Up shot at Paperback Exchange on 50th and Penn in Minneapolis. Could easily become anybody’s new favorite used bookstore if it isn’t already.

Photo about how I haven’t had a drink since April 1, 2013. One year.

Found this at an estate sale, down in the basement… creepy cute, 1.5 inches tall and cost me a quarter.

So, I’ve been a little busy. Who hasn’t? Here are a couple from the archives, dusted off and freshened up. First internet appearance as far as I can remember.
Happy re-branded pagan holiday, try not to eat any Christian babies.
