St. Patrick's Day

In 1912, a woman named Burnette sent the above card to another woman named Bertha. It's now 2007 and women's names are no longer quite so hideous, men's heads have gotten smaller, at least on paper, and entertaining a man no longer requires a musical instrument....

...yet alcohol has never gone out of favor.

End of chat.

  1. Happy St. Patties day! Thank goodness I don't have to entertain my husband with a musical instrument since I don't play on and when I sing he tells me to stop, and that I am "ruining the song"!
    Is that a monkey?

  2. The arteest definitely had issues with scale. That poor big-headed harpist.

    BTW. . .We don't have Scientologists around here to be afraid of--just some ultra-conservative Southern Baptists. . .although I just heard that Travolta is responsible for the new hangar that was built at the airstrip down the road. Uh oh.
