I am a lucky little duckling to have the great family I do. I have three older sisters from our father’s first marriage—he is on his third now, and the old adage “the third time’s the charm” rings ever so true in his case, in fact, I think Grandma Waters is a bit of a reference to his lovely wife.

And Bridget couldn’t be happier. She lives in Poppy Valley, and as the name suggests, come spring time, fields and meadows are in full bloom. Poppies. Poppies everywhere. Continue reading
I don’t do comics without Bridget very often, she is, after all, the focus of the strip. Sometimes I will do a Debbie-centric strip or two, when I want to make jokes about the funnier side of being an adult. Debbie’s life sometimes mirrors mine a little bit, so I have fun creating storylines around her from time to time. Continue reading
I feel like I touched on something a just little bit profound with this comic. How often do parents (or any adult in a child’s life) say contradictory things like, “Don’t let people push you around, stand up for yourself and what you believe” followed by, “you’re not allowed to wear that shirt, I don’t care if you like it or not, it’s too old and I’m throwing it away.

Bridget archives can be seen on the old site
I originally wrote this one for the HUGE PROJECT, but it really didn’t fit within the storyline, so I had to scrap it. Luckily it found new life in strip form. Continue reading
This is one of my favorites. I really do just, love this strip.
For a few reasons actually, one, it genuinely happened, only replace Bridget with me, and Debbie with my DH and up the OTT-drama factor by about 30. See, I get hungry Continue reading
Around the time I first drew this comic, I went to visit one of my sisters. While there I had an amusing conversation with my niece who was 15 at the time. I was talking to her, doing that thing that annoyed me to death when grown up did it to me when I was a kid. Continue reading
