New skunks

My son Brady is home from his two-year jaunt in Wellington, New Zealand, and has created a few new "skunks" to use as blog headers*. I'll get them worked in as I have time, but here they are as stand-alones.

How wonderful that you and Joyce Valenza have such talented offspring whose work can enhance your web 2.0 presence! I need to get one of my kids fired up, but it will be hard to match this.

Two years since Brady left, and then he's back in a blink of an eye? It seems like a few months ago...really. I clearly remember the picture of him in the driveway in your blog, and my memory doesn't stretch back more than a few months....really. As for his new skunk illustrations, well, to paraphrase Loudon Wainwright, they're "stinking to high heaven" with a fresh, glad-to-be-back-home-with-Dad-and-glad-to-be-back-in-the-USA aroma. It stinks good (and bodes well). And yes, cut him a generous check.

Thanks, Sandra and Janet. I'll share your comments with Brady!


Hi Cathy Jo,

Does room and board count as payment?


Hi Keith,

Time does fly - especially for older dudes like us.

Brady is compensated - no worries.

Good to hear from you. Missed you at MEMO this year,
