Cartoon: Snowball Ambush

Cartoon of a man about to be ambushed with snowballs

Cartoon of a man looking at a snowball while others are about to hit him. The caption says, “For a moment, Mark was embarrassed. A grown man shouldn’t throw snowballs at neighborhood boys.”

Never underestimate the craftiness of neighborhood kids. Once they see you with a snowball in your hand, all bets are off. You have shown you are willing to tango, and they will make sure they lead! They will make sure any snowball fight you start, will be finished before you can say, “Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea!”

Closet of Horrors


Cartoon of a boy and an older man. The boy says, “I need a Halloween costume. Can I look through your closet?”

One of the nice things I like about the Goodwill Stores is it’s like going through someone else’s closet and finding the perfect costume for Halloween. An added benefit is I don’t alienate my neighbors.

Beneath the Tree

Cartoon of a dog and a treed cat. The dog says, “Come down! All I want to do is talk about taking a bite out of crime.”

I drew this for Illustration Friday. This week’s word is “Beneath.”
