The Birds: A Peeps Show

The Birds... The photo on the left is an older Peeps Show. The one below was submitted this year to the Washington Post Contest. It's #26. To see all the fabulous Peeps Shows, go to the  Washington Post Slide ShowThe Birds is #26:

The one on the right (sorry for the fuzzy photo) was submitted by Jill Goebel of Alexandria and spotlights an unsuspecting Bunny Hedren in her diorama titled "Alfred Hitchcock Presents 'The Peeps.'"
Goebel writes: "She sits on the bench, tense although she doesn't quite know why. Maybe a cigarette will calm her nerves. Were those wings? Or just the wind?"

In the background is the School House from the Hitchcock movie "The Birds" filmed in Bodega and Bodega Bay. I actually wrote and produced three corporate mystery events (Murder on the Menu) for Ford Motor Company that were held at the School House when it was an event space. It's a fabulous old building.

So here in time for Easter are three of my favorite things: Peeps and The Birds and Bodega Bay!
