I used to post those brightly colored "Beware of Dog" signs on my property even when I didn't have a dog. I see those types of signs as a fair warning to meter readers and a deterrent to ne'er-do-wells. My wife has never liked Beware of Dog signs because in her mind they look "tacky". To get past my wife's objections, I found a work around solution, and made a low key wooden sign that reads "There IS a Dog". Now my wife is happy, and the bad guys have been duly warned. Problem solved.

I would like to say a special "hello and thanks" to all my readers outside the United States. Glad to have you on board!

Everywhere you look there are specialists in everything, but particularly in the practice of medicine. I'm glad there are people who feel inspired to become an expert in... [fill in obscure body part, system, disease, or dysfunction].
Notice the color of the wall in this cartoon. Once again I get to make use of what I like to call "Institutional Green". It's ideal for hospital settings, as well as public and government buildings.

Rocket Science

Before posting, I sent this cartoon to a good friend who works at the Johnson Space Center (NASA) in Houston, TX. She hangs out with rocket scientists all day, and assured me that this was indeed blog worthy. It isn't often that a cartoon gets the official NASA Seal of Approval. This is a very proud moment for me....sniff.... and I'm a little choked up. I need a minute.... so... talk amongst yourselves.

Traffic Stop

I'm quite sure that we are not alone in this big, old universe. The idea that other intelligent life forms exist, does not bother me in the least. If it is ever conclusively proven that Earth has been visited by extraterrestrials, it would not effect my world view or spiritual beliefs. In fact it would only add to my awe and wonder.
