It´s an emergency, of course. :)
I have six siblings, and when we were little, we spent a lot of time on the road. Of course, we all needed to "go" at different times. Poor Dad. :p
perfect. Great color & expressions. Reminds me of summers long ago
Great illo.I thought she was saying "are we there yet?" after the 1st mile.Potty stops, my father wouldn't - discipline girl!
Oh I can relate to this one. Last year we had many potty stops for our little girl during our Outback camping adventure. You've captured their expressions perfectly (you're obviously an experienced parent).
hahahhaha! hilarious Jack :) that would be me needing to stop :P
Great job,very funny! We've all been there!!!
Lol. Maybe that is why my dad liked to drive at night on the family vacations. We were sleeping, so he didn't have to make all kinds of stops.
I remember these trips. As a child we would keep waiting and waiting and waiting. Your illustration is wonderful as always and captures that memory perfectly and with great humor.
And continues with about 50 more! SO TRUE! And why is it that Dads never have to go AT ALL!!!
Very recognizable situation!!
Are we nearly there yet?
hahaha, my husband hates to stop, it used to drive him crazy when the kids would have to stop and twenty minutes later the youngest one would say "I didn't have to go earlier, but I do now!"
Very amusing Jack - I remember that too, along with "I don't feel well, think I'm going to be sick..." oops, too late, all over the long suffering dog!
Love the coloured eyeballs, i think those parents better pull over real soooonnnn. :-)
Been there too often!
Oh.MY.gosh...does this one ever bring back memories for me. The 'eyes swimming' eyeballs are a riot. Your attention to detail is uncanny. You don't miss a beat! Thanks for the weekly laugh and Happy Palm Sunday.
Been there, done that! Obviously we can all relate to this one. I like all the boxes and suitcases on top too. Congrats on your book!
too true! another winner jack, great job as always!
Heh, you know I looked at this morning and then toddled off without reading the caption, and I was goin to say that I always make sure I have had a nature stop before I read your stuff, in case I have an unhappy 'accident' while I 'm laughing...Huh Jack, this is a crackup, and the caption is mererely the icing on the cack -- err I mean 'cake' It's even funnier because we can all identify with different parts of the image. Jack, you are pretty good ya' know :)
So true! So true! I had to laugh out loud this morning at this one. Thanks for the giggle and the blessing of your visit to my little corner of the world.
Brilliant Jack!Love your work... the expressions on these guys are ace!
Ha, this is so funny! I can totally relate! Great illustration, love the little one in the back and all the luggage!
When nature calls... Great interpretation of this week's topic, and your characters are wonderful.
ha ha. this is great, and so true. thanks for visiting my blog too.
This is just perfect. You really captured a great journey, down to every detail. Love it!
Hahahahaha! Man oh man, I was holding it in, but seeing this...I must go now. Bye!
Oh yes. I especially enjoy the tenuous nature of the luggage on the roof. Maybe the next stop ;)
Great illustration and very, very, very, very, very wise and true.
Hey Jack!Thanks for the comment. I live near Minneapolis, and we are about to get hit with a snow storm of 6 inches of snow! It is a major bummer, but this has to be the last of it...right?
Wow! This is great! I so remember those potty stops as a kid, while my Dad stood guard. With my daughter, we carried her potty with us! Lol! I remember her patiently reading her favorite book sitting on her potty, as the traffic whizzed by, at 2 yrs. old! LOL! At 16 now, she would die if she knew I'd told that story!What a great illustration and thanks for that precious reminder!
He has risen, indeed, my friend. Thank you for the wonderful thoughts and comments on my blog yesterday. I feel blessed to have made web-friends like you who have supported and cheered my on as I explore the gifts I am just now realizing I've been given. Happy Easter!
Very funny! When traveling with kids one needs lots of patience. Are we there yet?
