good drying day

clothesline blog

Uhhhh… huh.  This is kind of strange and I’m not sure how it evolved, but I assure you that there is nothing sinister going on here.  I’ve had tails on the brain since the other day when Doodle announced that he would like a tail just like Hoob’s.  I also have laundry on the brain way more than I’d like to, and today was, in fact, a good drying day.  So, there you go.  Next week: mice swimming in a sink full of dishes.

segway tour

Woodland creatures? Check. Segways? Check. Okay, it looks like I have my coolness quotient filled for today.

This drawing was influenced by two separate experiences that my husband had (sometimes you have to live vicariously when you have a toddler). A few months ago, he saw a Yalie bootin’ around campus on his Segway, protecting himself from the rain with a big umbrella. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen someone using a Segway for personal, rather than tour-related, use (other than Gob, obviously). Then, just today, my husband rode in the 42 mile Five Boro Bike Tour along with 29,999 others through the traffic-free streets of NYC. I couldn’t really fit 30,000 woodland creatures on Segways in my drawing, but that would be cool. I’m pretty sure no one would want to be behind the skunk, though.

I’ll be out of town for a conference next weekend, so, unless I’m really on top of my game, which I won’t be, my next post will be a couple of days late. I figured I’d give fair warning so that all the D&H fans out there don’t spontaneously riot or something.
