Winter Carnival 2005

This is the button of the 2005 Winter Carnival in Saranac Lake, NY. Garry Trudeau has designed the buttons for quite a while now and each year they look very nice. The background is that bureau that I bought 2 weeks ago which has polished up pretty well but still looks quite rustic. I wish all the dents and scratches in my hide made me look more interesting, like it does on this bureau--on me it just looks old!

Thanks for the visit today. The whitewater rafting thing? Gah...It's a shame, too, because I love being on the water. Maybe another time.

It's such a small world. I was in your town today for a couple of hours killing time at Lazy Daze. I look forward to reading more here.

Great button especially the nose on that guy.

Michele sent me, hope you're having a great weekend.

While I don't know for sure, from the comments above it seems like some folks aren't familiar with Trudeau. He's the fellow that draws the comic strip Doonesbury. I never considered that the heritage wasn't obvious from the character Zonker on the button. My bad.

Party on. Michele sent me.

Is Zonker holding a beer mug or a sugar dispenser?

Michele sent me.

Hiya!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I thought I'd swing by and check yours out quickly. Great button! But who's Gary Trudeau? (Forgive me, I'm Australian.) :o)

And cute as the proverbial button, Yaeli. Alas, too young and far away though. LOL

Gary Trudeau is a cartoonist who inks Doonesbury which is a comic strip that originally lampooned Yale University when Trudeau was a student there, and later became a very political cartoon and often appears on the editorial page of newspapers not the cartoon page. He's mellowed a bit in his middle age though.

Hey Kenju. I'd guess that it's a beer mug though Zonker's drug of choice would be pot--unless he too has changed over the years.

Utenzi--Michele did not send me :) I just had to have a little fun there. I felt a little left out with all the Michele references.

Trudeau & I have a love/hate relationship. Sometimes I really like what he does & other times it flies right over my head (but only when I'm a blonde).
