Things that make you go: hmmmmm???

a 1

Okay, I just thought this picture I took of an orangutan needed to go with that title… but now, I might as well write something to go with both of them. How about this:

I sort of agree with the idea of some of the tRump voters who just wanted to try removing politicians from politics… where they went wrong is that you have to remove assholes from politics too.

Just sayin’.

Well, how many books have you written, Arthur, I hear you asking yourselves…?

a 1

That is a very good question, thank you for asking. Let’s see, I suppose it depends on how you add it up. So far, I have self-published the first three novels in my hilarious and exciting action/humor science fiction series: The Otherwhere Chronicles. But the fourth book is technically finished, except for the editing part. Then there is my murder mystery set in World War Two London: Double Service. And the two self-illustrated books for children. And now that I have finished writing The Seven Kingdoms, which I still need to edit, I guess that would add up to eight… more or less.

All those that you see in the photo are available by clicking the links in my sidebar… the ones that look like little pictures of the book covers… just so you know.

I have also shared parts of most of these books down there in the blog somewhere, including some interesting posts about how I did the artwork for the books for kids.

Yes, I not only write books, but I do the illustrations for the ones for children too…

And I did a few aliens also, that didn’t end up in my science fiction action/humor series of novels. I just do those for fun.

I had a really good tiger day… part 6… what?… yes, I know that isn’t a tiger…

a 1

That is a baby warthog.

a 2

And that is a daddy warthog.

a 3

That is a pygmy hippo… no… I don’t know how old it is.

a 4

That is my friend, Olivia… a two-year-old human. I took her to the zoo.

a 5

Which is where we saw all these animals.

a 6

Including two tigers… who are usually hiding… but we got a good look at them close up… which, once again, explains the titles of this series of posts.

Oh, and did I mention that I finished my latest novel?

z 40

Yes… the exciting one, about the princesses who lead a revolt against an evil empire… the one you can read most of, under the button in my top bar called: The Seven Kingdoms! Yes, the one I still need to find some volunteers to help me edit, that’s the one.

I had a really good tiger day… part 5…

a 1

Oh, stop being so melodramatic, little orangutan, I know you aren’t a tiger.

a 2

No, Olivia, I am not calling you a tiger either…

a 3

I just started using the tiger thing as the title for this series of posts, and now I am stuck with it.

a 4

I know, not as clever as my ‘ZOOm lens chronicles’ series titles.

a 5

But I already used a few variations of that.

a 6

I was only making the point that, when I took Olivia to the San Diego zoo, we were lucky enough to see the tigers really close up.

a 7

And that doesn’t always happen.

a 8

It doesn’t mean I love the rest of you any less.

a 9

But, come on, tigers are pretty awesome!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled photos of tigers and other animals… and other weird stuff… in order to share the last few pictures I took of Mollie, my younger daughter, and her friends, just before their senior prom…

a 1

Yes, my daughter looks beautiful, and yes, her boyfriend is handsome.

a 2

Don’t worry, I am not sharing all the pictures I took, just some of the best ones.

a 3

Because that is what I do here, share my life, and my kids are a big part of my life.

a 4

Also, I thought it was important to show that teenage boys have a sense of humor, and don’t take life too seriously.

a 5

I know, Dashawn is dreamy, am I right?

a 6

Anyway, that about wraps it up for these.

a 7

Okay… one more of my daughter’s boyfriend…

a 8

I like the way the little hair curl makes a shadow on his forehead.
