Tax Time again ~ groan!

It's that time of year again ~ gathering all those receipts for the IRS ~ I am finally at the point where I can drop them off at my accountant ~ woohoo!! The guy below may be the one responsible for all of this joy ~ Andrew Mellon, the Secretary of the Treasury, laying the cornerstone of the IRS building in 1929. A rather cryptic photo ~ I wonder if the photographer intended the end result to have such a creepy effect? Can you imagine that guy showing up at your door to audit you?! Yikes!

He looks a bit like Boris Karloff! Fitting, huh? Like someone from a horror movie.
