Today I want to introduce you to some of the cartoons done by humorist Tracy Farr. I have known Tracy since he shared his work with the readers of WinnsboroToday.com, back when I was Managing Editor of the online publication. He is a funny guy who writes about all kinds of topics from goats to banjos to driving a school bus. He knows about all three because he raises goats, plays a banjo, and drives a school bus. He also plays in a band and teaches school.
Here is a little teaser from a recent blog post he wrote: “Today is my brother’s birthday. His name is Scott. We grew up together in the suburbs of Dallas, and like most brothers, we didn’t always see eye to eye – actually, we’ve NEVER seen eye to eye because he’s quite a bit taller than me. But that’s neither here nor there. We didn’t get along and it was mostly my fault. I didn’t realize it then, but I do now.
“My brother and I, although raised by the same parents, are as different as night and day. I went to college, and he got a job. He joined the Army, and I enlisted in the Air Force. He plays the drums, I play the banjo. He knows how to fix a car and make it run like new. I know that if I step on the little pedal thing, it will go.”
Tracy started out just writing essays and blog pieces, but more recently has started a cartoon series titled: Thinking Out Loud. Sometimes it is amusing and sometimes it is laugh-out-loud funny. If you would like to check it out, here is a link to the latest offering on his blog.
Sometimes it is good to do something just for fun. It’s been said that laughing is a good stress reliever and Tracy is doing all he can to help everyone stay healthy.
