Plum Pudding Day

Did you really think I'd do something as obvious as Lincoln's Birthday today? Did you know that today is also "Plum Pudding Day"? Plum pudding is also known as "Figgy Pudding" and, all these years, I've been thinking that the line in the Christmas carol was "bring me some friggin pudding". Silly me. Just look at how much you can learn from this weekly masterpiece.

How about a Frank poem?

Little Jack Horner

Sat in the corner

Eating a blueberry pie

He stuck in his thumb

And pulled out a plum

And screamed

What the hell is a plum doing in a blueberry pie?

It was a good week for Annie. She has found a new dermatologist and it seems like her hands are finally on the mend. She had further evidence that it may be the polymer clay that her hands are allergic to so she will be taking a break from working with the clay for a while. In the meantime, she has been working with resin so you will be seeing more resin-based jewelry along with the Love This Beach Collection. You will see a few of these new items a little further on in this newsletter.

Here is Annie's poem of the week,

Meet Me At the Marsh

Flooding the Marsh was a welcome event,

firming the fact

that the gray days were gathering

And it was skating weather.

Plans were passed

blades were sharpened

hot chocolate steamed on the stove.

We doubled our socks and gloves.

And breathed in the perfume of

pine wood camp fires across the lot.

When the challenge was spoken

we raced for the mother rock,

a ghostly, glacial gift looming large.

We tangled with the marsh grass

gliding past nets and scraping hockey sticks.

Red-cheeked and dreaming of dancing on ice.

We feasted on frigid air

for a few precious hours

until darkness deepened and called us home.

That's it for this week, stay safe and shop small, shop local and shop online (but only small biz). Say goodnight Shorty.

Frank and Annie
