Adan the Alien

Not only is my name not Adan, but you didn't post my chalking!

Edit: Okay, you fixed it. So the above statement is no longer valid But still... *shakes fist* you're making me look like a liar!

@Adam - not sure what happened there, it munged it on the original posting, but I went back in and fixed it immediately! who wants to suffer the wrath of the alien?!

Joel, did you get a close-up of Shannon's sad tummy drawing?

I'm really glad we had a chalk-off today. I needed it - there's no better therapy than chalking. I lost a friend earlier this week, and found out today that my 28-year-old cousin died last night. So a holiday chalk-off was just what I needed.

I'm not sure who to vote for...the kids all did great work, Joel's 2012 dragon and Charlie Brown Christmas tree is fantastic, the "Yule Bike Tacoma" pun is hilarious, and Mike's snowmen remind me of my beloved Calvin and Hobbes. I'll have to give this some thought.

Isaac's and Joel's work were awesome as was TacomaBikeRanch's (especially that Festivus Pole on his bike!). Really sorry to hear about your losses Adam but you'll always have us and chalk. Be well good sir. :) My vote goes to Mike's awesome dragon and snowmen!

Great day for chalking. Merry Everything everyone!
