Cartoons ~ Part 1

I have a collection of cartoons from newspapers and magazines that I've cut out or that others have given me. Here are some of my favorites.

Seahorses From Far Away

When my mother died, my sister took the Seahorses she had given to my mom. Thankfully, I can see them in pictures anytime.

I love this one, with the green chips filling in the body.

Mom had two pairs of similar earrings.

These are the pair I have.

How I wish I had this glass! 

I wonder if I could convince my sister that it really belongs with my Animal Glass set?

Stories for Khloe ~ Gumby and Pokey Go To School

For my favorite little Turkey Dog.

Gobble, Gobble, Woof, Woof! 

I love you.

Yo Yo.

Gumby and Pokey Go To School

"Pokey, you're not a girl! Come to the boy's line."

Gumby and Pokey always pay attention to the teacher.

"I wonder what we're having for lunch?" Gumby thinks, as he waits for Pokey to get his lunch ticket.

"I wish I could print as well as you do, Gumby," says Pokey.

"Wheeeeee! Going down the slide is fun."

"Pokey! Close your eyes," says Gumby. "It's rest time."

"What are you cooking, Gumby?" asks Pokey in the Kitchen Center.

"Look Pokey. Your name starts with the letter P. What else starts with P?"

Gumby and Pokey have lots of fun at school. I hope you will, too, Khloe.

The End

Favorite Children's Books

So many to choose from.

Children love dinosaurs, but have you ever wondered what it would be like if they lived among us today?

Finally giraffes would be able to look up!

If I could only have Lyle to help out around the house, I'd be sooo happy.

He's just so lovable.

Did you ever notice how the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty says: "All the King's horses and all the King's men, couldn't put Humpty together again?" I read that for years until one day I suddenly wondered why anyone would think a horse could put an egg together in the first place!

Thankfully Humpty lived to climb another wall, but his problems weren't over yet.

Don't worry. This is not quite the end of the story.

Look up, Giraffes #323. Look up!
