Encounter with a Blogger
Bloggers make up a growing, but yet small community. That's why I was pleased and surprised to find myself chatting at the courthouse with a fellow blogger-attorney, and one that we had linked to no less. Amy, of Salvation Amy - blog was doing the courthouse lobby search for the client with me this morning (a traditional attorney sport). We were sharing notes about the general appearance of our respective clients so as to help each other locate them. In the process we had a nice chat, and we discovered that we knew of each other in the blog world.
Well, that's the warm and fuzzy feeling for the day. You get no more. The Quota has been met.

Here There Be Pirates
Delaware is home to some famous illustrators of pirates.
Today's Wilmington News Journal has a nice piece on efforts of family members of one of them to catalog all of his works. Frank E. Schoonover was a student of Howard Pyle, and created many covers and interior illustrations for books and magazines.
The newspaper has a nice history of efforts to locate some of his works, which he often sold after they were returned to him by publishers of the books and magazines they appeared upon. See: Illustrator's kin on trail of lost art
If you would like to see one of his paintings, and you find yourself in Wilmington, there's a large mural by him on display in the New Castle County Court House.
