With the sun peeking through the clouds on Sunday the ocean looked silver
I LOVE that the 2017 US Postal Service celebrates Ezra Jack Keats classic picture book, The Snowy Day (1962), on a forever stamp. What a great addition to a long line of children’s picture books, characters, authors and illustrators that have been commemorated on U.S. postage stamps. Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee takes suggestions…Ok, everyone, please let them know VIRGINIA LEE BURTON is a must. Burton received a Caldecott Medal as did Keats. Katy and the Big Snow would make a great winter stamp. It’s easy to envision a plethora of sheets celebrating Burton: vehicles, scenes, beloved characters, her design and typesetting. Burton should be a Google doodle, too. Let’s let the Google doodlers know~ firstname.lastname@example.org #VirginiaLeeBurton
A horizon vista on an early gray December morning, a challenge for the naked eye with just a phone camera and binoculars. In the photo, the tugboat is approaching the direction of Thacher Island. I couldn’t identify the Tugboat and container ship (if that’s what it was); maybe a GMG reader will help.
