IF - idle


I always try to think outside the box with each IF word, sometimes ending up with an odd result like you see above. While the gorilla above may not be idle at the moment, perhaps idle time lead to his current activity! I guess it is better than the alternative activity often performed by others in the primate family.

And, for those who visited last week, I finally painted the "Tango" illustration. I included the caption again for clarity.

I was pwaying wif my jumpwope and I got aw tangoed up.

Hee heee! Love it... and I agree this activity is a far better alternative to the usual primate activity! Eeeyew!

Anywho, nice to stop by, it's been a while... I've been experiencing a severe blogging slump of late... but I think it's all coming back. Missed you, you're doing some great stuff!

You are such a funny guy Tom!! I've seen more than enough real apes in such idle activities! Much worse than you illustrated even!! Love the wee bear's language also!
