Some doodles are best left unexplained. Therefore I will unexplain it.

Also: I'm still working on posting follow up reports from Christmas. I think I got more feedback and photos this year than I did the last. I really enjoy getting them.
Here is another...
Pat had me doodle up an illustration of her trooper son. She sent me this note and the following photos.
Hi Rick, I'm finally getting around to sending you a couple of pictures of Mike, taken on Christmas morning, as he opened his caricature that you made for him. Needless to say, he was besides himself when he opened it ... he just laughed and laughed and thought this was the neatest thing!!! He kept looking at it and pointing things out, and then he'd laugh and laugh. He was amazed at the story behind it. He was going to take pictures with his cell phone and send to his trooper buddies throughout the state (easiest way to get it everywhere instantly), although he admitted no picture does it justice. He's told me several times later that that was the best Christmas gift ever. *sigh* He's going to have it framed at the same place where he's gotten his diploma and class picture done so it's all matching.
Many thanks Rick for a job well done ... it was fun and neat seeing 'my trooper' soooo happy!!!
Now that's the kind of follow up report I love to get.!!! "The best Christmas gift ever?" What can I say? I'm practically speechless. Practically. Nearly. Almost. Eventually.
Thanks Pat for those very very kind words. And before I get a chance to visit your beautiful state would you mind giving me your son's badge number—just in case I develop any ticketing issues while I'm there. After all, I did create his "best Christmas gift ever." That ought to mean something in the court of law.
