A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hi, Pam-Pam!  How's my Wacky Banana doing? Good I hope. By the way, do you still say, "Holy Bananas?" Holy Bananas! You make me smile :))  I forgot why I was writing.....oh, yeah, I remember. Christmas is coming. Since you didn't get me anything for my birthday (boooo!), I am confident you will  make up for it with an awesome Christmas gift (yeahhh!). I don't want to sit around waiting to find out what it is, so tell me. Yes, tell me. I want to know! Come on, spit it out...what did you get me?!! Telllll Meeeee!!!!! Ok, be that way, you stubborn girl! I am patient. I can wait until we exchange gifts. Exchanging gifts with you would be great! I picture us giving each other heartwarming presents we both would love and funny ones too (like the bracelet I said I would buy you for your birthday with a banana charm hanging from it). You would buy me something like a Crazy Ninja doll that kicks and shouts when you press a button. Or, maybe you'd make me a month's supply of Ciorba! Yum! By the way, I am certain my Ciorba is better than yours! Ha! Ok, I am sure yours is better, but mine, without a doubt, comes in a close second! That's all for now, Pam-Pam. Keep smiling :)) oxoxotommy

Yes, Attitude Is Everything!

My daughter, Armani, was looking at my cartoons and said she really likes this one, so I am re-posting it.  Remember, the way we think is very important. Positive thoughts produce positive outcomes. Negative thoughts do the opposite. Attitude means so much, especially if you are in a situation you want to move away from. By focusing on the situation and not the solution, change will never occur. However, if you take an attitude that you WILL find a way to make things right, your mind will guide you to where you should be. Through experience, I know the way we think plays a major role in determining the quality of our lives. -Tom

Dusty Has A Point...

It's funny how a magazine can crown a celebrity "the sexiest male or female alive." Really?! So, there are people working at the magazine who actually go around meeting everyone in the world for candidates and a celebrity, year after year, ends up the winner? Of course not. To be fair, they should change the title to sexiest "celebrity" alive; that would be more accurate. There are plenty of unknown people who are just as (or even more) appealing than the celebrities who win the accolade. Besides, isn't the idea of the sexiest person alive a bit much? Wouldn't it be better to give an award to the person with the biggest heart? How about  acknowledging the people who go above and beyond to make a positive difference in other's lives? Now those are the individuals who should be gracing the covers of magazines :))

Shaved!

I woke up today and decided it's time for a change!  Ok, not a major change, but I shaved my face clean :))  I figured my readers would like to know about this earth shattering event...lol...so I decided to post a pic of the outcome. That's about it. Have a great day :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hi Pam-Pam :)) I want to share something that happened to me at a local grocery store on Sunday. The store was selling a soup that reminded me of Ciorba. I immediately thought of you and the awesome conversations we used to have. I must have been smiling while reminiscing to myself because an elderly woman next to me said, "You look happy." I replied, "Oh, I was just reminded of someone." The woman smiled, patted me on the shoulder, and said, "Hold onto those memories." It was a nice moment :))

In Black & White...

I hate when that happens! Although, it is worse when you wake up thinking you have the day off and then realize it's a work day! Ugh! Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike my job.  I have known the owner of our company for years and we get along great. We were co-workers at a real estate firm after graduating college and we even owned a business together. However, given the choice, I would love to do my cartooning full time or trade stocks (which I do on the side). Until things change, I wake up at 6:00am every Monday through Friday and drive thirty minutes to work (FYI...the picture of me on the left was taken in my office). Hey, it pays the bills and then some, so I'm not complaining. Anyway, I should have the color version of this cartoon soon. Have a nice day! -Tom

OMG!

The little speck in this cartoon is right..."with friends like them, who needs enemies?" It is so important to surround yourself with positive people. When you don't, you end up in the belly of a dust mite (well, maybe not exactly, but you get the point). Speaking of bellies, I need to lose weight after yesterday's Thanksgiving Day feast! I had a very nice time, but eat waaaaaay too much. I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving had a nice time as well. No work for me today, so I am off to enjoy the day! See ya'! :)) -Tom

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

For everyone celebrating Thanksgiving today, have an AWESOME day!  Feel free to call or text your holiday wishes to my cell so I can do the same for you....203 952-5977.  I always like hearing from my readers :)) Enjoy! -Tom

Done For The Week!

Yep, no work for me until Monday! In the United States, Thanksgiving is on Thursday (which most  people get off). The owner of our company gave us Wednesday and Friday off too :)) So, I can chill for five days in a row! My daughter Armani and I always go to my cousin Gina's on Thanksgiving. This year, however, Armani is going to her boyfriend's house. I understand, but she will be missed.  Also, my cousin Billy and his wife can't make it either. They live in Florida which isn't a long flight, but because they were recently up this way for their wedding, the trip would be a little hectic for them. So, even though there will be some people absent, the day will still be enjoyable. I can't wait to see my cousin Adam's daughter (she just turned two in October); what a cutie! Oh, I should be getting the next cartoon back from my colorizer soon, so stayed tuned. Talk to you soon....-Tom

Another "Movie" Related Cartoon...

Ok, I admit, this one is a little gruesome...lol. However, it does show that Dust Specks have to be careful where they settle. For those who never saw The Godfather, here is a link to the scene this cartoon is referencing:

"Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." Classic movie line :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hi Pam-Pam! How is it going? I hope all is well. The purpose of this message is to put a smile on your face :)) What better way than to tell a few jokes?  So, without further delay, here are three for you: 1. Question: Can a kangaroo jump higher than a house?  Answer:  Of course, a house can't jump at all!     2. My dog used to chase people on a bike a lot. It got so bad, I finally had to take his bike away! 3. Doctor says: "Hello, did you come to me with an eye problem?" Patient replies: "Yes! How did you know?" Doctor responds: "Because you came in through the window instead of the door!" That's all for now, Pam-Pam. I hope I made your day a little brighter :))

Intense Movie....

I guess Storm never saw the movie "Taxi Driver." Here is a link to the scene depicted in the first panel  of the cartoon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQkpes3dgzg
Robert De Niro is such a good actor :))
