Comics From The Archives...



Nothing to blog about so I'll post old comics I made until something comes up... For more current stupidity, go here...

Old photos...

Nothing to vignette about today. More old photos.... This counts as my paragraph for today, by the way....

I think this is my dad's aunt in this old photo. I looks like one I scanned a few years ago for an old blog post. I'm too lazy to dig through my old photos to find out for sure...


I know for sure in this one is my grandma standing in front of the car, my dad on top & not sure who the other woman is....

Random Mania...

Did some cleaning around the house. Turns out sandpaper is good for cleaning pee stains from around the toilet rim. 220 grit....

Did a tiny bid of weeding around the front porch (no pictures of it will follow)....

Watched Dr. Strange on Netflix. Pretty good movie with some good spiritual components. The word "multiverse" pops up in it a lot too which I was happy to hear....

I so thankful for spellcheck on today's electronic devices & computers. My spelling seems to be getting worse these past few years--or I'm not seeing the need to spell correctly & just wait for the dotted red line to let me know I've misspelled something. Actually I'm not as bad at spelling as I let on, just make a lot of typos--that's not really true either. Not sure about any of this really....

I've also been looking through my photo archives on Google; the pictures I posted in my old blogging days, one of which I will wrap up my current post with...

Smile! 
Until tomorrow...

Vignette Gibberish ...

The other day at work I overheard a parent who was trying to take her child's picture telling him to "look at me & smile before I smack you...!

My neighbor's little puppy has grown into an angry, neglected pit-bull who barks & cries a lot. I wonder who will be the first to get bit when that dog eventually escapes...?  

So far June has been warm & sunny during the day, & cool overnight with low humidity during both times. The dog days are just around the corner though.... 



End of transmission...

Manic Gibberish #2: Not Fond Of Yardwork...

As a homeowner, yard work is one of the many responsibilities that the homeowner must take care of to keep the local authorities at bay. Mowing the lawn, not a big deal. Weeding, edging or other backbreaking labor to make a yard look like some manicured golf course should come under the heading of slave labor. Anyone who tells you they think gardening, IE, weeding is some nice, meditative task has never spent a long hot summer doing commercial landscaping. That cured me of any illusions that I wanted to "garden" for a living.  Maybe there are some who in spite of spending a summer (or perhaps many summers) doing back-breaking labor (in rich people's yards) still find gardening a calming & meditative practice, but I ain't one of them...
Some weedy, overgrown mint slowly taking over my dilapidated fence.
I someday would like to move to the desert...

Manic Gibberish #1: Resurrection...

Decided to start, once again typing words into a blog post as I originally did when I first started "blogging" about 11 years ago. It ended up being a lot of angry rants about how "I hate my life" or the occasional witty observation about something but mostly the former. I eventually stopped writing blogs & posting drawings & comics but now feel like typing stuff again. I'm committing to a paragraph a day--whatever that is--a few sentences at least I suppose. It could be about anything.  It will mostly be my solipsistic perspective. Extreme subjectivism. Not worrying about style, form, grammar or spelling... It may or may not be as interesting/uninteresting as my comics which I've been a roll lately posting EVERYDAY. Compared to those, this should be a piece of cake since I've set the bar really low--which I try to do for everything in life... Of course the voice in my head in the form of the Drill Instructor in the movie Full Metal Jacket is saying:

Also, many of the links along the side may lead to nowhere or are seriously outdated. Sounds familiar...
