Yes, Henrietta (aka Hank the Tank) will be back next week. we had to…um…find a “special” chair for her, so that she could be on set for her interview. I don’t KNOW this report (unverified) from a former Lake Tahoe resident who wrote in to The New Yorker, is about Hank, but given her wily nature, it COULD be! Anyway, this person claims that as he watched out his window, he saw a bear working their way down the street, checking all the car doors to see if they were locked, until finally finding an open car, so they could check for donuts or potato chips. You just can’t be too careful when it comes to possible past expiration date potato chips!
Frank: that definitely wasn’t us. Pookie: but it coulda been! Mikey: quiet, Pookie! It wasn’t us!
Anyway, bears are not the only trouble makers in the clash between humans and animals!

Oh those wild and wacky sea going mammals! If it’s not orcas attacking boats off the coasts of Spain and Scotland, or swimming around the Puget Sound with a fish on their head, it’s surf board stealing otters in California!
Let’s go surfing’ now Let an otter show you how Come on a safari with me!
Back in my college days, I had my nose in a Big Fish Thriller and was completely engrossed. These were the days just after the release of Jaws, and everyone wanted to get on the Malevolent Sea Creature bandwagon. I think maybe there was a novel about a giant squid too.
So there I am, nose in book, and my friend was trying to get my attention, and finally she just yelled in my face, “ORCA ORCA ORCA!!!“
I might not remember what I went into the kitchen for today, but I do remember life’s high points!
This ‘toon (and Thursday’s) are based on the true story of a pod of Orcas attacking boats off the Spanish coast. Would I lie to you?
I am much better at finding “P” words than I am at “T” words, other than Trouble that starts with a capital “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for PANDA!!! The Nooz crossed my screen about some tigers that escaped during a recent tornado that touched down somewhere in Georgia, fell on the fence of the tiger enclosure and wouldn’t you know? Cats, being cats, they escaped! Hopefully they didn’t find any poodles (poodles are what tigers like best!) and maybe only found a shouty blonde congress”person”.
Here kitty kitty!
I wanted to let those of you who *might* miss me on Twidder (No judgment if you’re still there, but I just can’t bring myself to be there) that Substack has this new thing called “Notes” which is a Twidder-like conversation space. In fact, it is enough like Twidder, that it has Elmo pissed off and he is blocking links to Substack posts. (Hopefully without the a**holes, but we’ll see) and I think if you are subscribed to any of the Noozletters there (like mine, for instance) you can converse there too. Is it worth it? Who knows? But if you want to say hi to me there, you can. You can follow this link to get started.
