Beau Jest

Having sprung forward in March, it's that time of the year, in Lake County, to fall back. Likewise in blogging, when pageview numbers are down, it is not unwise to have something tried-and-true to fall back on. This may explain why the supercentenarians at the MchenryCountyBlog have posted a titillating story about some hankypanky goings-on over at the Will County board:
A former female County Board member is trying to obtain compromising photos of herself taken by a former flame. She thinks he may have sent the photos to another bow.
If You Have an Affair on the County Board, Don’t Let Him Take Intimate Pictures
It is unknown who or, more precisely, what kind of object the unspecified bow is ...
Bow \Bow\ (bou), n.
1: a knot with two loops and loose ends; used to tie shoelaces
2: a slightly curved piece of resilient wood with taut horsehair strands, used in playing certain stringed instrument
3: front part of a vessel or aircraft
4: curved piece of resilient wood with taut cord to propel arrows
5: something curved in shape
6: bending the head or body or knee as a sign of reverence or submission or shame
7: an appearance by actors or performers at the end of the concert or play in order to acknowledge the applause of the audience
8: a decorative interlacing of ribbons
Late onset dementia is a terrible crippling malady, even for an Internet blogger. Happily, your LakeCountyEye has been assured that this Bow in question is a heartbreaker, from back-in-the-day:

Clara Bow

I made the correction...even before I read this humorous article.

hi Cal,

Clara Bow's loss, to be sure.
