Eric Barclay said...

Thanks so much, everyone! I realized when I posted this that I was dating myself... getting to watch that show was a big deal when I was a kid.

Jack Foster said...

Hey Eric! That CB clip was the best!! Still laughing. When my wife and I were dating, on Saturday night, a group of us would go get a number at the bowling alley (it was usually over an hour wait for an alley) , then we would go to my cousin's house (He lived the closest to the bowling alley) and watch Carol Burnett, then go back to the bowling alley just in time to hear our number called..... now I'm dating myself ;o). Love the illo! Very cool color palette and I like that you didn't forget the monkey! You ROCK!

well, my english isn't good enough to understand the joke, with all its details. A pity, I figure, because only seeing them laugh for so long and in depth... :-)))
Anyway your illo it's real fun by itself.
Monkey plays a important part, I suppose.
