OK, this is President's Day and, honestly, what does that mean to most people?? Unless you're a postal worker, in banking or a kid in school and get the day off, it doesn't really affect the majority of us or create a cause to celebrate. (BTW, I am beginning to feel like a postal employee - I spend a lot of time at the local USPS kiosk and without trying, have become an unpaid guide to many of the elderly people who struggle with the machine.....)
So, I know there aren't a lot of people who are at their desks reading me today, so I can get away with a bit of a side eddy from my regular content. Because I am, at heart, a cheesy sap, I am posting a Herb Alpert vintage music video. I didn't even know they had "music videos" from as far back as 1968!! Yes, I do like Herb Alpert. There. I said it. He's almost so outdated that he's kind of hip in a classic, American retro way. And this isn't entirely unrelated to the main subject of this blog - art. Herb is actually a painter as well, along with many other musicians, such as Tony Bennett, another amazingly talented guy. So, without further ado, here he is. While you're at it, check out the lashes on the girl in the video.....tell me what you think, but they've gotta be fake, because I haven't seen lashes that thick since the Muppet Show or Sesame Street.
