Get your magical key to happiness

Yes, yes, of course,
must pick it up.

At Evelyn’s house, right?
Evelyn –? Help me with the last name, will you?

And she’s got the key to happiness – you’re sure?
Absolutely, positively?

Well in that case I’ll rush over there.
Bontemps, you said?

The blue house up above,
with white awnings. Right.

    I love this, James! it’s marvellous just what is stimulated by random crossings. Reminds me of the line in Tiny Tim’s song “close your cover before striking” which was obviously inspired by the caution on a matchbook, God, must have been back in the 70s.:-)

    What’s great is that you find so many things that inspire you to create…I wish I could do that!

  3. Love this…I’m on my way to Evelyn’s right now…

  4. Tell me about the outcome of your visit…
