LOVELY RITA METER MAID! – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango — Meter

I can’t help it. Music jumps into my head when I hear a specific word. And it sits there until I find something else to take up that earworm place in my brain.

Brain.

I got tested for cognition, but they didn’t let me have a mouse. I think I missed half the questions because of the strange device I was supposed to use. Whatever happened to point and click? This was clearly designed for the computer under-achiever. They need to rethink the testing and use actual computer tools for people who actually use computers.

I’m sure Garry would NEVER have passed that test because he’d still be there trying to figure out how that circular twirly device that was supposed to take the place of a mouse was supposed to work. If you don’t come in stupid, the bad design will finish you off!

Meanwhile — Lovely Rita Meter Maid is wriggling between my earlobes. Oh look! It’s dancing, too!

I didn’t bother to add the lyrics. We all know them, right? You don’t? You must be young.

BIRDY, SQUIRRELLY, SNOWY, SQUARE, AND SPIKY — MARCH DAY 8 — Marilyn Armstrong

Birdy, Squirrelly, Snowy, Square, and Spiky – 8

The world? It is full of birds, squirrels, and snow.

The photographs? All square and spiky.

The month is March.

Remarkably, it will be officially Spring in a few weeks.

Hard to believe, isn’t it?

Probably a Hairy because that’s a real BEAK!

Hanging on with sharp little claws

Athletic, isn’t he? And he’s hanging on with his just two feet!

Happy spiky, jagged, pointy, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and barbed’ squares!

COLORFUL WITH MEMORIES OF LAST SUMMER – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Colorful

Sunday (aka the day after tomorrow) will bring, in order, snow, sleet, freezing rain, and finally, rain. I know we had some crocus, but it’s buried under 18 inches of snow.

These are eighteen inches of frozen hard snow. Nothing fluffy or fun about it. I’m hoping the rain ultimately washes most of it away.

So, as you can imagine, colorful is later this year or memories of last year. I cannot bring forth the colors to come, so I shall revisit the flowers from days of yore.

CHECKING OUT? – Marilyn Armstrong

Welcome to Bizarro!

I just bought another one of his books.
Whenever I need a laugh, it’s waiting for me.


I was amused to realize that the website he gave up on was WordPress, but it wouldn’t load or it loaded too slowly for anyone … so between when I wrote this (like two days ago?) and today, he swapped sites. No longer WP. He also has space on Facebook and Twitter. These are hard days for cartoonists with so few newspapers being published.
