This great image is from a 1937 ad for the Italian Line of ocean liners. Their ads from the late 1930s seemed to always feature blue ocean and a ship bathed in sunlight. It’s especially appealing since our weather here in the East has been frigid the entire month of January. Most years we have a few days of 60 degree temperatures, but it wasn’t until yesterday that we reached that mark. It was an extraordinary day, with crystal blue skys and a mild breeze.
Today, we were back to the ice box, but despite a forecast for overcast skys, there was plenty of that beautiful sunshine. I decided to take a few minutes and pretend I was on this ship sailing into the sun. So I got out the electric blanket, set my lawn chair in a sunny corner of the porch, wrapped up and enjoyed being an ocean liner passenger. Then my husband appeared and asked why I was pretending to be a TB patient at a sanitorium!
