The Skidoo scribbles I posted the other day will be winging their way over to Fritz in the UK early next week (the best place for them and they will be happy beside the sea) and when mutual friend Bill liked the post on FB I thought I'd make a scribble for him too utilising the name 994 Engineers that he worked under back in the day. 
I was just thinking then that it really is so good that we are all still alive and in contact with each other
Finally a wee notebook to collect the red scribbles that I make.  
I made the RED logo using a chopstick that I turned into a nib and red food dye as the ink. 
Hey I'm poor and it's cheap
I cut out the design on one of those colour cards that you pick up in Paint outlets. It was a bugger to cut out esp without fresh sharp scalpel blades and the red overlay is more to stop it coming off the cover due to the rubbish but cheap glue I use
(Memo to self: must get some fixative spray)
It's weird that when I choose the words to paint then all is fine but as soon as that is taken out of my hands then it becomes a chore. 
Now you will get what I give you! I didn't mind doing this one tho for my friend Anthony. He wanted that inspirational quote from Lennon about life & making plans. 
I nodded and kept my mouth shut.
Also I didn't mention The Great Windex Disaster Of 2021 did I?
