Sydikos explains his long absence. It seems that while visiting the Duomo in Florence, he was inadvertently locked in when the church was closed for the night. He was forced to spend the entire night alone in the dark. What he observed that night was so strange and surreal that he felt compelled to report the story to his loyal subscribers and fans. Since Sydikos prefers to explain by animation, it has taken well over a month for him to draw and animate the story of that amazing evening.
Not familiar with Italian? “Che ne sara’ di noi?” translates to “What shall become of us?”
During a quick trip to his homeland to visit family and friends, Sidikos took a number of photos of the beautiful Island of Kos to share with his loyal fans and followers. A map of the island is also included in this most recent post.
Sidikos, on his latest trip to Italy, observed an unusual method of telling the
time of day in Italy. He sent this short video to share with his loyal fans.

This afternoon in front of a cheering crowd, Dr. Lockner received the Dr. Foot Award for excellence in foot surgery. The award was presented by a representative of the Dr. Foot Foundation who pointed out that Dr. Lockner was the first surgeon in the United States to be honored by this prestigious recognition. Sidikos extends his congratulations to Dr. Lockner.
When Sidikos was in the Twin Cities recently for the Winter Carnival he found it necessary to have foot surgery. The doctor that performed the operation was so exceptional that Sidikos put his name in to receive the prestigious Dr. Foot Award. The award committee agreed with Sidikos and the presentation will be made sometime in the near future.
