Unauthorized Nightie

Just another typical Saturday night, chasing a sexy, wide-hipped brunette up and down the corridors of Harold's Purple Crayon Hotel.

Everybody loves stickers. Mucilage'd back. One would imagine this would come from the 1950s or '60s. Found in a drawer while preparing to move.

Cute? Sexy? Demented?

Win, Lose or Draw

The box opens like a little book, and includes a charming bit of doggerel, quite as racy as the brunette and her imminent spillage.

I like a game where stakes are high
And I can take the other guy
For all he's worth (within the law)
And play it straight - Win, Lose or Draw!

From a church thrift store.

Winning Aces

This deck features two poems. The Burgundy Lady's poem:

In that crucial situation
When you've wagered all you own,
Let the others have their horseshoes,
I'll take a WISHING BONE!

The Green Lady, on the other hand, offers this sentiment:

Comes the big pot of the evening
And your bankroll's pretty flat,
Who can blame a gal for raising
When she's holding ACES PAT?

Whatever it is the Bowman Products Co. is selling, I'll take a case of it.

Hit the Deck

I was going to deal out a hand of Solitaire but the rotary phone rang.
