To Jeff Barnard

Jeff Barnard was one of the best friends Worcester had. His kindness and support when this blog was started--together with his sense of humor and laughter when we met at stART last year--I'll always remember. Here's our gal Laurel as Cinderella riding home with Jeff in a cartoon from October 2009, not long after our first meeting. Our condolences to Kathy and family. Excelsior, Jeff.

Happy Thanksgiving...

...from Laurel, Gloria, Audra and yours t. in this week's Worcester TelegramTowns.

For your entertainment and approval...

... a pre-Laurel cartoon that ran in CLASSIC IMAGES' November 2002 issue, recalling the T-Day triple play served by WOR-TV. As Jean Shepherd said, "Speaking of turkeys, this is WOR, New York!"

"Once upon a time . . . "

With the Worcester TelegramTowns site, alas, still in need of its figurative bug spray, we submit the latest adventures of our gal Laurel from today's print edition for your entertainment and approval.

Please stand by!

The TelegramTowns page at has been redesigned recently, with a number of technical difficulties to be fine-tuned, among them Laurel's disappearance on the new page (though she does appear on the old page, accessible further down on the site). So Laurel will return to her Sunday block every week, with the Nov. 11 cartoon presented here for your entertainment and approval. Become a Facebook friend of mine and see her every Thursday, also!

Also, Derek Ring and I will be "boofmates" again at stART's holiday event Dec. 5 at Union Station. With luck, the new Laurel book will join us. Be seeing you!
