Hope I'm not violating any copyright laws...that's today's "Brewster Rockit" comic strip written and illustrated by Tim Rickard...love that comic...the guy's a genius and did a perfect job of capturing the essence of this day for most couples...who me, cynical?
Here's a little bit of how we celebrated today:
Snowing and blowing today, with temps headed toward zero and wind chills down to 25 below:
Of course, our furry woodland creature friends don't have that option, so I tossed out some peanuts for them today:
Mr. Squirrel enjoying a frozen snack on my armillary sundial. Might as well use it as picnic table b/c it's sure not getting much use as a sundial in this dark, cold, winter.
Snapped this pic of the Triumvirate of Terror, currently wintering in my garage:
The creature from the Black Lagoon - for whom Marilyn felt sorry in "The Seven Year Itch" - the scarecrow, and of course my favorite, Mr. Bolts. Hang on boys, All Hallows Eve will be here before you know it...
As you would expect in a Hugh Grant rom-com, there are many funny throw away lines...one I thought was particularly clever was when he was commenting on Marisa Tomei's character's consistent optimism: "It's very American, like country music, or, um, obesity..."
A recent ebay purchase:
Fatima cigarette dispenser...needs a little cleanup and a lid, but allegedly works correctly. Yet another art deco objet d'art for this mid century modern collector...hhhmmmm...
Happy Valentine's Day, art deco / mcm fans...
