Well, as the kids got older - a lot of the art started adding militaristic items.  Like this duck - wearing an army helmet and seemingly shooting high-caliber machine-gun fire out of his bill!  I actually love this stuff.  It makes me laugh, seeing what seemingly innocuous creatures/items the boys turn into dangerous weapons of mass destruction.  Of course, none of these pics made it into the book.  I've just delivered the last of my kids' art to Running Press.  And MOST of it - is much more innocent...

Maybe I should be writing a book called "Crap That Makes Dad Mad"!  These chicken nuggets were left in the back seat during a recent heat wave.  I found them when I climbed back in the car in the morning. (yes, it smelled like the back kitchen of a KFC!)  Seriously!!?  I was so mad I actually took a picture.  Then, I haven't had time - so its taken me weeks to post.  But now that i'm posting it - I'm still mad!  Maybe the book should be called "Where My Garbage Cans at?!  Holla!" Seriously, this isn't the first time.  It just backs up a theme you may have noticed...

THE ICING ON THE FACE Blue Hands Blue Lips Blue Face Blue icing all over the place What could be better than frosting? Certainly not cake 'Cuz you haven't touched a lick of it   Yup, I wrote this one before I found the picture.  Cuz that looks a bit more turquoise...

It's gonna happen!!  This is a big thank you for anyone and everyone reading this!  (all 2 of you!)  "Stark Raving Dad" was sold to Running Press this past week - with a release date for Father's Day 2019.  I am so excited and thrilled that its finally happening.   Of course, now I've gotta come up with more poems and more pictures.  The fun part!  (i hope?!)  Please stay tuned, there will be more to come. And if you haven't already - check out and follow on facebook and instagram!!  (and of course, please keep checking in here!) Sandy  ...
