Ha! I should have known. Hope he loses. He always does.
Here’s Linda Ronstadt
Charity begins at home, it’s better to be giving than receiving, and Sobriety isn’t that easy !
Marvelous must also be running!
Funny one today… didn’t see that one coming! They’re on a good streak lately, no reason to do any reduxes lately!
I answered a bunch of posts on Andyman (AKA SuperAndy )yesterday, late.
That Vicar never sure asks a lot of nosy questions; does He ever listen? to ANYone?!?And how many winners has He picked lately, anyways1?!
zWonder how the Vicar’s hair turned white . . .is that Andy’s true colour, too? He’s 100+ now, or so . . . and let’s not get started on th’ ol’ Battleaxe. eh? That dew rag is there for a reason, and it’s not to indicate an eminent trip to the Beautician.
Soppy Sales? Here He is with Partey Hartley Bear; Newcastle’s Ale-swilling Ursine from Hartlepool Forest.
The trouble with Andy is, too polite.He wants to give the Vicar the slip, and has a smart-remark always at-ready.Florrie’s a tad-more direct about unwanted Natterers in the Hood. Something about an ugly competition between standing Horses and unmended Fences needing watering, or summat.Anyways, She get’s the point to His Point:
Andy is probably talking about what’s on the menu today. You go to the races to see your food before you eat it these days.
Sometimes the Vicar’s obsequiousness borders on malfeasance of Office. That is, if the silly Twit had any authority over a decent working Couple like Flo and Andy who seem to have fun toying with the clueless @* Here he’s caught red-handed during a Home invasion, trying to spread His word where It’s not welcomezoom Florrie seems quite content now that the Git has been put in his place. Doesn’t She look proud of Her shrimpy defender?02 Aug 1966
So he has. He’s just deciding what the horse d’oeuvres will be.
Poor Vicar – he had such hopes. This one is too funny but typical.
Oh Vicar… Don’t get your hopes up like that.
What happens if the horse loses, Andy? Will you lose all FAITH?

I enjoy your presence here. I got stuff to do alright, but not rushing in a hurry to get it done. Been looking at some other folk’s fan made sci-fi stuff and of course, time spent here. Nice and warm out today. I plan to go see the Hippy Buckaroos later at the coffee shop. See you Sunday, if not sooner.
Was the fan made Sci Fi stuff good? If you managed to see the ‘Hippy Buckaroos’ (Cool name!) then I hope you had an awesome time.
My day is going well so far. I hope yours is too.
What will you be doing?
To be continued… (Saturday)
B m -aloney draws masonry far better than Andy’s Face, certainly.
Andy’s horse finished first in the third race.^That’s great!^Not really…It was running in the second race!
It doesn’t matter who won. Sobriety lost the moment another batch of beer finished brewing.
Didn’t the vicar always call him “Andy” back in the old days?Andy doesn’t really deserve an honorific (unless maybe it’s “Your Drunkenness”……….)
@Number SixWhere, oh where did the Mad Capps go, oh, where, oh where can they be?@MikeyjNice Hart impression but it was always Wiley’s Bar, not Peter’s, in all the ones I ever read. I second Chalkeye’s request for a Tumbleweeds Andy!
Maybe next month, Ainsley.
I’m glad you’re liking the Pogo’s. It’s my pleasure to post them.
Is Ainsley Percy’s surname?
No; I know that Cloth-bearer’s obsequious; always trying to butter People up with that silver tongue, but here He’s still using the honorific.z
Guy gives Me the creeps. Look where his Hands are! Would you trust this Guy with yer Children?!?
Really?Our Starlet has a name? Lemme guess . . ..is it a . . . .Number? ;)
“I am not a Number,I’m a Kat Human Being!!!”…and if I had a mouth, that’s just what I’d say!
Maybe Jeff Beck, Nils Lofgren, Eric Burdon, John Mayall, Ian Hunter, Lou Reed, Jefferson Starship, David Bowie, Whitesnake, Sammy Hagar, Michael Schenker, UFO and Journey know something Frank didn’t?!? Dunbar is ranked by Rolling Stone as the twenty-seventh greatest drummer of all time. [messenger, etc.][not Keith, Bonzo or Ginger? tsk tsk tsk]
Speaking of Pogo and Kelly: Much of Kelly’s work was political satire relating to the politics of the time, mostly 1950s & 60s. Many people didn’t understand it then and almost nobody now. Most of it is over my head. The Sunday color strips were more apolitical. I don’t have access to many of his dailies. Some of his work I have posted was from books and not newspapers. Needless to say, if Kelly were still around, he would not be a Republican.
