Over the next few days I’m going to show you some pictures of cartoonists. I came across this 1997 National Cartoonist Society magazine that I had squirreled away. Ever year we would make a publication of some kind to hand out at our yearly convention. This one was based on Norman Rockwell’s illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post. I may not name all the cartoonists pictured, only the ones that any cartoon fan should surely recognize. Email me if you can name them. Answers to this one tomorrow.
This is my last video from the cruise to Bermuda. I Promise. On every cruise there is the Marriage Game. It’s taken from an old tv show. Here are some highlights.
At least I think it’s Wednesday…
Here it is, Andy:
Nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there. That’s where we docked at the east end. There’s an old fort there. I wanted to stick a toe in the water, but it cost 5 bucks. Geeze! The following photos are from the fort area.
The phones work.
The population of Bermuda is about 65,ooo. Housing is very expensive. A modest middle class house like those below will cost about 1.5 Million. I took this next picture on the van taking us to Hamilton.All the structures are designed with hurricanes in mind. They laugh at hurricanes. The people get their drinking water mainly from rain running off their specially designed roofs. As you can see, it was raining at the time.
This is Hamilton, one of the two cities.
We had a real nice lunch in Hamilton at a place called The Onion right there about three buildings down on the main street. It was reasonably priced.
These houses on the water will cost you at least 3 million bucks.
We now say goodbye to the lovely islands of Bermuda.
More fun on the cruise ship.
See if it breaks…
Guess who won.
Oops. I posted a daily strip yesterday instead of a Sunday. So, from 1998:
At my local ABC store. Give me a break!
You would think that for that much money they could drop the 98 cents. I didn’t buy it. And the lousy store doesn’t carry Mad Dog.
Our house guests left this morning. We were such close friends over 40 years ago. That was when I first started drawing cartoons. What a delight it was having them. Here’s a snap shot of them under that wonderful Sailor and Nurse Statue in Sarasota.
I hope they don’t mind that I showed this. I don’t think there are any outstanding bench warrants out on them.
Tomorrow, back on board the Sausage of the Seas for the big “Drop the Egg from the Fourth Deck and See If It Breaks” contest.
More later. He’s coming from San Antonio. I’m serving tacos. Our house guests leave tomorrow morning.
And I don’t have lots of time. Here’s today’s strip
