Is it bloggiversary time already? Wow, hard to believe, but this month marks four years of ruminations and revelations. I have no idea how long this thing can continue. Blog frequency must needs grow more erratic, and more and more it will be a matter of new material coming to light or unexpected visitations by the Haunted Mansion Muse that determine when a new post will appear. Yes, I know I said something like that last time, and the time before that, and still we have had about one post per month, but let's face it, a slowdown is inevitably inevitable.
Bloggiversaries are appropriate occasions to pause, to reflect.
They're a time for sharing, for being with family. No, wait, that's Christmas.
Okay, enough with the pausing and reflecting. Don't want to overdo it.
As always, I hate to disappoint readers who came here for some actual Mansionological content rather than narcissistic calendar waving, so I attach a lightweight mini-post on these occasions. I figure the owls will do just fine.
The Owlallueia Chorus
Most of you are aware that there is a pair of owls perched overhead above the graveyard band. Their history? Well, there isn't really any "history" to report. They went straight from Marc Davis's brain down through his pencil and eventually to the AA figures in the ride with little alteration. And they've always been there. And they've never changed in any way. The only thing of note is the usual thing: Marc's creations were a little cartoony, but the final figures are realistic.
