I thought I would share a little known fact about "Things With Wings". I am not sure why I think you need to know this, just felt like it was time for this Mama Winger to post something and since I can't seem to find my camera, some of my new work will have to remain a mystery for now. And now here are some tidbits hardly known to blogland: #1. Our original name was "Things With Wings and Other Things". Some of you may remember that, others will be surprised. For short, we started leaving off "and other things". Just got lazy, I guess, since we do indeed still have "other things" which do not have wings. #2. Years ago there use to be a store here in downtown Iowa City which was named "Things, Things, and Things". It had lots of funky pricey things for your home and clothing, too. When folks spoke of it, they often referred to it as "things". #3. In the 80's I had an art gallery alongside our photography studio where I sold my work along with other artist's and I called it "Things and Stuff". hmmmmm......when I couldn't sleep last night, I laid in bed and thought about all these "THINGS" and wondered if I have had a limited vocabulary all these years, but then I figure "things" covers a lot of stuff/things!!!!!
