An apology

Now shipping

EasrBThe blog’s been a little dry lately. Sure, I try to put up what I hope are interesting odd things like the piece on the person who provided Lucy’s drawing for Snoopy and “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night”, or yukking it up a bit about the plethora of the books with the title Snoopy and Friends.

So my apologies go out to anyone who feels it’s all been a little dry lately. I’ll try to keep finding things I can share. Stick with me, folks!
