Day 71 - The Court Jester

"So they sent for a witch with a terrible twitch to ask how my future impressed her. She took one look at me... and cried, "He, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, *HE*! What else could he be but a jester?" A jester? A jester? A funny idea, a jester. No butcher, no baker, no candlestick maker, and me with the look of a fine undertaker impressed her as a jester? But where was I to learn any comical turn? It was not in a book on a shelf. No teacher to take me, to mold me and make me a merryman, fool or an elf.
But I'm proud to recall that in no time at all, with no other recourses but my own resources, with firm application and determination... I made a fool of myself!"

-Hubert Hawkins (Danny Kaye) in The Court Jester

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night....

And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds."

-Luke 2:8,18

Day 67 - Pioneer Woman

Let's hope he didn't walk across the plains in that flip-flop. Maybe he stopped before he got to Utah and built a "Little House on the Prairie."

Laura Ingalls: My pa works hard.
Nellie Oleson: So does a mule.

Day 64 - Firefighter Calendar Hunk

His popularity is growing, so maybe it's time to prepare for a "Wave at the Bus" calendar.

...not quite as cold as yesterday's shorty shorts, but close.
