This has to be the silliest looking penguin ever, yet it graces the envelope that carries another flash card to my young pen friend, Carter the Great. This is our second P. A lower case p. I think I am a week behind in our 52 week mail challenge. Hopefully he takes it in stride because he wasn't feeling well for a while. There's nothing as aggravating as falling behind with your mail, so I don't want him to feel overwhelmed. It's all about having fun.
So, in that vein, here's my attempt at a bit of levity. I need a caption for this little 'toon. It has a mail theme. The SASE (self address stamped egg) makes it so. To enter this contest, simply put your caption on a postcard and get it to me by April 1. International entry deadline is April 30. Please include an English translation 'cause you know I barely speak American as it is. Y'all are some funny people, so I'm looking forward to some knee slappers.

One of my favorite things: A Blue Q pencil keeper/case. Okay, I keep more than pencils in mine. It holds a pencil sharpener, one of my carpenter pencils, which is still a pencil, but . . . I get in a kneaded eraser, a couple-three gray markers for sketches on the fly, a roll of . . . Heck! You decide what you want to use it for. I'm just saying, it acts as a mini creativity kit that's great for sketching while sitting out time before appointments, sketches in the park or even the backyard. It wipes clean with a damp cloth.
And if you use it with common sense, you will avoid embarrassing things like this . . . Scroll down.
A marker without a cap can make you weep. My second favorite set of sheets is ruined. It was much worse before I used wads of paper towels soaked with alcohol. *sigh* Such a lovely shade.
I could have used it to draw this, huh? Yes! The first iris of the year. I spied it the second I opened the door. Imagine going to get the mail and being greeted with this instead. The second one hadn't opened. Tomorrow.
