The Star Made Me Buy It

The Studio Realist was a VERY cool camera, which had three separate lenses, leading to 3D prints.

I think.  

I also have a Studio Realist ad with Joan Crawford somewhere.

This is my first Fred Astaire ad.

My sweet kitty Shlamoo has gone over the Rainbow Bridge.

She was epic sweet.  A very quiet little spirit, with a purr that sounded exactly like the noise the tribbles made in that old episode of Star Trek.  

This picture made it to Cute Overload:
above is a 100% unretouched photo.

Then I made a scarier version:

When her sister Tippy passed back in May, something in Shlamoo just started to fail.  Things got steadily worse, until she passed two days ago.  

She was buried this morning.

Rest in piece, sweet kitty.

Mug of the Month

You know what I have zero interest in?

Space movies.

So boring.  

So is everything else having to do with outer space.

Zzzzzzzzzzzz.

But I'm aware that some people can't get enough of it, which brings us to our Mug of the Month:
A kid who can't get enough of it,
to the point that he's wearing a space suit
Could that have been YOU once?

And maybe STILL you??

Get the mug here:
