****** WARNING ***** Today’s post contains 10 graphic images of the Pirate’s ship removal. These were graciously donated by Progressland. “Heartbreaking” is how they were described and it’s an accurate description.
First, for happiness and reference, let’s looks at two photos from the good old days. December 29th, 1956, from Major’s site “Gorillas Don’t Blog”. She looks brand new still!
From Dave over at “Daveland Blog” This image with the Sails unfurled is from April 1958. Hey Dave, that slide looks familiar :-)

These appear to be from Late August / Early September 1982. Enjoy or ?
Ok, now just to get everyone back into the retro vintage grove, here is a placemat from a much brighter day on the Chicken of the Sea. Date unknown, anyone want to guess? Anyone want to guess what caused that stain on the lower left corner? Tuna I bet!
