My avatar was drawn for me by rOdd Perry, the artist half of the original BREVITY Comic team ( www.gocomics.com/brevity/2011/06/03 ), and is (very) loosely based on a photo of me. Thank you, rOdd! Occasionally, I edit it a bit. Please don't blame rOdd for the hats and hair bows.

    Just think, Dwayne….

    better heavy pants and a light heart than the opposite!

     

    Happy x3….

    Just like the rest of us.

    You can celebrate a holy Christmas. if that fits in with your faith.

    As Shirl Summ said. it’s up to you to make it holy, and ignore the commercialism.

     

    But Christmas has also become an international, interfaith holiday, celebrated as a time of peace and joy,

    and for many, even gift-giving…

    if that fits in with your personal ethic.

     

    Commercial and personal spaces are filled with Christmas music….

    with lights and trees and Santa Claus….

    Little children, whether born in a Christian… or Jewish, Muslim, atheist, or any other family,

    are exposed to all of that from birth….

    and have a right to be part of the magic.

     

    I have no objection to anybody’s displays of religious faith OR holiday cheer…

    I was raised in a not-very-observant Jewish family….

    with Christmas, but a secular one, with Santa and reindeer, “White Christmas” and Jingle Bells."

    I say “Merry Christmas,” and I mean it, in my heart….

    you can interpret it in your own definition of Christmas, religious or not…. and that’s fine with me.

     

    Just please don’t fill my world with music and decorations and send me cards professing love and goodwill,

    or put up your displays in public places and fill the mall with Santa and carols,

    and then claim that I can’t share it.

    That would be a denial of everything it stands for….

    in your faith or mine.

    I’m sure juice see what he did there…

    and most of you are raisin objections…

    But kumquat may, I will confess…

    I  think it’s a peach!

     

    Of course… I wood.

     

    Monty LC…. I don’t see a single post from anybody who didn’t get it.

  4. about 18 hours ago on Ballard Street

    Ah, Claude is leaving out the very beginning of the very first sentence….

    the phrase in a tiny font that always precedes the giant “You have won!”

    We can’t make small fonts any more on the comics… I even tested to see if it changed back again after this update….

    So you’ll have to imagine the microscopic letters in which I’m sure it says (bold is mine…)

    " IF yours is among the lucky 100 first entries drawn on Dec. 11th, 2017…"

     

    Here’s the breakdown….

    587,432 entries turned in at the Cuyahoga County Fair,

    added to 5, 432, 618 entries from the rest of Ohio.

    100 winning entries drawn.

     

    One Grand Prize trip to Paris

    One First Prize trip to London

    98 Second Prize Cleveland, Columbus or Cincinnati Bus Tours (depending on street address of winner.)

     

    Odds of winning anything, including a bus tour

    100 in 6,020,050….

    or 1 in 60,200.5

     

    The only thing you are certain to have won is 3 years of free dinnertime phone calls,

    from “Aloha Vacations Unlimited,” plus all their “strategic business partners”.

    Who now ALL have the right to call you because you filled out a sweepstakes ticket at the county fair, hoping to win a free Hawaiian vacation…

    thus establishing a “business relationship” to circumvent the Do Not Call list.

     

    Plus they will sell your number to spammers who don’t care about breaking the law anyway,

    as they use the internet to place recorded robocalls from outside the US.

     

    The moral of this tale:

    Never never never enter those phony contests!

    “What?” is just what I’d like to know.

    Or maybe I wouldn’t.

     

    OK, he’s a middle school kid.

    I know one shouldn’t assume, but I don’t really think he’d be so blasé about a human.

    Still…. I’m just going to sit here with my hands over my eyes,

    hoping all the neighborhood pets and wildlife are accounted for.

     

    PS to J Short, in re yesterday…

    Exactly.

    And not only homework…. any mission assigned at any time by any adult,

    because, as we all knew, or were commanded to believe,

    every adult was right about everything.

    Poor things never even had a chance to get dressed.

    If you carrot all about that baby, please take him furrow way…

    The rest of you, lettuce pray.

    I don’t know why Annie never just says “OK, I quit!” ….

    it only takes them twenty minutes or so to come beg her to come back.

     

    and Dry….

    Glad you got here, and to CD, while it was still your birthday….

    and that it sounds like you had a good day!

    As I posted there, you’re very welcome!

     

    And a belated Happy Birthday, Queen!

    Sorry I didn’t know!

  8. about 22 hours ago on Citizen Dog

    Glad you got here while it was still your birthday, Dry!

    So glad you enjoyed it….. and you’re very welcome!

     

    BTW birthdays are “allowed” on Ballard Street, the same as here….

    just links to pictures, most of which, those of us who use Neil’s “bookmarklets” can see in the forum…

    And no more fancy fonts, or colors.

     

    The problem is, there are far fewer people on the whole site than there used to be….

    Many of the ones on my e-mail and birthday lists have left, including most of the “party helpers” …

    and I don’t have addresses or know birthdays for a lot of others.

     

    But the main reason I put your birthday greetings here, instead of on Ballard Street,

    is that you never go there any more.

    If Poncho’s gotta consider himslf a lap dog, he’s gonna make sure he’s living in the lap of luxury.
