Illustration Friday: Pet Peeve

(click on image to enlarge)
When I read this weeks topic, "Pet Peeves", I thought to myself, I don't want to do that. Thinking about pet peeves just gets me all churned up. It's the same reason I try to steer clear of the Editorial Page in the paper. It just gets me wrankled, and then I can't concentrate on anything else for the rest of the day. Then I thought it would be funny (this is me being funny) to have a guy whose pet peeve was other people's pet peeves. There you go.

This started out as a one-liner, but as I went through my image library it developed into a bit of a story. I know, it's a bit heavy on the text, but I couldn't help myself.

Illustration Friday: Garden

"Whether it was the advances in pesticide technology, or just his old fashioned green thumb, Farmer Brown was enjoying his best growing season in years."
It was a bit hard to get into the "garden" theme, what with all the snow this past week. While Spring is just around the corner we've been enjoying record snowfalls, so it's hard to imagine those first crocuses popping their heads out of the ground, or even the smell of the earth thawing in the warm sun. I did put my snow shovel down long enough to cobble this piece together.
On the plus side, it was nice to move the clock ahead one hour and enjoy the extra hour of magnificent sunlight. Here's a picture of my boys on the top of "Mount Crumpet" at the end of our driveway.
