My avatar was drawn for me by rOdd Perry, the artist half of the original BREVITY Comic team ( http://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.

    Oh wow…. there is one…..

    Warren Jeffs’ father! Yikes!

     

    Meanwhile…… Hi…. and welcome to the Cleo and Company forum.

    Don’t be a stranger!

    They got those pent-up Angus blues.

    Hi, all!

    Today we’re commenting on a beautiful poster by StelBel….

    in the Feb 19th  2019 “CLEO and COMPANY”

     

    on Sherpa http://www.comicssherpa.com/site/feature?uc_comic=cscwy

     

    I love Vincent van Basset… the colors, the skies …

    the big blue bowl of bones… his simple bedroom at Arfles.

     

    I agree… hard to imagine him cutting off an ear.

    I mean, dogs often chase their own tails but you never hear of one biting his off.

     

    BTW, I always say we should use ordinary names… suitable for baby boomers, or their parents, when naming Ballard Street characters.

    They’re 70-ish or 80-ish…. not 102… so they’re not all Petunia, Carlisle, Ambrose or Hortense.

    So what do I find today…. “Rulon”.

    Rulon, Jerry? _Really? Who the @#$! is named Rulon?

     

    Many of us here are… um… mature.

    We tend to have names… you know… like Dennis and Susan. Not gonna call out anybody else…. but you guys know if you have “ordinary” names.

    Well… get ready to be the Humphreys and Florences of the 21st century.

     

    I’ve worked at a few retail jobs with lots of young people…

    even in 2008, they thought our names were quaint.

    A 17 year old kid, talking to another about a previous boss, said “you remember… he had one of those old guy names… like Greg”. GREG!

    And he hated his own “old fashioned” name….Scott.

    The rest of the guys were all Jareds and Jasons and Zacks.

     

    Oh… and paper dictionaries.

    I too have trouble with tiny fonts, so I have to hold them close, and even so, my near-sightedness is starting to fail me..I usually look things up online, I admit.

    But I still have a paper dictionary near this chair, several in the um… reading room… and two by my bed.

    After a three week probationary period at JC Penny, a looong time ago, in a gloomy department that took credit payments and returns….

    My supervisor said I was doing well… BUT she’d heard me giggling, and once even laughing with a customer (gasp!), when I was behind the cash register.

    I was “too cheerful” (!!) and she wanted me to promise to “act more serious” in order to continue my employment.

     

    When I said I had no desire to promise, she said….

    “If you refuse to comply, I’ll have to release you from your obligation to work for JC Penny.”

     

    I asked whether I was being terminated.

    She said no…. but wished me well in the many exciting opportunities that lay ahead for me now that I was not obligated to JC Penny.

    She became completely flustered when I laughed.

    He needs to get a new brand of hair jail.

    What he’s been using doesn’t have strong enough hold.

     

    He has very hard-to-control hair… and it’s headed for another brush with the law.

  6. about 7 hours ago on Daddy's Home

    Wow! Tony’s question today is…

    “Do your taxes?”

     

    Gosh… sure… I guess.

    That is just so darn nice of you, Tony.

    Thanks very much for offering!

    I’ll be in touch soon with all the figures, OK?

     

    Meanwhile… sure, Elliott.

    An extra 4 bucks a week…. and then, besides what wldhrsy said, you can buy your own electronics and stuff.

    This isn’t Gary’s first attempt at sidewalk sales……

    Sheriff MonkeyBlues is always sending BatPug or Officer Canine to check Gary’s latest table for permits.

    And sometimes they catch him with a… well let’s say a “trade secret”.

    (Though as acting Sheriff, if I catch him with this one again… he’ll need more than a permit!)

    https://assets.amuniversal.com/dfce3aa039530134973b005056a9545d.gif

     

    Of course, one thing I will say for Gary … he always did like to keep busy.

    Come with me… no escape!"

    Would James’ kittens look just like Leo?

  10. about 20 hours ago on Ballard Street

    Yup…. In the light of day, even though I wasn’t actually up yet, I recognised it as a rerun.

    Even in the wee hours when I made my first post, and thought it was new, I knew I’d seen the windshield wipers before….

    I thought that idea was being re-used….

     

    It was the “bad sign” I didn’t remember.

    Imagine. Me. Forgetting a pun.

    A PUN. Me.

    I’m slipping.
