Yes, Folks, my baby shoes. I’m going to take them down to the consignment shop and see what I can get for them. I remember the very first time I tied my own shoelaces. My mother was so proud. I was 14.
I also receive cartoons from Shawn S. He’s an airline pilot, and he’s been drawing gags for a long time. I think I posted some of his stuff a year or two ago. Here’s a link
And here’s a sample:
Are you a cartoonist? Feel free to send me some samples.
Many years ago Jeff Kinney sent me some cartoons. He was obviously very good. He had been drawing for the University of MD student newspaper. I called him up and encouraged him. He was absolutely thrilled. Many years later he was giving a talk. I was in the audience, but he didn’t know that. He told the story of how he got started and how thrilled he was when I gave him personal encouragement. He’s great guy, and he deserves all the success that he’s gotten. I’m sure just about everybody knows who he is, but if there are some who don’t, he created Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
First, you should be able to see the Pierre and Delores video from Friday if you go to yesterday’s post.
OK, in my considered opinion, people who have pet snakes are absolutely nuts! My sister sent me this video. If you’re like Frau Grace, don’t watch it. She is so terrified by snakes, I can’t even say the word around her. I can’t even say “The ‘s’ word” . “Danger noodle” is verboten. Anything or any word or any mention of anything having to do with herpetology will send her into screaming paroxysms of absolute terror. If you’re anything like her, don’t click this link.
