My work is keeping me indoors, but outside it's absolutely springy and sunny and I hear birds (even through my closed windows)! I believe there's still ice on our lakes, so no canoeing yet... the good news is, the snow is almost all melted.

Seriously, this used to be my favorite "sport" in elementary school; as well as stilts, the nerf pogo-ball, this makeshift board that balanced on a cylinder, lemondrop, sit and spin and pretty much any 'solo' style loser game. Anyhow, i'd be up for a game, but haven't spotted the apparatus anywhere in minneapolis. maybe tetherball was a michigan and estonian thing?

I'm not exactly sure what this is or where it came from or ... maybe it rolled in on a blustery day? It was dusk and it made me do a double take and venture across MCAD's snowy lawn to get a closer look—a monster plastic snowball?

Wishing you the best day, night and year—Breaking Bonaduce Deutscher Stil! Happy Birthday lovely.
From my cig.cardcollection —"Unsere Bunten Filmbilder" (1935).
There are 275 cards in all. Check out the stars and their fine expressions. Some of my other favorites: #51 + 60 + 235. I think you will enjoy them too.

I am a sucker for reference materials, so these small guide books are amongst my favorites.
If you own some of these, you probably appreciate their usefulness when it comes to identifying a particular species; not to mention the great illustrations, the back covers, the end papers and the sweet compact size. The books shown here were published between 1930-1939 by Whitman Publishin and measure 5.5" X 3.5".
