Now, let's see, what made me smile this month?
How about my grandson, Miko, who we took out for breakfast after his hockey game. He has a whole different concept when you ask him to "smile" for a picture.
This is the other side of the Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine Tunnel in Montreal. It goes under the St. Lawrence River. It's a little disconcerting to see water dripping down throughout the tunnel. It gives Mrs D fits. But she was driving and I was...smiling.
There was just something photogenic about this guy at the Montreal Planetarium. He was smiling. At leafs I think that's a smile. Can you imagine how much toothpaste this guy would have to use. That thought made me smile.
In the middle of this picture is a CD by Brian Wilson called "Smile". There's a bit of a history to this CD. Wilson started work on it in 1966. It was to be the next Beach Boys album after Pet Sounds. Wilson's instability via mental illness and drugs is well known. The project was never completed...until finally in 2004 Wilson got it together, literally, finished the album with the help of Van Dyke Parks and released it. It won a Grammy.
I don't know about you but I like a good horror story from time to time. Things that go bump in the night, monsters under the bed and all that. Lucky for me my monsters under my bed are happy monsters.
See everybody next month!
