  15. America I can almost smell the sea air while gazing upon this tantalizing creation. I feel the warm sun on my face and the ocean breeze in my hair. (Oh, maybe it is the Peppermint Patty I just popped in my mouth) lol Nah, that is just my corny sense of humor. This is sensational and a stellar addition to the gallery at MMSC. Great job with the sketch this week. Thank you for playing along with us ad the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
