Cartoons via Cagle website:

A few things:

Can you see the Monster in this picture?
Wow – that starling!!! Birds never cease to surprise me.

Thanks …isn’t nature wonderful.
My favorites are the vintage woman on the phone, the candy hearts and the visit to the doctor ( lol, I’ve been there ).
Excellent post, JJ. I hope you feel better soon.
Good to see you Beata… 💜💜💜
That purple starling! A hundred WOWs! I’ve never seen that species before. What a bird!
Agreed. That is one of the most strikingly beautiful things I think I’ve ever seen.

The American Library Association (ALA) has an Intellectual Freedom Round Table that supports freedom of access and expression in libraries, as well as supporting librarians who are under threat of censorship. I first joined the IFRT when I was a library school grad student many moons ago.
A separate, but ALA-affiliated group is the Freedom to Read Foundation. It is a nonprofit anti-censorship organization that provides legal defense to challenges against the First Amendment right to access information. It is a very worthy organization worth supporting, as is the IFRT.
I was seeing all the cartoons and videos and all of a sudden they all went blank. I did enjoy them the first time though.
