  1. I would never in my dreams think that those two would have anything in common…Although I loved both of them dearly ., what a photo! My boyfriend would have loved this photo so much…how do download this photo for a desk top photo? Thanks for sharing…

  2. Oh…my memory is so bad! I have the illustrated monkey wrench gang with crumb’s illustrations I bought rears ago! Duh! Now I see the connection..but would like to know who contacted who to have crumb do the illustrations…Once saw crumb at local university art supply store in Berkeley. ..He was with his wife up on the mezzanine where I was buying illustration ink pens…I was in such shock and am so shy I didn’t bother them…
