happy birthday or, best wishes.

Generally I am tasked with the creation of birthday cards for people around the office.

Some people get specific things. Ben Kammer for example always gets kid drawings that I do with my left hand. Mostly these revolve around his love/hate relationship with his cat.

Today I made an error. I made a birthday card that not ought to have been a birthday card. Jenny Peterson, our Traffic manager, administrative assistant, and Wendy is leaving.

So I made her a card but I accidentally made it a birthday card. In a moment of inspiration, I added "or Best Wishes" to the "Happy Birthday Jenny" and called it good. No one was ever the wiser.

Very slick recovery! I'm sure she had no idea. . .

Hey Cory, thanks very much for the recent posts to my blog. It means a lot to get a "good job" from an artist that I admire. Love your work and I appreciate you stopping by my little blog.

Thanks for the preschool drawings, and the photo of adolescent Kitty.

Often times, she perches at the window and mewls, and I know she's reminiscing about Cory aka Master #2 aka looming shadow that produces food.
