Parade

I draw homes from time to time, and just found out that a couple (including this one) might end up in the Parade of Homes. The builder told me she would save me a book, so when it comes out, I'll scan the page in and blog it. Kind of fun. Well, it has been weird around here without my dog. I lost a day or so this week, and am starting to feel like I cam catching up again. Just finished the piece I am entering in the MNSCBWI/MCBA Illustration competition, so will take that to get it framed tomorrow. I have revised a couple sketches for the book, and will submit them to Alma Little. Man, my blogs are dull! Hmmm.....here is a joke that I made up all by myself:

Why were the police after the mint jelly?
Because it was on the lam! Get it? Oh, man! That was a good one! hahaha
