Datebook Catch-Up

The quote: "But love is blind and lovers cannot see/ The pretty follies that themselves commit;/ For if the could, Cupid himself would blush/ To see me thus transformed to a boy." —William Shakespeare (1546-1616)

If you can name the play, you will see how it all ties in.

The quote: "The truth that makes men free is, for the most part, the truth which men prefer not to hear." —Herbert Agar

The quote: "It's the good girls who keep diaries; the bad girls never have the time." —Tallulah Bankhead (1903-1968)

Is a datebook considered a diary? You be the judge.

That odd little drawing in the corner was an idea I had for the last Illustration Friday (moon). A moon made of swiss cheese would make on eheck of a grilled cheese sandwich. It was funnier and far more spectacularly executed in my head.

The quote: "Anybody caught selling macrame in public should be dyed a natural color and hung out to dry." —Calvin Trillin

The quote: "Students achieving Oneness move on to Twoness." —Woody Allen.

Yep, I sold my house on Friday, July 20th. This would explain why I haven't been posting much. Well, this and a crazy work schedule.

The quote: "Into every life a little rain must fall." —Grandma. I'm guessing she was not the origin of this quote, but it was a favorite for my whinier moments. It's part commiseration and part smack down really—very effective.

The quote: "Be true to your teeth or they'll be false to you." —Grandma

Despite the fact that I post quotes here fairly often, I don't have a lot of quotes memorized. Of the few that have stuck in the grey matter, this one rises to the top very easily...oh well.

The drawing was done on July 28th at Ravinia Park while listening to the CSO.

Just catching up on your blog and I'm happy to see my beloved watermelon featured!! Liked your drawing of the dome, too -- where is it?

That dome exists only in my imagination. That's what Vienna looks like in my head instead of from a photo reference.
