A pen and watercolor drawing of a common house gecko. It may not be as flamboyant as the bright-green TV commercial spokeslizard, but this gecko is a hat tip to my family’s roots in Hawaii. Thanks to my aunt Shirley requesting this drawing and for my cousin Iris explaining why a tiny rubber gecko—sent to me as a reference image—means so much to Shirley! In summary, the tiny gecko was originally used to play a practical joke on my aunt Emi (Iris’ mom/aunty Shirley’s sister-in-law); aunty Emi gifted the gecko to Shirley and it has continued startling visitors in Shirley’s kitchen for over thirty years!
A raven flew into town. He was soft-spoken and mumbled his words, so there was widespread disagreement about his name. Birds called him Maurice, while cats knew him as Morris. Shortly after the raven left town for points west, the Daily Herald reported the disappearance of the mouse family residing in the abandoned tree hollow at Keebler Pond. Local authorities rounded up the usual suspects, but everyone had verifiable alibis. The case remains unsolved.
