I walk our family dog “Shiva” most every day.  She loves sniffing fences, grass, trees and posts of various types (including fire hydrants).  Most times she takes a “little” longer than I would like her to and I give her a slight tug on the leash or say her name to get her to move along to the next smell.  I think from now on I may give her a count of 10 instead of a count of seven.  After all, I should allow time for the comments as well as for the blog post.

[The above image is from the comic strip “9 Chickweed Lane“, which I read most every day at the following site:  http://www.gocomics.com/9chickweedlane
The actual post date was 19 February 2017.  I’m not sure how to create a link to the specific posting.
I do NOT own the rights to the image, I have not asked permission to repeat it, and am I NOT hoping to make any profit from showing it.  It is merely being used because it made me laugh out loud.
If you find the comic amusing, please visit the creator’s (Brooke McEldowney) post at gocomics.com and give it a “like”.   Oh, and click on the image to see a larger version / more readable     —    KMAB]

A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

Hägar the Horrible, the ferocious viking, approached his timid son, who was at the time reading from a considerable volume, and with hands on hips (Hägar) demanded,  “What good are books?!!”
“They tell you things!”  his son replied.
“That’s STUPID!”  Hägar persisted loudly as he stomped away.
Entering a second room, Hägar stopped and upon spying another volume resting on a table, approached it.  He stopped again, clasped his hands in a childishly innocent fashion and looked over one shoulder, then the other.  He again closed the distance between himself and the book, then paused a third time.  He crossed his arms and raised his left hand to his heavily bearded chin in a contemplative manner.  He puzzled over it a moment, bent forward, seized the text and finally raised it cautiously to his ear.
He asked it quietly,  “Hello – – – ?”
[Hägar the Horrible is a comic strip I used to read when I was growing up.  Back then it was written by Dik Browne.  The above “strip” ran sometime in 1973 (I believe).  It was touching, so I transferred it into my journal in text format.  It still makes me smile.    —    KMAB]
