Hi!

Sorry, but there have been a few problems beyond my control that have kept me from putting out a cartoon last weekend.

the-monarchy-strikes-back-901 Sometimes health issues are totally out of our control — as are the tests those issues require us to go through that wear us out. Sometimes it seems like life provides one obstacle after another. At least I was able to find the problem and repair (somewhat) that chair of mine.

BTW I included the picture above which is a part of the work in progress on “The Monarchy Strikes Back”.

Gnorman 2bI’m looking forward to getting some more cartoons ready to publish!.

Happy American Thanksgiving Day!

Have a great Thanksgiving Day to our American Cousins from The Gnome Tapestry!

thanks-giving-tableI hope that you have a safe Thanksgiving Day!. Please be safe on the road. I hear there is snow in many parts of the US so take a little extra time. We have much to be thankful for and I hope that you do as well. One of the best is being able to spend time with family, friends, and other loved ones. I’m also thankful that the “The Gnome Tapestry” has been going on for over 3 years! I have so very many things to be thankful for that I can’t number them.

Thanks!

Gnorman 2bHi!

Sorry, but there’s no cartoon today. I had some setbacks at home today and couldn’t work on a strip today. I plan on being back on schedule for next weekend. (November 26 & 27)

As to the setbacks, an important part of my office furniture broke down on me and I’ll have to see about replacing it, or at least removing it.

If I have a chance, I’ll try publish something during the week.

Upsetting — Wheel Tales of Willow City

upsetting-00 upsetting-01 upsetting-02 upsetting-03 upsetting-04 upsetting-05 upsetting-06 upsetting-07 upsetting-08 upsetting-09 upsetting-10I keep hearing about the polls for elections and what the percentages are. I see the numbers and having had a bit of formal education in statistics and probability understand what they are talking about. I’ll watch them predict one outcome or the other when there are only one or two percent difference between the two choices and I’ll think, “this could go either way.” Then after the votes are tallied I’ll hear them talking about the upset. This is even while the results are saying the two people running are 5 percent apart… or less.

It makes me wonder if the definition of “an upset” has changed.

(Note, I understand that the final results might be very different, but before they are in, while the results were still within 5%, they call it an upset. Of course the outcome of a political election can be very different from the popular vote.)


I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

Thank you!

Lest We Forget

Take a Moment to Remember

remembrance-day-2016This is a day to remember all those who have made sacrifice for others. Take a moment today to remember those who went to war — some never to return, others returning whole or broken; both inside or out. Remember too, in addition to the soldiers, the peace keepers, the first responders and others that keep us safe. Also remember their parents, grandparents, spouses, siblings, children, grandchildren, and all who loved them and miss them.

We might agree or disagree with the wars that have happened, but regardless of that soldiers place their lives on the line for us.

Let us not forget their sacrifices.
