John Constantine and Doctor Fate


John Constantine Warms up his Lunch:
(Presumably there's a cold pack in his Doctor Fate Helmet lunchbox)


We watched the DC animated movie "Justice League Dark" and now our younger son is very interested in the John Constantine character.  He has not seen the recent TV show, nor the previous Keanu Reeves movie, but I fear it will be hard to avoid both.

Doctor Fate is also cool at our house lately, probably courtesy of the impending release of Injustice 2. 

When I Google "Constantine and Doctor Fate" I get results that suggest some sort of appearance of Doctor Fate's helmet on the Constantine show.  I did not pursue the specifics.

Googling does not reveal the existence of a lunchbox in the shape of Doctor Fate's Helmet, however.

Surely this must be a temporary oversight.

Happy Mother's Day Grandma


As usual, my rather pathetic offering for a significant day is a napkin for my mother.

My kids gave me the gift of letting me sleep in today...
They slept in later than I did, so it was not a high effort gift.
But once awake and reminded that today was Mother's Day, they were quick to assert that it still counts as a gift that no one woke me up early.

I did not wake my mother up early this morning either.
No doubt she was grateful.


Big Brother


The older brother was unable to join us for this iteration as he was engaged in super important online activities at the time.

But I find I almost prefer this picture of the napkin with the younger sibling with his second, superego-like head.

Big brother is always there in spirit if not in the flesh.

Bears at Home on the Couch


Sometimes the bear is your bro:

My younger son really enjoyed Shannon Hale's "Real Friends," illustrated by LeUyen Pham.

"Real Friends" is the semi autobiographical story of a middle schooler's fraught relationships with her friends at school and her volatile older sister who is sometimes portrayed as a giant bear. 

Which brings us to the question of which sibling is the Grizzly at our house?

My vote is: 
Both. 
Obviously.

Baby Groot and Rocket from GotG Vol 2


‪Too adorable to kill:‬ ‪

But trash pandas might not like broccoli. 
Groot offers some greens to Rocket Raccoon for lunch. ‬ ‪

Yes, of course my kids liked the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie‬.

Kirby Fox at the Skate Park


Old Dog with Tricks:

Tanner Fox is known as a social media personality and "professional stunt scooter rider" 

His 13 year old golden retriever, Kirby is not necessarily known for his scooter prowess (although he does have 410,000 followers on Instagram)
...but we can imagine what goes on behind the scenes.

This is another napkin in our series of internet famous dogs for my dog deprived son.

Who should be next?
