  Monday Morning Mirth

Yesterday, my friend Di and I went up to the annual Andersonville Midsommarfest for a little twist and shout…

We walked and walked the blocks looking for Festival love in all the boothes – but NAY! Gone were the more enterprising artisans and bling pushers – in their place were real estate mongers, chiropracters, and cheap cheap jewlery. All that was missing were the 6-packs of Tube Sox…

The only really Original Guy I saw was the Man who, for a fee, engraved your very own name on a Grain of Rice!

It brought to mind the button you see above – a souvenir of my very first street fair in Chicago a million years ago – my head on a pigeon body, drawn by none other than Gary Whitney.

Mr. Whitney & a fellow named Jay Lynch were wacky underground comic artists of note from the 80′s – I feel Immortal! NOW that’s what a good Street Fair should do for ya…
