I think even bees are multi-tasking these days. I’ve had several near misses with bees racing madly to get that nectar recently – more than I remember in past summers.
Today I was struck with a decided thump and angry buzzing on the side of my head. It zoomed off seeming to hardly notice.
It may be just me, but this buzzy bee made me think of several encounters with people of late. Everyone is so tuned into their various devices that they sure don’t watch where they’re going or what’s around them. They buzz angrily at whomever gets in their way and buzz off.
By the way, it’s cooled off a bit. It’s “only” going up to 90º today. Who would have thunk that 90º was a cold front?
Oh and I did get some drawing in yesterday and this a.m.

This Big Belch panel stars Francois, the best lover of a French bulldog in existence and Sugar, his borzoi heart throb. Oh, and for you parrot lovers, Fletcher, parrot curmudgeon.
Been so busy of late I’ve hardly gotten any work done on “The Big Belch” graphic novel. Still on page 4! This little movie I started originally as just a update about a week and a half ago.
But now I’m happy to say that I’ve made a bit of progress – at least on this one panel in this first in the Cane and Able series of graphic novels with baby boomers Monty Cane and Maureen Able, their companions, Fletcher, a cantankerous parrot, and Francois, an extraordinarily lovable French bull dog, and their endlessly irritating source of unusual challenges, Dr, Harold Zin.
This little movie is about the real Fletcher.
You may notice that often the movies are fairly dark and some times over saturated. This is because it’s very hard to get the pencil drawings to show up at all. They look great on my computer, but iMovie just doesn’t have the fine tuning I guess.
