Me and Palin are like that!

Cheryl Kirk wrote me . . "You're being paired with Sarah Palin or something close to it...." and forwarded me the following email from Amazon.  Apparently, my early years, growing up in Wasilla, have bonded me and Palin in ways we are only now starting to discover.

If You Put Lipstick On A Pig---You Will Have A Beautiful Pig
Penelope Dyan

Price: $11.95

Product Description
Get involved in politics with your child in an absolutely fun way! Based on a political comment by one running for office (that your child has more than likely heard) Dyan sets out to both teach your child and amuse. The other words used in this book are some of the very same words taught in the Penny Mouse Early Reader Series, taken from and based upon the first primary reading list, and this book is not only fun, it is relevant and also purposeful . So smile and laugh and have some fun with this book, and please talk to your child and interact with your child, because this is all a part of the intended purpose of this book! A former K-12 teacher, published in 'The Kindergartner,' as well as in 'Instructor Magazine' and in 'Humpty Dumpty' children's magazine, and an award winning author, Penelope Dyan has once again put her expertise, love and knowledge of children to work; and this book is one story of one election you and your child do not want to miss!

  In honor of the comparison, here's an old YSL strip addressing why Palin and I don't look more alike.

Ohio Travel Dairy: Day 2

On the death march through the United States, our only nourishment was this butter dipped hot dog.
I would do it all again.  It truly is the perfect food.   

Silent City issue three is out!

If you have a spare moment, check out Silent City magazine's myspace page for a pdf of the latest issue and the final verison of the cover, which is quasimodo standing astride one of the most recognizable buildings in  Nebraska, the name of which escapes me (but the image never will).

New Listings on Etsy! Christmas Cards and T-Shirts!

I've uploaded a few new listings to Etsy, namely packs of christmas cards and the remaining limited edition "King Cabbage" t-shirts.  I have the cards in two flavors, "Merry Christmas" or the more European "Happy Christmas".  The cards are in packs of 5 with envelopes and are blank on the inside, so you can write your own impressive Christmas wishes (or threats).

The t-shirts come in S-XL and are heavy weight cotton t-shirts.  The sizes have been spot on for people, not too small or too large.   They are nicely rolled and tied with a red ribbon, for that special touch.
