Jules Bass passed away

I missed that Jules Bass of Rankin & Bass passed away in October. Arthur Rankin passed in 2014. A big thank you to them both: your work still brings warmth and magic to adults and children. What a legacy.

This video has put together their specials in one place plus the vintage commercials that played with them.

it's a lovely day

Lizzy is a refined traveler, thank you very much.

Disney World 2022 trip: ferry

You can tell it's vacation because I'm up early without complaining. 
We got in the road when we wanted and the Cape May ferry was a nice way to start. Their announcement said, "Thank you from taking a break from the ordinary" and that sums it up nicely.
We were right at the stern so we had a good view even without getting out of the car although we did get out for coffee, a little breakfast, and to look around.
John and the pups are in the truck waiting for me.

The dogs have settled down, the rain has stopped, and our next milestone is the Chesapeake tunnel.

We're in Maryland!
