poignant post-its

This evening I ran across a morbid reminder of the departed Cupy family. Whoever cruelly disposed of the Cupy family while I was in the hospital stacked up the little Post-it notes Lola had attached to them, reading "Cupy", "Cupy Family" (with little flowers drawn all around), "Cupy Jr.", and so on, and left those behind in a corner of the sideboard. It reminded me of the horrible artifacts the Nazis saved, the shorn-off hair and gold fillings.

Why would someone throw away Cupy and his family but preserve the labels? In fear of bringing sentimental Lola to tears, I did not mention this grisly find.

Actually, Cupy is alive and well and running a coffee shop in Virginia, although he had to change his name slightly. Here's photographic proof.

I break out laughing everytime I pass Cuppy's Cafe. No one understands why.

I wish I could take Lola there! Thank you so much, Marketeer!

I was holding on to that photo in case there was another photo contest, but this seemed like a good time to use it.

We may have another photo contest... the proprietorship here is kind of flaky... and a Cupy theme is a great one for an entry.
