Chris Leon's suggestion in his blog a while back gave me an idea for this cartoon. Instead of drawing him signing "big-headed" as Chris had originally envisioned, I've drawn him signing "Handwaves." This is to show how big-hearted we Californians really are. I'm a proud Californian. One of my ancestors, my late great-grandfather John McClintock, moved from the East to this state with his family at the beginning of the 20th Century and settled in Altadena, northeastern of Los Angeles. Back in his time Los Angeles was only a small city surrounded by mostly farmland. He planted orange trees in a land he bought there and, as a philanthropist, would later give many contributions to the city of Altadena. May the warmth of the sun we feel here in the West spread to the East and surround Kendall Green!
Stay tuned for my New Year's Eve message coming up soon tomorrow!
