IF - Invention

Milo is a kid genius and inventor. Maybe you have heard of some of his inventions like the Perpetual Lotion Machine (Patent Pending) which infamously ruined the Crunchy Bay Beach Party. It's a good thing he has a friend like Sidney to help him test his newest invention the Time Toilet. Inspired by other famous inventors like Sir John A MacDonald (as mentioned in my previous post) Milo has harnessed the power of the twin toilet to race backwards in time to 1994, but a leak in the flush capacitor has plunged them much further back..

A tinkle in time will save nine!

IF - Happy Thanksgiving

Here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving in October so it feels like deja vu all over again this week. Canadian media is so enriched with American content it almost feels like Thanksgiving here again.

Besides the difference in scheduling there are some subtle differences in the way we enjoy our turkey-lisious holiday. Here Thanksgiving is a time when all Canadians give thanks to Sir John A. Mac Donald for defeating the giant squirrels, and creating maple syrup. A traditional thanksgiving dinner includes turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, and maple syrup gravy which is generously applied to everything. In our home after dinner the kids would gather in the front yard to watch Sir John wrestle the giant squirrel to the ground. When we grew older we realized that it was really mom and dad in costumes, and not the real Sir John A. and giant squirrel.

Despite the lack of giant squirrels and maple syrup, I still think that Americans know how to do Thanksgiving right. The Macy's Parade, Pilgrims, yams, and a super long weekend! Pickledog and I have so much to be thankful for this year, and we would like to wish all of our American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!

IF - Smoke

Do you like your buns toasted? I love the smell of a toasty camp fire, and roasting hot dogs. Just don't stand too close, hee- hee..

Forest of Happy Ghosts

This is the artwork from my Black & Orange submission. I cropped the image for my submission, but as you can see there is a whole forest of happy ghosts.
