When hope laughs at your dreams, it probably isn’t a good sign.
Debbie Adams painted Binky’s portrait while he was contemplating the heavens. You can see the original post of it on Debbie’s Art blog.
everyone’s a critic nowadays !
They certainly are!
Which ever canidate gets elected this Tuesday, we always have hope!
HA HA HA!
Hope at least until they start doing things, and then all hope is usually lost.
Main reason I hate politics…
There’s not much to love the way things are going.
Fraz for President 🙂
I’ts almost voting day!
Yes I know and you are going to win 🙂
I know I will too!
We need to start making plans for you victory party! 🙂
It should be a week long party at least! At my Beverly Hills mansion! So all the movie stars can be there!
Be careful who you invite Fraz as some of those could be Zombies and you know what they are like at parties 🙁
Yeah, you’re right. I didn’t think of that. Maybe I can get one of those anti-zombie bouncer guys so those bad guys don’t get in.
Maybe a few bouncers can help clean up afterwards too, I think that Twink will appreciate that idea and you might get extra helpings of wine gums as a thank you 🙂
That’d be a good idea! I could always use extra wine gums!
I wouldn’t mind some
extra wine gums too Fraz 🙂
We can share!
Okay I have a fresh supply of pancakes too so let’s tuck in I am starving this morning 🙂
I’m starving every morning!
Nice photo. Is Binky a good introvert? Us introverts know how to contemplate 🙂
I must say I probably am, yes.
I hope you remembered to put a stamp on it? And FRAZ get out of the post box!!!!!!!
I wasn’t in the mail box!
Maybe I should’ve used a deeper voice.
They still make stamps? ROFL!
They have to have some way to mail all those things people buy online.
Shipping labels with postage. Stamps? LOL!
I still use stamps!
I have not used one in years…
I bought stamps today. I pay all my bill by snail mail. Who’s in a hurry.
Us old fellers need to stick together! Haha.
You are not that much older than I am!
What was that, young girl?
Bwahahaha! You all forget I am “Nana”, too.
You must be a very young one.
LOL! I was over the age of majority by a couple before I started. *grins*
I don’t know if I believe that. I need to see some ID.
ROFL! I have a birthday coming up soon. I will post about it 😉
I expect to see some verifiable proof.
Are you saying pictures with my grandson are not proof?
He could be some kid you just borrowed!
I think that some people
get a thrill from licking them 🙁
If they made chocolate flavored stamps, I’d send a lot more mail!
Hey Winky that could be a
new product for your factory 🙂
That’s another good idea! I think my chocolate stamps will be mostly eaten, though!
Yes I think so too but it will be a nice treat 🙂
I think so, too! Especially the Wombie stamps!
How about some chocolate writing paper and envelopes to match? 🙂
Chocolate notes! I like that. They’d be really good for secret notes because you could eat them as soon as you read them!
Shhhhhhhhhhh Winky don’t let on to everyone who you are or they will be telling the whole world 🙁
Oh, I forgot about that!
I don’t think anyone noticed. Hopefully.
Haha. When did hope become so cruel?
I don’t know, but hope doesn’t seem to be what it used to be.
Aw, poor Twink. I think the boys are playing a trick.
And if I catch them. . .
Binky, what are you thinking about?
Just about the vast interstellar distances, and the probability of intelligent extraterrestrial life ever visiting us here on earth.
There is not a lot of intelligent life here to interact with it. :/
Perhaps life on earth is de-evolving to pond scum.
That is a completely different take on the circle of life…
It’s the Full Circle Theory. And it explains a lot.
Especially when it means we reached our peak in the middle ages. o.O
Luckily, I’m not middle aged yet.
Me neither 🙂
We should all have some chocolate pie to celebrate!
Yes I will share it out if you like, three slices for you and one for me 😉 lol Hey tell Binky to have a look in my side bar, there is a surprise waiting for him and it is called ‘Nurse Halloween’ 🙂
I like how you share!
I’ll tell Binky, but he never lets me see your place!
Well you and all my great Wombie pals are welcome anytime, but Fraz might need a blindfold on some of the pages 🙂
I think I might need that blindfold, too!
I will bring some blindfolds
along with the party hats 🙂
And some treats, too, I hope!
I am not middle aged either…unless I live to be 114!!
That sounds like a lot, even in Wombie years.
Excellent painting, Deb <3
Thanks Red! 🙂
Hey Deb where are you? I hope that you are tucking into some yummy snacks this evening and if you are don’t forget to give some to Frazzy and Me 🙂
And me too, I hope!
