Odyssey of a Would-Be Cartoonist, Part 2.

McConnell AFB, Kansas

July 23, 2018 – Looking through my attic this weekend for a folder of letters I had written home from my Air Force assignment in England from 1965-1968, I discovered instead a box of fifty-year-old publications.

I had carelessly preserved the publications because many of them included cartoons I had created as a young adult and I thought they might be interesting to have someday.

The papers in the attic were in an advanced state of deterioration so I brought them down stairs to scan them digitally before they were dust. They brought back memories of my developing adolescent sense of humor, and of the officers who encouraged me to keep it active.
