Took you long enough!! Isn't there some sort of loading area for that sort of thing!

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.

This strip was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name.

I worked as mall security for a while and so many people parking in fire-lanes and handicap or wheelchair zones would always say, “I was only in for a minute!” As if that made a difference for the person who needed the spot they took. Of course all we could do was put warnings on their windshields and record their license number for the mall administration. The mall also didn’t want to make waves and lose any of these customers who parked in disabled parking or fire-lanes… I wonder where wheelchair using customers fit into all this?

We'll Make CentsWe were originally published in “We’ll Make Cents“. They are an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a look

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!

Some people thought this one was a bit controversial, because they missed an important part of the strip. Mr B isn’t drunk, he has CP – Cerebral Palsy — one of a number of conditions that can make a person appear as if they were intoxicated or high. The point is that there are many disabilities that are not obvious. Some might make someone look like they are drunk, others don’t look like anything at all, but restrict how a person might live and whether they even get out in public.
