As you may have noticed, most of what you're getting these days is the Daily Double. That's simply not good enough. So, I propose to take the next 10 days off, and upon my return you will be treated to all the wonderful wonderfulness you've come to expect from the Full Service Bohemian. Thank you for your patience and support.
On the Full Service Bohemian-al calender, February 14 (aka Valentine's Day) is the first day of Spring. And the first day of Spring, means, among other things, ELO, History's GREATEST rock band, bar none.
Hello, hello again! For today's Daily Double, we have...
A very happy, very playful elephant.
Either US Air Force or maybe they're Navy fliers. You be the judge. Both our pachyderm-ial friend and the flyboys are on all kinds of neat stuff, including decals, notebooks, gift wrap, apparel, etc. etc. etc. etc. Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127, and in the 'Search This Store' box, enter either 'flyboys,' or 'elephant'
It's rare to get such a candid image of His Royal Highness on his throne, but get it we did. It's not well-known, but he took himself out of the line-up for King of Newjerseyia in 1946, in order to train to be a steamfitter. Prince Jimmy appears on all sorts of wonderful and needful items. Go towww.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127, and in the 'Search This Store' box, enter 'confident' (I have him listed as 'confident boy.' since I didn't want to offend the palace. Next...
There's something about Larry. What, I have no idea. Maybe you do. Maybe you don't. Maybe no one does, including Larry. Sometimes, that's just the way it is. In any case, the above image is available on a bunch of stuff you might sorely need, like notepads, and cards, and notebooks, and trinket boxes, and tshirts, and tote bags, etc. etc. Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127, and enter 'Larry'
I actually kind of like Trenton. It has good thrift stores, and I was once a member of Trenton's (professional!) Magnet Theatre Company. Which didn't last very long, because Trenton is not known for anything other than being the capital of New Jersey. I don't even think Harrisburg, which is usually Number 1 in the lists of culture-free state capitals, has less going on than Trenton.
There's some wonderful housing stock there, and if they could just get it gentrified or more jobs or whatever, it would be a nice place to live. I think.
I'm so sorry that the Tuesday Song of the Week was not posted on Tuesday. I've been insanely busy. Anyway, here it is:
"Mercy Mercy Mercy" - The Buckinghams
Last week the hubs and I went to a jazz piano concert featuring the guy the hubs takes piano lessons from. The teacher, Mark Brown. played this song, which actually began life as a 100% instrumental. (You can tell, because 'Mercy Mercy Mercy' is not in the lyric.)
A happy Saturday to everyone! Now onto our stuff. Well, no. Just wanted you to know that next week there will be lots more non-Zazzle stuff. But there will also be Zazzle. And maybe even The Lady's Letter-Writer. NOW, on to the double... Here's lovely, sweet Elsie the Cow and her daughter, little Beulah,
Apparently, it's cake time.
It should ALWAYS be cake time.
And here's some mucho macho cargo guy.
Both Elsie and Cargo Guy are available on a ton of stuff, including t-shirts, mugs, notebooks, decals, clocks, plates, and oodles more. Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127, and in the 'Search this store' box, enter either 'Elsie' or 'cargo.'
Sorry to have missed the daily double yesterday. I'm going coo coo bananas trying to work my regular antique-dealing dealie, getting the Zazzle shop going, working on a book that's almost finished (YAY), plus all the home-related work, like cat management, vacuuming, and overall house de-revulsionizing. Not your problem, obviously. I'll try to do better. And now for what you came for... Today's theme is kittens!
This is more correctly 'the Tuesday Piece of Music of the Week.' From From Russia with Love...
YouTube calls this '007 Takes The Lektor'
I saw the movie for the first time only in the last few years, but I've known this piece of music, like, forever. It used to be the theme for Eyewitness News (one of the three local news shows in the City of Bothersome Love.)
True fact: the world has a face and two hands, and wears a bowtie. Above is the proof.
The above is available on coasters, dinner plates, cards, decals, apparel, mugs, etc. etc. etc. Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127, and in the box marked 'Search This Store' enter 'globe.' Note that on Zazzle, there aren't any watermarks.
