Happy Easter!

For those who celebrate Easter, have an enjoyable day! That includes you, Pam-Pam :)) I am going to my parents' house as I do every year. My mom cooks a honey baked ham and lots of delicious desserts  (such as her awesome poppy seed bread). I am looking forward to it. Enjoy! -Tom

While You Wait...

Any day, I should be getting the color version of the black & white I posted on March 25th. Until then, here is one I never showed you guys. Send me a message and let me know what you think :)) -Tom  4/17/19 Update:  This is an old cartoon and I just realized Dusty is colored brown (the color he was originally until he was changed to grey). I will have my colorizer make him grey and re-post this strip once it is finished.  Stay tuned...-Tom

Just Got Back From Fishing....

Today was Opening Day for fresh water fishing in Connecticut. When I was growing up, I would go every Opening Day with my dad, but I haven't gone in years. If you recall, I went camping last fall in the middle of the woods (yes, it was spooky!).  At that time, I bought a fishing pole and some lures because the campground had  a place to fish. While recently looking at the gear I bought, I got the urge to purchase a fishing license for the 2019 season. Opening Day is typically packed with people. This morning, however, rain kept most anglers home. I even hesitated going when I woke up, but I left my house at 6:00am with pole and tackle in hand, grabbed breakfast at Dunkin Donuts, fed the birds at the local beach (as I do daily), and made my way to a stream recommended by someone in town. Did I say it was raining?  More like POURING!  I didn't let that stop me though.  I hiked down a not-so-clear trail to an area that has a deep river pool. Within minutes, I caught a rainbow trout. Nice size and beautiful colors.  Don't worry, I released him :))  I stayed for a while and then tried another spot up the road. No luck after the first catch, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.  Brought back childhood memories. I'll definitely be going again soon. -Tom

This Just In...

Still Waiting...

My colorizer has been busy with other obligations, but she should have the last two black & whites I posted finished soon.  In the meantime, the above cartoon was never displayed here, so I thought you'd like to see it. Dusty really cracks himself up!  Happy Sunday, everyone :))

Hello Readers!

I am still waiting on the last two black & white cartoons to be colored. Once I get them back, you'll be the first to know :)) In the meantime, I came across the above cartoon and thought you may like to give it a look. Talk to you soon. -Tom

I Agree...

How true those words are. Fear is one of our worst enemies because it can prevent us from achieving our goals in life. Don't let that happen to you. Disregard all worries and go for your dreams. You deserve the best. -Tom

Another Black & White...

Here's another "black & white" which will be colored soon. After this cartoon and the one displayed on March 21st are finished, I will post them right away.  I realize I said this before, but when will Hox learn to leave Bitsy's dust puppy alone?  Unless, of course, he enjoys being choked by Rock!  You best move on, Hox.

An Armani Update!

So far, Armani seems to like North Carolina. For those of you who don't know, my daughter moved to NC last week to experience living on her own. The above pic was taken at a recent modeling shoot before she moved.  I miss, Armani :-(  I know, there is FaceTime and lots of ways to stay connected. I guess I just miss her being around. -Tom

Armani Moved!

Armani decided to move to North Carolina with her boyfriend to "experience life" on her own. Armani's boyfriend knows people in NC who he went to college with. I am hoping it is a positive experience for her.  Love you, Armani. I am here for you whenever you need me :)) -Papa
