Party Pooper

I believe it has been a week since the previous update. We don’t want anyone to sprain anything, so we’ll start slowly with a cat cartoon from a mere five years ago this month. I am a person with many irons in the fire. One iron that always remains is cartooning, of course, but sometimes even it rests on the cool edge of the coals while I juggle other irons. Oops! I think I just mixed my metaphors. Then again, maybe not. Perhaps you can take some solace from the frequent times I tell you, “I’ll try to do better,” knowing that at least I mean it.

  1. Is there a protocol as to whether the featured strip will be colored or not if it is a non-Sunday offering?

    Is Gene the Blond a permanent situation? Is there really anything you could do about it, assuming that it grinds your gears?

    Enquiring minds and all that…

  2. Juggling hot irons ranks right up there with juggling running chain saws. Either of those could be my job description, come to think of it.

    That sigh you just heard was one of relief, from the orphans that were about to be locked out.

  3. We have one cat who thinks the litter box is for sleeping rather than taking care of business. No wonder one of the other cats enjoys surprising her in the litter box by jumping on her, even if by some miracle she is taking care of business there. How does that one not stay confused, or regular.

  4. My colleague in our team-taught Lib. Ed. frosh biol. course once was illustrating a pt. in recycling of nutrients by plants and showed a slide of a yard with intense splotches of green grass, referring to it as ‘spot fertilization.’ Then, ‘That’s Spot by the front stoop.’ Peace,

  5. Regard the beer formerly known as Budweiser…

    “Apparently they couldn’t fit ‘Belgian-South African Conglomerate’ on the can.” – David Burge @iowahawkblog

  6. sand: Too bad it’s not permanent. The ‘Budweiser’ name is owned, in Germany and Czech, by a fine Central European outfit in Czech. If you order a Bud in either country, it’s real beer. Here, you can buy it as Czechvar. AB’s temporary change won’t affect my drinking habits any.


  7. emb, I have toured the brewery that is located outside of Prague, full of wonderful old cellars where they store wooden barrels of the wonder brew. They ladle it direct from the barrel into your glass at the end of the tour. Czechvar is an export brew for American distribution. It arrives here filtered, pasteurized, and at a reduced alcohol content. All that said, I do enjoy Czechvar when in the states, but look forward to Euro beers, bar plates and wild boar sausage when traveling.

  8. Debbe, sounds like a fuel filter problem. Also, a can of starting spray has worked a lot of times. Good luck. I’ll be in touch when I have a chance. Debbe, I’ll honk if I see a chicken house, or a chick.

  9. Good morning Villagers….

    Rained and storms yesterday….got pretty bad there for a while.

    The Boss was there yesterday along with someone from The Corp. We’re getting uniforms!! Navy blue ‘scrubs’ and they are building a changing room in the packing room. We come in our street clothes and change there, new bio-security protocal. The only thing constant in life is change 🙂

    Jerry, thanks for the suggestion.

    gotta go…….

  10. The only American beer I have ever preferred is Schlitz. I will drink Dos Equis and Red Stripe. Have any of you ever tried Dragon Stout? As a one drink person, I really prefer
    Chivas Regal with a little ice and ice cold water. If I can’t get one of those three, I drink green tea or water.

    God bless us every one.

  11. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. We absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content in your case?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects
    you write with regards to here. Again, awesome web log!

  13. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help
    from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m
    not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Appreciate it

  14. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
