Whitney Darrow, Jr.: "I Don't Know Much About Real Estate..."

Wishing a happy Father's Day to all!

A 1978 letter from cartoonist Whitney Darrow, Jr. is hand-written and hand-drawn. It is amusing and sexy and even seems to have a self-portrait of the artist. Yet at auction it did not find a buyer. There are no sure things in this world.

Note:  I would be remiss if I did not offer you a look at some additional letters preserved for posterity on this blog. Why read only your own mail?

A quick glance through the blog archive offers a wide-ranging introduction to the work of Whitney Darrow, Jr. Take a look. Impress your friends.

Can you believe what passes for a Father's Day post around here? Yet today's post is relatively tame. You should have seen this blog last year!

A few of my blog posts look at the summer season.

Yesterday this blog was mentioned on Ink Spill. Did you catch it?
