July 3 - Day One of the Pete's Hamburgers 100th Anniversary Event is in the books, and, man, what a crowd! At any given time, the throng numbered between fifty and a hundred people...and this is just for hamburgers from a street vendor (a well-established one, but a street vendor nonetheless). Of course, there were many other things to do and/or buy during the day's celebrations. I was kept busy drawing my cartoon-portrait-style caricatures from 11:00AM to 2:00PM. It was crazy! I was interviewed by the local radio station (by O.F.O.WOMP Norb Aschom), during which I learned that I had been the answer to the daily call-in quiz! I was also filmed by two area television station news crews (not exclusively, of course...just as one of the anniversary events), and was part of at least two podcasts. If I find any of that stuff on-line, I'll post it here somewhere so you can point and laugh. In fact, I'll try to take my own little film or photo series tomorrow, but I can't promise anything. If I'm as busy on Saturday as I was today, I definitely won't have the time. In fact, I should probably go get some extra rest right now. Have a happy Fourth of July everyone! Here's another long-overdue Comic Book Father Character of The Day - Trigon!
