Sketching Super Bowl Sunday.

As I write this Philly is once again getting wrapped in a blanket of heavy wet snow,
and the temperature is dropping.

But on Super Bowl Sunday, it was almost balmy. I started my day
having breakfast at "Manhattan Bagel."

I then went to "Trader Joes," to beat the Super Bowl Party shoppers.
But of course by the time I finished this sketch, the lines were getting long at the check-out.

By mid-afternoon I needed a coffee break, so I walked the few blocks from my home
to "Town Hall Coffee Company," where I joined other "Regulars."

Around six I was to rendezvous with Nancy at the home of friends to watch the game.
As as I walked to the door I could see through the windows the party was already in full swing.
Only one problem; wrong house and party. I thanked the host for inviting me to join his friends anyway,
soon found the right house, and did this drawing as the Denver Broncos got TRASHED.

Happily I did not do the same.   


  1. Much fun to read your sketches Bill; they're a cornucopia of sensory moments, and you're such a pro at capturing it all.

  2. Thank you so much for your input, dear friend.
