LikeLike Reply It never fails to amaze me how much subtlety and depth of comment you manage to get in to such spare (beautiful) drawings and such brevity of text – you really have a gift for this. I do admire your skill! And always enjoy your posts. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Oh thank you! Really appreciate the kind comment. LikeLike Reply I love your depiction of not-square and square thoughts! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you – it took a few tries to land on those (still figuring out how to keep things simple). You’ve got a great format for your comics! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you – the format came about organically, if that’s the word I want – my scanner is very small. I think simplicity is one of the strengths of your pictures. LikeLiked by 1 person And I have to add – I like your pictures awfully (to borrow a phrasing from the Water Rat in The Wind in the Willows)😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Oh thank you :-). LikeLike Thank you – yes, a scanner makes sense … I don’t have one so I take photos of my drawings. It’s not ideal, but I’ve learned to leave lots of white space so I can crop edges that aren’t square. LikeLike Wonderful sketches, and the commentary makes me feel the irritation of Mr. Square Habit and the urge to get away from Mr. Square Thought. (Is he one foot out the door in the next panel?) Or, am I over-projecting? 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Ha! S/he probably is one foot out the door …if the two had been younger, they might have tried to (painfully) muddle through, but with these middle-aged characters, not a chance:-). LikeLike Reply This is VERY funny and acute. The expressions reinforce the narrative. I wish “lol” were not an empty cliche, because I did chuckle audibly!

I recently made a trip to the cannibas dispensary (CA recently legalized pot) and I blogged about it and told friends. I didn’t realize it would turn me into a “pot defender!” Someone commented that they would drive very slowly around the area where the shop is located now that they were aware of it. MY moth open, I said, “huh, it’s across the parking lot from BEVMO!” I bought cream for my arthritic fingers. Marijuana has never been a thing for me, but I’m defending it vehemently. I like to say I lead a conservative, meaning quiet, sedate lifestyle….but I’m a live and let live lady! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This made me smile – thanks for sharing!
