    One of these days, I’m going to post your drawing with a link to this site! 🙂 Is it YOUR drawing? If so, it it okay for me to post it?

    Actually, I post these drawings frequently – they come from a guy named Sam Brown who shows them all on a web site called Exploding Dog (see link in my “go here. now” category at right). He is fine with people sharing these, but I always try to throw his credit and a link wherever I use them. Glad you like!
