"Hey Mr. Martini!! How 'bout some Wine?"

     Next up, from Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life," the film's female lead, Mary Bailey, wonderfully played by Donna Reed.

     This Mary I chose to draw is from the scene where she and George are presenting the Martini family the keys to their new house in Bailey Park. Mary gives them bread, so their house will never know hunger. Salt, so their life will always have flavor. And wine, so joy and prosperity may reign forever.

Sweet stuff.

     I didn't get any of this when I bought my first home... just a bunch of paper work. I remember asking the lady at the Mortgage Office, "Where's my SALT, woman?!?"
