Yeah she was spoiled, but not THAT much!

Olie was special, but she didn't get steak unless it fell on the floor. She was quite happy with the T-bone.

Keep Off

"Walk on the grass, it was meant to feel.."
Unless of course it's been treated for weeds.

Now Entering Personal Space

The Personal Bubble Space is a strong reflex for me. It takes a surprising amount of effort to not move.

James Meets Olie

Whenever someone came over to visit, Olie would go and grab a shoe. She would hold the shoe in her mouth until someone came and took it from her. We started calling it "The Welcome Shoe."
Today is both James' and Craig's birthday today! Happy Birthday to my brothers-in-law! Hope you both have a most excellent day!

Stubborn Kids have Stubborn Parents

We have a picture of this.
Happy Belated Father's Day to all fathers out there! May you parent wisely!

Why hello...

You've gotta lock yourself in a room if you don't want to share.
Chippies, is what Chris started calling potato chips when he was little. It was (I believe) a combination of the word "chips" and "please". Or it could be some other reason, either way, it is now a word many of my nephews and nieces still use.

Nature is Neat

Wolverines are crazy! They can cover mountain ranges in a day, take down deer and eat pretty much whatever they find. Also male wolverines are good dads and help raise the kits. They are awesome.

She ALWAYS brings her "A" game

Jeanne don't take no guff from nobody. Apparently that dude was trying to start something her whole presentation, and each time Jeanne shut him down.
It's Jeanne's Birthday on Tues! Happy Birthday to my sister!

The Creative Process

This happens quite a bit.
I decided a while back that if I don't like the way a comic is turning out, I won't draw it. Not in the sense of throwing a temper tantrum because it's not turning out, but more like, "nah, I'm not feeling it and you can tell just by looking." Most the time the script/joke doesn't make it past the thumbnail (which is part of why I make thumbnails) but a few odd times I've gotten all the way to inking the comic before I decide it's not working.

Oh Look! Food!

Don't worry, Tristan still gets his fair share.
Sorry for missing Monday's comic. I got really sick over the weekend and only had energy to drag myself to the washroom, repeatedly. I'm still feeling ill, but am gradually getting better.
I missed a lot on the weekend because of this stupid bug. Including Aiden and Tristan's birthday! Fortunately they are still too little to hold this against me. So, Happy Belated Birthday's to my twin nephews!

Teddy Thief

This is apparently how I got my first teddy bear. I don't know that I ever stole my brother's teddy. Possibly because he had a stuffed dog, and possibly because taking that away from him would've been a fight within itself.

Good Morning

In one way or another, John would sometimes get Olie so riled up that she would come running into my room, jump on my bed, and usually land on my stomach and then immediately lick the entirety my face first thing in the morning. And people wonder why I'm not a morning person.
Today is John's Birthday! Happy Birthday my little-brother-who-has-been-taller-than-me-since-high- school.
