My sister and brother-in-law

moved into a cabin

in the middle of nowhere

in Franklin, Indiana.

In the barn

(which rests on a significant

number of acres)

they found a bunch of magazines

from the 1940s.

Needless to say,

I took two of them.

I went back in time

to 1947

where The American Legion Magazine

boasts articles on the

'Science of Hats',

the 'Blueprint for World War III',

answers to why it's important

to hire disabled vets,

South American manners,

and 'Sports Varieties'.

Time Travel rules.

More to come

from back in the day

(back when Truman

not Trump was president)

the next time I visit

Franklin, Indiana.
