Intergalactic Cravings

Got my first “you aren’t a real Star Wars fan if you like The Last Jedi” comment when I posted this on Facebook. Geesh with everything that divides this country today, do we have to add a fictional saga to the list? I won’t go into my defense of TLJ here… I can appreciate why it wasn’t everyone’s cup of …

Night Moves

This happens pretty much every night at our house.

Working Stiff

My interpretation of what it feels like to go back to the office after a long holiday vacation. Or any weekend for that matter…

Wrap It Up

FINALLY was able to finish this. Took longer because I have been learning Moho Animation Studio instead of Adobe Animate (Flash).

It may mean nothing to most people, but it’s fun for me. This one has several: Rush and Animal House, just to name a few. I think a velociraptor app would be …

Ice Capades

Ice machines are great whenever you need one or a million ice cubes.
