29 Faces: Days 12 - 17, Parade of the Baby Elements

Catching up (again)

OK I've gotten way behind with these 29 faces and will attempt to catch up here - I've actually been working all along but haven't found the time to post.

These six faces were part of my Nibblefest entry, our theme for May was "Earth, Air, Fire, and Water."

 It’s nighttime, and you know what that means!  Well in case you don’t, it’s when Earth, Air, Fire, and Water go on parade. and if you’re lucky you just might see them march by!   This is a sweet little scene from happier days when the elements used to play nicely together.

Here comes Earth (leading the parade on his unicycle) followed closely by Air and Fire, who was even then keeping a safe distance from Baby Water (so cute in diapers he always had a hard time staying dry)!   This was long before Water gave himself that pretentious title,  “Universal Solvent” and everything went to hell in a handbasket.

And what’s a parade without an audience?  I do believe that’s Lunchbox I see, trundling up the hill to watch the show.  Good ol' Lunchbox!
