Another semi-true story. In the process of moving to Texas I looked at about 30 houses in two months time. My real estate agent was ready to tell me to take a hike before we finally found the right house. To add pressure I was looking at houses and rating them in Texas while my wife was in New York and she’s the one who knows more about what is good or not in a house. I just looked for obvious things like was it about to fall over, in a good neighborhood, obvious leaks, and so on. One night on the phone going over the day’s house visits I could not think of the material that was used to make counter tops and wound up with a cartoon idea.
And no, I don’t expect the Keane family will be contacting me anytime soon to assist with art duties. They’re better off with the young kids filling in.
Well it’s certainly been awhile since I posted anything here and there is a reason for that, be it good or bad. Bottom line, my family and I moved across the country from upstate New York to Texas. While everything involved with a cross-country move, learning a new job and settling into a new life is definitely time consuming, one could make a reasonable argument that I should have been able to post SOMETHING within the last 18 months. Oh well. I can catch up now. So they might be a couple years old now, but they’ll be new to most people. For those of you who were lucky enough read them weekly in The Chronicle it’s a trip down memory lane. Either way, enjoy! And I’ll try to post another cartoon sometime within the next 18 months.
Unless you’re a long time reader this one might be a head scratch-er. For the full story, see “Sad But True” It is actually based on something my son did and I thought it was pretty funny, so give him a writing credit on this one.
