April Showers

Hello! Let’s waste no time!…

ds207

Say, do you know what? That’s okay, neither do I. I hear that’s pretty common nowadays…

ds290

When people start to question your judgement, that’s when you need to reframe the question to your own advantage!..

ds293

How often do you contemplate the nature of existence?

ds292

Why not sit back and try to take the long view?..

Whatever the future may hold, hopefully it won’t be a cynical rehash of the past!

RSDS: Cats Can Be Stubborn!

And so can people!

First up, Rick Stevens and “Diesel Sweeties”:

Of course, there’s a reason both species have a reputation for being stubborn:

Okay, so much for felines and their companions, let’s move on to something almost as universal, courtesy of contributor Matt Lubchansky:

Some of the folks who actually return to this humble blog voluntarily may be wondering why we haven’t gotten around to something by Tom Tomorrow..

Well, to them I say:

And, in closing, please return soon!

Remember, the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, the RCMP, the White House, MI-5, #10 Downing Street, the Kremlin and probably the Salvation Army as well already know you’ve visited this humble (and inoffensive) blog.

Good luck!

(And don’t get too smart in front of your Samsung smart TV…)

 

Waiting for St. Patrick…

…Or someone like him.

First, I find the springtime holidays confusing.

What exactly does it mean if a leprechaun awakens to see his shadow? Six more weeks of unleavened bread? A plague of rabbits and hardboiled eggs? Boston Red Sox spring training?

Somebody please help me out here…

Social media, which was going to revolutionize EVERYTHING, has totally failed to do anything of the sort, thereby joining the Information Superhighway, Dolby 5.1 sound systems and the 3D HDTV on the scrap heap of recent history..

Tempting though it may be, I refuse to write what I know. It’s too depressing. Besides, every time I think I know something, it turns out I don’t. And I refuse to acknowledge so much as one more existential crisis after the most recent general election…

For those with too much time on their hands, have you noticed how it looks as though Kellyanne Conway has practically fallen off the face of the Earth in just the past two weeks? Hope you enjoyed your 15 minutes of game, there, K.C.!

Wrap it up already! Want to know the secret to successful blogging? KISS! (Keep It Simple, Sweetie!) You know, short, like a career in the office of #POTUS # 45.

Thank you! Please come back again soon!

The snakes are still around!

We’re workin’ on it!

February Post, version 2.0

First, thanks to everybody who took the time to reach out to me during my birthday. It was greatly appreciated.

Matt Lubchansky shows us how a favorite presidential claim about the opposition plays out in Real Life…

Thanks to every artist whose gifts appear here and thanks to YOU for coming, thanks for liking, thanks for sharing and thanks in advance for your next visit!

 Time for a visit from Tom Tomorrow!.. 

Okaaayyyyy… I think that sums it all up very neatly!

Remember, boys and girls, anytime you find yourself challenged by any situation that’s obviously “rigged,” just call on your “alternative facts” and jump into a whole new universe where YOU make the rules!

And please don’t forget your visit is always appreciated, ESPECIALLY when you use any of the buttons below to like, share, comment and so on..

Please come back soon to see the latest response to the Oversexed Orange New Yorker!

RSDS: About That…

Wow, it has certainly been a week.

Many thanks to everyone who provided feedback and support. Sometimes this writing thing begins to make a little sense.  I’m happy about just being able to function on any level.  I have my wife and daughter to thank for that, not to mention my more extended family.

But, hey! Enough about me, let’s turn our attention to Rick Stevens’ “Diesel Sweeties”!

ds216

And now, let us return to those thrilling days of Tom Tomorrow’s ” This Modern World “!…

Am I the only one who actually finds this scenario comforting, compared to real life?

Many thanks to the artists who create this material. Please visit their websites and support them with your generosity if you can!

And please take a moment to like, share or comment below.

Believe me, it means a lot!

See you soon!

TMW: This Explains EVERYTHING!

We’re within 2 weeks of this epic melodrama’s end! We can all see the light at the end of the tunnel! And at long last, all is being made clear!…

Thanks to Tom Tomorrow who explains so much so easily!

There are more posts in the pipeline, so please keep checking in from time to time to see what’s new!

And now, the regular closing Public Service Announcement

Assuming you live in the United States and assuming you are registered to vote and assuming your state permits Early Voting, please cast your ballot as soon as conveniently possible. It looks very likely the polling places may be swamped come November 8th, so if you can avoid the crowds and the lines on that fateful Tuesday, I encourage you to do so.

Until we meet again along the Interwebs!…

TMW: Word Salad BOGO!

Just 3 more weeks!…

If we can all just hang on for 3moreweeks!…

Just imagine what this must be like for our stalwart cartoonist Tom Tomorrow!

The man must have ice water running through his veins…

tmw2016-10-19-word-salad

Incredibly, it seems I missed one of last week’s cartoons…

(and it even has a shout-out to one of my favorite topics: Superman!)

So to make up for that — however belatedly — here it is:

Please remember your visits are always appreciated!

The same goes for your “likes”, “shares”, comments and everything else!

Until we meet again, please take good care of yourself!

TMW: Please Pass Him a Tissue!…

One gets the feeling that an awful lot of editorial cartoonists are going to be hurting for material once the current Presidential campaign in the U-S finally wraps up in (as of this writing) five (5) weeks…

After last Monday’s debate, you just KNOW Tom Tomorrow was planning to trot out the old orange ogre this week…

tmw2016-10-05color

Sure hope you enjoyed this one; more on the way very soon!

God bless us every one!
