While Rupaul may be some people's idea of the Grande Dame, and she is pretty stunning......in my opinion THE GRANDE DAME is always going to be the over the top, fowl mouthed, retro fabulous, sky high haired, charity raising, hostess with the mostess, dj, queen, entertainer, singer, and comedienne, fashionista...... and my drag inspiration....LADY BUNNY!!!!! May she live long and fuckin prosper more!!!!
And you just never know who you will run into on the streets of New Hope recently....

Now here I and my personal assistant, Buster are a couple weeks ago. Just look how calm and good he is here. I just don't know how this position is going to work out yet,even my social director Ms. Moorecock is better behaved. On our morning walk another morning, Buster heard a distant siren....
And with no manners or qualms, begin howling......
You can dress him up, but can't take him out. Now I'm sure he woke up most of the neighbors, so from here on out, I don't want him to be recognized as the noise maker, so he may have to go out of doors incognito.

New week!! New Happy Monday!!!
Don't remind me please...and you thought I was doing so well without getting any 'Monday-Blues' OR BITCHIN right? Well, after a fairly relaxing three day weekend, it may be a bit harder it get up and go in today, and with the colder weather, and sleeping in my birthday suit, once that cold hits you, it gets you moving I'll tell ya. My uncle used to say, if the toilet seat is cold, it's gonna be a good day. Yeah. So this Monday how's about some things to warm the cockles? After Monday dears, it's all down hill.

I was happy to find myself with a three day weekend, as work has been very busy of late. With over forty hours in, I took Friday off, and as cold as it has gotten I found myself in Doylestown, at one of our hidden gems here. The day started out nice, but got darker as the day went on. I wanted to take some pictures and experiment with finishes, so off I went.If you happened to find yourself traveling through Europe, you probably wouldn’t be that surprised to come across an old castle. However, a castle in the countryside of Philadelphia is another story.
In Doylestown, that’s what you’ll find. In fact, there are three castle-like structures in the town, all built by the interesting and eccentric Henry Chapman Mercer. Of the three buildings that Mercer built, none were as personal as his home, Fonthill Castle. Built between 1908 and 1910 by 10 unskilled craftsmen and one horse, Mercer’s vision was created using hand-mixed concrete and a trial-and-error method that somehow didn’t fail miserably. Mercer lived in the castle from 1910 until his death in 1930. Dying without heirs, he put his home in a trust as a museum, with the condition that his housekeeper and his assistant, Laura and Frank Swain, be allowed to stay in the home until their deaths. After Laura Swain died in 1975, the home was opened as a museum the following year.
Mercer called Fonthill a “Castle for the New World,” and walking up to the home, it’s not hard to imagine it fitting in well amongst the many castles of Europe. The home’s large size and towering concrete walls make this one of the most impressive home exteriors I’ve come across anywhere around these parts. But the impressiveness doesn’t stop outside. In fact, the interior is just as fascinating, if not more so, than the outside of the home. Unfortunately the interior wasn't open the day I went, but it is quite unique.
Needless to say, when I got home from freezing my balls off a bowl of hot apple oatmeal was in order.
And in other news, the lovable eagle pair is back again in Florida. Harriet and M15 have made the nest ready, and she will most likely lay eggs soon. It's already been fasanating to watch both parents ready the nest, and how particular they are with nest keeping. Last year was a treat and highly addictive to watch the whole cycle. I even shed a tear when baby E9 left. To watch the cam live go here.
Sister Rosetta Tharpe was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist and pioneer of mid-20th-century music, where she attained popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with her gospel recordings, characterized by a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and rhythmic accompaniment that was a precursor of rock and roll. Take it ways Sister Rosetta.
