Autumn Cometh, with Tang

The coming of fall feels a little like this Tang commercial from 1967. Tang, the Space Age drink! Anyone else ever make "Russian Tea" with Tang? Powdered instant tea and lemonade with Tang, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves? Oh, yes. A "holiday treat," if memory serves. Approved by cosmonauts and astronauts alike . . .

We're done with summer, the worst season, and on to the good ones, all three in a row. Thank God!

Happy Autumn, all!

Today's Rune: Possessions.

I always wanted to drink Tang but my mom didn't buy it. I don't know if it was the cost or not.

I used to drink Tang as a kid. Can't really say I miss it, but I'd drink it again if offered a glass.

Same goes with Spam. Used to eat as a kid, and I eat it again if offered.

I don't remember that add. Can't stand Tang.

Charles, interesting. Let's just say you weren't missing much!

JR, agreed on both counts.

Nunya, that little stirring motion in the ad is kinda cute. Of course, it's all ludicrous as most ads are.
