Continuing…

Any religious beliefs are fine with me so long, of course, as they’re not harmful. As Joseph Campbell said, paraphrasing, “We must understand that religious canons are metaphors.” He said something to that effect. After all, if there is only one true, correct belief, all other beliefs must be false. But as I say, I have no problem with any religion which is not harmful. (For example the worship of Kali by the Thugges)

Even atheism is fine. However, I want to tell you a story about that. The only problem I have is with those whom I’ve termed “evangelical atheists”. I knew a very talented, creative man for years who happened to be an atheist. In a group one time we were discussing life after death. I mentioned two instances concerning people whom I knew very well and who had near death experiences. You’ve all heard these stories, and these two people in the past had related their similar stories. My friend interrupted and gave some baseless argument to the effect that “They (whoever they are) have proven that these so called near death experiences are merely blah blah blah”.  I have no respect for someone who would try to destroy another person’s faith and hope and replace it with despair.

Religion

I know a lot about religion. I’m sure that many of you do. I was thrown out of quite a few newspapers because certain people thought that I insulted their beliefs. The most egregious occurrence was when the Ontario Star dropped me because of my satire on Osama Ben Laden. The complainers felt that I was insulting Islam. I can understand their objections. Dressing a man in a burka could certainly raise some eyebro  OOPS!!! Frau Grace just walked in the door. More tomorrow. By the way I would welcome your comments as this discussio***

HEY! POOP FOR BRAINS!!!

Yes Dear?

Cars Tomorrow

It’s late and I worked all day. Believe it or not. When the job is done I’ll tell you about it. Till now, I appreciate the comments about the cars in the Sampson vs the Vampire movie. Tomorrow I’ll put in my insipid two pesos worth. Now, here’s Ernie and Sid and Zerblat in the bar:

Sampson vs the Vampire Women

I was watching Sampson vs the Vampire Women (YouTube) last night. It was a Mystery Science 3000 movie. It’s a very good movie, I recommend it. Sampson, by the way, doesn’t come in until the last third of the movie or so. I don’t think I’m giving away the plot when I tell you that he’s a Mexican professional wrestler. What really caught my eye was the very last scene in the movie.

I took a screen shot on my computer just now. Sampson was driving what appears to be an Austin Healey 3000, Mach III. Correct me if I’m wrong. But I owned a 1950 3000 Mach I 45 years ago. It was long in the tooth when I owned it. As a matter of fact, the reason Frau Grace and I are married now is because it broke down in her front yard, and it took me a month to fix it. The internal gears on the distributor stripped. By the time I fixed it, it was too late to make my getaway. The other car looks like my ’58 Plymouth Belvedere. That was a pile of junk as well. But it’s not a Plymouth. The grill is wrong. Does anybody know what it is?

My Great Aunts

This photograph was taken in the 1890’s. These ladies were my great aunts and my grandmother on my mother’s side. Their father was my great grandfather, George Luttrell. I’ve mentioned him before regarding to his time as a Confederate soldier in the War of Northern Aggression. In the back row from left to right, Aunt Cora, Aunt Willa Mae, on the  lower row, left to right, Lena (my grandmother), Elizabeth,  Alice. My grandmother was born in 1878.

Old family photographs are treasures. If you have them, you know what of I write.

This Sunday was before I had my computer, so I don’t have the color files. Notice that the top three panels are kind of wasted. That’s because different newspapers have different formats for publishing. The strip had to make sense if you dropped one of the top three panels, or two of the top three panels, or kept the title panel and dropped one of the remaining two. It was  a pain in the butt, and my Sundays would have been much better if I hadn’t had to put up with this bull poop. (Forgive the verbiage. I don’t like to use bad words.)

Nothing Today

All I did was work on stuff and draw, and with 4 hours sleep last night, I’m really tired. I guess insomnia comes with getting long in the tooth. By the way, do you know where that saying “Long in the tooth” comes from? It has to do with, first, horses. An old horse has gums that have receded. Hence, and old horse is “long in the tooth”. And that’s where the expression “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” comes from.

Lamantini

That’s a combination of “manatee” and “martini”,  I guess. It’s yet another reincarnation of a certain venue in Bradenton. About a year or so I was in there and Tanya was singing. She was there again. Real nice voice.

If you’re familiar with American baseball, panel two is about historical baseball statistics. I mentioned my old roommate, Louie Capone a while back. He knew all this stuff. The numbers behind the names is their respective batting averages, i.e. the percentage of times they hit the ball successfully.

Mr. Ed was a  US 60’s TV sitcom about a talking horse. Really stupid show.
