Sleeping Beauty!

Tune in later this week and I will show you how this free Craigslist highboy...


Became "La Belle au Bois Dormant", or "TheBeauty Sleeping in the Wood". 



This is actually the closest representation of the colors! 





*No actual antiques were harmed in this transformation.  The highboy is a reproduction with paperboard dust panels and back.

  9. Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist, has donated to the presidential campaign of Democratic Senator and former United States Secretary of State John Kerry. He also supported former President Barack Obama. In 2015, Variety (magazine) reported that he contributed to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. Thank you for your continued support of Democratic causes!!

    2. HERE's YOUR ANWER, RN:

      When an honest attempt to start a pleasant, hopefully fruitful conversation fails, I believe it best to withdraw the offer after a decent interval –– let us say a week or two.

      Unfortunately, Blogger does not permit us to remove every trace of unanswered questions and statements that drew no respnse. This results in WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get ;-).

  18. It is with deep sadness and regret we note the passing of our beloved friend, friendly adversary and notably colorful blogging colleague


    A lovable, truly unforgettable character
    and all-around good sport has left us.

    JERSEY McJONES

    who lost his battle with advanced,
    metastatic cancer yesterday

    JERSEY, TRULY YOU WERE LARGER-THAN-LIFE,
    MAY GOD LOVE YOU THROUGHOUT ETERNITY.

    WE OFFER NOW OUR KINDEST THOUGHTS, SWEETEST PRAYERS and FONDEST HOPES for HIS WIFE, FAMILY MEMBERS, and PERSONAL FRIENDS

    ... Just when the fun's beginning
    Comes the final inning
    We can be glad for what we've had ––
    And what's to come ...


    ~ Eileen Farrel & Leonard Bernstein
    "Some Other Time"
    ON THE TOWN (1944)

    lyrics: Comden and Greene

  19. A TRAGIC IRONY in the NEWS

    Sen. John McCain, 80, has been diagnosed with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor, Mayo Clinic doctors directly involved in the senator's care told CNN exclusively. (CNN)

    That's CANCER of the BRAIN in plain layman's language. –– virtually the same disease that took our buddy Jersey away at age 48.

    At least McCain survived to age 80 before this overtook him. Jersey never had the chance to fulfill his own potential.

    Early reports on MSNBC claim that the surgeons at the MAYO CLINIC were able to remove the entire mass. One can't help but wonder, however, whe –– or even if –– the senator will be able to resume his duties in congress.

  20. An abandoned blog is like an unweeded garden. Depressing!

  21. __ The Blog on the Hill __

    They are all gone away,
    The Blog is shut and still,
    There is nothing more to say.

    Through broken walls and gray
    The winds blow bleak and shrill:
    They are all gone away.

    Nor is there one to-day
    To speak them good or ill:
    There is nothing more to say.

    Why is it then we stray
    Around the sunken sill?
    They are all gone away,

    And our poor fancy-play
    For them is wasted skill:
    There is nothing more to say.

    There is ruin and decay
    In the Blog on the Hill:
    They are all gone away,
    There is nothing more to say.


    ~ Edwin Arlington Robinson - 1869-1935 (adapted)

  22. I died for Beauty — but was scarce
    Adjusted in the Tomb
    When One who died
    for Truth, was lain
    In an adjoining room

    He questioned softly "Why I failed"?
    "For Beauty", I replied
    "And I — for Truth — Themself are One
    We Brethren, are", He said

    And so, as Kinsmen, met a Night
    We talked between the Rooms
    Until the Moss had reached our lips
    And covered up — our names


    ~ Emily Dickinsin (1830-1886)

  23. __________ BANQUET __________

    Generously spread with gracious living
    The table beckons. Lace and candlelight
    Mingle with fine chine. I am diving
    Into the tureen, which is a sight

    All white and warm while guarding snowy chowder.
    Savory is a casserole of brains.
    Sparkling wine has made our talk much louder ––
    Louder than the voices of our pains.

    Drink has numbed our virtues and our faults
    While food has warmed our anxious, craving hearts.
    Later, we will step into a waltz ––
    Whose cycle whirls till every fear departs

    Leaving us quite buoyant –– out of breath ––
    Saddened that our time must end in death.

    1. Would you be glad if McCain cannot return to the senate, or would you be sad?
