Mark Evanier just pointed his audience to an illustration done in response to a piece he wrote on his blog many years ago about seeing Mel Torme over at the Farmer's Market in Beverly Hills. I had heard the story from my husband and it's just one of those heart-warming-with-a-zinger things I thought you'd enjoy. Check it out here. I'd save it for the Christmas season, but I'm so not sure I'd find it again.
I'm a professional photographer, a recovering attorney, an adjunct instructor of photography at a local community college and a four-time Jeopardy! Champion (Season 26.) Much of my spare time is spent learning to ride horses, an activity denied to me when I was a child. I love to cook and entertain and I am a passionate reader. I am married to an "old god" of the comic book world, writer Len Wein. He's the one who created Swamp Thing (with artist Berni Wrightson), the Human Target (with Carmine Infantino), Wolverine (with artists John Romita and Herb Trimpe), and Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler (with the late, great Dave Cockrum.)
