What is the deal with Ziggy

I have questions about our old pal Ziggy. How is he able to stand with his heel exposed like that? Because when we are walking the dog and need to check for dog doo, that would be really handy.

Maybe something is weird with his hip joint? Is this why he doesn’t like to wear pants? Or did he have to sell them to buy groceries?

I am not knocking Ziggy. I got a tagline from a Ziggy strip maybe 30 years ago, when we are driving around looking at Christmas displays, and we see a Nativity scene, the first one to yell “What’s E.T. doing in the Nativity scene!!” wins. (Ziggy displayed for purposes of critique/parody; Please don’t sue me, big eastern comic-strip syndicate!)

Red Green Show at the Tacoma Dome! I just got a postcard informing me that Red Green is bringing his one man show to The Pantages Theatre in Tacoma on July 18. You know it’s fancy because they spell it “Theatre” instead of “Theater”.

I’m kind of bummed because it’s on a Wednesday and I have a night job that would overlap a bit.

They put me on the mailing list because about a year ago, I bought some Red Green suspenders from redgreen.com so I wouldn’t have to stop mowing the lawn to hitch up my pants.

Unfortunately, the suspenders are of the type that hooks over a belt, rather than clipping to the top of your jeans. It chaffs my hide to combine a belt and suspenders.

I know what you are thinking, that I should use duct tape, but trust me, it’s not a good idea to use duct tape on any article of clothing. Just trust me on that.

Soda Pop creature We went to find a few geocaches today, the “swag” turned out to be this fly and a little posable rubber hand, seen here as a little man climbing the far side of my soda can.

We have got to find a wholesale supplier of these little hands! Sure, we have life-sized rubber hands but the little ones I find to be infinitely creepier.
