Cassidy Gets Caricatured

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Thought I'd share something fun; Lord knows we could use it these days, right?

The company I work for held our annual summer barbecue today. The food was terrific, and the weather was perfect (70, breezy, and overcast - i.e. no sunburn risk for the cadaverous-pallored likes of myself). Even better, they had caricaturists there once again, as they did a few years ago. I sat for one for the first time in a few years.

For reference, this is from 2015:


And here is this year's model (to quote Mr. Costello):


Alice and Deanna were kidding me earlier this afternoon about the apparent growth of, er, "the girls" in the intervening three years; I advised them it was a textbook case of artistic license. :D

Anyway, it was a fun day, and I'll be picking up a couple of frames to hang these up this weekend. :c)

Have a pleasant Friday, everyone!

Since I quoted Mr. McClanus earlier, I thought I should share a few songs from 1978's This Year's Model, the second in his amazing run of classic albums (from 1977's My Aim Is True to 1982's Imperial Bedroom). First up is a great live performance from the Capitol Theatre in Passaic NJ of "This Year's Girl":


And here's another from the same May 5, 1978 show; probably my favorite song from that album - "The Beat":


Man, were the Attractions an incredible band or what? Going to be listening to some EC this weekend, for sure...

Umm....yes, your growing girls (to be expected of course) were the second thing I noticed after the hair. You know I've always been in love with your red locks, Cass, and it's clear the artists agree.

Thank you, Miss C! :#) I can only wish the girls looked like this in real life! lol

How are you? We are long, long overdue for a chat! Let me know a good day/time, and let's make it happen! Meanwhile, have a great weekend, hon!

Hugs,
Cass
