Ok, here’s the explanation: Every year I have this little contest with Frank, my step-dad. I won’t go into the rules, but basically what you need to know is that it involves prognosticating the outcome of the NFL season, and that almost every year he wins. Fortunately we don’t bet money, but instead each year the “prize” is a word somehow related to football that we interpret creatively in the giving of the prize. Last year the prize was “fantasy”, and so here is my illustration of Frank’s fantasy (note that he’s a Detroit boy and a long-suffering Lions fan):
Several friends of mine are going through the painful process of separation. It is very sad and my heart goes out to them…and their kids.

This drawing was started last weekend and has nothing to do with my grandmother or my family.
She lived to be 105 years old…and she did get to meet her great grandson Milo on her 105th birthday last December:
Someday I will apologize for passing along to him my oversized, dual-lobed cranium.
