Halloween Humor

Here's a bit of Halloween humor that you might find useful. This one actually got published in our local town paper. I've got a few other doodles I could be posting, but just in case you wanted to "Copy & Share If You Dare" I wanted to be sure to get this to you before the big scare comes upon us.

In other news: Anna did one of those "Meme" challenges to me me on her her blog. I'm I'm never very good at these these things, but I I want to try to comply with the etiquette of the blogging world and respond. Besides that, Anna Anna became one of my my "Followers" not long ago, and I I find her her sense of humor interesting. She's she's the one sporting the mustache over to the right—an unusual profile pic, which prompted me me to scope out her her blog while doing a bit of surfing one day day.

(You you had enough of that that?)

The challenge is to either...

1. "List 7 weird or quirky things about me," or

2. "Post the 5th photo from my 5th album for the whole dang world to see."

The photo in question would be this one. It's not a particularly humorous pic. I think I might actually have posted it before. This is a view about 45 minutes up the coast from where I live—the base of Humbug Mt. It sits right on the Oregon coast. Very beautiful. Come and see it.

So, instead, maybe I can come up with seven things about me that you would find "humorous or quirky."

This is hard since I am such a vanilla kind of guy.

1. I still have in my possesion a stack of Spider-man comic books that I purchased way back when I was a nerdy teen. Nothing there that will make me rich, but someday I will transform it into part of a purchase for a new Harley.

2...
Two...
II...
Duo...
Dos...

Good grief! I can't think of anything. Oh well, I'm just too ordinary to play this game.

(Being a good blogger can be such a challenge sometimes.)

Maybe I'll have to get back to you on the other six. But, I recommend that you check out Anna's list on this post. Especially number four—very strange strange.

Great doodle! I need to get me one of those big hairy guys. Maybe it would help me control my boss and get me candy! I love Anna...she is a hoot!

Howdy, Rick! Thanks for playing along on the meme silliness. I love that photo... And, as for the list, I think it makes you quirky that you are so dang normal. You'd stand out like a sore thumb here in Santa Monica - Ha!

Great job and have a great day...

LOL - Yup, I can totally relate!

On Halloween car loads of people from other neighborhoods come down on us like a swarm of locust. We even had adults (not even bothering to be in costume) come to the door asking for candy!

The neighborhood has gone so far as to hire security guards to keep things under control! Were have the sweet little kids from our neighborhood gone? Off to college perhaps?!

I found Anna recently and I've really enjoyed reading her blog so it doesn't surprise me that you were tagged by her. Her interests seem to be many and varied... and sometimes off the wall which I can identify with...lol

I may have to come get your Boo boy. It will be appreciated around here. It would be even more perfect for red dirt, red neck Oklahoma if it had BOO Y'ALL on it, but I love the big galoot.

I'll let you know when I come to kidnap him.

I'm going to use that picture - later!

I'm sure your family will tell you about your quirks!!

Natalie said...

You could always add the bit about Nestle morsels!

I enjoyed looking through your blog, and cracking up at your drawings!

Beautiful girls, all.

You could make those backdrops and sell them on Etsy. Amazing.

Great Halloween doodle! Congrats. on getting it published!

I agree with Ann about your photo! Beautiful! It's a painting waiting to happen.

Rick, I like your idea about it being time to get a new laptop. Unfortunately, the budget doesn't allow for it right now. So I'll gimp through and make it last as long as possible. Besides it gives me something to write about... When it is time, it will be available, but right now I'm paying off a bill for getting my truck fixed, so it will be at least two more months that I need to baby this baby. But thanks for your concern.

Gorgeous photo! You live in such a beautiful area.

Lame Rick! I could post a list of weird things about you and I've never even met you, LOL.

Okay, so you could post weird things about me, too...as a matter of fact I think you have made a comment or two about some unusual things about me....hmmm. Is it payback time?

Aleta said...

Funny doodle. I really do enjoy your work and look forward to one day making a purchase!

Aww, come on, only one thing? Hehe

Used that picture too. I couldn't help it, both were so great I couldn't decide between them.

I love your artwork Rick... but more than that, I am jealous of where you get to live. Oregon coast, I would give my eye teeth...

Awesome picture (at first I thought it was Big Sur).
