Dinner with Alan Gardner


Tuesday night a few local cartoonists and I are having dinner with Alan Gardner, who runs the excellent dailycartoonist.com (there at your right). I found the above painting of him at his Wikipedia page. I look forward to hearing about his outstanding career in the Royal Navy, and I can tell him what it's like to be a guitar hero and singer-songwriter who played with Fairport Convention.

When the Onion has good things to say about you, that's a big deal.

Yeah, my editor passed it along. I'm tickled!

Of course, the Onion prints cartoons by Kelly, so you know how high their standards are.

The bad news is that Alan Gardner won't stop talking about the good ol' days when the sun never set on the Brit empire, Britannia ruled the waves, etc. The good news is that he yo-ho-hos in a loud and entertaining way about the dinner table, especially when seen thru the haze of a couple of dregs from that bottle of rum he brings.

So you've eaten with him too, huh? Plus he puts catsup all over everything. No, that was MIke Rhode.
