Jove Julia

Les and I returned from Chicago where we had our portraits drawn by our 7-year-old niece, Julia. After seeing her dark Russian interpretation of my profile (see the Raskolnikov rings under my eyes?), I glanced at her signature and began to explain that Jove was the Roman god of love*, until I realized that her spelling was just a beautiful mistake.

Les got a caterpillar next to the correct spelling of Jule's sign off.

*Jove or Jupiter is the god of the sky. Julia's confused typo, caused by staring at my daringly handsome face, indirectly led me to confuse her even more . . . ah, love.
