Here are some more of Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers.  Just for fun, note dates (where visible) and the price.

This is a true item from the San Jose Mercury ‘Action Line’ --

I had lunch at Taco Bell a while back with a co-worker, and when she opened her order, she walked back to the counter and showed it to the employee while pointing to the pictures on the menu and said: "Does this look like that?"

They made her a new one.

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, “I know what the Bible means!”  His father smiled and asked, “What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?” The son replied, “I do know!” Said the father, “Okay, what does the Bible mean?” The young boy replied excitedly, “It stands for 'Basic Information Before  Leaving Earth.'”


  1. August 23, '30. Jump to August 23, 2011 and the couple will BOTH be on their Blackberries at Starbucks.

  2. We watch Antiques Roadshow all the time and saw a painting by another Saturday Evening Post artist. (sorry, drawing a blank on the name) That publication sure chose great artists for the cover art!

  3. I love that last one: they got so into their song the fiddle itself became too much a distraction.
