if Madame Vastra and Jenny are Holmes and Watson, does that make Strax Mrs. Hudson?
I want to know that I’m not alone in this…
Every single day
every second of my waking life and every moment of my dreaming one
Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were ambushed and killed on May 23, 1934 on a rural road in Bienville Parish, Louisiana.
Bonnie and Clyde had wished to be buried side by side, but the Parker family would not allow it. Mrs. Parker had wanted to grant her daughter’s final wish, which was to be brought home, but the mobs surrounding the Parker house made that impossible.Over 20,000 people turned out for Bonnie Parker’s funeral, making it difficult for her family to reach the grave site.
Bonnie Parker’s grave, is inscribed with: As the flowers are all made sweeter by the sunshine and the dew, so this old world is made brighter by the lives of folks like you.
Barrow’s private funeral was held at sunset on Friday, May 25, in the funeral home chapel. He was buried in Western Heights Cemetery in Dallas, next to his brother, Marvin. They share a single granite marker with their names on it and a four-word epitaph previously selected by Clyde: “Gone but not forgotten.”
“My personal style? Uh, that’s kind of hard, because it—it kind of runs the gamut. I just like, uh, simplicity. But, you know, being unique, I’m always interested in things that are slightly left of center. Not predictable, but still pretty accessible.”
Some men seem to be born the verso, the reverse, the wrong side. They are Pollux, Patroclus, Nisus, Eudamidas, Hephaestion, Pechméja. They can live only on condition of leaning on someone else; their name is a sequel and can only be written preceded by the conjunction and; their existence is not their own; it is the other side of a destiny that is not theirs. Grantaire was one of these men. He was the wrong side of Enjolras.
- Victor Hugo, Les Misérables (translated by Julie Rose)
I couldn’t resist doing another ambigram for these two…
“There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.”
