60 years ago yesterday...

...I was born.

When I arrived my head was all lopsided.
All my life, I've been told that my mother's first words when she saw me were:
"Why is his head shaped like a lima bean?"

I heard this story (often) as I was growing up.
Was I given my totem upon my day of birth?
Sometimes it sure seems like it.

A few years ago, I asked my mom to document it.
It's the drawing above.
I open my solo presentations "The Leguminous Life & Times of Larry Marder" with it.
Then it dissolves into the illo below.

I want to thank all my friends, relatives, colleagues, and fans who took the time to wish me a "Happy Birthday" yesterday.

Cory & I had a great "get-away"weekend and all of your well wishes made it even better.

With great love and fondness to you all,
(Plus a Hoo-Hoo-HA & a Hoka-Hoka-HEY for good luck!)
Your ol' pal,

I'm too late to wish you a happy birthday this year, so I'll wish you a happy unbirthday instead. %?)
