We had this drawing in our house when I was growing up, but I didn't really know or appreciate the story. It's a signed sketch by Cy Hungerford, the artist who drew the Snoodles cartoon in the 1920s. Apparently Hungerford lived in Pittsburgh, as did my mother's parents. My grandfather was at a conference in Pittsburgh just before my mother was born. Cy Hungerford was at the same conference, and learned that my grandfather was expecting a child, so he drew the sketch for my grandfather. We feared it was destroyed, but I found it today in my parents' attic, and now it is hanging safely in our newly-painted apple-green bedroom. (Thanks, Lisa!)
