I wanted to give a special nod to our family pug, Wally. We took him on our recent trip. He's an excellent traveler and has a particular fondness for hotels. Now I know why Kay Thompson used a pug in Eloise.

Okay, so I ran into R2-D2 this morning in a hotel lobby. He waltzed right up to me burpin' and a chirpin'! I had this stupid grin that I could not pry off of my face if I tried. This is one of my all-time favorite STAR WARS characters! He was very humble and polite for a guy who has saved the universe numerous times.
I'm behind on my daily color sketches, but my family and I just returned from a weekend in Carlsbad, California where we had the good fortune to experience LEGO STAR WARS DAYS at LEGOLAND!

I had the pleasure of meeting the "Skateboard Mom", Barb Odanaka a few years back. We were both promoting our books at an area school. Lucky for me, she appeared at the school a day after my visit. She puts on quite the show apparently!
Through her, I learned of some print houses that will print your design on a skateboard! How cool is that?!
It's been a while, but maybe someday soon I'll get the chance to reconnect with the Skateboard Mom, talk to some people I know, get them to talk to some people they know, then get the Skateboard Mom to talk to the people she knows, and maybe get some charity-auction-action going!
