"yet I tell you, from the sad knowledge of my older experience, that to every one of you a day will most likely come when sunshine, hope, presents and pleasure will be worth nothing to you in comparison with the unattainable gift of your mother's kiss." (Christina Rossetti, "Speaking Likenesses," 1873)

While visiting my parents in Florida this spring, I was delighted to see this sign in the little subdivision where they rent a house for the winter.
I never see Jasper Dash signs up here in Pittsburgh, only that sinister villain, Bobby Spandrel.
It was a welcome relief to see that wholesome, hearty boy technonaut displaying such excellent form on a sign.
