The first thing I thought of when I saw the theme of the Weekly Photo Challenge was “Serenity Now!”…..just another one of the classic lines from the old ‘Seinfeld’ show. Can you tell I’m a huge fan? lol Here’s the dialogue between George & his father, Frank: F – “Serenity now! Serenity now!” G – “What is that?” F – “The doctor gave me a relaxation cassette. When my blood pressure gets too high, the man on the tape tells me to say ‘serenity now!'” G – “Are you supposed to yell it?” F – “The man on the tape wasn’t specific.” LMBO Kind of like The Honeymooners episode when Ralph was told by his doctor to say “Pins and needles, needles and pins, a happy man is a man that grins” when he found himself getting angry! Another of my favorites by the way. 🙂
Anyway, here’s my photographic interpretation of “Serenity.”
This is an old record (dated September 22, 1903 – Victor Talking Machine Co., Camden, NJ) of Enrico Caruso singing O Sole Mio….you can hear him singing it HERE. The video is not of the record being played on my gramophone but it’s as close as I could get. I wish you could hear it played on the one I have, with all it’s crackling and scratches. It might not sound like it would be, but it’s amazing! “His Master’s Voice” 🙂 EDIT: Serendipity??? I just discovered that today is Caruso’s birthday. Now that’s weird!
These icicles outside my bathroom window kind of remind me of the bars on a jail cell! As much as I complain about the snow….I actually like it…. not the ice chopping and shoveling part though, but Don McLean seems to be having a hard time with winter. Unfortunately, I did not even have to convert this one to black and white….that’s just the kind of day it was. 😦
