DOG FACT #18
According to folklore, Chinese emperors would keep Pekingese dogs in their clothes and use them as deterrents against attackers when necessary. It was also said that the emperor would choose four Pekingese to become loyal bodyguards.

Wonderful news! The iconic 1950s @dairyqueen sign from the recently shuttered store in Mesa, Arizona has been saved, reports @azcentral. The city is forking over $5,000 to a local preservation group to save the sign from the store that opened in 1949 (the sign went up a few years later). The goal is for the sign to end up in a planned neon-sign park. Mesa is a treasure trove of #midcentury roadside Americana, mainly along Main Street. (Scroll back on my feed to see Kiva Lodge; I have many more photos coming from Mesa.) Thankfully, even as development claims more of these places, the Mesa Preservation Foundation and other concerned citizens are looking out for these relics. #retrologist
