another visit to the library..

Looks like a visit to my local library ended up into a book buying fiasco. As many of you know, I love books. My interests are wide and varying, so when an opportunity presents itself, I purchase extremely reasonably priced (ie, cheap) books. This little book sale’s gem include the following;

child’s family photo response to Doug.

A few days ago I wrote about the hysterical, GarfieldMinusGarfield site and a number of people have told me how much they enjoy this ‘new’ take on an old classic. So, in order to put a smile on your face, I give you one of my absolute favorite, smart, single panel comic, simply named, ‘Bunny.’ […]
