Story of My Life (Reader’s Digest Version)

Oh me, oh my, inspiration’s run dry!

Perhaps I need a little shut eye…

Cartooning’s a process like any other,

(Do it right and you’ll impress your mother.)

Once you’re hooked you’ll be in deep,

So consider carefully before you leap!

      Thanks, my dear! The current story of my life seems to be that I owe you an email. And I look forward to writing you back soon because like my mom, you’re one of the few people who regularly keeps in touch. xox – Joana

    In order of the cartoons:
    Get the lead out (or “erase” against time
    One good turn deserves another
    Look before you leap

      Brilliant as always, Lewis! (I especially like the “erase” against time pun.:-) When did you get so punny? I remember your puns from my MSO days – a lifetime ago – so maybe you were just born punny? 😉 Joana
