Rude George

No real post tonight.  We were out late visiting with CarlaB, David and Xander.

Xander is a truly remarkable kid.  Apparently he spent his allowance money on a couple of rubber masks of historical figures: George Washington, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.  All of the masks are sort of cut out at the jowls so you can see the wearer's lower lip and jaw.

Anyway, Xander has different characters he portrays with each mask, including a version of George Washington known as "Rude George", and it is seriously one of the funniest things I've ever seen.  At 5, I'm not sure Xander knows that he's created a bit of oddness fit for David Lynch at his Twin Peaksiest, but its an impressive transformation.

Got a lot of his mother in him, that kid.

I'm posting this in high hopes we can get some photos of Rude George soon from CarlaB and Xander.
