And for My Next Number...

Sometimes you look at pictures - such as this intriguing snap from 1955 - and realize anew that the past is, indeed, another country.

  2. i look at my reflection and know
    that the past is another country.

    pose me in front of a baby baby like this?

  3. And speaking of Rocky Raccoon, you know that verse where they sing, Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
    Only to find Gideon's bible
    ?

    Now you’ll find this on your bedside table.

    The world really has changed.

  4. ...and mostly for the better.

    I just love this image. I imagine the racoon doing a spot-on Liberace: "Like my fur coat? You ought to - you paid for it!"
