Puttin' On the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super Duper

Thanks to Irving Berlin for the great lyrics and can't you just hear Fred Astaire singing this about our groom?

I've made some nice progress on the Groom in the last few days. There hasn't been much to show you as the progress was not especially exciting. I was glad to be finished with the beiges and greens in the coat and move on to something a little more fun like the pocket watch and the cane head.

I think tonight I'll work on the tombstone and watch some television I DVRd earlier in the week. Maybe it will be the PBS version of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. Last week I watched on PBS an interesting documentary on the modern-day Orient Express which was narrated by David Suchet who plays Hercule Poirot. The program followed him on his journey from London to Istanbul aboard the famous train. What an incredible (and incredibly expensive!) trip that was! It was and still is the height of luxury travel. It was a great lead-in to Murder on the Orient Express.
