Friday’s Thought – For Children of All Ages

My Favorite Things – The Cleaning Ladies of My Youth

Actually, there was only ONE I really remember.  Her name was Fernanda and she worked for my aunt in the little town of Algueirão outside Lisbon, Portugal.  While we played with her daughter (who was close in age to me and my sister), Fernanda cleaned…

And cooked.

(She was pretty tolerant of our antics, but when we crossed the line, she’d come after us with her slipper.)

But at the end of the day, there was always laughter and plenty of hugs!

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

It was hard to sketch shortly,

Since my subject was portly.

But he posed like a film star,

While enjoying a cigar.

Dark Humor for a Sunny Sunday…

I’ve been taking an (all-day) break it seems from cleaning the house.  But the interruption hasn’t been due to laziness or frivolities.  I’ve been hard at work on my latest cartoon art.  I’m calling this one Death and the TSA.

Here it is in the inked, pre-shaded stage…

And here it is in its final shaded version!

She’s All That…

Full of vim and vigor,

No one’s heart is bigger.

She really lives to eat.

 Yet nimble are her feet.

 

(P.S.  She also happens to be my mom.)
