Lit from Within: Solomon Grundy

Solomon Grundy

 Hello, Fireflies!

Time for another Super Heroes/Villains post!  I'm going murky and zombie today with some stamping!

To get the story I wanted to tell, I had to choose a lot of different images.

The villain Solomon Grundy's real name is Cyrus Gold.  He dies, and when he is reanimated, all he can remember is that he was born on a Monday.  There is an old English nursery rhyme about a man named Solomon Grundy, who was born on a Monday, and so the moniker stuck:

Solomon Grundy,
Born on a Monday,
Christened on Tuesday,
Married on Wednesday,
Took ill on Thursday,
Grew worse on Friday,
Died on Saturday,
Buried on Sunday.
That was the end,
Of Solomon Grundy.

The background is a sponge mix between Essie Fall In Line and Essie Cashmere Bathrobe, and the stamping is Mundo de Unas Blue Grey.

I only have 5 fingers, so I consolidated a few of the days.  On my thumb, the 'baby' and footprint are for 'Born on a Monday'; the pointer is a cross for 'Christened on Tuesday'; the middle finger has wedding bells for 'Married on Wednesday'; the syringe is supposed to represent him taking 'Ill on Thursday' and growing 'worse on Friday'; and the Grim Reaper represents his death and burial on Saturday and Sunday.

That is both the end of this mani, and Solomon Grundy!

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
