Old boys in a fanciful junkyard, some by circumstance, some by choice. The original 24-panel set, called ‘tom’s yard’, was created with coloured markers on photocopy paper. It was my intention to digitally rework 8 of these but, so far, have completed only two, which are available here with(w) and without(wo) captions. I’m displaying the in-progress(ip) ones, as well, which is a misnomer, for there has been no progress for some time, nor do I foresee any. Should you fancy one of these ‘as is’, I’ll be pleased to oblige.

“We’re twice-blessed, Andy. We can accomplish whatever

we set our minds to and have no compulsion to prove it.”

“That’s the thing with nothing—

you can do it anywhere.”

“Know what I miss most about

board meetings? The sandwiches.”

“Arthur, she said, you’re away a lot—I like that in a man.”

"The Star of Bethlehem story began to unravel for me the night Bobby

Clugston and I were lying on our backs in a neighbour's field trying to figure

out which star was directly above Jimmy Hepple's house."

“How’s this for spooky? I used to collect extension cords—don’t know

why, just did. Kept them all plugged together and rolled up in a big

ball out behind the house. The ball got to be nearly 8 feet across. People

thought I was nuts. Wound up losing my wife because of it, and my job.

Then the bank foreclosed on my house, and here I am living a quarter mile

from the nearest electrical outlet. Makes you think, doesn’t it.”
