I'm not sure why but the Donald Duck peeking out from the box is kind of creepy.
Funny, I thought so, too. Altogether too cheerful on so bleak a day...
The Sibley's and binoculars belong in an Orvis catalogue. That's just too classy and born-to-the-manor for words.As for Donald, I have to know - is he a rubber soap dish? When I was around 6 or so, Santa himself showed up at our house and brought me a Donald Duck rubber floating soap dish for the tub. I haven't thought about that soap dish in years, and the second I saw that photo, decades collapsed ;-)
Linda-- Au contraire, the Sibley and the Swarovski 10x42 binoculars went into the snowy and arctic field today for the 10th Blue Rapids Christmas Bird Count. Starting temperature: six below. Finishing temp: a balmy one degree. The Donald Duck is an antique toy on display now at the museum. Not a bath toy, much larger. I was struck at his head sticking up out of the box and had to snap it.
Well, great pic of Donald nonetheless. Actually, I've known people who have that look in their eye. I try to avoid them.
Yeah, politicians and televangelists. Among others....
