SKETCHBOOK 66 – A FINCH AND A SQUIRREL WALK INTO A BAR

DON’T YOU HATE WHEN THIS HAPPENS?

NEED A LAUGH?

WE ALL NEED AN OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE BETTER
Despite all logic and reason to the contrary, Trump still continues to hunker down in the White House. Does he really believe he can stage a coup and become King of America? Does anyone genuinely believe that? I’m sure there… Read More ›
IS THERE ANY NEWS WITHOUT THE ORANGE MENACE?
Over the past four years, we’ve become addicted to the Orange Menace. Whether you hated or loved him, he was our national — international — soap opera. No longer did we need to wait for an event or calamity to… Read More ›
A DAILY BIT OF HUMOR OF BIZARRO

SOCIALISM ISN’T COMMUNISM — AND WHERE DID OUR SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY GO?
Americans think “Socialists” must be the same as “Communists.” Having lived most of my life in the U.S. (born here, raised here, schooled here as were both of my parents), but also having lived for almost a decade in good… Read More ›
