How Times Do Change

Looking forward to it with the same zeal that one would have for cleaning out the garage, I finally forced myself to trawl through Only in America and collect up previous graphics to complete me archive But it was rediscovering a couple of early blog posts, that if nothing else, gave way to a wry smile.
