I had a Big Birthday recently and my sweet wife asked some friends to send their regards. I received twenty pounds of revisited memories and charming drawings from the finest folks on earth in the form of an enormous memory album. It’s the gift of a lifetime, I told her. Every page makes me smile.
I hope Patrick McDonnell won’t mind me showing you his contribution. I’ll keep a fine print of it in the album, but I have a wall in my studio begging for the original.
