Maybe kids should be born with duct tape on their mouths, and Sunday sketches again

While driving to a program tonight, I saw a street with a familiar name:

My gig tonight was a Cub Scout banquet, with about 150 kids and their parents, too.
If you ever wondered how I present the birds and all of my gross goodies at a program, here's a picture of my table:

The birds are in the small blue and large white carriers, and the stuff in the front contains feet, tails, wings, skulls, pellet, feathers, etc. And a spiffy RAPTOR, Inc sign.

I had fun doing my sketches last Sunday, so I did it again:
(This will explain my post title)

My program tonight sketch

The adults were respectful and quiet, and the kids were high on something.

And a few highlights from my week, in marker form:
Week of 02-04-07-02-11-07 sketch
I'm too tired to post what I planned to, so I am off to read what all of you did this weekend.
BTW: We are in for 12 to 18 inches of snow starting tomorrow.
Can we say, "School Closings"?????

What do you do for a living?

Oh, I make rubber testicles that you can hang on you truck hitch.

Let's all count our blessings!

12-18 inches of snow?!? :(

There's talk of snow here too, Susan! I'm so excited - worse than a kid I am!

I think your programs must be incredibly cool. I'd be one of the grown-ups with my mouth in a little "o".

No, 2-4" in Cincinnati means school closings. Twelve to 18" means...


Where did you hear 12-18"? Geez, maybe I am going to have to rethink my plans about work this week. Or else, buy a snowmobile!

Your sketches are priceless!

I must say that I see tremendous improvement in your sketches from last week. You could keep sketching and use them as another visual aid in your presentations, but I'd leave out the testicles.

I'd love to be in your audience.

I like Katdoc's comment, "12 to 18 means we're all gonna die!" I hope the forecast is wrong and the girls are back to school.

So when the kids are blah blah blahing do you just keep talking?
It's cool to see all of your RAPTOR stuff! I wish I could see it all in person.
Truck testicles - they're just not a beautiful thing to see hanging around in public - IMHO.
I love your castle and boomer drawing! Heck, I love all of your drawings - keep it up!
I hope you don't have school closings. Enough already.
Try 11 feet of snow (that's feet) - that's what Oswego NY got. Just last week. Now that's a reason to close school.

School closings? SHEESH!
