N.C. Here I Come… Again

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

Well, I’m off to my working vacation up in our cabin in N.C. again this summer. I can’t wait, I love it up there. Overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains from our rear deck, the cool temperature, the wild life, hiking, water rafting and fishing. It’s a nice change of pace from the Florida heat and humidity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a beach bum at heart, a real parrot head, but the change is a welcome relief. I’ll post pictures to my Flickr account and have a link here to share with you guys. In the meantime, if you hadn’t seen it before, here’s a short video from last years 4th of July party in N.C. along the New River.

Back in the saddle

Friday, July 25th, 2008

Hey guys, I’m back in the studio again after a nice vacation in N.C. Man, what a great time we had up there. We made some new friends and hooked up with some from last year. The weather was fantastic and it was awesome to spend so much time outdoors.

On the way up to the cabin I had the opportunity to meet face to face with Brian Dunaway in S.C., for those of you who don’t know, Brian is co-host and producer of Comics coast to coast. If you’ve never listened to their web radio show before, you gotta check them out, they’re really very talented, funny guys that also draw and write their own web strips. Brian interviewed me last year for the show and we’ve become fast friends since, so it was nice to finally meet him and his wife Suzanne. Get this, we met at a Quizno’s near his house for lunch. I’m guessing he doesn’t want me to know where he lives. Thanks for the warm southern hospitality, pal. ; )

Anyway, you can check out a few of my pics I set aside to share with you on Flickr. More to be posted soon. You could also check out this video I shot of a few of the kids (including mine) who were skateboarding down a large hill in front of our cabin. Yeah, I know. No protective gear whatsoever. Bad parenting.

Oh, I almost forgot. If you’re on Facebook and want to add me as a friend you can send me a friend request here, in the message area just let me know you’re a reader of the strip and are coming from the blog.

Well, catch you back here in a few days. Have a great weekend.
