Monday , 31, August 2015 Comments Off on Mt. Rushmore Of Comic Book Artists – Part 2

Note: I originally wrote this as a single post, but it turned out to be much too long for a single reading, so I divided it up into 4 parts; 1 for each artist. Part 1 contains my intro to the article (which you may find helpful if you have not read it yet) and […]

Sometime late yesterday, Thursday, August 27, 2015, this blog crossed the 10,000 visitors line! In reality, that’s not all that great. It’s taken 2 full years to reach that number. Most popular blogs do that number in one week or even one day, so I know the reality of that number. But still, it’s a […]

Note: I originally wrote this as a single post, but it turned out to be much too long for a single reading, so I divided it up into 4 parts; 1 for each artist. Someone raised the question of who I would choose to be on my Mt. Rushmore of comic book artists. That is, […]

Today’s Throwback Thursday features four favorite females from 2000. From left to right; my step-daughter, Amber; my wife Cindy; my daughter, AnnMarie; and my mother-in-law, Kay. I know it’s hard to believe so much beauty could be assembled in one spot, but here’s photographic proof!

Today is National Dog Day, observed by those of us who love our own dogs and/or any dog. Here’s a picture of our beloved Wolf in March of 2000 when he was a puppy and our sweet Noise. Cindy already had Noise when we met in 1996, but in 2000 she wanted another puppy for […]

Mount Vesuvius erupted, destroying the Roman city of Pompeii, on this date in the year 79. Pompeii was about five miles away from the mountain, and it was a resort town for Rome’s elite.

Cindy and I visited the Lowry Park Zoo in November of 2000. This is proof that back then I was bigger than an elephant.

R.I.P. Yvonne Craig

Wednesday , 19, August 2015 Comments Off on R.I.P. Yvonne Craig

I awoke to the sad news this morning that Yvonne Craig had passed away Monday evening at the age of 78 from metastatic breast cancer that had spread to her liver. The first time I saw Ms. Craig was in 1967 when she joined the Batman TV show’s third and final season as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon. […]

When Cindy and I took a cruise several years ago, the only part of the whole experience I disliked was having to share our evening dinner with six other people we did not know. That’s part of the normal cruise experience, but if it had just been me on the cruise, I would have taken […]

One of the best X-mas gifts anyone ever gave me was a desk calendar containing 365 of Gary Larson’s Far Side comics. I laughed every day of the year thanks to that calendar! Today, we take a moment to say Happy 65th Birthday Gary Larson! Here’s a little background on the man and his comic […]
