We won!...

...again and again and again! Because of bad sportsmanship on the part of few parents in the past (I hear), they didn't give out placement awards. Had they, we'd have taken first place, no doubt. The extra work I put in yesterday — adding more weight and polishing the axles with graphite lubricant — was time well spent. I realized that watching my son's reaction each time his car screamed through the finish line ahead of everyone else.

Now, I just gotta survive tonight's Christmas party with the wife. I can't dance, especially to jazz music.

Hi Don... I like your blog! I found it when searching for a picture of... of all things... a cow butt! I posted about it in my blog. I am very new to the blogging world and I have a question. I linked your picture to my blog because it fit so well with my post. It links back to your Flickr site. But I am concerned that this is not legal and I certainly do not want to engage in copyright violations. Can you please tell me if this was wrong. If it was, I will promptly remove the image! Thanks! I'm off to check out your work. We LOVE books in our house!

Not a problem at all. And you'd be surprised at how many people are searching for cow butts. When I illustrated Enkelin, I made the same search, and the term, surprisingly, turns up in my site stats often. Curious. Thanks again. I couldn't get to your blog though. You may want to change your public preferences.

Thanks so much for your reply! And thanks for letting me know about my preferences. I've changed them accordingly! Here's to happy cow butts! :-)
