I have a solution for the Trump situation. Can him. No not as in “You’re Fired”. Pickle him. That’s right preserve. Hang with me, you’ll see. Label the front of the jar 2017 with an expiration date of NEVER. On the back list the ingredients lest they be forgotten. Lots of vinegar. Equal handfuls of misogyny, arrogance, vitriol, vulgarity, hate, incompetence, stupidity, lies, bluster and distrust. 3 tablespoons each yellow dye #5 and orange dye #3 and 1 teaspoon red dye #2. Remove the jar to a shelf, deep in a dark basement between the haricot vert green beans and Shishito peppers. Check every so often to make sure the jar seal hasn’t been broken. Leave the jar there for a long time. All the while remembering this failed experiment vowing never repeat it. Ever. Then let’s all work toward perfecting the next presidential recipe and make it savory with a pinch of sweet.

News Flash: During a routine physical exam, x-rays reveal a startling finding about Donald Trump.
Paul Bunyan, a giant lumberjack in American folklore finds himself in my growing series of images for “Myths, Fables and Fantastical Tales”. The subject of North American tall tales, Bunyan, accompanied by Babe the Blue Ox apparently made his debut in a 1916 promo piece for the Red River Lumber Company and became a legend of oral story telling. He’s been covered by Disney, the theatre and numerous statues.
Here’s another one to add to my series, “Myths, Fables and Fantastical Tales”.
Since Johnny Appleseed (aka John Chapman) was a real person, he will fit under Fantastical Tales. He was born in 1774 and became a legend while still alive. It is said he introduced apples to Pennsylvania, Ontario (Canada), Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and West Virginia. He was a missionary, gardener and orchardist. One can visit the historical site of the Johnny Appleseed Museum in Ohio. Not sure but perhaps he coined the phrase, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”.
