I have dog visitors this morning. Here are some photos I took.

While I was at Moe's Mexican restaurant last weekend I took a spy photo of this very young couple who could not keep their hands off each other.

Here's a doodle of the girl of this couple, in glorious living technicolor. She was thoroughly enjoying that slurpee.

I have been marveling that something I planted actually grew. These are some funky colored sunflowers.

A cartoon I drew a while back. I don't know if I ever posted it on here. Ok, I just found it in my post from July '06. Well you all get to enjoy it once again.


Can you guess which kid is me?


I enjoy adding watercolor to my doodles. I should do it more often.


Every time I meet someone named Janet, this song gets stuck in my head.

beware of attack birds

These are the barn swallows that are guarding their nest on my front porch. Even if I stand in front of the glass door they start swooping down at me. Somebody did manage to leave a package on our porch yesterday. This should not go on much longer; those baby birds have been practicing their wing-flapping all week.

a doodle a day is good for your health

A doodle I drew today while waiting in a long line at the post office. Gotta use the time somehow, when you're standing in a line waiting to mail a book you sold on for a dollar and ninety-five cents.

It is not easy to draw standing up. I'm not sure whether this individual is male or female.

For some reason I enjoy drawing people's screaming kids. Maybe it's because I find them annoying, but then I find some humor in the situation and it becomes entertaining for me.


These yucky Japanese beetles are chewing my trees to bits. I hope they cannot kill the trees.


I've been working on adding photos to my Flickr page, but then I didn't like it because it charges a fee for more than three folders. So I started a Picassa album. I think I like that better.

More tea stain doodles.

weekly update

It seems someone is walking around this town impersonating me. A couple of weeks ago I went into a Mexican restaurant, and the owner asked me if I was related to so-and-so because I look and sound just like her. Now today, I walk into Starbucks, and a worker there comes out and asks me if I was on the news yesterday. Someone who was on the news looks just like me.

I'll just have to hope she's a nice person and doesn't go around committing crimes, so then I can get picked out of a line-up.


These are the barn swallow babies that live above my front porch. See the two little heads peeking out? There are at least three in there. They look like muppets when they poke out their fuzzy heads and open their mouths.
