I got a stack of the little 1950s, 1960s and 1970s PMs and PSs (Popular Science) from my local library about 1986 when the librarian decided to throw the musty old things out.

I've hauled the dang things from Oklahoma to Fort Dix, NJ and back again .

I love Uncle Tom's articles as well as the gadgets, new inventions and that sexy chick who always posed with the new item - what the heck is her name ?

Gigi, right ?

My stack of 'em reside in a place of honor - the linen closet in my bathroom and they are oft read when I'm.......creating.

(Gun nuts like me also love the ads in the back of the 1950s ones with mint German Lugers for $19, delivered to your door !!!)
