Steadfast Plastic Soldier

cards 005

A sure sign of spring:  the bathroom window, open.  There’s no vent in the bathroom, so it is always VERY nice to get fresh air in there after 4-5 months or more of it being shut tight. 

You can’t quite see, but this little guy is actually stuck behind the window plastic, which I peeled off at the bottom, but haven’t quite removed.  He looks very Boy in the Bubble that way.

The window used to stay open by itself, but like everything else in this house, fell victim to entropy – the eventual decay of everything – and now requires assistance to keep itself open.  When the weather turns nice, I will find an appropriately strong stick or two to wedge underneath and the tub mentschie will be free once more.


  1. I have lots of scrap wood and a jigsaw. Decide what size you need, come over, and we'll cut it. I even have shellac that will waterproof it for you.

  2. What? You disapprove of the charm of a vaguely y-shaped stick from a tree of unknown provenance?

  3. Actually, that does sound charming. Carry on :)
