Cartoon: Ace in the Hole

Cartoon of two boys staring at a manhole. Boy says, “Sorry , Mister. At least you can say you were part of a home run.”


There are two activities that let you know summer is here; baseball and construction. It’s a glorious thing when they are combined. It’s also sad to see them come to a close as fall comes upon us.

Let’s hope there are no open manholes at the upcoming baseball playoffs. I’d like to see the Atlanta Braves play the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. I won’t call it a prediction nor a strong hope. If the Cincinnati Reds win a wildcard game, then my strong hope may surface again.


I drew this in Adobe Illustrator CS2