Well that goes without saying, I always include all of my great Wombie friends, and everyone in Wombania too, we like sharing 🙂
We do! Did you get the chocolate chip muffins Twink baked for us?
Twink, I am certain there is something to this. You should have hope. What editors can do is amazing 😉
If an editor would only accept my manuscript!
I happen to know of an editor or three…dozen 😉
Maybe I should send my next manuscript to you, then!
That is a wonderful idea!
I hope my next one is worthy.
I am sure it will be, Twink 😉
I have heard Hope Floats. Wonder if they are tasty
I don’t know, but I’m willing to try!
Well YOU would 🙂
My stomach says I have to.
Yes I think there is
something in that idea 🙂
I always obey my stomach!
Unless it tells me I’m full when I’m not done eating yet!
Next you will be saying that it was your rice krispies that told you to do it 🙂
If they were chocolate Rice Krispies, I’d have to do what they say!
They are always chocolate
one’s at my place Winky so
call in for a large bowl full 🙂
I’ll be right over! Leave the porch light on, please!
I haven’t got any porch lights but I have a couple of Skeletons holding candles if that is any good? 🙂
I don’t know. I think I might be scared of skeletons in the dark! Maybe I’ll come over in the morning, instead.
I will instruct the Skeletons not to scare you 🙂
Okay, but I think I still might get scared just seeing them in the dark.
I have told them to wear a disguise, I just hope that they don’t pick the scary Werewolf costumes like last time 🙁
If the skeletons wore a happy face mask, I think I’d be okay with that.
Ouch! That’s gotta hurt!
When the mailbox rejects your work, it does!
Hope is not being very kind at all.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
No. It takes the wind out of my sails sometimes.
Don’t worry Twink they will be laughing at the other side of their pancakes when you are a best seller 🙂
I hope you meant my book, Andro!
Noooo I meant their pancakes, they are always eating those even when you are trying to be serious about your manuscript… Oh yes I see what you mean, yes I meant your book 🙂
I think my pancakes would probably outsell my books. Maybe I need to make the first pancake book. A book made out of pancakes!
That is brilliant, a book about pancakes, made from pancakes and available for pancake lovers all around the world 🙂 Now that has to be a winner 🙂
The problem is someone keeps eating my pages before I can put it together!
Just a minute while I wipe my mouth with a napkin, now what was it that you were saying Twink? 🙂
I thought it was Winky! I think I need to get a locking door to my kitchen.
Actually it was Winky but he gave me a few pancakes to keep me quiet, I was just about to let you know when a plate of hot and maple syrup covered pancakes were handed to me 🙂 I think a locking door could be useful 🙂
I figured you two might be in cahoots! I think a vault door on my kitchen might be more appropriate.
Good thinking Twink and you are right Winky and Me are always up to something 🙂
Yes, especially when there’s food involved!
Everybody’s a critic.
Mailboxes should be impartial!
Hahaha! Even the mailbox won’t give her any respect. 🙂
It’s bad when even the mailbox doesn’t like you!
Hope generally prefers to spit in my face. I’d feel better if it just laughed instead. 🙂
I guess hope could do worse than laugh at you.
Hope sure can be a cruel critic. Go get a sledge hammer Twink, that mailbox needs to learn some respect
That sounds more like a male thing, but a sledge hammer does sound satisfying.
Never good to be rejected from the mailbox before it even gets to the destination. Good Luck Twink!
Thanks, Chris. I shouldn’t have to pass the approval of the mailbox, too!
I just assumed that you added some humor and the mailbox was to the funny part. Always look on the bright side of things Twink.
I thought about being a comedian once but when I tried everyone laughed at me and I gave up.
I find people laughing at me to be quite discouraging. Right before I force them to eat broccoli.
Maybe it just went down funny
That would be a better way to look at it.
Hey!!!! That mail box is very rude!!
Keep your hope Wink…I am just like you, hoping one day I can send my manuscript
Ups…I mean Twink 😉
Hope should never be abandoned! No matter what your mailbox says!
Yes, that’s pretty much the life of a writer.
And it’s hard to avoid it if you dream of being published by a major house.
Don’t listen to them Twink! What do they know? And who the heck are “they” anyways? 🙂
I have been asking that for Y.E.A.R.S.
I think I should stop listening to them as well.
I try not to listen to them, but still all the rejection can be depressing at times.
Well, you don’t pay them any attention sweetheart. They don’t know what they’re talking about. I have faith in you. xo
Thanks, Wendy. That means a lot to me. We all need hope and faith.
I hope he does better than me. I have stacks and stacks of rejections!
So do I, believe me!
