Yes, this is me, age ten. I had
just secretly pocketed a giant cookie from
Stella Rickwa's baking powder display
in the Science Exhibit at school.
The teacher asked sternly,
None of my classmates ratted on me,
probably because I offered
to share it during recess.
No one partook of the contraband, however.

OK, it's not a truly great collage,
but it is a truly true story.

Giraffes Crossing the Road Sort Of

I used to make miniature dioramas in my past life. So I have
a collection of miniature figures, people, animals, etc. made
by Preiser, a company that caters to railroad train set buffs.
Sadly that hobby is disappearing because kids prefer
to play with electronic games and technology
rather than set up a miniature world on their floor.
Boo hoo, I say.

Just for fun I photographed these tiny figures (2 inches high)
on a calendar photo. And then I altered one of them
in Photoshop and incorporated it into the image
"He Rocked the World" (January 28th).
