I'm posting this as some kind of preemptive strike before everyone leaves for the holiday weekend. This cartoon is 98% true and happened to me just today. I've learned in life to try not to judge a book by its cover, but this patron looked like he didn't even know what yoga was. Not sure why he requested a copy of this particular magazine, but it sure made my shift all the more interesting. Guess this means my vacation is over with...?

For those of you wondering what I've been up to the past few months, here's the latest news: I'm still working on printing up a little booklet with my cartoons. I was planning to have it finished by the end of this month, but it looks more like mid to late September. I was going to have a few color pages included, but when I found out the cost...well, let's just say it's all going to be in black and white (unless I win the lottery).
I also hope to resume posting new cartoons in a couple of weeks.
Check back to this specific post for any up to the minute details. Thanks for your patience!

* Update * The library cartoon book is finally reserve a copy and find out more info, please write to:

Okay, this isn't a library cartoon and I'm still supposed to be on vacation, but I was itching to post this.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when I'm walking down the sidewalk and a group of people heading in the opposite direction ignores that I'm there and nearly forces me into the street, or onto someone's lawn, etc.
I really don't feel that I should have to yell out "excuse me," or end up pushing someone out of the way. Common sense (if it still exists) should tell a person that the sidewalk space is limited and to pay attention to people headed in their direction, making room if necessary.
Enough of my soapbox talk, I've encountered this sidewalk problem a lot recently and felt like venting. Please feel free to write in with any suggestions, disagreements, or your own stories regarding this situation. Thanks to L.R. for encouraging me to turn my gripes into a cartoon.
