Deep in concentration at my desk and doing extremely important work on my computer, my wife, Sylvia, sees nothing wrong with interrupting me to post cartoon clippings on the bookshelf above my desk. If she finds no space there or she feels the cartoon warrants special attention, she obtrusively drops it on my computer keyboard to ensure that I take notice! Each cartoon has usually been carefully selected to highlight a particular defect or trait that she feels I possess. Here are some of these clippings and a few of my own. I may have slightly modified some to identify certain friends that the cartoon brought to mind! I hope no one takes offence (and simply too bad if they do!)
