On this Memorial Day as I remember all those who have passed, and who I miss dearly...like my first born son, my dad, my grandparents, my mother-in-law and many, many others...I thought they'd appreciate a little cartoon humor about how some
experience impatience waiting in line during the Memorial Day picnic.

The National Cartoonists Society 65th Annual Reuben Awards are taking place in Boston from May 27-29, 2011...and I cannot tell you how much I hate missing this event. Some of my very dearest friends are folks I have met through this organization. I can honestly say, spending a weekend with a hotel full of cartoonists is good medicine! From top to bottom they are some of the most genuine, nice, talented and funniest people I have ever encountered! I miss being with all my friends but am happy they are together sharing in the laughs and the beer! I cannot wait until I can join them again...hopefully next year! Have a great weekend all my NCS friends. Oh, and a special shout out to those special NCS Scatpackers!

I was at the gym earlier today and I saw a local TV celebrity there working out at the same time.
I respected his privacy and left him alone.__But that doesn't mean he didn't deserve to be in his own cartoon.
I am just poking fun...I'm sure he's very nice.

I had a great time going to numerous High School Graduation parties this weekend. The food and goodies at these parties is
just awesome! Even my best attempts at self-control and self-discipline are completely worthless...by the time I leave the last Graduation party of the day I am totally and utterly bloated.__Fortunately I have the week to get things back under control...until it all starts over again next weekend :-)

I always enjoyed these two characters, ESTER B. SAGGIN & BLAZE, that I created years ago and sold on a number of greeting card designs. Ester's breast and Blaze's ears were always getting them into trouble...of sorts__(What's wrong with me?). I'll see if I can't did up a few of these designs to share.

I've been doing more and more 'Retirement-Related' commissioned pieces. They're typically given as
as a gift from either an individual or collectively from office co-workers. They're very personalized to
those receiving them (which is why they don't always make sense to anyone else looking at them),
and I have to say they're a lot of fun to create, and the feedback is always rewarding.__The attached
is a recent example of such a piece.
