How Self Knows It Is Summer

  • It is hot.  As opposed to the fake summer of Scotland, the Netherlands, France, and London (Where it rained more often than not)
  • “The Amazing Spiderman” is out.
  • There are Wednesday night concerts in Stafford Park, two blocks from self’s humble abode.
  • The Los Altos Art & Wine Festival is this weekend.

There is an article in the The Wall Street Journal about a new show at The Barbican in London:  “Designing 007:  Fifty Years of Bond Style”

Perhaps the Bond movies are the first to successfully utilize “product placement.”

Exhibit A:  The Sean Connery Bond wore a Rolex.  And not just any Rolex, mind you. His was a Limited Edition Stealth MK VI ($17,000)
Exhibit B:  James Bond drove an Aston Martin DB5.
Exhibit C:  James Bond used a Walter PPK.

Dear Departed Dad had a James Bond fetish.  He bought himself a gold Walter PPK.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
