Working with Tim Reynolds and JJ on JJ’s Boozie Bucket advertising here at Wild Manta in Palm Bay, Florida, today! Despite the constant storms & tornado warnings, involving the massive hurricane Hermine, work must go on!
I love the Queen series. i just picked up another clump of them. This is one of them. However, this is not an example of the reason i picked up so many.
This Queen tale is waaaaaaay too prolonged with an involved MaGuffin that seems orderly enough, but gets monotonous quickly as little else happens involving, what appears to be, a domestic dispute. The story doesn’t make sense unless Queen jumps to too many assumptions. which is something he warns not to do in many of the Queen novels. This is a repeated inconsistency that is the only way the writers could link events, but a flimsy one and one that had me find the entire tale ridiculous.
Due to the prolonged trip through the alphabet, the few characters are very well identified. Odd that the few settings, that are repeated many times, did not have the detail they could have.
The ending is very unsatisfying considering all it took to get to the point. All proving this would have been a far better short story.
Bottom line: I don’t recommend this book. 5 out of 5 points.
Happy Birthday, Taylor!!! The annual trip for a banana split set me this time at Scoops in Ocla, Florida. Quite a different location and banana split (below) than the stop I made last year in South Carolina.
Here my friend, Marguerite Cavenaugh, and the owner of Scoops joins in Happy Birthday wishes!!!
Last years trip to work and help North Carolina candidate to run the N.C. G.O.P., A.J. Daoud put me in a spot to, for the first time, not create an animated Happy birthday wish. Driving to Raleigh, N.C., had me thinking maybe now is a good time to stop posting cartoons after all these years, in that you and Jacob are adults. The cartoons may seem silly now. So, I figure best to send birthday wishes this way with photos and hopes of a very Happy Birthday and hope that your life is tremendous!
By the way, A.J. Daoud is married to Amber’s aunt, Angie.
Day 2 of this 4 day event creating these cartoon improvisations and the crowd is terrific! See each photo for descriptions!
Hunkered down for a few hours at a newly discovered local coffee shop and knocked out a bunch of artwork. So much more to do! Will repeat process tomorrow with hopes of more successful results.
A peek at the books and a bunch of artwork done in the past week.
By the way, if you would like me to create a painting for you or other artwork, let me know!
Got a bunch of artwork done tonight! Finished a painting, which I’ll show later after I scan it in. Started another painting and penciled & inked two Swampy’s Florida cartoons for this week.
While working in the City of Orlando Planning Department I got to work with a really great crew. Certainly that included my supervisor, Jeff Parker. Another was Robert Spindler who was one who took over my position when I moved over to the Engineering Department.
Rob is amazing in that he could be asked to do a project, amidst a maelstrom of other projects, and has the unbelievable organizational skills to get the job done fast and accurately. Skills I wish I had.
Rob retired Tuesday from City Hall after 26 years.
Congratulations and Best wishes, Rob, during your retirement!
