Happy Thanksgiving

thksgvng1

Not that I’m totally unthankful, or ungrateful if that’s the better term. The opening doodle art is just a cynical joke. Largely true, but cynical. Anyway here’s my…

Top Ten Things I’m Thankful for This Thanksgiving

  1. My brother Craig
  2. By brother Jeff
  3. My brother Brian
  4. Gabapentin
  5. The house didn’t burn down
  6. The neighborhood didn’t burn down
  7. Turkey
  8. Sweet potatoes
  9. Stuffing
  10. Pumpkin pie

Yep, my brothers have been godsends in this most trying year for me. No personal details about that, just take my word for it. Next year will be better, I hope. And pray. Enjoy that turkey, y’all.

I get the stitches out of the pinky finger today. Good-oh. Though it’s still a bit sore, especially if I bang it or something. Still, it is progress.

The latest smattering of rebuses have been exited from the blog and turned into a feature, as per the usual fashion around here. More Beatles song titles than you can shake a stick at. Not that stick shaking is all that much fun compared to rebuses. Whatever the case, get your 1960s pop culture nostalgia puzzle fix at the link following the sample puzzles provided to whet your appetite, pique your interest, or tickle your fancy. Your choice.

Monday the Sixteenth But…

fri13C

Seems Friday the thirteenth never ends! It’s Monday and the furnace went out. What’s next? A tree falls on the house? All I can say is, “#@%*&+!!!”

Filed 11/16/20

OOPS!

fri13B

Turns out Friday the thirteenth was pretty unlucky for your unbending author/ cartoonist/doodler/blogger. (Or is that bending? I don’t know. I’ve never understood what that meant anyway.) The bad luck: I broke a glass tumbler. (I don’t know why a drinking cup without a handle is called a tumbler, either. The last thing you want is for the thing to tumble. Which is what the tumbler in question did. With unfortunate results.)

Now then, a broken glass is no big deal, you say. True enough. Unless you cut yourself on a sharp bit of it, which I did with the pinkie finger of my left hand. After some profuse bleeding and a trip to emergency, I now sport three stitches on same. What can I say but ,“Ouch!”? Though that’s not what I said at the time, believe me. In cartoonese that would be “#@%*&+!!!”

Another anecdote from Reader’s Digest

Losing my father was bad enough. So imagine my surprise when I spotted my name in the obituaries instead of his. I had to phone a friend.

“Did you see the report of my death in the paper?” I asked. His reply…

If you speak doodle this will be pretty darn funny to you. If you don’t talk doodle-talk, it will still be funny, only funny strange not funny ha-ha. Some day I may explain all the doodles and whatnot, but not just yet.

Happy Hallowe’en’en

Funny thing about Hallowe’en (All Hallows’ Eve) most folks celebrate the eve of the holiday, but not the actual holiday. You know, All Saints’ Day. Seems the apostrophe in Hallowe’en got lost along the way, too. As in Halloween.

Anyway, I suppose people just like to dress up in scary/funny getups and wear masks, which isn’t done on All Saints’ Day that I know of. Though the mask wearing part we get to do every day now. By the way, November first is the start of Allhallowtide, in case you didn’t know.

An amusing anecdote from Reader’s Digest:

Believe it or not, I received a check from Medicare for all of one cent. Why, I don’t know, but concerned that some arcane regulation –complete with penalty– would apply for not cashing it, I took it to the bank. The teller looked at the amount, checked the endorsement, and then asked, “How would you like this, heads or tails?”

Night Visitors

Is it supposed to be some kind of art, a study, a colorized doodle, a twilight zone cartoon, or what? Frankly, I don’t know myself. It is a change of pace, something different. And entirely original, not an old joke from a new book. For what that’s worth. But it is animated. Sort of. Nothing moves, the colors change. Waste of time? Maybe. Isn’t that kinda what you came here for?
