An awesome portrait of Polly and her wild-eyed Boston Terrier Watson kicks off our countdown to Halloween. Master cartoonist David Alvarez provided this adorable image, and I may be posting a few more of his pieces (plus a few by some surprise guests) as we get closer to the big night. If you haven't seen David's work in DC's monthly LOONEY TUNES comic or his delightfully playful strip YENNY, then you are missing some of the best cartooning out there.

Fires are still burning (but not down here) and the sky is still sickly gray (everywhere). Of course, no rain in sight until next month, or maybe December. Joy.
Worked fitfully through the day. Got Batman in and out of trouble, and then back in again, wrote a couple scenes for The Five, then lost interest in everything else except Misty and the ukulele. Plunked along with some old Ukulele Ike records most of the afternoon and tried to get the chords down to "It Had To Be You." Hardly a rip-snorter of a day, but it's been that kind of week.
