Plastic surgery

(part of my display at Spirit and Kitsch, 210 Elmira Rd, Ithaca)
Speaking of dreams, I need to do a special report sometime soon on Alice Muhlbach, the guiding light of the Spirit and Kitsch Art Garage Cooperative. You could say 'who cares about her!' but by saying that you would be missing something. She is the wild and dreamy illustrator who paints every square inch of furniture and walls with birds (like raven in the painting above) and little men in dresses and hats.
Man, I am still dreaming this morning, so much so that there were complaints about breakfast. I had some serious facial disfigurement and Maude's cousin was a plastic surgeon and in my dream my whole head and face were being taken apart and sitting there on the table, needing to be worked on and put back together. As of wakeup, my jaw was sitting there, not yet attached.

Oh yeah, kiln is open, little monkey pots cooling and looking sharp, pics later!

Of course we care about Alice. I can imagine that waking up jawless would make one a little distracted.

Ooooph...that image has stayed with me. To be fully awake and aware that your jaw is sitting there, waiting to be replaced, 'how would you like it, sir?'. I had minor surgery once, and the dr. said beforehand 'ah, you're awake the whole time, nothing to it!'. well, there are times you DON'T want to see what's going on, like in surgery.

My wife is due to have carap tunnel surgery on her second wrist soonish. I'm going to ask the doctor if I can watch this time. I was sitting on the other side of the room last time, but the last doc didn't exactly exude approachableness for nutbar requests. ;-)

Ugh ... carpal tunnel surgery ... sheesh.

Gordo, last week you gave the world pictures of your brain, sliced deli style, as it were, a chopped up deer, and now this. Glad I am not married to you. Perhaps it is your natural intelligent inquisitiveness, in which case, you are forgiven.
