Links ‘n’ Patties

Here’s a link to a mirthful essay by “Crazy Aunt Purl” on the subject of rogue waves (scroll up after linking):


And not just rogue waves, but ROGUE WAVES!!!!!

“This is all very fine,” you say, looking down through your pince-nez. “Here are the links as promised in the Post Title. Wonderful. But, where, pray tell, are the patties? Hm?”

I’m glad you asked. Here is a daguerreotype of the great Ella Fitzgerald, “The First Lady of Song,” gazing dreamily at the appartion of a gigantic Salmon Patty.

Finally, to satisfy the grammatical demand of the post title, let’s make that TWO patties with this movie still: it’s the stirring climax from The Miracle Worker (1962), starring Patty Duke who plays both parts!
