Not a quiz blog, or anything like it. Just relax, read and think about the images. It's easy as that.

I'm sure I speak for Monsieur Cooke when I thank you for the kind words.

Y'all come back now, y'hear!

Hi Sarah! Are you really from Thunder Bay? I had a roommate from there once. I hear the lutkefisk there is to die for.

As Tom says, there is no test, you are not required to fill in any blanks other than the comment form, this will not go down on your permanent record. Enjoy the images, and check out some of the works described herein.

Went to Squishydirt...I guess you're still in the early stages. I'll check it out again later.

What a great cover! It's right up there with "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers"! Thanks for posting it!

Flora was an in-house artist at Columbia in the late '40s and into the '50s, and this is one of his many fine album covers. I'm sure more will surface in this series in coming weeks...
