Just sayin’

It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor. – Neil Gaiman (whoever he is/was)

I found the pic at Elms Puzzles. They make custom wooden jigsaw puzzles. This is from a series by an artist called Gwen Connelly. Ain’t it loverly?

    oh Lil— you are a LOVE, a LOVE!!! I tell you— And? the knife posts were both upsetting (so sorry about the slicing of the finger–ouchie!!) and informative, all the superstitions— I had a very bad knife cut (come to think of it it was a brand-new knife that was given to us as a wedding gift– aahhhhhh baddddd) once and had to get 7 stitches on my one poor finger and, wait for it, I did it without anesthesia!! God, am I insane? And? I waited nearly 24 hours before I went in for surgery cause I kept thinking it would stop bleeding. Am an idiot.Oh wai, musst stop cutting myself down– am STOIC! there it is.~bluepoppy
