Dear Brian (updated)

Back in March:

From Henry Healy:

Hi TOD,

I got to meet with the President yesterday and I wanted to share with you this drawing that I presented him with. It’s a pencil drawing of the president in front of his ancestral home and the White House. It was by Brian Fogarty a school teacher from Co Tipperary now living in Galway.

Kind Regards,

Henry Healy

This morning’s email:

Hi TOD,

I hope you are well. Remember the picture I sent you that I gave to the President in March? Well, the artist got a letter from the President thanking him for the portrait! I attach a copy of it for you and also a link to Brian’s Facebook page.

Kind Regards,

Henry

Thank you Henry – love that drawing, it’s beautiful.

(I asked Henry if his head hurt today, he said “it’s coming ’round” – so, good news!)

picasso? eat your heart out….

Apologies for this silliness, but I felt an overwhelming need to share……

Does anyone here play Charadium on their iPads/iPhones?

It’s just an online game where you’re given a word that you have to draw, and everyone else has to guess what it is.

So, my word was ‘crook’.

Now, at the best of times I can’t draw, but how do you draw crook?

Shut up, I didn’t think of that.

So I opted for a pic a bit like the one at the top … and cheated just a little by scrawling ‘Romney’ under my, um, art.

😳

Some of the guesses from the ‘players’ just made me – literally – weep:

Slimeball

Slick

Cheat

Tax

Taxes

Rich

Wealthy

Millionaire

Billionaire

Snob

Dick

GOP

Republican

Turd

Flipflop

Fraud

Liar

Creep

…and…

Crook!!!!

I won!!!

I’m honestly not making this up.

My most loved online poll, ever.
