At the Tea Party and/or Nachos Anyone?

This political cartoon was drawn with a Fine Point Sharpie & colored and edited in PhotoShop Elements.

My mom loved Raggedy Ann & Andy. She made Raggedy Andy dolls for me and each of my five brothers when we were little. I think she was hoping to make a Raggedy Ann doll, but she had to wait until I was 19 before she could. I remember liking mine very much as well as my Grover stuffed monster. Eventually, I grew a little older and these very innocent toys stopped being important (publicly).

  1. Another Great cartoon. If you watch close, out of the corner of your eye, sometimes you can catch them talking. I remember that one of my sisters had a Raggedy Ann that was as big as she was at 6 or 7yrs.old. Then grandma made sock monkey dolls for all the kids. I wondered back then if they talked to each other when no one was looking. I think most of the dolls have survived. Even Ann is still in decent shape.
    Now my wife and I make the monkey dolls for grandkids, and other relatives kids as well as sell them at flea markets and festivals. If I remember I’ll post some pics of them.

  2. I still have a stuffed clown that I got when I was a baby. It’s in better shape than I am. Really like your drawings. Thanks for another like on my blog.

  3. I always loved my Raggedy Ann. It seems that she and her partner Andy have more sense than many real people when it comes to health insurance. Great post.

    • I have this stuffed toy vulture my mom made for one of my kids that I just could not give away. It lurks in my closet and whispers to me when I’m getting dressed. It makes a lot of sense, too. I’ve been wanting to post about him. I think I might as the job situation gets more dire.
