This is my buddy Chip’s hand. He loves figs. This is from 2008, when we were on our way to the Mize Watermelon Festival, along with Daphne. I tried a fig for the first time, and it didn’t totally freak me out. I’ll also only eat boiled peanuts while I’m with those two, and on that trip, once a year.

This is an image from the forthcoming Sandusky Review, which will be almost a 100 pages (!!) of drawings and poetry and meditations about food, drink, and muses. Today I dropped off the image that will become the cover at the printing place for them to burn a screen for me—now to pick out some paper and figure out what the text on the cover will be!

  1. Can’t wait for the new SR! Figs are tasty! Chip is swell!

  2. I’m glad to see you got your site fixed. And. . . . I’m so pleased to see that Sandusky progress is at hand, Chip’s hand, to be specific. I like figs too. My husband’s Uncle Pete liked figs and had a fig tree in his back yard. Uncle Pete lived in a row house in South Philadelphia. The size of his backyard was probably 12 by 12, so to have a fig tree was, percentage wise, a big commitment to figs.
