I know I ain't a kid anymore.  I'm weeks away from turning 62.  I've had to undergo weeks of radiation therapy.  Every three months, I have to get a lupron shot.  Tomorrow, I plan to get a shingles shot.  It's harder for me to get back up on the rare occasions I have to get down on my hands and knees.  All that, I know and accept.

No, getting old in the worst way is seeing people whose work you not only enjoyed but shaped your life in different ways die.

Leonard Nimoy.  Patrick Macnee.  Christopher Lee.  Grace Lee Whitney.  And now, Yvonne Craig.

I realize that, if I'm no spring chicken, the people I've mentioned above (and, yes, there are many I haven't mentioned that should be mentioned) aren't even winter chickens.  The heyday of many of them was around 50 years ago.  But it's just hard to live in a world where these people have been relegated to the past by nature.

I shouldn't complain.  My siblings and I are preparing for next March for my mother's 100th birthday.  In my personal life, I've been lucky.  

But, dammit, I'm feeling old.

And sad.

It also doesn't help when casting decisions are made such as the one that has Hugh Grant playing Mr. Waverly in the new Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie.  Or hearing that Marisa Tomei is going to be Aunt May in the next Spider-Man movie.  (Yeah, it was bad enough seeing Gidget in that role.)

I know, I've gotta get used to it.

But I didn't think I'd have to get used to it this damned soon.
Monkeyshines on the scene
Yep, another tebra piece.  Again, his art can be found on eBay here:  www.ebay.com/sch/sweetshirleyb…

A little bit of dialogue trimmed out, both because I don't want any chances of the subject finding herself on here like this, and also because I don't want anyone saying the most dreaded words anyone who commissions art of real people can hear, "But it doesn't look like her!"

Last year, Mother's Day weekend, I stayed at my brother's place.  And I found myself sharing the house with his grand-daughter, a six-year old girl.  This was just after Free Comic Book Day (which is always just before Mother's Day) and I had a lot of comic books with me.  On Saturday, after my morning ablutions, I walked out to discover my grand-niece going through all my comics.  She skipped some.  I had, for example, an Archie digest which she ignored.  But the Avengers, Batman, and, especially, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, she loved.  And every chance she got for the weekend, she cornered me to ask questions about the various super-characters and others.

That isn't to say she doesn't like more ''girly'' things.  Last year was 2014, and she was six, so, of course, she loves "Frozen."  My Easter gift to her was a subscription to the "Frozen" magazine and a CD of all the songs from "Frozen," which she insisted on playing every day to school and back.  (Her mother hasn't quite figured out how to "thank" me for that gift yet.)

And there's something else she loves, something which I've never really investigated.  At Motor City Comic Con two months ago, I found several posters of this something, which I bought and sent to her.  I just got a thank-you note for them.  And, since she was so taken by some of the characters and comics I liked, I thought it only right to familiarize myself with something she likes.

And so, for the last few days --


I've been watching "My Little Pony."

As I understand it, the series I'm watching right now is "My Little Pony -- Friendship is Magic."  Furthermore, I'm watching the fifth season, so I've got some catching up to do.  And I recently ordered, on eBay, a complete DVD set of the 1980s series.

I won't say I'm a brony yet.  (Did I spell that right?)  But I've watched enough to be amused by one pony in a Doctor Who scarf, and a few other touches.  And I am the kind of person who, also back in the 80s, watched every episode of "The Smurfs."  So I can't be too embarrassed to follow "My Little Pony."

My favorite so far is Pinkie Pie.

I look forward to engaging in discussions with my grand-niece on the series and the characters.
Unaired DvD episode
And here's Tebra again.  Once again, I didn't draw this.  In fact, for once, this isn't anything I even commissioned.  I won it off one of Tebra's eBay auctions and thought other dART members might enjoy it.  If you're interested in more of Tebra's stuff, his eBay listings are here:  www.ebay.com/sch/sweetshirleyb…

And if you know anyone into TG, point them in Tebra's direction.

Am in the middle of a heavy work load at USPS right now.  Will try to get a good reply off to you soon.  

For now, I've recently sent cartoonjoe the suggestion of a meeting between Miss Truth and the great ENF of the 20th Century, Little Annie Fanny.

While waiting, note on my dART site the large usage of magic/science in growth, shrinking, and transformation that results in ENFs.
