I heard the news today, oh boy...

In memoriam of Leonard Nimoy, who passed away yesterday. He did, indeed, live long and prosper — enriching many of our lives in the process.

In a totally unrelated note, it's not too late to enter the caption contest from Thursday. The winner will be announced tomorrow — it could be you!

The two-year workout

Me, I preferred to take the bus.

Stories without words

Hey! It's time for another caption contest!

After I finished coloring this one, I decided I wasn't really fond of the caption I'd come up with. So I turn to you, dear readers, to supply a punch line for this cartoon.

If you have a caption, you can leave it in the comments, email me or send a carrier pigeon — any which way will do!

I'll run the winning caption on Sunday, and who knows? There may even be a prize for the person who comes up with the winning caption.

Things are looking up

I got some feedback on the cartoon I ran on Saturday that said the caption was OK, but might be better if it was on the more positive side of things. What do you think?

Monday Sketchbook: The next steps

In ward conference yesterday, our bishop spoke — a lot — about how he hopes to serve after he's released. I wonder if he was hinting at something...?

Conversation limitations

That's one of the hardest parts of being new to a language — you can think of a hundred things you'd like to say, but getting the words out is an entirely different story!

Monday Sketchbook: Courage

Today's gag comes from Riley Elwood of the Sherbrooke Ward in Meridian, Idaho.

Turns out he had enough courage to give the talk rather than say no.

It's a tough job

Remember the days when the deacons stayed on their bench for the entire meeting?

It melts my heart

There could be a reason the guy in the cartoon bears a slight resemblance to me...

Forward thinking

...and, at this rate, girls and Valentines will continue to not be a problem.

Hanging up the badge

Yes, Sis. Kerry Jo is hanging up her missionary badge! She's been released — but don't despair! She still has more stories to tell... the kind she couldn't tell while she was a missionary! I think there are also a few gaps to fill in with some of her stories. And who knows what will happen next...?

Cooking up some skills

Any returned missionary can tell you that it's awesome to have a companion who knows how to cook!

Choose the right! No, the left!

In my mission we kind of had to drive by the spirit because there weren't any rules of the road, only suggestions!

Doing double duty

With my Scout trips, we almost always have a chance to pass off some First Aid requirements as well!

The pregame show

It's a good day to do your home teaching, especially if one of your families has a big screen TV.
