The attack of the killer hand….

My wonderful and very funny Aunt Johanna sent me a “cheer-up gift” as my hand heals, complete with a note. Scared the crap out of Beth when she got home from school…..


There’s a back story here: years and years ago, we sent this to her and my late uncle, James Ward, as a gag gift. ¬†We had been in the practice for years of trading goofy gifts, and this had been at their house in Old Town, one of Chicago’s venerable old urban districts, for years. I was delighted to receive it, until it started moving around the house mysteriously. Reminds me of that great old 1946 sci-fi classic, “The Beast With Five Fingers”, starring none other than Peter Lorre…..


This thing is freaking me out a little.....
