I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

Thanks everyone!  Is it sad that I couldn't wait to finish it so that I could put it up on Craftster?

Nice job!  Any idea what the source for the image was?  (The Mr. Popper's Penguins comparison was a good one).

It makes me think of one of my favorite films, Cory McAbee's "The American Astronaut."  http://www.americanastronaut.com/

OH DEAR!!!!!  Yes, I'm yelling.......  cause I just figured out I really am OLD.  The "astronaut" is really a deep sea diver, the ball on the chain is ballast to keep the diver on the "floor".  The original diving suits had air hoses that went all the way up to the ship, the diver was tethered to the ship by air hose and rope to pull him back.  There were some diving shows in the early days of television that had divers of this type.