Btw, welcome back Chalk*E*ye
I feel like a large breath of fresh air has penatrated Gocomics with a certain party back in the fold.
Score another for the Cartoonist from northern TransAmericaz"now I know, too.
That resulted in the 4 album set including “Grand Wazoo” and “Filmore East”.Have you read Franks auto?
Oh dear, I forgot to mention Buggerlugs and Linda Dean. I am so sorry. One should never forget family. Please forgive my faux pas. None of y’all in Club Capp get into anything while I’m out. Y’all heard me.
And here I thought Andy was making sacrifices for Lent. Silly me!
Red Cover; lost in the stax somewhere. Maybe Warner Bros has that under contract, still?Frank’s auto is what I’m quoting on the “Mercury and Hammers” “Cigarettes are Food” and “Opportunity is an excuse for adultery” quips.
Good luck John!
Nice. How about a drawing of Andy as Herge would have drawn him. (yeah, I’m a Tintin fan.)^^As a French-Canadian, I grew up with Tintin; but, I’m not sure how Herge would really make Andy look different…other than using REALLY thin lines! (I’ll think about it)
byw, Herge is really the cartoonists initials, reversed: Her® ge(G) = Georges Remi
Talk about a communicatios snafu!
Before Comics.Com merged with GoComics, my username was Herge!
I’m so sorry about earlier… I thought you were having a go.
I didn’t mean to be rude.
There will be a slight delay with The Mad Capps as I have just literally run out of ink!
That’s the weirdest question mark I’ve ever seen…
Ha ha that’s adorable.Ever notice everyone here likes you?ever wonder just why? dont!
I’m hoping this is another of those rare forums that people re-visit later in the day….
Cos I didn’t have a chance to get here before bedtime, and it’s always late when I come back.
But I wanted to say thanks to Numbers Three and Six for the welcome, the other day…and apologise for the fact that I seldom stop by.
I read Andy Capp every day… even though I waaay prefer the character from the Smythe strips of years ago to this tame new Andy.
But I spend a lot of time on a couple of other busy forums and this is another time-intensive one…and sometimes it’s just too hard to keep up with everything.
I can’t follow some of the conversations because I haven’t been around to see the beginnings….I will try to pop in a little more often, though…. maybe I’ll get up to speed one day.
Number Three, BTW — if not coding… ie programming, HTML, etc… I’m quite curious as to what sort of tech subjects your certificate comprises.
Do you know hardware? Software? I’m always looking for people who know things!
And yes, Chalkeye… glad you got back and seem to be doing better!
And Gweedo…. You should try messing with Paint sometime… I believe it’s all Chalkeye uses as well….and you’ve already got it so the price is right!Not sure about others who post their work here, as I’ve missed those conversations.The secret is that you can open any picture in it, not just those you “draw”…and then alter it by drawing, copy and paste, etc…and, obviously, bring in parts from other images.
Several of us peek in through the evening. Nice to see your cheerful face!
Your’s too No. 3!
And Gweedo… if you’ve posted this before for No Three or the rest of the curious, I’m sorry….
But here’s a look…(not great sound recording but the other I found was worse….)
The Hippy Buckaroos
Hi Bev…. I bet you’ve posted it though, haven’t you! LOLDidn’t think of that. :)
MikeyJ…I didn’t know so much of your work was original…nice.
The Hippy Buckaroos? Nope. Not me. Don’t think they’ve been posted here before. I’m not familiar with them.
Thanks again, all. I know several of you helped me get back [I didn’t know I was even ‘gone’ before six mentioned it] I’m a real Person, not an alias; i’m in the white pages under CA &, even. and Ling could spot My House, so . . . . laugh for/with/at me, please!!!z
taken about 25 lbs. [a Year] ago? I went mod and have maybe an inch Hair, now.
The job does require a bit of skull greggery, yes . . . and a left turn @ Albitukey
I’m sure this Clown [no offense, Susan Sunshine][really], but next Sunday is too soon for this delusional social Epiphysical. so, until the next time, another reason Andy ‘enjoys’ Percy’s company morezoomThis Guy could lead Florrie to [the] Drink
