Speck the Altar Boy

This book was originally my uncle's (when he was a boy) but was given to me by my mother when I started serving many moons ago. Speck is a mischievous server in the times when priest wore cassocks and nuns wore habits. The cartoons are drawn by Margaret Ahern.

I’ll be posting a scanned image of Speck’s adventures here and there.

and no lace... none of the Speck cartoons have any lace.

Fabulous! Absolutely wonderful comic! Good work on keeping this; make sure you bring it to Mass on Sunday. I'm pleased about the lace...

Margaret's my grandmother. She was an amazing woman... compassion, faithful and always kept her sense of humor!
