Crazy Eights and Flying to Egypt



"Flight into Egypt"-detail of Mary and Child*
Artist: Michelangelo

The flight into Egypt is a biblical event described in the Gospel of Matthew (2:13-23), in which Joseph fled to Egypt with his wife Mary and infant son Jesus after a visit by Magi because they learn that King Herod intends to kill the infants of that area.

And now, Crazy Eights, lifted from Mrs. Joanna Jenkins, whose blog is very fine indeed.

NO NEED FOR THE GODDAMN LOCAL WEATHER MAN TO TELL YOU THE WEATHER!!!! FRIGGIN OLD PEOPLE STILL MOANING ABOUT JOHNNY CARSON NOT BEING ON ANYMORE!!!!
