Forehead Butt Society: Harper Lee & Gregory Peck (and a bit of Norah Kathryn)



Yes, it is that time again for another inductorereener into the Forehead Butt Society!

It is my wonderful and honored pleasure to inductoredee Harper Lee - she of the double forehead butt, even thought I am the Single Forehead Butter. Yes, our beautiful Harper Lee has "The Sign" of all things creative and wonderful and beautiful! And, to have a two-fer forehead butter day, from the wonderful and lovely author (look at her face, that is a face I'd like to know the person behind, to have tea with and some crisp thin cookies and talk about just any old thing while rocking on the porch) -of To Kill A Mockingbird - Scout's daddy - Gregory Peck - also has a forehead butt! A single like me. This is a fine day for us Forehead Butters, those of us with The Sign of creative everything!

So, down with Botox! Let's tell the stories of our lives through our expressive faces, let's keep the signs of love and anger and grief and wonder and beauty and past and present and up and down and all around. . .Folks, if you don't think Harper Lee is beautiful and that her face tells stories of her life and of other's lives witnessed, then go ahead and get your danged botox, as for me, I hope I one day have a Harper Lee face. Here's to language, and books, and good good stories, and beautiful faces . . .

and also, below, a couple more braggy photos of the cute Norah Kathryn - Little Boop, who in the yawning photo seems to have a little teeny sort of kind of forehead butt ' laughing:

This is a very timely moment to induct Harper Lee into your Forehead Butt Society, since her book is (once again) making headlines here in Toronto. Parents are attempting to have it banned from one of our highschools citing its use of the "n..." word.

Last year parents were successful in having the book removed from the reading list in the city of Brampton, although the highschool there kept the book in the school library.

Small minded world we live in isn't it.

I have enoug butt butt, I don't need one up there too. No cat yet. I am not hopeful he will be returning...

Kathryn, I would like to have that photo of Harper Lee framed and hanging over my work space. She looks feisty enough to inspire me when the going gets tough.

If I may, I would like to offer a word of encouragement to Diane. Often, when cats disappear, they've simply gotten a better offer. Perhaps someone on your street (or four blocks away) bought your cat's hard luck story ("Nobody feeds me. I'm so hungry.") and took her(him?) in. I suspect that your cat is even now stretched out on a white satin pillow, being spoon-fed Fancy Feast from a silver spoon.

Cats are beautiful, but they are fickle.

Little Boop is adorable!

I am very anti-Botox. I was in line at the grocery store and saw Fergie on the cover of US magazine...she looks odd. I don't know if it's Botox or what but I was thinking, why can't we just enjoy people looking natural? Why do people have to think plastic is attractive and wrinkles are unattractive?

Dang Sandra - sounds like some husbands *LAUGHING!!!*

More great inductees. I've got one for you. I'll shoot you an email. Harper Lee is beautiful.

Barbara said...

To Kill A Mockingbird...one of my alltime favorite books. So sad she never wrote another novel. And Gregory Peck! Perfection. Forehead butt and all.

B.J. Anderson said...

Still no forehead butt. :( But I totally agree with the no botox thing. Love those brag pics! What a sweet baby.

Char said...

There is no finer literature than "To Kill a Mockingbird". It has remained my lifetime favorite. What a shame if it is banned.

Judith Mercado said...

Harper Lee - gorgeous. As for me, every year makes its contribution toward a gridwork of lines. I don't now nor do I plan to ... run for office ... nah ... I don't do botox. Heck, I don't even color my hair.

Patience-please said...

thud
[I can't comment because I sort of fainted when I saw Gregory Peck. But before I fainted I smiled at Norah Kathryn first. And then I smiled deep at Harper Lee. You already know how I feel about TKaM!]

Debra said...

Love Harper Lee. She grew up in the same small Alabama town my Dad grew up in, Monroeville, Alabama.

I am still perplexed by the thought that Hollywood thinks botox is a good thing. Who likes "frozen" faces?

A Cuban In London said...

I'm with you all the way! Down with Botox! I love my wrinkles (oh, yes, they are starting to appear, I frown a lot, unconsciously, mind). Lovely, little, cute baby. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Norah is a doll!

Deb Shucka said...

I love that you found Harper this way. And Gregory, oh Gregory - I do love that man. Baby Norah just gets cuter and cuter!
