Smile of the Day: My Funny Comic Book Store Experience!

Wednesdays are new comics days. So, every Wednesday, Tom and I put our three canine kids in the truck and we drive to the comic book store. First, however, we stop and get our Dunkin' Donut breakfast sandwiches, coffee and tea for dinner (yes, we're light eaters). Last week, I bought a new comic: Hercules- and it led to a funny exchange!

I'm not a Marvel Comics reader, but have always loved characters from mythology, especially Hercules. So, when Hercules #1 came out last week I bought it.

Here's the "Smile of the Day" part: My interaction with the clerk at Third Eye Comics:

Jake, the young guy at the cash register said "Trying this one out?" 

I replied, "Look, if there's a comic book cover with a shirtless, musclebound, hairy-chested man, I don't care what it's about - any gay gay would buy it - so, I'm buying it!" 

He laughed.  

Regardless, the new take on the character, and the great artwork of this hunky superhero made it a great read. I'll be reading this series for sure. - Rob

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
