Freshly Squeezed 2/6/13

I came up with the idea of Grandpaman a few months ago, but didn’t do anything with it until now. He’ll be making occasional appearances in the strip from now on. I love the idea of grandparents who, because of their special relationship with their grandchildren, can do things that parents can’t.

Freshly Squeezed 1/18

My kids are always after me to tweet more, post more often on Facebook and use every available social medium much more extensively than I already do. Luddite that I am, I just can’t quite seem to get the hang of it. Most of it is a stubborn refusal on my part to dive in to that world, but at least some of my reluctance comes from the sneaking suspicion that most of what I have to say is mundane, silly and basically useless gum-smacking, much like what most everyone else is posting.

Read the entire series at GoComics.com/freshly squeezed. You can even sign up to have the daily comic emailed to you each morning, a use of the technology I heartily approve.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I love doing after-Christmas cartoons. The holiday is gone, the new year is on the horizon, and the post-Christmas reality is setting in. Liz finds herself getting depressed as life  returns to normal, but Sam has a ready antidote to the end-of-year blues. If I were prone to deep self-examination, I’d find this gag uncomfortably auto-biographical, but then I’m a guy, so let’s just say it really is art imitating life. To read the whole series, click here.
Speaking of art, I’ve praised my son Gabe for his help in re-establishing my web presence, but I’ve neglected mentioning my daughter Natasha, who takes my pencil sketches, inks and finishes them, ads the type, does the Sunday color, in a style so close to my own I can’t tell the difference. This strip is truly a family affair.

This is actually a redrawn version of a Christmas day cartoon I drew for the old Denver Square comic that ran in the Rocky Mountain News.
I’m Jewish and don’t celebrate Christmas, but I’ve always loved the quiet feeling of Christmas day (not to mention the amazing Christmas lights which are making cold nights here in Denver much more pleasant).
I think the recession must be over, because the lighting displays are the biggest and brightest they’ve been in years. 
Merry Christmas, everyone.

Today’s Freshly Squeezed again explores the vast territory between a golfing man’s love of the game and a non-golfing woman’s complete befuddlement over her husband’s inexplicable addiction. I’m happy to report that my wife, although she still doesn’t understand it, has resigned herself to my wasting way too many of the precious remaining hours of my life chasing a little white ball around an artificial greenscape. More like this one can be found by clicking on the image or by going to GoComics.com.

This was Sunday’s Freshly Squeezed. Some people just know how to communicate with animals. My father had a way with our dog, Max. I always suspected that Dad fed him under the table when he was at our house for dinner, but I never actually saw him do it.

In today’s Freshly Squeezed Nate’s really in trouble. He’s fallen in love with a book. Perhaps the reading habit will supplant the computer addiction. We can only hope. read the entire series at GoComics.com.

Today’s Freshly Squeezed is taken straight from real life. To say that I’m not the disciplinarian in the family is understating it. It’s always been hard for me to say “no” to the kids. Click on the cartoon to go to GoComics.com and see more of the comic strip.
