My Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Uncle Godefroy

I was only in New York for about 36 hours but I still found time to head up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and see how they were taking care of a family heirloom:

Me In Armor (400)

Honest to God, I can’t tell you how many times I had to haul that thing to the other side of the rec room just so me and my sisters could play bumper pool.

We got more than a $2000 writeoff when we donated it to the museum, which was great but honestly Mom and Dad were happy enough just to get it out of the house. They offered them the bumper pool table, too, but I guess the Met just doesn’t know real quality when they see it.

I don’t know much about Uncle Godefroy. One story says that he did extremely well as an officer in the French cavalry. Another says that he just rented the suit for the day so he’d look like a big deal in the painting.

Well, whichever…my hat’s off.

  1. Dear Internationally Beloved Pundit,

    when does this site “go live” so that the “share this” icon may be clicked?
    OT: http://www.humorousmaximus.com/steve/canyon.php
    Incomplete archive, but better than nothing.
    And much better than nothing: girlgeniusonline.com for Adventure,
    Romance, MAD SCIENCE(the victorian undies qualify for two if not
    three of these).

    Looking forward to more of your binary musings, and hope to avoid
    Scornful Jedi mind tricks,

    Thomas

  2. Hey, you’re the first poster who ain’t me. You should get a free Andy Ihnatko’s Celestial House of Binary tee shirt. If only I had Andy Ihnatko’s Celestial House of Binary tee shirts…

    Welp, my goal is to have this site finished in time for Macworld Expo in January. If it’s done way before then…great! But I know that I wanna do more than just download a prefab WordPress template and only use the built-in plugins and widgets. I’m just now starting to learn how to build templates from scratch and I’m taking my time.

    Doesn’t help that I have to get two books out the door in the next month or so, o’course…

  3. Dear Internationally Beloved Pundit,

    I shall await until then, hopeful of Ihnatko t-shirts and
    Bourne iPhone vests being available,

    Thomas
