Pete's 100th: Day One

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!
