You remember Fred, don't you? Or, if it's your first time here, I hope you'll go back to meet him. Apparently Fred makes quite a few folks smile. One person asked to see his wings. Another stated that she hoped to run across Fred again.
As part of a project for a Yahoo group, Fred agreed to help me pass out a bit of advice. I had to post this advice in a public place, photograph, and then leave it there.
Well, Fred and I put our heads together and agreed on a few things:
- We had to be VERY VERY CAREFUL where to leave this advice, 'cause you see the folks in the Washington, D.C. area, are mighty sensitive to abandoned packages and such. So, no Metro stations, public monuments, etc. Neither Fred nor I wished to find ourselves in the pokey. DH kindly pointed out that he didn't wish to lose his security clearance in the name of art.
- Fred and I also agreed that these folks around here need to lighten up a bit as they take themselves mighty seriously. So, a good bit of light heated fun should be highly encouraged.
- I found this bit of advice in this book by Patti Digh, and we deemed it "perfect!" Fred suggested that I attach his image to a jar of bubbles so that folks could put the advice into effect immediately. He even waived his modeling fees.
- DH agreed to transport Fred and I to a nearby public eatery early in the morning so we could complete our covert operation. A few folks milled about, but no one seemed to pay much attention to us. Within a few moments, we whispered, "Mission Accomplished!"
- Fred has really taken to this advice bit, so I'm thinking he'll show up here on a regular basis, ready to dispense his wit and wisdom. He pointed out that I really do need to honor our reader's request to see his wings, and so I shall!
Oh, and if you want your own Fred, he can be found at Ikea, for a very reasonable price!
