Great post. Especially love that shot of the beer with the lamp.

I first saw Tom Waits live in early 1975 in Norman, Oklahoma, as the opening act for Janis Ian (anyone still have her old LPs?). Tom stole the show, and I actually got to shake hands with Janis who was very pleasant with a sly sense of humor. (Long story.)

O.k. Great pics in this post.

Love the table full of people toasting for New Year's. Looks like a grand time!

And hot diggity damn, that looks like one fine country breakfast. YUMMY!

I see Mexican bingo cards! AHAHAHAHA! OMG! LOTERIA. I used to play that game as a kid with beans!

I love that Judy Chicago work. I did a report on her for my college art history class and was amazed at how many of my fellow age mates didn't know anything about the feminist movement. I mean, seriously people, it's not ancient history! :)
All your photos are lovely, and paired with such perfect words. Excellent :)
