Happy Victoria Day!

Victoria Day 2016I hope you are enjoying a safe and fun Victoria Day Weekend! Enjoy time with family, friends, and neighbours; BBQs, picnics, beach, snowball fights… or just lounging around watching the day go by.

Have a Great Easter Weekend!

Easter 2016I hope you have the chance to make the Easter Holiday a great weekend for you and your family! No matter what your beliefs, for most of us there is a chance to make time for family.

I think it is a time to celebrate rebirth, and to remember the sacrifices made for us.

Of course it is Spring only here in the Northern Hemisphere and even then in the temperate zones. That makes it easier to see rebirth happening across the land. But one can look for it and celebrate it all over the World.

A Day Wasted – reprise — Wheel Tales of Willow City

A Day Wasted 00A Day Wasted 01A Day Wasted 02A Day Wasted 03A Day Wasted 04A Day Wasted 05A Day Wasted 06A Day Wasted 07A Day Wasted 08Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope that you have a chance to let those you love, especially romantically, that you love them! No need for jewellery, flowers, cards, or chocolates. (They they might be nice.) But a bit of your time to let them know how important they are to you and how they play an important part in your life. Let them know that time with time is never wasted.

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.


Here in the temperate areas of  the Northern Hemisphere Spring is coming. In some places they are still digging out of the Winter’s snows, but in others, trees and other plants are beginning to green and bloom. It can be a chance to catch some time with a friend or lover in the outdoors.

If Winter is still wrapped firmly around where you live, don’t despair, Spring is still coming. In the Southern Hemisphere, enjoy the cozy cooler times with your loved ones.

Time spent with someone you care for — lover, friend, or family member — is never wasted!

Thank you!

Coming Up in the Tapestry – Will be late this week….

Sunday April 26 2015 we actually have a second “Space Trek” cartoon! We bring you “Space Trek – A New Omen 30”.  I thought it would be a good idea to follow up on #29 with the follow-up part of “A New Omen”.

Well, more than late… we do have an episode of “Space Trek – A New Omen” coming later today. Tomorrow…. hmmm I’ll have to see

Hi! Due to circumstances beyond my control, “Coming Up in the Tapestry 47” will probably be delayed a day or two. I hope to get the Saturday and Sunday comic strips out on time.

I hope you’ve been enjoying the cartoons. I’d love to hear from you and find out what you think of them. Drop a note to me via my Facebook page “The Gnome’s Garden”. (Or you can comment here too.)

Thanks for dropping by!

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 to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.

We'll Make CentsWe’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit and check out their current project.

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!
