September 2012

Thought I’d share a photo of my new license plate – how Senor was available in the state of Arizona is beyond me, but it does pose a serious challenge to the racial profiling of Hispanics in the city of Phoenix as practiced by our notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I just don’t know how an officer is going to react when he pulls me over and I greet him with “Shalom, amigo!”

I truly apologize for this being my latest BOTM entry level ever. I have a number of rock-solid excuses that are available upon request if you will be kind enough to send me a self-addressed stamped envelope and a picture of you drinking gin rickeys with any two original members of The Kingston Trio.

Let’s get down to blanket business. From the Allison Bellows collection comes an absolutely unique trade blanket from an unknown manufacturer. It dates c. 1895-1910 and yes, apparently even Indians couldn’t resist a trendy animal print.  Grrrrr!
