The new voting machines look familiar.

I was going to make few jokes here at the expense of the current presidential candidates, but at this point they honestly don’t need any help.

Things that go “fist bump” in the night.

March 18, 2016

fist bump in the night

I know it’s been a long time since I posted any content on this blog, but my kids are growing up a bit and I find I have (slightly) more time on my hands.

Our youngest child is now three years old.  Unlike many others of his age, he has never resisted his bedtime.  In fact, he has a grand time rushing through an increasingly lengthy string of goodnight sayings to each member of the family.  These currently  include: good night, sleep tight, sweet dreams, night night, I love you, and see you in the morning.

However, the speed at which he rattles these phrases off at makes it sounds more like – “Goodnightsleeptightsweetdreamsnightnightiloveyouseeyouinthemorning!

It is usually the last thing he says before he  closes his door for the final bedtime story and snuggle with his Mom.

However, the other night he opened the door again seconds after closing it.  I waited to see what adorable phrase he was adding to the mix now.

He looked at me with his large ernest eyes and said very quietly, “Our house doesn’t have any ghosts…”

“…anymore.”

The door began to shut again.  Just before it clicked, he cracked it open once more and whispered, “Don’t be scared.

As I said above, I finally have enough time to start posting some new drawings.  Goodness knows I’m not using any of it sleeping anymore.

Not much of a drawing.  Not much of a joke.  BUT… I am very proud of that freehand circle.  Please take a second look at it so it will have been worth the four attempts it took me to get it right.

Soccer hooligans.

May 27, 2010

I went hooligan fishing on Tuesday with a friend.  It was great.  Beautiful weather, very few people, and lots of fish.

LOTS of fish.  I’m not sure exactly how many fish my friend pulled out, but I think in the end he grabbed a few more than me.  This was impressive since I managed to get 252.

I breaded and panfried about a dozen of them for the family.  The bones are so small that they virtually cooked away.  They tasted fine, but hooligan are a “mushy” fish.  People told me this before I got them, but the idea of “mushy” didn’t bother me.

The reality of “mushy” did bother me (It was similar to breaded and panfried toothpaste).  Ick.

“Mushy” also bothered my family.

I have been informed that the remaining 240 fish are all mine.  Ick.

Not-so-easy chair.

I like this one.  You might think that I would be happy when I create a cartoon I like.  Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.  Whenever I really like one of my jokes, it just makes me worry that I’ve seen it somewhere before.

Yes, you can use too much lighter fluid.

Because it is barbeque season, I decided to post the best barbeque sauce recipe in world.  Really!  (It is actually a sauce and a second separate paste, but it is well worth the minimal extra effort.)

Enjoy!

The World’s Best Barbeque Sauce:

  • 2 c. grape soda (yup, grape soda)
  • 2 c. ketchup
  • 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 c. yellow mustard
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 4 TB black pepper
  • 2 TB Tabasco Sauce
  • 2 TB garlic salt

Simmer until thick (but still thinner than store brand) while stirring constantly.

Brush sauce directly onto the meat as it grills.  After sauce has thickened from heat of the grill, add a mixture of brown sugar and vinegar to the meat.  We have never measured the amounts of brown sugar or vinegar – just make sure it is thick.  You can also just do the sauce alone, but it is quite a bit spicier without the brown sugar and vinegar paste.

GI Tract Joe: the educational action figure.

May 9, 2010

Kids love fun so they demand nifty toys.  Moms like learning so they demand educational products.  Companies want to make money so they listen to these demands and create “educational” toys and games.

Moms of the world, we love you – but that doesn’t mean we love toys that make us work to play.  Now you know and knowing is half the battle.

Happy Mother’s Day.
