I hurt my paw hand the other day. I was doing a lot of things with my right paw/hand/whatever and my paw was like “Umm…Tipsy…can you slow it down a wee bit? I’m kinda tired!”. I didn’t pay that much attention to it at the time but now I can’t help but give it a lot of attention. It hurts! Mr. C. Cow has rubbed it. Bishop gave me a bag of frozen peas to put on it. Marslean looked up something called “acu-smacking”. Acu-punching? Puncture? I’m not exactly sure what it’s called but it’s suppose to help.
My paw hurt has made me really sad this week. We can’t drive far in the camper because it hurts to grip the wheel. I can’t expect Mr. C. to do all of the driving. It’s not fair to him. (He also gets tired real easy and tries to drive with his mouth. Safety tip: don’t drive with your mouth!)
To cheer me up Bishop gave me a bunch of photos he found in a safety manual so Mr. C. Cow and I could try to guess what they mean. He knows us so well!
I think that, deep down underneath all that bear fur, Bishop thinks it’s funny when we try to make up our own safety sign meanings. He probably doesn’t think it’s funny when we do it in his shop but doesn’t mind if we do it sitting on the couch.
I’m going to go get another frozen bag of veggies to put on my paw. This bag of peas is starting to melt and it’s making Mr. C. Cow hungry. If I keep it on any longer I’m afraid he’s going to steal it and make soup.
I want to thank my husband who is the real life Bishop (and character model) for the safety photos. He’s not a polar bear in real life but some might mistake him for one. Especially when he’s wearing a hard hat.
I did hurt my hand from spending an entire day typing postcard related stuff, photo editing, and drawing for my other site “Lizzy Zilla”. I have to learn that one cannot draw three comics, do a postcard post, photo edit, AND all the other stuff I have to do in one day. My advice? If you’re hand yells at you to take a break TAKE A BREAK!
Also want to thank my daughter who is the model with which I base the character of Marslean after. She really did look up acupuncture stuff. Please check out her photography website HERE as a big thank you!
Mr. C. Cow and I didn’t go out to a bar or pub or brew-ha-ha for St. Patrick’s Day this year. Yes, we did have a cocktail BUT we drank it in the middle of the woods on a night hike. It beats driving around with all the yahoo’s drinking dyed green beer. Not being anti-social or anti-green beer but I knew it was just going to be a hassle to get a decent drink anywhere.
Mr. C. was all for having a bit of the ol’ spirits on a night hike to celebrate. He kept coming up with cool names to call it.
My personal favorite was “Martini March”. Sounds like I should wear some sort of big hat and carry a baton. (Mr. C. Cow could play the triangle.)
Speaking of hats, Mr. C. decided that, being St. Patrick’s day and all, that he needed to go all out with the green swag. We’re talking green hat, sunglasses, and (the icing on green cake) sparkly green hoofs. How does one green sparkle one’s hoofs? Apparently with a lot of hoof cosmetic glue and enough glitter to start your own craft store. See for yourself:
Being a night hike and all it was difficult to get the best picture of him but I was able to properly capture his holiday cheer. Not only did this photo capture the pure essence of a Mr. C. Cow outfit it has also came in handy to prove that we saw weird “sky squids” floating around. It wasn’t just the hiking cocktails! We would have stopped to ask what they were doing squid-squashing around in the night sky but we couldn’t get close enough.
If we ever run into any “sky squids” again we need to have a chat because squishing around the sky looks AWESOME!
Hope you all had a wonderful and safe St. Patrick’s Day!

I wanted to share with all of you my new website that I just started this past Sunday. It’s called “Lizzy Zilla” and follows the adventures of a GIANT lizard just trying to make it in a “dog eat dog get eaten by a lizard” kinda world. My artwork borders on “drunken toddler with crayons” when it comes to style so I hope it makes you laugh as much as it makes us laugh. (Mr. C. Cow thinks it’s funny as all get out!) Please share with your friends because I would love to share my crazy humor with everyone! (Currently updates with a new comic every Sunday.)
