New Job!

1 Comment

After two interviews and a lot of nervousness, I have officially been offered a position with the United Way of London Middlesex as their new Community Mobilizer! This is a full time, permanent position working with the Community Outreach team on youth leadership programs and opportunities. I don’t think “dream job” even begins to describe how I feel about this job. I’m pretty excited about the whole thing and can’t wait to get started. Don’t worry though, this won’t get in the way of the thrilling adventures of Rhett and Griff! In other news, you can now reduce the number of unemployed individuals with disabilities in Ontario by 1. While this may seem like a drop in a bucket, I think it’s important to remain positive on these things. After all, if someone is willing to employ me, that has gotta bode well for everyone else!

A sunny day in the park

No Comments

With the sun out in full force and a cool breeze keeping things reasonable, Clara and I decided to take our Cripz work to the park today. After we found the perfect picnic table in Victoria Park, Clara got down to business drawing while I enjoyed the sun and Kurzweil decided to get into a fight with all the sticks under our picnic table. I’ve decided from now on, I will only do work on Cripz if I am in a park.

It’s for the best, believe me.

A mini-vacation

2 Comments

Clara and I decided to have a last minute escape from the city and head for cottage country to visit my parents and pick up puppy Kirzweil this weekend. Sometimes I forget how quiet and relaxing it is in Port Elgin, but I have to say Clara and I definitely enjoyed sitting in my parents back yard reading and enjoying the nice weather. Another highlight of the weekend involved an interesting nature walk through the forest by my parents house which was recently made accessible. Growing up in Port Elgin, most of my summers were spend either hanging out on the beach or ripping around the forest. Unforunately, most of the trails were too sandy and uneven to pass with my wheelchair, leaving me a bit limited as to where I was able to go with my friends. It appears that is becoming a thing of the past though, as one of the major trails has been cleaned up and packed with wood chips–perfect for my wheelchair. On our nature trip, Clara also made friends with a lovely tent catapillar. Let’s not tell her what people usually do to tent catapillars…

Oh and best of all, we got to spend some time at my sisters lovely new house in Sauble Beach. I’m really jealous.

But alas, all good things must come to an end eventually and it’s about time to head back to the city. As much as I love it in London, i definitely have a lot of fond (and important) memories back here. Sometimes you don’t realize how much you love something until you leave I guess.

Until next time,

Jeff & Clara

To celebrate this momentous holiday, and our first month of comics, we are holding our first ever CRIPZ CONTEST!! How does it work? Simple. We will ask you a question.

This week’s competition is for a brand new Cripz: A Webcomic poster featuring your favourite comic strip. Maybe the makers of the comic will sign it. Or, if you want it to be worth something, maybe we’ll get some random person off the street to sign it instead. Your choice!

So your challenge is: in this week’s comic, there is a popular philosopher/historian hidden within the episode. If you can name the individual and what cell they are in, you win! First come first serve, so act fast.
