'Twas a year ago today
That I posted my first cartoon
(Joe, the Weather God) was the
First victim of my lampoon.

I just want to thank you all
For being such good sports,
Suffering my raillery
With good humour and kind thoughts.

Well, a whole year of cartoons and doggerel, and I have to say that I have enjoyed my Friday morning silliness, it's been fun! So thank you Moblog :)

Also want to wish young 'Private Ryan' a Happy 3rd Birthday!

congratulations on a whole year Maggie, like many others I feel honoured to have appeared in your cartoons, as do the rest of my family. You're a real star and very dear to us all.

Thank you Maggie - for joining moblog, for cartooning me and most of all for your friendship

Happy Mobliversary

MaggieD says:

Wow, thanks folks for all your kind words :)

I have been lucky enough to have a very good timetable for next year so my Fridays remain free. There was a bit of a temptation to go for the extra hours, especially with 2 children at Uni, but hey, all work and no play and all that :)

And Sprocket, only one of those 3 is ours (Trip, the black one) the other two are intruders, Trip is such a wuss that he just lets any old moggy into the house (the two black and white ones are a couple of real Brockley Bruisers) ... Oh yes and the walls aren't yellow they are a tasteful shade of Magnolia ;)

Dhamaka says:

what a great name for a cat!

18th Aug 2007, 18:27

MaggieD says:

Yes, Trip was named by my son, fully aware of it's ambiguity .....

He heh. A year? Really? There has been no suffering involved I'm sure. I was really chuffed to be featured.

19th Aug 2007, 19:23

MaggieD says:

Dhamaka says:

MaggieD says:

Thanks for the link D, and I have to agree with 095 here, they look more like the Blue's Brothers (well apart from the machine guns) ....

Sprocket (along with Nige are a mainstay of my cartoons, they make me laugh so much, and they take it all in such good sport ) ..... :)

FilbertFox says:

i would like to join the throng and say i too love your cartoons.

And can you please tell me if Sprocket is naked, apart from the hat?

And just for the record, that can't be me stealing, i always use my right hand for such activities
