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

    The point isn’t the meanings…

    (Good thing, cos I think “mercery” is kinda obscure and archaic)….

    but the sound….



    Mark already listed all the words I  can think of that actually rhyme with nursery…

    Sorry…. but any other attempts just get…. you know…. worser-y and worser-y…

    Hi everybody!

    It’s been a long couple of weeks… but things are slowly getting back to normal….

    and I’m finally able, tonight, to find us a place to post our comments on

    the July 8th  2018 “CLEO and COMPANY”


    Most of you know how to find it on Sherpa… but for anybody who’d like a link…


    I’m not sure I’m up to a visit to a new place tonight….

    would it be OK if we went to my pie shop?

    You can all have a slice on me….

    I especially recommend the blueberry, or the blueberry cream (it has a graham cracker crust, a layer of pudding under the berries, and whipped cream on top)…

    Blueberries are in season, huge and sweet.


    But of course, we have all kinds of pie…. and if I say so myself…. all delicious.

    Even the kinds I wouldn’t make for myself, like rhubarb, pecan, and key lime…. but other people say they’re good…. and they’re very popular.


    If you pass Vernon on the sidewalk…. don’t be afraid.

    He may look kinda…. um…. I’d hate to say “weird” …. let’s go with “intimidating.”

    But from what I hear, he’s very spiritual, and the worst he will do is try to have a rather confusing discussion about such matters…

    you can just say “Gottta run.”

    Cleo’s peaceful resistance is particularly notable.

    I’ve never seen the Lion King either….

    But the cultural references to it are everywhere, so I got the joke.


    I’ve never seen Finding Nemo, either…… or Shrek, or … I dunno….. most of that stuff, I guess, from the last 20 years or so.

    It’s not a crime.

    But for me, it’s hard to miss their incorporation into parodies, comedy routines, advertising, clothing, lunch boxes and toys.

    Steve… I didn’t actually see your image (the first time, before you deleted it.)

    I saw Stel’s response, which was obviously in reference to something you’d posted….

    But I couldn’t see what she was talking about, so I reread your posts, and even looked on the day before….

    thinking I was so tired, i just didn’t get something that everybody else (or at least Stel) could see….

    And/or I was losing it.


    Then I realised a post must be missing…

    And later you reposted it.

    Btw… No reason not to be proud of your work!


    And yeah, there were some amazing birthday parties, including several for me for which I’m still grateful….

    plus some holidays, parades, a couple of baby showers…

    The Monkey’s election, as Sheriff of Ballard County….. almost-but-not-quite coincidentally on his birthday, Aug 21st 2012…

    was, I think, the first huge event,

    with Stel and me secretly on the phone for hours, helping each other with pictures and timing.

    Dozens of altered images… speeches… everybody chiming in with votes… it was amazing to us…..


    And not only is all that work and cooperation from those celebrations gone,

    GC didn’t even leave the “dead” links so people could copy and paste them.

    They’re only a bit of text once the html is no longer supported;

    I never could understand their deleting them.


    Luckily, people are learning to either copy and paste or use Neil Wick’s codes to view images again….

    Not so many people (yet), or a large enough percentage of the commenters in a forum, that I can justify spending two days on a cake again (yet)…

    But I do sometimes re-post a few images I created back then, like birthday cakes, Tiki Bar meals, and brain bleach tablets.

    Ahh, nostalgia.

    Wait for me… I just gotta find a big basket!

    Don’t blame the dog…

    It isn’t his fault.

    He was framed.

    The humans care about Frisbee golf….

    The dogs just chase those those round things hoping to catch a plate of ribs.
