Sure you have, because we all enjoy knowing a Birdie or two as they pass through our lives. She is any mature, seasoned woman who yearns for attention, and relies on her own sense of humor to survive. She cheats on her diet, squeezes into elastic-waisted pants, and takes revenge on her bathroom scale with force. She falls prey to hot flashes, primps in her tub, and swings fantasy into action by stalking the postman as he approaches her door. For decades, drawing Birdie has provided me my private comic relief. If you want to make somebody smile today, send Birdie over to meet the challenge; she will not let you down!
