Hey Rat Finksters and Finkettes!!!! I would like to wish Everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! It is the year of the "Rat" you know. I would like to thank Ilene Roth for inviting me into the Ed "Big Daddy" Roth Rat Fink Family this year. And I want to thank my long time animation friend, Ken Mitchroney (Mitch), for introducing me to Ilene, and supporting my passion that I've had toward Ed and what he stands for, all these years. He was my first inspiration as an artist, 45 years ago. Man!!!! To Coop, Frank and the gang, who made me feel right at home in the Roth Family. It was an awesome honor to be named the Ed "Big Daddy" Roth artist of the year for 2008. Julie and I had an awesome and unforgettable time at the reunion in Manti. We'll be back in 2009! Ilene; thank you for being the wonderful person you are, and thank you for all you do for us. Your continued and eternal support, and love for Ed is priceless. It's awesome to be part of the Roth Family. Take care always. Finkingly Yours....Jeff xo
