    Oh, my, what a delight to see you back in the fold, Liza. As long as we are doing last year’s summer cartoon, I might as well do my response to it:

    TWO BIRDS AT BEACH

    Oscar: So, it’s the end of the season, Bosie, time to fluff those feathers of ours and fly right.

    Bosie: Left––not right. Right takes you into that terrible sky slog that takes hours to fly through. Left takes you straight into the land of warm and sunny.

    O: Oh, very well. You know best or so you tell me. Now, take a gander at what’s leaving the beach––that family of four whose kids usually leave enough crumbs for a whole meal.

    B: I don’t much care for their kind of crumbs, I much prefer the leftovers from that Italian, Giorgio something or other––didn’t catch the last name––who looked devastating in those pale blue trunks, reminded me of Venice that last summer we were there.

    O: If it’s all the same to you, I’D prefer if you keep those thoughts to yourself and hustle on down to see what these nice people left us to munch on. You think you can do that Mr.-summer-in-Venice”?

    B: I love it when you get hot under your pinions, Oscar, it brings out the wild side of you.

    O: Gawd! The brain of a bird, I fear. Go, Bosie, find your little snackie and bring some back for me.

    Hope this means LIza’s cartoons will once again become a regular feature – always looked forward to seeing what she would come up with.
