This is one of our favorite WWII photos. Taken in 1945, it shows thousands of troops pulling in to NY Harbor aboard the Queen Elizabeth. If this was 2016, there would be thousands of family members there waiting, but back in 1945, train travel was expensive and arrival ships (and dates) often changed. So after they got off the boat, they'd get a train ticket then go to Western Union to send a "I'm back - see you Tuesday!" telegram.
In line for bread during Great Depression This helped the homeless people in towns and cities but didn't get very far a field into the farms and rural homeless. some people fell through the cracks. Lyndon Johnson made some important actions toward making the hunger problem easier but now in 2013 hunger has noticed to have gotten down to the children and if we didn't have free food at school many children would not have any real food. Thank you Pres. Johnson
Charles Schulz (1922-2000). The inspiration for Snoopy was the Schulz's insane black and white pup, Spike. The "hunting dog" scoured for pins, tacks and razor blades and was generally uncontrollable. In fact, Spike would often race away from the house anytime a door was cracked open, and it was only his love for going on car rides that brought him back. Any time Spike made an escape, Charles would have to run and start honking his father's car horn repeatedly to lure the dog back home.
