Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Sorbet Cake
June 22, 2021
I celebrated the Eastern Orthodox Franksgiving holiday which with
a few friends last Friday, which in this case was about a week and a half
after the actual Franksgiving holiday. It was nice and one friend,
Dianne, made a sorbet "cake" slaving for hours over a cold freezer, or
something like that. It had 3 layer, raspberry on the bottom, orange in
the middle, and white on top (grapefruit?), and there were some sort of
crumbled graham-like cracker things on the side, though not on the bottom.
It was complete with a few birthday candles (6 but one went out when the
cake was brought out). 5 seems about right. Instead of blowing it out
with a covidy breath, I waved my hand to fan out the remaining candles.
It was nice and I've got some leftover and decided to take a picture of
it before it melted (or was consumed). Full size image is
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
