Dragobete/Valentines, Wave 4

*****

Valentine’s Day has come and gone in the west.  Now, the focus is on Dragobete, the Romanian Valentine’s Day which happens February 24th.  Here are a few late valentines and some special cards just for Dragobete, some using my current fascination with the 1979 Spider-Woman cartoon once more.

 

A few miscellaneous Dragobete pieces…

 

And, an assortment of general valentines…

*****

I dug out the old spooks, pumpkins and costumed minxes for the upcoming holiday and put a few “bumper stickers” on display in the Chat Cafe.  Have a look if you are in the mood or in need of some holiday inspiration.

If you find any great festive art you’d like to share, leave word, link or attach it here.  Or, if inspired to make your own, leave word of it being posted in your blog.

Boo.

Video Game Memories in the Chat Cafe Space

Halloween may be gone, but I am not done with Autumn, yet.  No, I am not in any mood to welcome winter.  But, I am at a loss for what decorations to post until I finally get into the Christmas spirit (which usually takes until mid-December for personal reasons).  So, for now, I am leaving a few colorful leaf trails.

AND, as a sort of gift to myself…if you readers like, you can share it, as well–a fond memorial of video games past.  Every now and then, I like to tap into that youthful side that used to like sitting on the bed or floor with a bowl of cereal and a joystick or controller.  It feels wrong doing it at my age.  But, video games are a drug habit I have yet to fully kick.  I am not crazy about the latest versions and all the war business.  I dislike all the new complexities when video games used to be so simple and enjoyed by two people in the same room with no more than an hour–if that–required.  Yet, despite my stubbornness toward change, I have taken a shine to a few over the years and do make small adjustments to my thinking.  But, I still would pass up all the new to spend an hour with someone playing pinball tanks from the Combat cartridge for my old Atari 2600.  Or, Joust.  Or, the arcade version of Warlords (cuz the Atari 2600 version was just plain awful).

So, be sure to check out the new wallpapers.  I know, they’re not as much fun with the Chat Cafe print tacked on.  But, they is what they is, ye kno’?

Shall we play a game?
