I just found out from the insurance company that the Tacoma is a total loss.......... the vehicle is on its way to the big scrap heap in the sky.

I am really sad.....



While driving home from work last night, I was unfortunately involved in a 4 car accident. Traffic was a little heavier on the side streets due to all of the DNC road closures. I was hit from behind by an older model truck traveling around 45 mph. The collision caused a chain reaction, and ended up hitting the car in front of me. The car I hit ended up hitting the car in front of him. Fortunately, no one was severely injured and all of the crumple zones on all of the vehicles did what they were supposed to do.

I still feel a little banged up today.... thank goodness I was wearing a seat belt or I think things could have been much worse........

Below are the pics of the accident I took with my cell phone.

I sure hope my truck can be fixed..... I really love that truck.

OBAMA and the DNC

Since the DNC is in town and those overly popular Obama "Change" campaign posters are hanging on every wall and light pole, I thought I would offer up a version of my own..........

After working on this, I kind of wish that I was working as a political cartoonist again. There is always so much material to draw from when the DNC and RNC are going on. It actually makes it really easy to do your job.

Remember, if you want Socialism and Taxes. Vote Obama in '08

I am officially old today.........

Sorry, no art today...... I have to apologize that it has been a while since I posted. I have been so busy with other things in my life that this blog fell off of my list of the important things that I need to do.

Today, I turn 40 and I am now officially old. If I live to be 80 years old, I have now lived half of my life...... pretty depressing, if you look at everything as being half empty........ when I was a kid I sure didn't picture turning 40 years old to be like how I feel right now. I imagined that I would be more "grown up" and having a more "mature" outlook at life. What is weird is that I still feel like I am 18 years old and ready to take on the world..........

Below are some pictures from when I was a baby. My Mother did an excellent job saving all of my baby pictures, cards and clothes for me. I always enjoy looking through all of that stuff. It is interesting to think about what I remember about that stuff. Is what I remember what actually happened? or is what I remember what someone told as I was growing up?

The card that was attached to my basket in the baby room at the hospital. I really like the illustration on this card. Very well done.

This photo was taken by the hospital photographer on the day after I was born.

This picture of the family was taken 9 days after I was born at 1100 South Farifax in Denver. Look at how pretty my Mom is (look at that tan!), and how handsome my Dad is, and how cute my Sister is......... I wonder why I was crying with all of these beautiful people around me....... maybe it was gas......

I believe that this photo was taken at my Grammy's house in October of 1968. That is my sister I am sitting with. I think this was the last time we actually smiled at each other.... or maybe I am smiling because I had gas...... :)

I guess you are only as old as you feel, and today I sure don't feel like I turned 40....

Happy Birthday to me!!!!
