so, is that French coffee that's dripped, or coffee made by French dips? Never understood...
love the 60's groove, a little before my time

This was an awesome post...I had so much fun. I got to enjoy your artwork...while listening to the Zombies of course...loved that trip down memory lane. And your link for Chuck was so fun. I'd actually never heard of him until today. Love when people turn me on to new stuff.

thanks for the entertainment and much needed smiles today. Your the best!

I was a big Zombies fan many years ago, and was an impressionable youth when YOU SHOWED ME and TIME OF THE SEASON hit the charts. Of course I know Chucks work too, and appreciate the dazzling collage.

Hello, my friend.

tom: French Drip coffee is made with a pot where the top part contains the coffee grounds. You then pour the hot water into it and let the water drip through the grounds. Add water until the desired amount of coffee is made. Similar to a French Press, but perhaps even better flavor in this way.
You're just a kid. '60s seem like yesterday, sort of.

mg: Thanks for that and checking out Chuck. There are a few YT videos and he's quite funny in his interviews also.

sam: Although steeped into the music of SF then, groups like the zombies still made their mark. Hello and Thanks for stopping by!

Hi! C.M.,
Nice post!
Nice collage! (I like it!)
Nice sounds! (Even though I'am not familiar with the..."Zombies?!?" yet!)
Thanks, for sharing the link too!

I was able to post on your blog...
...Because my computer must be on the "brink"...because I'am unable to post on some Google blogs, Wordpress blogs, and some message boards.
Take care!
DeeDee ;-D

Nice post! My guess is that the Cocal Cola banner would have overridden the coffee shop's now!

1935? Wow.
