I picked up an old scrapbook album in a thrift store over the weekend because of these fantastic hand-lettered shop signs that were still mounted in its pages.
Today I opened it up for a better look and came across this little pencil drawing of a bewildered Hitler tucked in the back. Surprise.
Ajuga, hosta, flagstone, goldfish grass. We’re getting somewhere.
Clowns have been all over the news lately and it reminded me of my favourite clown sighting. Perhaps it’s actually more of a skeleton sighting, but either way you have to admit this kid is amazing.

My second favourite clown sighting happened last month at Dragon Con, when I overheard a man in the street yelling into a cellphone: “Aw shit! Aw SHIT! They got IT here man, they got IT here!” while around the corner, a clown with a balloon slipped off into the crowd.
