“Breaking Cat News” is one of our newer comics featured in the Oregonian. The guy in charge of picking the comics was initially excited because Georgia Dunn uses watercolors to make her comic. My intial reaction was along the lines of “we shall see.” But it’s quite funny, the cats reporting the cat news. In the time since I’ve been reading it, the “man” and “woman” have added a baby to the household. In this panel, the cats are reporting that the “baby” has become a “toddler”
There have been a lot of essays and musings this summer about the Mental Load women carry. I think this comic nicely encompasses the scenario. For me, the Mental Load is right up there on the list of reasons I will never have a wedding. Also, it’s nice to have a term for something I feel acutely.
Also. Justin Klump! Did you send them the wrong photo? It’s the most logical explanation for what’s going on here. Why would your promo photo not show your whole face?
My friend Sue was in town for NCECA (National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts) and we went to gallery shoes. Aside from seeing my friend Sue (not pictured) a lot of very good ceramic art, (also not pictured) I enjoyed this sweatshirt.
I loved also discovering this mini-bike attached to the back of the truck below. Plus, it reminded me of the time in high school that a bunch of us loaded into Cindy’s family Jeep Wagoneer (aka the Jalapeno Wagon) and drove up and down the Interstate talking to truckers on the CB radio. Lori was really good at it, taking the handle Cotton Candy. We convinced a trucker to stop for a late dinner at the Flying J truck stop with six lovely ladies who all wanted to meet him. He laughed so hard when he saw a table full of giggling under-aged girls waiting for him. Then he sat down and we had a very nice chat about his truck driving life. He liked driving trucks better than the desk job he had before.
