Thanksgiving Day 2011

We have all been uniquely blessed and are uniquely thankful.  While at the same time our thankfulness is collective. Let us continue in life hopefully and faithfully in harmony with the thankfulness we focus on and honor today.

In a world rich with blessings we are greatly rewarded in countless ways and know that every treasure is really a gift and a reflection little of our own efforts. Our true rewards are from something higher and grander than we can know. We celebrate, we cherish, and we honor our life, our love and our God. We are happy. We are amazed. We are thankful this incredible day.

the subject CARTOONS

“Why so serious?”  The question Heath Ledger’s Joker asks of Christian Bale’s Batman in the most recent “Batman” adventure film is something to consider. Life is grim enough and we need a good laugh or at least to see the irony of all things as an essential of survival. There is always a bright side and the cartoonist is looking for that thing that amuses even in the bleakest times and subject matter. There is a season and time for all things and humor is found in most situations especially when viewed with a little distance.

  The cartoons on this blog are originals from my archives and they range from the editorial to the simply absurd. They go back as far as the nineteen eighties and some are contemporary efforts.  I’m hoping you will be amused and able to take something from them. The worst thing that anyone can do is over analyze and often to even analyze is pointless to this art form. These “Toons” should speak for themselves as hopefully they speak to you. Enjoy,embrace, connect with them on some personal level…and at best even “LOL."
