The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday thing. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!


List 5 things that made you really happy this week.


1.  A person who was ill called me and they are so much better. It made me so happy to let go of my worries about them.

2.  I caulked and washed the windows on the lower level of our house. Can you imagine? I did windows.

3.  Hubby and I went out to dinner last night. We decided when we go again, it will be to my favorite place, because we like that better. Yay.

4.  I put chicken wire down in our vegetable garden to keep the feral cats out. They don’t like to step on it.


5.  I realized that even if the cartoon I am working on looks amateurish, I am still an okay person, and by golly people like me .*

This is one panel of about 50 that make up a ten page comic. The story is called Learning Module 4090 — Earth.


Have your best Friday ever.

      Thank you Holly. You are kind. I am slowly getting through the 50 cartoon panels needed for this 10 page comic.

      I am feeling utterly better, thanks.

    I LOVE your cartoon (even though, I’m embarrassed to admit, I don’t really get it. I like it, though! Maybe it will come to me … ) and it doesn’t look amateurish at all. (I first typed cartoonish. What would it mean to call a cartoon cartoonish? Is that good? Bad?) Anyway, by golly people like you very much, and we like your cartoons too.

      Thank you Mommy PhD. Your comment made me realize that people wouldn’t know that this is one cartoon panel out of about 50 in a story. It’s not a stand alone cartoon. So thanks to you, I edited my post. I love clarity.

    Thanks for sharing your cartoon. Sometimes less says more (if you know what I mean) and I think it is powerful because of its simplicity. Enjoy your week-end.
