You may have been wondering . . . “Hey Mister – Buddy . . . what is up with all of the ants – and seeming lack of effort . . .” or something like that – and you will seriously have to excuse me for this typing – as my elocutioner is all but kaput for the moment . . .

Well – 18 (eighteen) days ago – I was in a meeting – and the goal was to design – make all of the content – and build a website by June 17th (Father’s Day) . . . and then it was bumped up to this morning at 6:00 a.m. It has all kinds of stuff that I have never played with (much) – like this and that and that and this . . .

In the past 3 (three) days – (I can’t remember before that) – I have ended up working 21 hours, 18 hours and 14 hours. I am the sleepiest bear in the world . . . and will blame the lack of enthusiastic hype in this post on that.

Anyway – if you get a nickle – go look at the latest in (my) site building.

Now – I go to work!

Go go go to this website!

It is for Daily Constitutional . . . a nice little magazine (that is growing all of the time) . . . that is made by some of my nice little friends (a squirrel, a turtle-dove and a bevy of cheep-monks).

Seriously – if you get a chance – go and see what there is to see – which is almost all of it. Let me know what you think . . . we were going for a very very spare spare look (look).

And – I will admit right here and right now – that a tiny bird told me what to put on the left hand side . . . it looks true true good.

I (kind of) forgot to say that I made the site . . . oop.

If you have had a tiny feeling deep down inside that the posts have been a bit skimpy for a quick minute around these parts . . . then I only have one person that I can blame. He hyperventilates, jumps around a lot and has tufts of white fur.

Yep – yep – yep – you guessed it – there is an all new cartoon featuring everyone’s noisiest poodle pal . . . Doodle Poodle. Evidently there is some sort of a basket involved – but that is all that I am allowed to say. Voice Man forced me to sign a nondisclosure contract – and he doesn’t mess around.

So without further to do . . . as Voice Man would say . . . “Let’s see what Doodle Poodle is doing ri-ight now!”

That Doodle Poodle is the crazy!

Did I tell you guys that I have a little comic strip in a magazine?! The magazine is called Daily Constitutional – as you may have guessed from that there picture picture at the top up there . . . and the comic is called “The Island.”
[As you maybe could have imagined] It is all about some tiny/silly animals. They live on an island (is this all coming together now)?! And they do some things and talk about some stuff. The two main characters are a pig (named “pig”) and a giraffe (who almost definitely has a name all of his own). Pig has a crush on a penguin (who is named “receptionist”) who happens to work at the hot gallery around town. Everything was going around swimmingly (in the first two comics) until the third – where some serious stuff started to go down. Some seriously serious stuff – for serious.
Here is an article at the about the magazine Utne Reader – so that is nifty . . . really everything about pretty much everything is pretty nifty.

Hooray for John Henry Blatter and Derek Cote (the two guys in chiggity – chiggity – charge) for putting out their magazine and also for allowing me to pursue my never ending desire to do more work based on the lives of tiny/silly animals . . . it is what I live for.
