Happy Hump Day from actor Claybourne Elder (via) and also from your friends here at MNPP -- i.e. me and me alone -- who are now back from vacation after several days off. With a vengeance! Okay that is definitely over-stating it. I usually take some time to get back up to my full speed, which is usually everybody else's half-speed. "With a middling vengeance," doesn't have the same ring though. Anyway I know some favorite MNPP readers who were weirded out the last time I posted photographs of Claybourne here because they "know him" and to that I say -- where's the proof? I'm still waiting for that singing telegram proof a knock knock knockin' at my door, babes. Oh wait, we're still in a pandemic aren't we? I suppose the singing telegram business has really been hit the hardest in the past three years. Pour one out for the singing telegrams, folks.
