  1. Amanda, I guess they tried to get everyone hooked the world over. I have an old ad like that of a cowgirl in a large cowboy hat promoting Turkish cigarettes.

    1. I used to smoke when I was in Greece - hard not to with everyone around you smoking :)) but strangely enough, I don't miss it~

    1. You don't see them very often - but the little village where I saw this still seems to have never left the 1950s!

  4. Why'd they have to make smoking so sexy? I wonder if e-cigs will be like that too.

    1. If the ad execs have anything to do with it, they most certainly will make e-cigs sexy!

  6. Popping in to see what you're up to. You are an intrepid globetrotter and collector of all things quietly wild, Sis.
