Meet the artist

November 17, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This is the guilty party, the guy who can find a pen or a pencil anywhere. If I actually needed to find that needle in the proverbial haystack, this is who I would send in. Now, as irritating as it is to have your books scribbled up (oh, yes – he made his mark with […]
