Saturday, I rallied a bit to celebrate Bastille Day with my friends. In Philly, the Eastern States Penitentiary stands in for the Bastille...nice, grey and very forbidding. There is even a working guillotine for chopping watermelons rather than Marie Antoinette's neck.
Marie grandly declares, "Let them eat cake!" and the crowd below is pelted with...Twinkies? It used to be so much better when it was Tastycake Butterscotch Krimpets...sigh.
It is fun though to see the little kids there with their catcher mits seeing how many they can grab. This is my editorial Twinkie shot...
But even better was the presence of one of literature's most notorious knitters, Madame Defarge. She was so pleased to show off her knitting and be recognized. Fortunately my name was no where to be found on her lovely scarf. My neck is safe for now!
Are you happy now, Judy?
