Buffalo Tom Peabody's blog 2

To the friends of Buffalo Tom Peabody’s Blogs 1 and 2: It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that my brother Kenneth M. Clements, the creator of Buffalo Tom, Gunther Tootie, Iggy, Bubba, and their other pals, passed away suddenly on May 21st, just a few days after his last post to Buffalo Tom’s Blog 2. Ken was always pleased by the many supportive comments his satirical collages produced, and I know he would want me to extend a big, heart-felt Thank You to all of you. We all miss Ken and his humor and commitment very much, and could never replace his talent and dedication to this Blog. As one of his – and mine – heroes (Mark Twain) said: “The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.” May laughter be with us all our days.

Hullaba Lulu: The Dance of the Bots

I wanted to link this week’s Hullaba Lulu video to San Francisco’s Pride Week so I used an excerpt from a 1929 Dorsey Brothers cover of ‘Am I Blue’ sung by Irving Kaufman.

It’s an unusual cover for 1929 and you’ll know why I chose it when you hear the song.

Am I blue

Sunday the 26th is Pride Day in San Francisco.

A couple of friends have remarked on how weird it feels to celebrate Pride
while the Trump Administration kidnaps children for reasons too horrific
too contemplate.

Here’s what I think: when the opposition doesn’t show up, the bullies win.

Happy Pride Month everyone and be sure to check out this week’s episode of Hullaba Lulu on Teagan’s Books.

…running away with me

One night when Harry was five, he lapsed into the unhurried
sleep of the child and had a dream.

A battalion of gorgeously mutilated angels gathered
around Harry and sang in unison:

“He’s done it to you again!”

“Done what?” asked Harry.

But that was the end of the dream.

For the rest of his life, Harry had variations of this dream.

In one dream, Harry is an angel taunting the child, Harry.

Thus from the age of five, Harry began a hunt for God and to
his dismay, Harry found him everywhere.
