Too Late For Blogging

March 2, 2012

All day long I was planning to blog if I could just get a moment, but now….

Late Night Drive

February 16, 2012


Late night drive. No blogging! Luckily, I wasn’t the one driving. (Poetic license in drawing.)

Going Out To Dinner Straight From Work (Not Ready)

As a child of the sixties,  a child
of a child of the Depression, it is hard
to feel deserving of a dinner at
a fancy restaurant, even if
paying for it,
without running home first
for a shower,
freshly-washed hair.  Eating
out requires
clean hair, at least until
a first glass of wine.

(I’m going to tell it to the G-man.  AND while you’re at it, check out NOSE DIVE , comic novel bargain on KINDLE and AMAZON.)

How To Draw An Elephant (And Also Procrastinate)

July 16, 2011

Some people will do just about anything to avoid cleaning their apartment.  (I think, after spending several hours on trying to properly upload some version of the above cartoon, that perhaps I am one of them.)

Or perhaps I am just not cut out to become an online animator.

The drawing part is fun, and, in my rudimentary case, quick; the music is fun; putting them together is fun.   But getting them from your digital device to Youtube can be a real pain in the you-know-what.  Sound gets cut off, drawings get cut off.  And unfortunately, some of us (the same people who delay cleaning the apartment, perhaps) get really impatient with online “answers” to technical questions on twitter forums.

So you have to keep on experimenting, uploading and uploading to get what you wanted or once had on your own little iPas, but somehow somehow cannot make come out in a bigger forum.

The good part is that, soon enough, cleaning the apartment doesn’t sound so bad.

Have a nice weekend.

Not exactly Robin's egg.


Many wonders–as in bare sidewalks, sun, snowdrops(!)–now to be seen in Battery Park City, NYC.

Salute To Oscars (With Elephant).

February 20, 2011

Much has been made of Patton's devotion to his pit bull Willie (a/k/a William the Conqueror), but little is known of the General's wider ranging animal interests.

This is not really an old favorite, but when thinking of old Academy Award winners, image (modified) came to mind….

Enjoy the day.
