Nan asked if there was anything she could do while I was spending a week on the phone in the aftermath of the only purse snatching we haven’t seen on the news.
I said the same thing I always say when someone asks if there’s something they can do for me:
“Draw my comic?”
Ladies and gentlemen, a comic drawn by my Nan. Thanx Nan!
Tomorrow is Nanny-Ma’s birthday and the fuzzy babies know how to take care of her! The Fluffy One makes her tea, The Puppy takes care of her feets, and The Slinky one is a radiator of love for his woman.
I say hello every time…just in case.
The smoking cigars and eating shrimp thing comes from my Mum’s reaction to The Spider’s quick costume change in Let’s Rock. My mother, my best audience, thought he was holding a shrimp and smoking a cigar. Love you, Mumby.
What? It’s totally a family song, my Poppy sang it at weddings! I mean…it’s about bells on a string…RIGHT? 😉
One day when I was dopey from my neck pills, my Mum asked me if she could do anything for me. “Can you draw a cartoon?” I asked.
My Mum totally drew one of these comics. I leave it to you to figure out which.
Crunchies with Nanny-Ma are better than any other crunchies in the world!
(And yes, you read that right, Sister The Puppy is in fact the Ninja Twins…aunt?!)
Yes, I do tell this story to literally anyone who will listen.
I should have way more stories to tell about him.
If you can read this, congratulations! We nearly made it out of 2016! Here’s to making it through every day from here on any way you can! See you next year!
I’m sure spirits who invest a ton of energy to visit me are thrilled to meet my furry babies.
Maybe if you look close at the night sky, you’ll see them.
My Aunt Janet passed away last week. She and I shared a love of John Cleese, sewing outfits for our animal friends, and barking at raccoons, among a million other things. Last year she published a story she wrote about her mother-in-law’s life called The Little Girl Who Lived Birds. You can read it here:
Get in touch with the people you love and let them know. Often.
You know my eyes. Cockeyed.
But until that time, you’re stuck with me.
Today is my best friend’s birthday. I would totally get her berries if she wanted some berries.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAN!
Enjoy the berries if you like the berries.
