This was a comic from back in 2009. It is about Hank the Handy Man and his rusty side-kick Buster. While going through my archives I decided to select some of these for a black and white printed mini comic to sell at my Jewelry Shows. I am changing the format slightly from what it was and doing some clean up of the artwork. It will be printed 81/2 by 5 1/2 so I can get four pages to legal sheet of paper and then use a staple bind to hold them together. (It worked real well for my I’ve Been Thinkin’ book). I also decided to color some of the old black and white ones and make the mini comic into a .PDF for later.
Here is the results of the same comic in color.
My wife and I jokingly answer each other with this when we ask each other “What are you doin’?” Nunya…Nunya (none of your) business.
I have spent some time this week on some of the sayin’s that I have used in comics as punch lines over the years. I was postin’ them in squares (some folks I think call them memes) but I decided to reformat some of the new ones so that I can print them out and make them available at the Jewelry Sales this summer. I am trying to gear more of my stuff to printed media instead of internet content. I might not be able to sell many of them but they will make a great give away item that might inspire some folks to buy the jewelry.
One of the reasons I have not been on the internet much is that I have been in overdrive getting things ready to set up my jewelry booth and sell some stuff. I love meeting the people and minglin’ with the crowds.

This is one of my earliest comics. I have been going through some stuff for a project I am workin’ on and I ran across this one. It looks like it is timely enough to run every year just before summer because gas prices begin to climb again.
Things around Gatorhead have been pretty busy the last few weeks. I have actually felt like doin’ some things that I haven’t been able to do in months and I have been playin’ catch up. It looks like maybe I will be completely back into the writin’, drawin’, and jewelry makin’, mode soon because as I write this it is almost 90 degrees outside. I don’t handle extreme cold or extreme heat very well so maybe I will be on the internet a little more in a couple of weeks. I still check everyone’s sites but it is harder to comment on things on my tablet so I don’t do as much commentin’.
I really have some new ideas that I hope to get started on pretty soon with some comics. Now if I can just get started on the artwork that will be a big help.
It’s been a while since I posted a Molly’s World. She has got to be the wildest and most energetic puppy I have ever seen. She loves to play with her toys…all of them at once and she scatters them all over the room and then looks for something else. My wife had her offering for Church clipped with a paper clip inside of her Bible. She couldn’t find it and Molly was missing (she has a table she hides under when she is up to no good.) Molly had taken the money from the Bible, tore a $20 bill and was chewing on the paper clip when I found her.
She still loves to bite me when I am playing with her (which reminds me I need to pick up some band-aids from Wal-Mart). Whenever I go outside or leave and stay gone for more than a few minutes she is so excited when I come back in that you would think I had been gone for months. She takes all the energy Gloria and I both have just to keep up with her.
Gloria says that she is what is keeping me alive and kickin’ and she might have a point. I have to confess, ” I sure do love that little dog.”
Thankfully, since I am retired, most of my time is spare time. I still have to do some things that might be considered work. Mowing the grass on a riding mower is about the closest I come to manual labor now. I do try to stay busy. This weekend I hammered out some copper pipe to make crosses from and I made about 40 pairs of earrings. This next week I plan to finish my Jewelry Sign and make some more displays but I don’t really consider this work.
I do need to get back to work on some comics and do some drawin’ and writin’ and I am sure I will but I plan to do it when I really want to do it. I ain’t gonna turn this hobby that I do in my spare time in to work.

One of my favorite sayings is, “It ain’t all about me.”. I reckon that is one of the best lessons I have ever learned in my long life. I believe in the Golden Rule. I believe we should treat other people the way we would like to be treated. I have had people tell me that if I did that people would take advantage of me. That might be true but that ain’t about me…it’s about them. I am responsible to do right. I ain’t responsible for what others do.
Some people seem to just make up their mind that they are goin’ to look for the bad in everything. If I wake up in the mornin’ I pretty much figure that it is the start to a good day.
I want to apologize for my lack of an internet presence lately. I have been havin’ some connection problems and haven’t been on the webs much lately. I’m at a good Wi-Fi spot right now so I am trying to catch up a little. I can still check out people’s comics and websites at home but I have a lot of trouble commenting.
