I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Miniature Golf and ice cream - a saturday night staple on Cape Cod in the summer.

I just loved miniature golf.Posted by Hello

(Click on the picture for a larger view.)

When I was a kid I loved miniature golf! We always played when we would go to Cape Cod, Mass in the summer. We would go out for ice cream and buy a tee-shirt, then go and play miniature golf.

My great grandfather built a house in Chatham, on Cape Cod, in the late 50's. It was a Cape style house, and it had 2 bedrooms upstairs. In one of the bedrooms, in the closet, was a narrow 5-foot-long hallway that led to a little door. That door opened up into a small 6 x 6 room with a little chair and a dim lamp. My cousin DeeDee used to read in it, but I never did. It was a little too dark and creepy for me. Rex had a restaurant in Harwich on Route 28 for many years, and some people still remember it. It was called 'The Rexford', and I'm told they had great pancakes, but I wouldn't know. Rex had a weird rule about family eating in the dining room, even if we paid. Very strange. My mom, aunts and uncles would work there in the summer and Rex would house them (the old-fashioned teen age working summer). He sold the restaurant when I was 9, so I never worked there myself. Not that Rex and I would ever have made it together anyway.

I am a Cape Cod native myself, and even though my family has a history on the Cape, only a handful of our relatives were actually born there. Cape Cod was a magical place in the early 70's (back when you could afford to buy a house). The Chatham house was only 3 blocks from Hardings beach, and we would either drive there in the Volkswagon station wagon, or we would just walk. There also was a harbor down the road, and there was a field along the way where we would pick 9 foot talls cat-tails and reeds.
I miss those days.

Cape Memories


When i was little, and my parents used to go to the Cape on weekends in the summer (to the Chatham house with the creepy closet room), they would play cards at night, smoke (with the windows closed) drink, and watch tv. On Cape Cod in the early 70's - pre cable - there were only 3 stations, only one of which came in decent.

On that channel, they would have the Lawrence Welk show playing. I remember hanging out with my folks, with Lawrence Welk on the TV and thinking: "Man, i gotta get outta this place." Every adult had their 'favorite' singer. It all was so sad. I remember being on the top of the stairs, balacing myself with my heels hanging over the edge of the top step and slipping, falling all the way down to the bottom. I remember mom running after me as i rolled like a tumbleweed.

THE album of '77 (or was it '78?)

I could never figure out what he's pointing at...... Posted by Hello

This movie could never hold water today, but it sold a ton of albums, and ranks up there in my mind as one of the best albums I've ever owned. It was a great era.

This is a quick sketch i did. I love the 'man in the moon' symbol, and I also like really long beards.

Happy 30th birthday, Jaws!! Posted by Hello


Because of my age, I was among the minority who did NOT see Jaws in the summer of '75. I saw it a few years later and it's probably been my favorite movie ever since. I often watch it because it reminds me of the way Cape Cod and the Islands used to be in the early 70's with the exception, of course, of all those nasty shark attacks...
It was 30 years ago this summer that this movie made history. I'm starting to feel my age.

Toys For A 70s Kid

A childhood classic Posted by Hello


I loved board games. I had this game as a kid. Never liked the show but somehow I ended up with all the merchandise. I had the Partridge Family game, the lunchbox, and a 45 record. I don't have any of these items anymore.

Rememberances Of A 1975 Latch-Key Kid

I was a latch-key kid. I remember ca. 1975/76 I would come home from school and mom would leave the house key under the welcome mat. I was around 8 years old. Mom and dad both had to work, so I came home to an empty house. I would let myself in the house and call mom at work to let her know I came home safely. I would watch The Brady Bunch reruns, and mom would come home 30 minutes later. One day mom forgot to leave the key so I was locked out of the house. It just so happened that it rained that day. I cried.

One Of My Favorite Lines .....

Recipe For A Single Guy

I'm not a cook. My idea of "cooking" is ordering a pizza. But, I do know how to prepare one meal. This is a family recipe, and it's extremely easy to make. Trust me, it only looks complicated.

STUFFED PEPPERS

8 HALVES (4 PEPPERS)
PAR BOIL (DROP PEPPERS IN BOILING WATER FOR 1 TO 1.5 MINUTES)

IN SEPARATE POT:
· 1/2 CUP LONG GRAIN RICE
· 1 CUP WATER
· 1 BEEF BULLION CUBE
BRING TO A BOIL THEN SIMMER ‘TILL WATER GONE.

1 MEDIUM ONION SLICED AND DICED. COOK WITH BUTTER ‘TILL BROWNED.

DRAIN AND COOL PEPPER AND EVERYTHING. MIX 1 POUND HAMBURG WITH COOKED RICE WITH EGG, SALT, AND PEPPER (PINCH OF EACH).

TAKE MIXTURE AND FILL PEPPER IN ALUMINUM ROASTING PAN.

1 SMALL CAN OF TOMATO SAUCE AND SPOON A LITTLE ON EACH FILLED PEPPER.

PUT WATER ON BOTTOM OF PAN (A LITTLE) AND COVER WITH ALUMINUM FOIL LIGHTLY. BAKE AT 350 DEGREES 3/4 TO 1 HOUR FOR 8 HALVES. 1.5 HOURS FOR 16.

OUT OF THE FREEZER:
TAKE OUT DAY BEFORE AND PUT ON COUNTER FOR AN HOUR OR SO, THEN STICK IN FRIDGE. COOK NEXT DAY 15 TO 20 MINUTES.


The best thing about this recipe is that you can make a ton of them, then freeze the leftovers and re-heat them when you don't feel like cooking.

Get Fuzzy is one of my all-time favorite strips. If I wasn't allergic to cats I would have one. I love cats. If you click on the cartoon a larger version will pop up.
