Some Facebook friends posted examples of western art in the wake of the moving testimony by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

I followed suit with one of my favorites: Judith and her maidservant slaying Holofernes.

I thought I would share it here as well.

  1. I laughed out loud as soon as I saw this pertinent work of art…then I called for my dear Wife Cindy to come and take a look at it …She laughed too… but I didn’t like the look on her face?

    I’m about to load the dishwasher…for insurance?…I don’t know if it’s proper form to capitalize Wife…but after 36 years of absolutely delightful marriage…I’ve learned to watch my… mouth!…and the look on my face!…She might be looking over my shoulder at me the way these Women were looking at this dude?…just before they ended him?…I’m afraid to check….LOL…but not too loud.
