You never know who or what is outside the door.

This is another of the “Gnomestead Tapestry” Knock, Knock jokes. I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

Thanks!

Another tale from the bar. That’s Captain George! Arrrrrr!.

Cpt George: Greetings Captain George, you want the usual, Rum?
Bar Maid: No Darlin’, I want whiskey, Red-Eye! Leave the bottle.
Scot: Why’s the guy in the pirate hat so blue?
Gnorman: Oh, that’s Captain George. Every month he comes into town and…
Gnorman: …asks the smith if something called a “canon” has been invented yet.
Barkeep: It seems it is important for a pirate ship to have canons.


I wonder where Captain George is from? The West Indies? The Orient? Africa? Penzance? Saskatchewan? …

Riddles – Picture This! – Solution — The Gnomestead Tapestry

A Gnomestead Tapestry Short.

A “School Daze” Riddle!

Picture This!

From start to end I’m worth more than a picture.
I cast my spell on student, scholar, and author.
Black on white or carved in stone, the truth I can tell.
All the same I can tell a lie equally well..
Losing me might render you speechless.
Don’t hold your tongue and it will effect you less.

What am I?

I am “The Alphabet”.

Did you get the solution? Do you know how the clues fit the riddle?

Shape of things to come.

Status

During the hiatus between January 2017 and July 2017 I spent a couple of months where publishing weekly comics wasn’t possible due to health reasons. I took some of this time to consider the direction the strips would take and though I still haven’t published any instalments of “Space Trek” or “Wheel Tales of Willow City” I have been able to produce two cartoons for “The Gnomestead Tapestry”.

Each of these two cartoons have been riddles. During my hiatus I decided to publish some classic riddles in the Tapestry. Some will be my take on historic ones like “The Riddle of the Sphinx” — and others will be completely original like the current one in “Picture This!”

As I say at the end of each cartoon, I hope you enjoy them and I hope you can share the links to the cartoons with your friends.

Thanks!

The Monarchy Strikes Back! — Space Trek – Episode 9

Welcome to the continuing voyages in Space Trek! I hope you enjoy this bit of Science Fiction Farce and Satire.

This serial takes off where “A New Omen” left off.

The Thunderball 2XL, her crew, Zed, and Princess Dee of Alderbean has landed on the moon Cavatar in the Cava System. They have heard from the Geepoks of Monosaurus that the inhabitants of Cavatar, another moon of the Cava system, are endangered by the Monarchy and are in need of help.

The inhabitants of Monosaurus, the Geepoks, will aid Col. Jeff Horoscope, Doctor Neptune, Princess Dee and Zed on a quest to help the inhabitants of another moon in the Cava system — Cavatar. The plan, to disrupt the strip-mining of Upsydaisium on that moon.

Can they stop that mining and then succeed in driving the Monarchy out of the Cava system?

Now that they have met up with a Cavatarian, there is the problem of translation. Is a solution at hand?

The two Geepoks — sentient Guinea Pigs from the moon Monosaurus in the Cava System — Rascal and Number One, have been ordered to rendezvous with their King Ike and Princess Tribbles. It is a long trek on foot.

I hope you’re enjoying this serial. Please let me know what you think and consider liking the post, retweeting it, favouring it, or generally sharing it around. It is the only way it will be seen! (I can really use the publicity and encouragement.)

Thank you!
