doodle by andre: never heard from again

WELL, THIS SOLVED ONE OF LIFE’S GREAT MYSTERIES, at least for me. Since matter cannot be destroyed, I was sure all the former Frosty’s were somewhere…but where? As ever Andre Jordan, king of the doodle, made matters crystal clear.

    My favorite Christmas card ever said “Have a Merry Christmas” on the front, with a little pool of water, a few lumps of coal and a carrot. Inside it said “Frosty would have wanted it that way.”

    Hard to lose our friends.

    I loved the “Martha” appearance. I think your book title is from my favorite poem. I had it in a folder on my desk for years…may be time to put it back. Bravo for living the life many of us dream of and leaving our Metronomic Society. I may buy your book and “Growing a Farmer” together and dream away a whole weekend! I can’t wait to see what’s next for you…as I dream about my Inisfree.

  3. Andre’s doodles remind me of Michael Leunig’s cartoons. If you haven’t heard of them, Margaret, I think you’d enjoy them. Just google Michael Leunig to find his website. I received your book in the mail this week and have begun to read it. I’ve enjoyed the first chapter, so far. I also live at the end of a ‘dirt’ road – actually it’s gravel – with a large garden out a bit from town. I have all of the Cornus you featured and one more that might interest you: Cornus sanguinea ‘Compressa’. It has no flowers, but it is rather columnar with tiny, leather dark green leaves. Gossler’s Nursery in Springfield, OR carries it. It will only reach approximately 8′ tall. Intriguing little plant.

    Thanks for the response , and the links. I appreciate knowing where Andre is “coming from” – now if I could just get the humor.
