Sometimes, one misplaced letter in a word or sentence can lead to confusion, embarrassment, and angst.
Just one mistaken or misdirected squiggly character can lead a person astray, both physically and spiritually.

I know some find it offensive that I cover only about one thing a day, and that the topic I pick is not necessarily the one they would have wanted.
So, as a public service to help my fans, especially my two very devoted ones who have to find topics I didn't pick on their own, thereby taking up too much of their valuable time, these are some of the topics I did not draw or write about today.
In my very strict religious upbringing I remember Jesus as being the Prince of Peace, and someone who had said that a person who lives by the sword will die by one.

My daily schedule begins with perusing the internet reading various news web sites, not only to see what happened the previous day, but to read what people have to say about events.
I check the comments after my blog, and forward the link to the blog to people and publications all over the globe.
My day goes on; I draw some pictures; and then go out into the world and interact with people.

I'm just printing radio reports and Walter might have someone on the way there as we speak, but I'm hearing reports of a
three four alarm fire at New Bedford Waste in Sandwich.
