It is Easter and the traditions continues in Uncle Louie's home, but what to do first?

"A Mechanic's Clock!" April 10 2019, 0 Comments

If you know someone that has a car garage or a hanger and building stuff, you can tell what their day is by the "jobs" they do.
 
Throw the clock out along with the wrist watch.
 
There is no 12 noon or 2:30pm coffee break.
 
See you Friday!
And remember..."Acres of diamonds are under your own feet!"

"The Playoffs!" April 08 2019, 0 Comments

One hand on the pot steering the popcorn, the other cupping his ear to listen to the hockey playoffs on the radio.
 
On the Canadian prairies, this radio is the life line for Uncle Louie and the many folks.
 
Between the periods of play, the popcorn and snacks are getting the attention now.
 
Enjoy the two months of the hockey playoffs folks as I am sure there will be plenty of cheering, shouting and sneering in the households.
 
See you all back here on Wednesday for another new cartoon of Uncle Louie the Millwright.

"Spring Cleaning!" April 05 2019, 0 Comments

It is one thing to do the spring cleaning and another to take orders from a red robin to get things done right.
 
Uncle Louie just can't get a break.
 
Have a great weekend everyone and see you back here on Monday.

"So Hungry..." April 03 2019, 0 Comments


Gumchu the silly sheepdog is so hungry and yet sooooo lazy he will just dream his dinner away.

Ever have a pet that just couldn't be bothered to eat their dinner and yet want you to serve them faster?

It's a dog's life I guess.

Thank you for tagging along and enjoy your day everyone as it is "hump day".

See you all Friday.

And remember..."Acres of diamonds are under your own feet!"


"April Fools Day!" April 01 2019, 0 Comments

All in good humour, Uncle Louie is the first one to pull a light hearted joke on his son Nikko.

Can you hear the scream before Nikko's eyes focus?

Great to have you along, I am sure we will have a prank or two done to us before the sun goes down on us.

Enjoy your day everyone and see you Wednesday for another new cartoon of Uncle Louie the Millwright.

And remember..."Acres of diamonds are under your own feet!"


"Honestly..." March 15 2019, 0 Comments

"Honestly..."
 
In a small town like Semans, Saskatchewan who would have thought of such honesty? Now really!
 
Have a great weekend everyone and see you all Monday.

"Downside of Spring..." March 13 2019, 0 Comments

"Downside of Spring..."

We all go through a looong winter waiting for the weather to warm up. We see the robins return chirping happily and the puddles of water.

There is someone who doesn't welcome the warmer weather...Mr. Snowman is not to thrilled of the sun and especially seeing the return of green grass.

If it makes you feel any better Mr. Snowman, in another six months we will see you again. (But I think we can all wait).

See you Friday everyone!

 


"Daylight Breakfast Times!" March 11 2019, 0 Comments

"Daylight Breakfast Times!"
 
One thing Uncle Louie likes about this thing of clocks going ahead is if he sleeps in he can catch the breakfast from the earlier time and another breakfast for the hour ahead time.
 
Not a bad deal, but I don't think his wife is to happy having to cook up two breakfasts!
 
Enjoy your day everyone and see you Wednesday.
 
And remember..."Acres of diamonds are under your own feet!"

"Springing Ahead!" March 08 2019, 0 Comments

See you all on Monday and enjoy your weekend.

"Morning Face Off!" ( Part 2 of 2)

Sneaking away a moment to see what his wife was up to in the bathroom making faces, Uncle Louie seems to be enjoying the answer!

Always a fun way to start the day I guess.

Spring is around the corner and so is setting the clocks ahead. Whew! What a winter.

See you Friday for another new cartoon of Uncle Louie the Millwright.

And remember..."Acres of diamonds are under your own two feet!"

"What's the Rush?"
 
Can time stand still? Yes! At the Semans watch repair shop!
 
It even goes slower by throwing out what the repair man has to squint.
 
Have a great weekend everyone and see you Monday.

"Dry Yet?"
 
Happy as can be painting on a new coat Uncle Louie is just enjoying the job.
 
Little boy Nikko and the silly sheep dog Gumchu just couldn't wait...
 
Ever had one of these jobs go amiss?
 
Oh well...
 
Great to see you all here, I hope you are enjoying these cartoons. See you Friday.

"Hair Comes Comedy!" February 25 2019, 0 Comments

"Hair Comes Comedy!"
 
It is the afternoon comedy matinee on tv. The Three Stooges! Uncle Louie has a mirror in his hand wondering what of the three he could be...
 
Do you remember these three characters? These three- Larry Fine, Curly Howard and Moe Howard, came about from the vaudeville days of 1922 and in their glory years of 1934- 1946. Many boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen were laughing in the aisles of movie theatres to the antics and slap stick humour of their black and white movies.
 
Do you remember laughing with these comedians? A lot of memories we all have growing up watching I am sure.
 
Enjoy your Monday everyone and see you Wednesday.

"Winter Gardening..." (Part 2 of 4)

Uncle Louie was out front shoveling snow. See the pain her husband was doing with the back breaking work, Maria Ann came up with an idea.

Balloons, candles and a bit of tap water Maria Ann has a plan!

"A Mechanics Meal Ticket!" June 25 2018, 0 Comments

Starting the week off, we all have to "punch the clock".

Uncle Louie's punch clock is the shape of a wrench, after that it is the business of loosening nuts and bolts.

Have a great work week everyone!

See you Wednesday.

And remember..."Acres of diamonds are under your own feet!"


"Young Entrepreuner!" (Finale) June 22 2018, 0 Comments

Wow! How can she do it!

Such a simple idea from a young girl.

Sami took her dad's moto- "Acres of diamonds are under your own feet!". Actually Sami took stones from her dad's farm field and painted fun designs.

Success so early in life, good on you Sami.

Have a great weekend and see you Monday.

"Young Entreprenuer!" (Part 4 of 5) June 18 2018, 0 Comments

What can be going on with a sprint to the 5 and 10 cent store down Main Street, Semans?

Sami is a big thinker here perhaps way beyond her tender age?

Stay tuned...
