Happy Birthday, Dad!!

My dad turned 86 today!!  Doesn't he look great for his age?  Ok, the pic was taken when he was in  high school, but he is still going strong. Funny, he is 100% Sicilian born on St. Patrick's Day!  Just goes to show you that everyone has a little Irish in them on this day.  Have a wonderful birthday, dad! You deserve the best! Love always, Tom and Armani :))

While You Wait...

The last two cartoons I posted should be colored soon. In the meantime, here's another one for you to check out. Bunny sure loves java! I am not sure how the freak she drinks it, but she loves it nonetheless.  I like java too. However, I can't drink it all the time :(  I can have it every now and then, but if I have a cup everyday, my arms start to It's true, they do. Must be the caffeine. I love the taste and smell of coffee in the morning, but the "tingle thing" I can do without :))

Another Black & White....

Here is a follow-up to the cartoon I previously posted.  I should have the color version any day, so check back soon :))

In Black & White....

I thought you may like to see how a cartoon looks before it is colorized. I should get the color version from Christina any day.  Once received, I will post it right away.  Thanks for checking in :))

Introducing "Geez"

The little guy talking to Dusty in Scene #2 is "Geez." Geez is smaller than a dust speck who will be featured periodically in the cartoon. In fact, the next two strips I will be posting has Geez in them. By the way, is the above cartoon understandable? If not, let me explain.  In the first scene, Dusty is speaking.  In the second scene, Geez is talking to Dusty. I wondered if anyone thought Geez is the one speaking in Scene #1 (he is not).  Just wanted to clarify :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hey Pam-Pam, I'm sitting here on a Sunday afternoon and had a thought. Do you want to come over and watch a movie with me? Do you? Do you? Do you? Now look what you've done! You got me all excited!  Did you say "yes?"  Wooohoooooo!!! Come on over!!! Pam-Pam shows up at Crazy Ninja's door :))  Tommy gives her a HUGE hug!  He is so happy to see her! First, let's make some popcorn. Or, if you want, I can take a ride to the local store (the same store I had to repurchase an onion after I mushed the first one in the food processor while making your soup) and buy whatever snacks you want. Just tell me what you would like and I will get it for you. The popcorn is good enough? Ok, let me know if you change your mind. You pick the movie. Not any movie, you wacky banana! I am not in the mood for a "girl meets boy" flick, so other than that, it is your call.  I will close my eyes while you make your selection. Before you do, let me light the fireplace to set the mood. This is so perfect! You and me watching a movie on a cozy couch in front of a fire while eating buttered popcorn together. What could be better than this? Tommy turns to Pam-Pam, kisses her on the cheek, and smiles. Pam-Pam smiles back. No words have to be spoken :))

Speaking Of Random...

Just like my last post, here is a cartoon that is on the random side. Send me your feedback!  I always like to hear what you think :))

I Had To Post This...

When I got to the office today (which was early, as you can see by the bags under my eyes), look what was placed on one of the lawn areas. Yep, a rhinoceros head! Lol! Go figure! It's actually pretty cool.  I just couldn't resist taking a pic by it :))  Scattered around the grounds of the complex are other sculptures and a courtyard fountain.  I think the rhino head is my new favorite. It's so random!

Anyone See "The Usual Suspects?"

This cartoon is for all you movie buffs out there.  For those who don't know, The Usual Suspects is a good drama/mystery flick with Kevin Spacey and other notable cast members in it. Spacey won the Academy Award for best supporting actor and the movie received an Oscar for best screenplay.  I love the classic "lineup" scene.  The actors kept making each other laugh, so the director finally kept the laughter in the shot.  Below is a link if you want to check it out.  Be forewarned; there is a good amount of foul language!

NYC...Nine Years Later

As a follow-up to the last pic I posted, here we are a few years ago in Grand Central Terminal on Armani's fifteenth birthday.  Time is flying by.

In New York City

I came across this photo of Armani and me in Manhattan (Grand Central Terminal). I sometimes get emails requesting pics of us, so I decided to post it.  I believe Armani was six at the time this was taken. We road the train (Metro North) into NYC to shop at American Girl; a "build your own" doll store that children love. It was an enjoyable day :))

Down, Micro! Down!

Sometimes Micro forgets he is a "dust puppy" and not a dog in the human world. At least he tries :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hey, Pam-Pam, come closer. I feel the need to say something important. I have said many things to you in the past, but I am not sure I expressed what I am looking for in our relationship.  I think you know how much I care about you, but you could be wondering what I expect if you ever write me.  The answer is simple; I have no expectations.  Maybe you and I would be a perfect match and live happily ever after. Maybe we would be good friends who would stand by each other no matter what life throws our way. Or, maybe we would just casually correspond and nothing more.  The one thing I do know is if you never write, our story ends here (that would be unfortunate).  For this reason, I hope you reach  out to me soon, so we can begin a new chapter together. xoxotommy
