Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Long Lasting Fun
November 17, 2021
Back almost a year and a half ago, when isolation and pandemics were new,
a couple friends spent several hours going around leaving gifts of
pinwheels at my place and the places of various other friends.
The pinwheels lasted a winter and two summers, and various lawnmowers,
snowblowers, and obnoxious neighbor kids. Like the Mars Rovers, they
didn't all fail at the same time. First one was gone, then another,
and today I noticed that the wheel was gone from the final one, and all
that remains is a stump. I rememeber noticing that it was spinning just
a day or two ago when I got home. So alas, all good things must come
to an end. But they performed their job admirably and for a surprisingly
long time, and there's always the possibility of new good things and
good times, and they lasted quite a long time. Huzzah!
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.
