If you enjoy the cartoons you see here on "Cartoon A Day", click on the Facebook icon floating at the top of the social icon stack to the left and you can share it with your friends on Facebook - how cool is that? Thank you all for visiting my page and taking an interest in these cartoons - you make it such a pleasure and privilege to be a cartoonist.
