And now, a toast!

Today this blog is exactly two years old, and to mark the occasion, I popped open a whole bottle of champaign all for myself.  
So, here's to me! (gank...gank...gank...gank...)

This oddball illustration, created in 1955 for an LP of Disney songs by the Lawrence Welk Orchestra, bubbles over with cut-out paper heads glued to a painted background board (Yup, that's Davy Crockett there, but did you recognize Captain Nemo?!)  I love the way this artwork tickles my nose.

"ah-one and ah-two..."

Strangely, I did recognize Nemo - in fact, it was the first thing I noticed when I saw the picture. Maybe I have instant Nemo recognition from the Disneyland Records read-along 45.

The Welk-Disney synergy amuses me. Not long ago, I caught one of his old specials that was nothing but Disney music and song-and-dance numbers. It was captivating and terrifying.

Congrats on the anniversary, and as Lawrence would say, "thank yeh boys".

Happy Anniversary Kevin. If I were there we'd pop open another bottle of bubbles and listen to some Lawrence Welk to celebrate.