In my younger years when I had ambition I used to collect rejection slips. My prize was a complete letter that actually offered me a little hope.
Those actual real letter rejections are prized. I bet you could write a pretty good book, Bo.
I really like this painting Deb, it is one of my favourites, but then all of your paintings are worthy of that finding 🙂
I really like this cartoon Peter, especially Twink’s face as the post box laughs, now I wonder who that was? Winky throwing his voice perhaps? 🙂
Thanks, Andro. I think Twink was caught off guard. As to the voice, no one’s talking.
No I noticed that, and in the second portion of the cartoon even winky could have been hiding behind it 🙂 Mind you he must have invisible feet, perhaps he was in his dieguise? 🙂
If I find out it was Winky in that mailbox, in disguise or not, I’ll kill him!
I have already loaded the pea shooter and am handing it to you as you speak 🙂 Poor Winky won’t know what hit him 🙁
He better hope I don’t catch him!
He is back in his secret
disguise so maybe he will
I bet I could catch him by putting out a tray of cookies!
Yes or a large pile of juicy wine gums 🙂
Maybe I’ll try a plate of both, just to make it irresistible to Winky.
Winky will enjoy whatever choices you think of, just as long as there are plenty of them 🙂
He’ll enjoy them until I whack him! But I’m still not sure he was the mail box voice.
Hmm. There is someone we have not considered.
It wasn’t me!!
No, no. Not you, Fraz.
It wasn’t me, either!
I think you are Chris are a bit tall for the letter box.
You need typo fairies… *and
Tall, yes, that’s it!
I’ve hear that laugh too. It sucks.
It most certainly does!
Aw, don’t listen to that mailbox, Twink… it’s just a disgruntled postal worker!
Ha, I bet it is!
Twink, you are just outnumbered. Peter needs to find you a female friend to help put all the guys in their places!!
Yes, I know. We always seem to be outnumbered, don’t we? At least I have my cooking to keep them in line.
Yes Twink and that large
frying pan helps a lot too 🙂
It doesn’t hurt! Well, it doesn’t hurt me, at least.
I usually duck 🙂
That’s a good tactic when a woman has a frying pan.
Or a baseball bat 🙁
I think a frying pan is much more feminine than a baseball bat.
So is a yardstick…
That’s also quite effective.
I have the same problem with my bathroom scale…
I guess we could all hope to weigh less.
Appliances should never talk. Never.
A mirror that told us how beautiful we looked would be nice, though.
But who would do the voice? I am not thinking computer Vicky is a good idea.
Someone nice and soothing. It could be selectable. Male or female.
I think I would prefer male. I wonder if Bear would do the recordings. He has a wonderful voice.
I think I would like a Bear telling me I’m beautiful.
You are beautiful, Twink.
Thank you, Bear!
Mailbox humor. Hmmm. Fertile ground for idea possibilities. Gonna think about it. I wonder how much the storm will affect election voting. Much of Obama’s base are in the cities hit hard .
I didn’t know that. Well, I guess we see soon enough.
Let them laugh. 🙂
Yes, but I still wish they wouldn’t laugh at me!
Wow so this is the home of the wombies I see so much of at Andro’s and Deb’s sites! It’s a real pleasure to visit here, i’m so glad you came by. And yes I’m very glad we moved soon after those incidents.
Your Hope Laughs cartoon is so cute but awww poor wombie lol/ Bye for now, Nikki
Yes, this is the home of the Wombies and all their shenanigans! Glad your found your way here, Nikki.
Hey Nikki great to see you here, and I hope that you will be calling in on a regular basis, besides we always have spare treats for our most gorgeous friends, actually we have treats for everyone around Wombania but you are definitely welcome to Winky’s share, and some of mine too 😉 lol xxx
Yep, tasty treats for all!
Do you think that is why the mailbox laughed? It was thinking the box should contain pancakes?
I never considered that. Perhaps the next manuscript I send to an editor will contain some mouth-watering treats.
I am thinking a sample just may sway the editor into leave your ms just as it is 😉 In this case, proof in the pancake!
This sounds like an excellent method for us to get our own way!
Publisher was sitting there in post box? 😮
That would have explained the laugh! Sneaky publisher.
Does the manuscript contain humorous content? If so, then Twink’s a fabulous “comedy” writer! It’s so hard to make people smile/laugh (when reading) nowadays.
It wasn’t supposed to be a comedy, no.
ha-ha… love it… I’ve never heard the mailbox laugh at me yet…. surprising!
Perhaps you haven’t submitted enough manuscripts.
….Maybe it was laughing with you…… Yeaah…
I would like to believe that, but the manuscript wasn’t a comedy.
