Dusty Needs To Chill!

If Dusty is going to capture Bunny's heart, he really should take a different approach. Sure, a little humor never hurt, but not when it becomes obnoxious. Hey Dusty, it's "time" to buy Bunny a dozen roses. I bet that would go a long way :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hey Pam-Pam, are you out there? As I said before, I have always been an optimistic person, so I am going to assume you come to my site every now and then. At least you better, you stubborn girl! Anyway, I have one questions for you. What are you going to get me for my birthday on Monday?  I know you must be giving this a lot of thought. Let's see, what is Pam-Pam going to get Crazy Ninja for his birthday? The only way to figure this out, is for me to try to think like you. Ready? :-/ (that's me thinking like you). So far, nothing. Let me try again. :-/ My God this is tough! When I think like you my brain gets scrambled.  :-/ Wait a second, I got it!! Nope, I lost it. One more really hard try :-///////////////// Ah-ha!! I definitely got it now!!! You are going to send me an email wishing me a Happy Birthday!!!!! Wooooohoooooo!!!! I am soooooo excited!!! Finally, an email from Pam-Pam!!! Let me make sure I am getting this right. :-/ Yep, I am!! I can't wait!! This is going to be the best birthday ever :)))))))))))))))))))))

One More "Dirt" Cartoon....

Soot loves cigars. The way he smokes them is quite interesting, but he loves them nonetheless :))

I Am Healing Fine!

Thanks for all your emails wishing me a speedy recover after my operation. I appreciate your thoughts :))  I am doing fine. I even stopped by the office yesterday and did some work. Anyway, the above cartoon is one that features the "Dirt" characters again. Rock takes orders from Drit and he is good at what he does. His reputation of being an enforcer is all true. Don't mess!

All Is Good!

Late Saturday night, I started getting sharp pains in my abdomen accompanied by a low grade fever. I stuck it out for a while hoping it would pass, but at 3:00am I drove myself to the hospital.  My fear was my appendix was acting up and I was right! The worst thing to do would have been nothing. If an appendix bursts, lots of bad things can happen. So, around 11:00am on Sunday, I had surgery.  Everything went well and they released me from the hospital today. I am very sore right now, but I will survive. Through the whole ordeal, I met many wonderful people at the hospital. Of course there were family and coworkers who were by my side every step of the way too. It are times like this when a person realizes how much people care.  I feel truly blessed :))

Don't Mess With Dirt!

For those who are new to Dust Specks, the 'Dirt" characters (from left to right in the first scene: Drit, Soot, and Rock) are the thugs of the cartoon. As Drit states, "Dirt can make anyone talk." By the looks of it, I would have to agree.

So Sad!

Bill Cosby was such a great comedian and truly loved by most....until the truth came out. Such a tragic end to an American icon. My thoughts go out to all the women he victimized. I am so happy justice has been served and Mr. Cosby will spend the rest of his days behind bars. Amen!

It's that time of year! Allergy season.  I typically don't get effected by springtime allergens, but I know many who do. When I was young, my dad used to sneeze multiple times if the pollen count was high.  I remember my brother and I counting how many sneezes he would rattle off in a!  As my dad got older, the pollen doesn't bother him as much, so our "sneeze count" game is a thing of the past. I am sure my dad couldn't be happier :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hi Pam-Pam.  Are you out there? It's 8:00 pm here in Connecticut and I am watching the New York Yankees play the Minnesota Twins on TV.  For the most part, people from Connecticut like three professional baseball teams (depending on where you are located in the state).  If you live in Northern Connecticut, the team people root for is typically the Boston Red Sox (boooooo!). If you are from Southern Connecticut, people like either the New York Mets (boooooo!), or the New York Yankees (yeahhhhhh!!!). Obviously, I am a Yankee fan; I have been since I was young and I enjoy taking the train into New York to watch a game at Yankee Stadium.  At this time of year, the weather can be chilly, so I usually wait until May to go. I remember writing you one time saying how great it would be to go into NYC with you.  Maybe you can join me at a Yankee game someday!  The best one to go to would be the Yanks vs. the Red Sox.  There are many awesome rivalries in sports throughout the world and the Yanks vs. the Red Sox is one of them. Is it a date?  We would no doubt have the time of our lives :))

Back To The Cartoons!

I hope you like the cartoon I posted :)) Kids are cute, but if you don't watch out, they'll throw-up on you! Speaking of kids, I have been shopping around my children's book manuscript to literary agents.  Getting an agent is a tough task because of the competition. That won't stop me though! Also, my artist (Terrice) has been busy with school and work, so he hasn't been able to draw. Once I get some book illustrations from him, I will post them. Have a nice day!  -Tom

We are home!

That was a long drive!  Over fourteen hours to be exact. Armani slept a lot during the journey. She actually was feeling a little car sick. One of the best parts of the ride was when we could see NYC at night. I have seen the view lots of times, but it never gets old. Even though we had a nice trip, it is good to be home :))

Armani Likes Coastal Carolina University :))

Out of all the colleges Armani visited, she really likes Coastal Carolina University the best.  I just had to post one picture of her on their campus. Now the only thing she has to do is get accepted! I'm keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed.  Her mom plans to visit a few more schools with her, but I think Coastal is going to remain her #1 choice.  As always, I enjoyed spending time with my little girl :))
