He's Almost Famous

By "he," I mean Rick. But no one would know this unless they knew his last name, which is Oberle.

Let me explain.

About a year ago, Rick was biking with two triathletes, one of whom was cartoonist Jef Mallett, who does the daily strip Frazz.

(That's Jef with Patty, his wonderful wife and occasional guest blogger.)

In fact, Rick's first venture out after having a terrible accident that day, during which Jef and his friend Jimi helped get him safely to the hospital, was to attend Jef's book signing.

Well, on New Year's Eve Day when Rick checked into the web site as he does each morning, he saw this.

If you can click you can see it bigger! We all laughed!

Too funny! I love Frazz -- this is one you need to frame! Let's hope, though, that Rick doesn't create any more material for the strip.

I remember when he went to the book signing. This is great! And remember, famous always is better than infamous - I'm not sure where "almost famous" fits in! :-)
