I am particularly proud of this walrus. It flowed out of my pen without any mistakes. I play a kind of game where I try to draw perfectly in ink only. It usually doesn’t work out so well. The joke may not be the best but the face has such charm.


Sorry, I haven’t been blogging lately. Not here, at least.

I’ve started a blog called Thank you, Rita! (thankyourita.wordpress.com)

It’s a daily record of the most generous person I know, my friend and co-worker, Rita DeMontis. I’ve seen her share on a daily basis for over two decades.

Rita gives. She’s a giver. Any of my co-workers would agree. Yet, I’m not trying to encourage her. I hope no one feels I’ve started this blog to get more snacks.

It’s about generosity. There are lessons to learn here. I know I could give more.

Also, I see it as an interesting event going on around me, one I feel the need to record.

And, it’s quick. I do the whole blog with my iPhone. It un-literally takes no time at all.

It’s fun, too. Looking back over the pictures, I have noticed a kind of nostalgia for past snacks. Fond memories of last month’s lemon pound cake.
