    My personal favorite of all the ones I’ve enjoyed illustrating so far. It’s funny–as I read this, I can still hear Harvey’s voice in my head from when he called me and dictated the script over the phone. The mind is a wonderful thing. Thanks to Mr. Pekar for the chance to work with him and to everyone who read this for your interest.

    This one is great! I am both happy and sad to know that worrywartage does not wane as we wander further along the pathway of lyfe.

    there are a lot of younger people who are in decent shape physically and financially and still worry their asses off, Harvey.

    It’s rather saddening, that he died feeling this way- success doesn’t necessarily give you happiness.

    before, I’ve never been there but heard so much about it. Absolutely gorgeous buindilgs and I’d like to see as many as you can post!By the way, Ocala is a premier race-horse breeding and racing site in the world! Many top contenders and winners come from Ocala stables. I think there are at least 200 horse farms raising thoroughbreds in Ocala. It is truly “horse country”!All set amidst rolling hills and huge oak trees.
