This week – Supposedly it’s going to be in the 60’s. That’s what they say but they say a lot.

Lot’s of good things happened this week. I got a package full of pens from South Dakota and Polly of Paperbullet was nice enough to feature me on the So and So Show.

Saturday I spent the morning waiting for Mark at Wilson. There’s always strange graffiti at the park. It’ll stay up for a few days and then the truck will come and spray it off with a high pressure hose and some odd powder. That powder makes everything real slippery and squirlley. I enjoy most graff and street art and what have you but nothing good ever show’s up at Wilson. Sure there’s some odd stuff. My favorites so far? “Seahorsin’ Around” with a picture of a seahorse in the bowl and “Neon Gold.” If something was neon and gold, I think it’d be pretty hard to look at. I guess that’s how you’d describe Vegas, neon gold. Here’s the new stuff from Saturday.

Mark showed up and we went to Burnham.

Sunday, I got to meet my nephew for the first time. No pictures of him because he was serious, and a bit jet lagged from the trip around the world. He’s pretty awesome. We took him to the dunes.


It was clear enough you could see the city across the lake.

No new pictures upped this week, everything is in progress. I’m packing a good amount of packages to mail out but that will probably be put off until the family returns to thier respective homes. I took a few extra days off. It’s going to feel like an 8 day weekend.

Raise your glass.


Saturday and Sunday-
Not too shabby
Monday- First day of spring. Shivering.


Another week, another delicious pancake dinner.

Got the fastest haircut in the universe on Saturday. See the gallery for a new drawing based on that. After that we went to Hot Dougs “The Sausage Superstore and Encased Meat Emporium.” There’s always a long line and we waited in front of some loud talking furries. I’m fine with all kinds of fetishes but some people feel the need to to broadcast about thier scene on blast. I like sleeping in but I’m not on the train ranting about it every morning. I know,I know, that’s a whole different ball of twine but you get what I’m aiming at. After the wait we got 2 Jennifer Garner’s, 1 Dirk Diggler, 1 large cheese fries, 2 Coke’s, and some free St. Patty’s Day cookies for $11.75.

That night I watched boxing with the Polish guy. It was supposed to be the fight to clear up all the confusion in the heavyweight division. It ended up a draw. Sunday I went to Indiana. Drove down Lake Shore, turned at the World’s Fair statue, then took Stony Island to the Skyway.

the worlds fair?

This creepster was lurking at my Mother-in-law’s.


Don Pendleton’s clothing site is up, so give it a look. I have some buttons available. Email me your address and I’ll put together something fun for you. Allison is on Spring Break. Hopefully I’ll be spending Saturday at Burnham.
