x is for x-ray

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) pilot & writer

are you excited we are almost to the end of the alphabet?

I'm sorry I know x-ray isn't exactly the most creative x word*, but, isn't this costume unorthodox - okay, it's a hoot, but I couldn't come up with a word for funny that includes an x! a couple weeks ago lakewood had it's annual spooky pooch parade which explains the 'costume.'

*but as for creativity, I give myself two points for coming up with a quote that fits and is from someone with an x in his name! the quote is from de saint-exupery's 1943 classic la petit prince. if we read the passage in french we do get another x!!!!

Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

vid from the 1974 film the little prince. this scene includes gene wilder, who plays the fox, sharing the secret with the little prince
