The "Lost" Sketchbook

I left this little sketchbook at my local post office yesterday. A guy found it the same day, figured out my address and popped it in the mail. I had not realized I had even lost it when it appeared in my PO Box today. People are cool.

Mr Toast arrives and gets ready to head to Kentucky.

Here we see the Roebling Bridge (The same bridge in the film Rainman with Dustin Hoffman)

Riverboat row near Belleview, KY.

We can see downtown Cincinnati across the river.

Dolls Shipment

The new shipment of dolls came yesterday. I was down to about 50 dolls so they came just in time. They have new tags and are a little poofier.

I also got the shipment of Imaginary World Comics #2. It was quite a day for Mr Toast. Now I just have to find a place in my storage unit for all these boxes....
