Dangit!

I've had that song in my head all day long.

Make up your mind

I can't tell if the lady is in the act of being seated or of rising to her feet. I guess we'll never know. One thing is for sure: one boy is a boy, two boys is half a boy, and three boys is no boy at all.

And little would they have guessed

it would fall in Arizona.

London Bridge is falling down --

Brings back memories. Wonder if kids still play that.

And the boys' names?

Meet Cheek, Trouble and Mischief.

Sorry, ma'am --

But you're still in the photograph. Duck just a bit lower, please.
