  1. I love Currier and Ives!

    For years, I used to send Christmas cards bearing images from "the halcyon days" of Currier and Ives.

  2. Olde Worlde Charme seems to have little currency in this Smart-Phone, Lady Ga-Ga world, doesn't it, AOW?

    Well, that needn't spoil it for us!

    I continue to rejoice in what I know to be good, true, charming, beautiful, touching -- and funny.

    I have little use for "Righteousness" when labelled as such. True righteousness is FELT not STATED -- LIVED not PREACHED. And it is never MOCKING or CRUEL.
