The Pan-Holiday Window, The Pez Case, Wade Rouse at 7 pm Today

Someone's going to have to explain to me how to get a good window of an outside display window. How did Lyle Oberwise do it? Have you ever looked at Milwaukee at Mid Century? It's just beautiful. The Milwaukee County Historical Society has promised us they are working on a second collection of his photographs.

So you can sort of get the goofy feel for our pan-celebration of Wade Rouse's It's All Relative. Winkie's is cosponsoring the event; we got all our holiday swag there. They sure do a good job with their Facebook connections. Lots of comments on Packer-iana. More on this in a separate post.

One last thing about Wade's event tonight (Tuesday, 2/8, 7 pm). It inspired me to put my Pez collection in the curio case for a while. Of course everyone sees Pez all over the place, but there are certainly some lines that they stopped offering and I have some rarities, like the outfits, the European lines (surprisingly, Tom and Jerry), General Mills promotional Pez, and Japanese vending machine Pez brought back by my niece and nephew.

And with all this chatter, you might want to know if Mr. Rouse is speaking in your town. You may have noticed that I love a tour schedule. Here's the one for It's All Relative:

I just learned by rereading Mr. Rouse's website that he is editing an anthology for fall called I'm Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship. He's got some pretty great (funnily great) people scheduled to contribute. Ah, something new to look forward to.
