Due to this questionable character, he often catching these, who for some reason think hanging out on my screen, in EASY pouncing reach, is a good way to spend the afternoon.

The cat likes to bring the live chipmunk inside the house through the cat door and let it go. For him, the game is over.

And now it is the dog’s turn, and in the excitement of the chase, the living room explodes. This is where I come home and arrive upon the scene.

The chipmunk finds safety by squeezing between two faces of the sliding door:

Using an assortment of kitchen utensils, I safely remove the chipmunk, and release him outside.

I did not think this was an issue, as my dog has never been able to catch a chipmunk, inside OR outside the house.  I did not realize how frustrating this was to him until several days later.

Visiting the Inner Sanctum of Richard Thompson (The Cartoonist, Not The Singer)

A few weeks ago in DC I hung out with Richard Thompson, creator of the comic strip Cul De Sac and the longtime illustrator extraordinaire.  If you want to see funny artwork to break up your day, check out his blog. (I won’t be offended if you leave this page.  It’s totally worth it.)

I just ordered The Complete Art of Richard Thompson to give myself for my birthday.

We spent the afternoon flipping through files and files of his work.  Here is his actual wedding invitation.  (Note: Despite the look on their faces, he and his wife are still married.  And even more incredible, it was Richard’s mother who set them up.)

Here’s the bunch of us in his studio:

At the end of my visit, I looked over at this statue on his bookshelf:

Then I asked, “What does Colonel Sanders mean to you?”

“That’s Mark Twain,” he said.

Oops.
