Mr. Local

Zdepski's Illustration of Mr. Local, from Ocean City, NJ

Mr. Local asks...

"What are you drinking?"
"Is it a bitter beer?"
"The beer around here is bitter."
"Should I wear a sweater tonight?"
"Will it be windy?"
"That rain came up fast."
"I'm going to the point."
"Will it be sunny?"
"What's that?"
"I live at the senior center."

He stopped by to talk to us every day at the beach. I think he's lonely.

I Hate Vacation

Watercolor in my Moleskine sketchbook - 7th Street, Ocean City, NJ. I can't stand the driving, schlepping bags, foraging for food and not having "my stuff" around me.

Ernest Borgnine - Shipping out

Zdepski's sketch of Ernest Borgnine as Mermaid Man
Portrait of Ernest Borgnine from Wikipedia Bio Page
Spongebob Squarepants Character, Mermaid Man

So sorry to hear of Ernest's passing. My uncle the sailor always said, "When the good Lord calls, you better have your sea-bags packed.", which I think suits Mr. Borgnine's life and career. He always seemed to be involved with the ocean in one way or another, from McHale's Navy, the Poseidon Adventure or Sponge Bob Squarepants. Thanks for they years of entertainment, Marty.
