Mini-Memo from Boston

Weather Report: Chilly but clear, perfect for our Nor'east trip so far.

Highlight #1: Western Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Highlight #2: My work on a wall at the Norman Rockwell Museum. Holy cow.

Highlight #3: Dave Sim, Peter Kuper, Howard Cruse, Marc Hempel, Mark Wheatley.

Highlight #4: Especially Terry Moore ("Strangers in Paradise") and his wife Robyn. Nice, nice, nice people. I feel like I made new friends for life.

Highlight #5: Two hours with cartoonist Guy Gilchrist, a kind, generous, and entertaining gentleman. And he bought the pizza.

Highlight #6: Historic Boston. Never been here before, and I love going someplace and having my perspective rearranged. The places in the history books are real, many within a short walk of each other. Cool.

Pictures and more maybe late Wednesday.

Hey, Brian! I envy your trip, if only for its locale!

Western Massachusetts has a special place in my memory and heart: Doug was born there, and four of my finest young years were spent there. I hope future entries in your blog expand on "Highlight #1" in this one.

And on all the other highlights, too, of course.

Glad to hear you're having so much fun!

Thank you for re-confirming everything I've ever thought about Guy Gilchrist. The handful of times he posts to r.a.c.s., he seems like one of the kindest, nicest people on planet earth.

Sounds like it was a great time in the company of great cartoonists! Hope you and the Mrs. stayed warm, my friend!
