Above, the September 1 page from the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963 with a photo by Ron Vogel of a petite model lounging in the garden in an unclothed state. She has two drinks because when you’re out in the hot sun you have to stay hydrated. Either that or she’s waiting for a friend. The observations this week include one from radio personality John Doremus, and another from Freddie Flintstone. We’re actually starting to think the Flintstone quotes are not actually from the television cartoon. We’ve seen the show, and we can’t imagine Fred making a quip that features the words “bonds” and “interest.” And besides, why refer to him as Freddie? He was always called Fred, as far as we know. Anyone with insight on this question, drop us a line.

It must be her hundredth dive.
Above, a page from the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963 with an image from Burton McNeely, who when last seen a couple of months ago was working above water, but this time decided to try a new perspective with a scuba diving model. She’s obviously on her hundredth descent (for those who don’t know, tradition in the tropics is to celebrate dive number one hundred by going in naked, but how forcefully you’re encouraged to do so depends either on what you look like or how much you had to drink when the subject came up). Anyway, the results here are rather nice. Can’t wait to see dive two-hundred. The quotes this week are as usual, including a musing from that acclaimed social critic Fred Flintstone.
