I love everything about this cartoon, including how it's drawn and composed. In fact, I'm going to get a print and frame it. The two women getting splashed look suspiciously like Isabella and her sister Franny. Click on the illustration to enlarge and see more detail. Continue reading

Wow, I have not heard that use of fireflies before, Alice. Poor little bugs. But I'm sure I did a bunch in by keeping them in the jar too long. I hope you and the Dude are having a great 4th out at the beach!

Carvel wedding cake--perfect! I just showed the boys a couple old Cookie Puss and Fudgie the Whale commercials, so they know why I talk in that strange Carvel voice sometimes. My niece is getting married this summer in a dress designed and sewn by her mom, I think that's totally cool. I will tell Isy you like the cartoon, Alice!

Sent to me by Matt Conrad, some scans from a Memorial program for Lieut. Michael J. Duddy, who was killed in action in Fismes, France on August 12, 1918. Like my great uncle Second Lieut. John V. Curry, he was from Plains, PA, where his portrait now hangs next to John's in the American Legion Hall. Both paintings were found and restored by my friends Bob Corcoran and his son Bobby. Thanks for sending this info along, Matt. What a terrible loss for his family, community and country. Below, the painting of the Lieut. Duddy hanging in the Plains VFW. Continue reading

From left: Doug Moog, Charlie Epes, Rick Halpern, Nick Bakay, Kingman Bassett, Sr. A photo from Charlie Epes of a 1960s cookout at Kingman Bassett's house in Rose Hill, Canada, across the Peace Bridge from Buffalo. Looks like cheeseburgers on the (typically rusty) BFG. Somebody once told me that at dinner time, you could hear the whirr of the blowers cranking up from house to house along the shore. Thanks, Charlie, for posting this on Facebook and letting me share it here. Continue reading

A snap of my dad's old dog, Smokey, running down a 1930s Buffalo street, back before leash laws. As I recount in The Secret of Math below, Smokey could say "I want one!" according to my father. When I told my kindergarten teacher that maybe some animals could talk, specifically Smokey, I was laughed out of class by her and my classmates. This led me to question some of my father's other claims, for instance, that the secret of math was "a sharp pencil." Now, a YouTube video has shaken me to the core. A dog that can say "I...
