Tim keeps on slipping, slipping into the future

 I heard "Fly Like an Eagle," by the Steve Miller Band today. It was released in 1976 which coincidently was when I was released from high school. So time does keep slipping, slipping into the future. I did two versions of this design. One had a "Time keeps on slipping, slipping past into the future." I figured that was different enough to slip by the Intellectual Property Police. 

We'll see. 

I toyed with changing it to Tim keeps on slipping, slipping into the future, but I figured the market was pretty narrow for that one. Besides, since my middle initial is E, I fancy my name is Time sometimes.

I did produce this one for the Tim's in the world:

If you are a Monty Python fan (and you probably shouldn't be reading my blog if you aren't), you'll probably recognize this as a line the Enchanter Tim said in Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail.  John Cleese played the part and warned King Arthur about the vicious Rabbit of Caerbannog that had a nasty tendency to bite knights heads off.

I didn't make the connection when I had Artie create this design with a rabbit running with scissors. But it dawned on me as I was putting this together that Tim the Enchanter was associated with a killer rabbit. Coincidence? I think not.

But then again, I also created this design today:

Other than Goo-Goo-Ga-Joob, I can't think of how it relates to time slipping into the future, Tim the Enchanter or a rabbit running with scissors. 

Come to think of it I was listening to the Beatles channel on Sirius in the car, too. That would help explain this design, too:

Hopefully you are a Beatles fan and understand these last two references. If not, the Long and Winding Toad I created a few days ago must really confuse you.

Oh well...
