks. I have to go into the city (800 kms away) for medical reasons and won’t be back until next weekend. Now, all I gotta do is remember then what my intentions are now. Unfortunately that does not always happen, lol.
