A Writer and a Cartoonist Walk Into a Bar....

No, not really! I just wanted to get everyone's attention! The real story is that an idea came to me the other day about my life with The Ronald and I thought it would make a cute comic strip/cartoon. Since I can only draw stick people I asked my friend, Stephanie Piro, Cartoonist Extraordinaire, if she would draw a two-panel cartoon for me, and she said "Yes!" Below is our Piro & Povich collaboration. (You can click on the drawings to make them larger, too.)

Becky & The Ronald 2012



I can't begin to tell you how much I admire Stephanie, or how talented she is, or what a great person she is, so please check out these different sites and you'll begin to see for yourself.




THANK YOU AGAIN, STEPHANIE, FOR DOING THIS WITH ME!



*And welcome to my newest follower, Encourage One Another, I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see. Thank you!*

  1. Reading in bed is always a joy. Brilliant cartoon depiction of the changes that time can bring. I was grateful not to see the changes in gravity that occur in the same time frame.

  2. Things change over time, but the love of reading remains, although I wouldn't mind reading at a beach.

    There are writer submission opportunities on my blog if your readers are interested in getting published. YOU should submit, I know you have stories :)

  23. That little comic strip probably matches a lot of couples after that many years of marriage. I read alone in bed. He snores..I read! :) (and it's only been three years!) LOL Ok..so we are in our mid and late seventies...:)
