A cartoon blog starring Laurel Tilbury, 9, of 33-1/3 Tadcaster Place, Worcester, Massachusetts. New cartoons appear every Sunday in the Living/Homes section of the Sunday Telegram and online at www.telegram.com.
At stART last Sunday, Hank Stolz invited Laurel and me to visit on his Channel 3 show, WAKE UP WORCESTER. The episode will be taped Wednesday afternoon, with the broadcast either Thursday or Friday at 6 and 8 a.m. Thanks, Hank!
While the mops and buckets swing into overtime at the Benchley School, mark your calendars now for the Blackstone Canalfest, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 12 (rain date Sept. 19) on Harding Street between Temple and Water streets. Festivities include horse-and-wagon tours, music, entertainment, art displays and a 75-foot-long replica of the canal--guaranteed leakproof as opposed to Laurel and Gloria's. The event's free, with $1 parking at the Union Station garage. Visit www.blackstonecanal.org for more info. And be seeing you at stART in two weeks!
Began to eat in Worcester, 1957. Allegedly grew up on South Ludlow St. Alumnus of dubious standing: Heard St. School, Worcester Alternative High School, UMass-Amherst (wrote senior thesis on KRAZY KAT). Cartoons have appeared in CLASSIC IMAGES, WORCESTER MAGAZINE, MOTHERTOWN, WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE, INCITY TIMES. Married to Bernadette since 1989, a testament to her sense of humor, and daddy to honorary kids Eric John Yankus-Franco and Jessica-Lee Van Winkle, and to pen-and-ink daughter Laurel Angela Tilbury.
