Death of a Snowman

You might as well cry because it looks like he won’t be back some day.  I just hope he wasn’t alone when it happened.

Today the mailman dropped off my January edition of Cooks Illustrated.  They also accidentally delivered someone else’s copy of Maxim, featuring the beautiful Olga Kurylenko, the newest Bond girl

As I sit here, I am reading the Cooks Illustrated.

Quote from an AP story about the recent deaths of Norman Mailer, William Styron, and Kurt Vonnegut.

“Vonnegut was the American Mark Twain. He even looked liked him. Everybody loved Vonnegut, whereas Norman was a much more controversial figure,” says J. Michael Lennon, the literary executor for Mailer, who died Nov. 10 at age 84.”

I realize he was from Missouri but still, wasn’t Mark Twain, America’s Mark Twain?

Actually, if this guy is Vonnegut’s Agent, he’s probably chuckling to himself that they actually published his quote.

These are Iraqi Army Trainees being led through warmups by an American Soldier.  It makes me laugh every time I watch it.
