Posts Tagged ‘McCordsville’

As a recent transplant from Chicago, I make an effort to study the local geography.  I look things up:   McCordsville, a suburb of Indy, was founded in 1865 by—surprise—the McCord family.  Just as well, Chicago was named after the indigenous word for onion.

You get to McCordsville by taking 96th east a bit.  You know you’ve arrived when mansion-envy hits you and you notice that everybody is looking way above average.

So, as a caricaturist I had to face these DNA winners. On the bell curve of photogenic, this family was on the rarified rim, like the bunch that passed the screen test.  But, luckily, I’m prepared for all sorts of thrills when I head out with the tools of the trade.

Thank you, Sarah and John!
