Okay, I truly doubt that is going to be a "Happy Trip"for Brownsie or that it will get him home.Hopefully Joe will step in and put a stop to it before Brownsie becomes a permanent splat on the wall.Speaking of happy trips my daughter, Tina, said the military flight out of the Middle East to the States was long but not bad. From the East Coast they sent her on a commercial flight to Milwaukee and then after debriefing she took the train from Milwaukee to Minot ND.Tina has used the train many times and says that the Amtrack service is good. I myself have only been on the train once and that was a Cub Scout thing traveling just 10 miles so we could "experience" it. What I remember from that 10 mile trip 60 years ago is that it seemed to go through unspoiled beauty.My point: If you are plan...

I'll have another post when everything is complete but I wanted everyone to know that The End Is Near!The Gallery is really shaping up.No pictures of my office space yet. It is such a mess that I went into panic mode looking for my notary stamp for a closing tomorrow¬†(remember that I am now making a living as a notary... having my stamp is helpful) ūüėā.¬†

We could use some rain around here (the Minot ND area). It has been a very long time since I remember a real "Thunder Boomer" and frankly I love a good rain storm.Unlike Joe in Timmothy's comic strip, I actually sleep better when a good rain comes in the middle of the night. I wouldn't know if the rain made me go to the bathroom, I get up most nights any way to do that.If there is anything making me walk around like a Zombe these days it's the experience of moving my business. Just like the home owners who list with us or the home buyers trusting in our word I wonder if the move is what is best for me and Timmothy. And then there is the cleaning, painting, and do I need an electrician or not.At the risk of droning on I just want to clarify a couple of things. 1) I am in a commercial bui...

I am getting too old for this.I am at that age where I really had hoped to never make another move either at work or at home again. At least this move is an office move within the same building so no packing or shipping will be involved.As you can see from the picture at the top of the post I have some prep work to do painting and filling in holes and cracks. The good news is that I am more than doubling my space and my rent will be a quarter of what it is now.Obviously the down side is the decent DOWN the steps and that there is no elevator available. More GOOD news is that the Art Gallery can use all walls down the steps, in the halls, and of course in the office and the gallery area it self. The feature picture at the top really only shows about half the space of the new Gallery (tha...

I am always showing pictures and videos of Minot ND during a blizzard, I thought it may be a good idea to let you know that no blizzards are predicted during the North Dakota State Fair that will be starting this Friday 07/22/2022. So come to Minot this weekend or coming week and I will give you my personal guarantee that you will NOT experience one of our North Dakota blizzards while you are here.

One more set of Titus and Philemon cartoon strips to end  your day. I just decided to pick three that are plain old funny (no theme here). Enjoy and have a good evening.To see the other Titus & Philemon comic strips I posted today click here.Timmothy is my 20 year old son. He was diagnosed as having high functioning autism at the age of 3. He would/will struggle to carry on a conversation with you yet be is a great communicator through his art. He has two comic strip books out (like Garfield or Peanuts) that we sell over the internet and he is involved in the arts at Minot State University.Every day I thank God for entrusting this brilliant, sensitive young man to me.You can visit the Timmothy Timm Art Studio and the Titus & Philemon Art Gallery at 201 Main Street South in Downtown Mino...
