Journey Back in Time...and Some Goats!

Hello everyone!  Welcome!  The video I have chosen for this post is a short, one minute vintage 1961 Coca Cola ad.  I admit to drinking Coke and other soft drinks in my younger days, but even though I no longer drink Coke, I feel that they have made some excellent ads over the years.  I don't remember this particular one, though!  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took on my nature park walk.  :)  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.




Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I really hope you enjoy this post, and that it doesn't "get your goat."  LOL!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments link at the end of my post.

  1. I've been watching some of the alternate videos that came up after the clip you featured. Wow, the message to women in the 50s was be sweet and subservient. Pfffft!

  5. I do not remember this ad. In those years I only drank milk. :-)
    And these animals are very stubborn, but very photogenic.

  7. I haven't drunk pop for many years. Back in the 80's I discovered lime flavored carbonated water. It has been my beverage of choice ever since!

  11. That was when coke was a coke and came in a small glass bottle. The message of it being healthy and a subtle hint about thinness made me laugh. The goats are cute and seem to be enjoying the shade.

  12. That ad was hilarious. Back in the days when cigarettes were healthy and Coke made you thin...oh boy.

    Very cute goats!

  13. I've cut back on my soft drink intake as well...my memories of Coke are pleasant ones however. Love goats...such funny critters!

  14. I need to cut back on my coke drinking - - but it is funny that they were trying to make us believe the empty calories were fine - - even though we know fruit is better! Glad you found that. I had never seen it.
