"I don't want to set the world on fire..."

Halloween was delightful- I viewed several performances of Larry Schmidt's always wonderful Driveway Follies. Michael was one of the puppeteers!

Also, I've been sorting the books in the Duchess Reading Room of Children's Fairyland, and I can't help but stop myself constantly when I come across books with 50's style illustrations. This one reminds me of being in the 4th grade, when we learned about simple machines, and I made a crane truck with sewing spools, string, and cardboard. FUN!

Speaking of retro, I am now addicted to Fallout 3 on the XBOX 360. Yep. It pretty much sucks up all of my free time.
