There are all sorts of halls you can hold your kids’ party in. This one was “Fireman’s Hall” in downtown Barlett, between the Village Hall and the Fire Department. It was ideal, because the ample space allowed the kids to run around freely. We were celebrating Olivia’s firth birthday and her friends enjoyed the great space. Thank you, Lisa.

A curly-headed guy sat down on the couch in front of me with 12CassinDustinhis newly engaged fiancé.  This is at Samantha’s birth party—see previous post.  I mentioned  that this was a very comfortable party.

As I’m concentrating on drawing his cherubic face, I say absentmindedly, “I think I’ve drawn you before,”  He doesn’t answer.  I continue, “Was it in Bartlett?” He keeps still.  “Bartlett, on the Fourth of July.”  I ask if he’s ever been in Bartlett.  He say, he has friends in Bartlett.  He smiles.  I’m getting warm.  Then a name comes to mind.  “Your name is Justin, is that it, Justin?  I’ve Dustindrawn you before, right?” He laughs and then he says,  “Dustin.”    “Yessss, that’s it, Dustin.”  He laughs.  I promise to email him the caricature I did of him ten years ago on the Fourth of July  at the edge of a white tent in Bartlett.

When I turned the drawing around for the two of them to see, he threw back his head and laughed.

I hope Rae, the hostess, will forward these photos to him because the slip with his email address got left at the party.  Best to you, Dustin!
