Popeye cartoonist Hy Eisman creates artwork for Glen Rock's Environmental Commission

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting Popeye and Katzenjammer Kids cartoonist Hy Eisman and his lovely wife, Florenz, as they made a presentation of artwork to Mayor John van Keuren.  The art will be featured on shopping bags which will be distributed to Glen Rock residents the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  This project was coordinated by the Glen Rock Environmental Commission.
The artwork captions are .. "We don't do paper, we don't do plastic, we bring our own, hey that's fantastic!  More and more Glen Rockers bring reusable bags to the store .. Its the green thing to do and Glen Rock loves green".  The framed piece is signed from Mr. Eisman to Mayor van Keuren.

Squirrel and Gnome photo in Bergen Record today

My squirrel and gnome photo, taken in mid-June, is featured in this morning's Bergen Record newspaper "Insight" article.  The caption given by the editors is, "Sneak attack: What's a squirrel to do when it's peacefully hopping through trees and gathering nuts, and suddenly spies someone waiting to ambush it with a slingshot?  This one decides the fair response is to knock some sense into the ol' gnome dome."  (Click to enlarge).

Blessing of the Animals in Ridgewood

Yesterday's sunny morning brought out a nice crowd of dog owners for the Blessing of the Animals at Christ Church in Ridgewood.  Fathers Lisby and Lewis read passages and offered St. Francis medals to the congregants.

Many of the dogs were rescues .. This one was from Hurricane Katrina and has been trained to be a Therapy Dog.

Video: David Cassidy & Davy Jones "I'm a Believer"

Sometimes I give my cameras a rest and take a little video instead.  Here's one taken with my Canon PowerShot A1000 back on September 7.  A one-time rendition of "I'm a Believer" by David Cassidy and Davy Jones at the Bergen PAC in Englewood, NJ.  Enjoy!
