Due to a problem with my computer I will be unable to add to my blog until after the 1st. I hope you will all come back and check it out. Take care and have a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!
This little ditty actually took place in '71 at Summer Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. What was most embarrassing was that I was in full uniform and my head was buried in the shoulder of my then wife, Janice. She was sooo brave!
Every so often we at "The Grand Life" are moved by the plight of the less fortunate (as hard as it is to believe, there are those less fortunate than we are). When we saw this authentic, unretouched, real, no kidding, photograph we were moved. In fact, we're still moving. When we quit moving I will be soliciting money for the Swimming Salmon Society. Dedicated to the teaching of salmon to swim.
During her pre-goth days Breanna joined the family for a day at the fair...hence the title. Also, Breanna appears only in this one cartoon, as does the grand kids and Violet but, it was a way to explain the change in her appearance.
I have been married twice, the first time was to Janice, mother of our two children, Thomas David Holloway and Tracy Lynn Barron. The second, to Sheri with whom I have a daughter, Breanna Lynn Holloway. I have a Grand daughter by Tom and Christine her name is Kassandra, also, I have two Grandchildren by my daughter Tracy; Connor and Alexandra. All 3 have stolen my heart!!!
I was art director for an advertizing firm when, in 1986 I was declared legally blind with cone dystrophy.
I have continued to draw through the use of magnifiers,enlargers and a cctv, and the continued support of family and friends. My comic strip, THE GRAND LIFE, is currently running in Thursday's edition of The Frederick News-Post. For personal contact my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to hear from you!
(Please note that as of January 2010, The Grand Life has been dropped by The Frederick News-Post.)
