'Babar' Creator Dies

Cecile de Brunhoff, who created the adventurous elephant Babar in 1931, has died in Paris, France, at the age of 99. She created Babar to entertain her three sons with stories before bed. Later, her husband, Jean de Brunhoff, who died in 1937, illustrated the enchanting tales, therefore creating characters Celeste, Zephir and the "Old Lady," who takes care of young Babar after his mother dies. Cecile was born on October 16, 1903

Bro's off to a painting gig, so that's something.

Newt's running all over the house, trying to get a look at the garbage man outside... He can't seem to figure which window is best to look out of, so he's peeking through one window for a microsecond, then dashing to an alternate sill, and then repeating the process. He's talking a bit too; I'm getting kitty doppler effects.

Well, I'm off! Until later, dear journal.
