Typically, I posted my comment in the wrong thread...meant to put it here:
The poster's great Jeff, and prints beautifully. Gotta find some really big paper, or take it somewhere to get printed "for real."

We're hosting a private party in Des Moines in case any of you are in the area (don't know why you would be, given a whole world of alternatives - but you never know). Anyway, readers of this blog are invited should you be in the area with nothing better to do. We'll have all Jeff's freebees plus plenty to eat and imbibe. And celebrating my birthday! Can't think of a better way to justify all this grey hair.
