The Adventures of Old Man Woo


  1. LOL!!!! This has made my day! Thank you so much for the laugh!!!! :)

  2. hahahaha!! Loved this so much - very cute drawings and such an awesome story. p.s. have you been hassled in public lately for crocheting? hehe

  3. I love this! You are such a great artist and creative to boot! :)

  4. Love it! Old Man Woo! I hope you do a whole series of comic strips about Old Man Woo's adventures in crochet. :)

  5. It made me cry, it made me laugh! Two thumbs UP!LOVE it!

  6. Excellent!!! I've no other word.

  7. Tee hee! Thought I'd have a quick look at your blog and now can't stop myself. You're soooooo cute and funny. Thank you. Xx

  8. This is great! I'm really enjoying your work.

  9. LOL.. I bet you will definitely do it 50 years later

  10. Punked! Bwah. Love it. And the artwork is fabulous.

  11. Another hit! It struck a chord. I taught hubby to crochet, he's not very good yet, but he enjoys it. Now he has crossed into the world of crocheting in public. First time was at a coffee shop... a few double takes but nothing major. The second was at a crochet group I found at our library. We were there for 15 minutes when suddenly a woman at the other end of the table shouted "OH MY GOD THERE'S A MAN IN HERE!" He took it in stride, everyone got a giggle, and I think he had more fun than I did chatting with the biddies. You were one of the men that gave him the courage to go out there and do it... thanks

  12. Butterfly Bush Diaries: I'm glad this 40-year-peek into the future made your day! :)

    PaisleyJade: Thanks! No, I haven't been hassled in public for crocheting, at least not yet :D I was hassled once for my coloured hair years ago, so I might have taken some inspiration from that incident haha

    Rebekah: Thank you for your kind, kind words :) You and your enduring blog are awesome to boot too!

    "Never Knew" - Thanks, Caz!

    Annette: hehe I have at least two more ideas for Old Man Woo comic strips… One of them will likely feature Old Man Woomi ;)

    Özer: Thank you for the "Loooove"!

    Miss Julep: I hope I still receive your thumbs-up reviews 40 years from now too :)

    JelliDonut: I'm happy that the comic cracked you up! It's nice&safe to explore the old age while still relatively young haha

    Ysabeau: Thank you for your excellent word!

    Allison Hoffman: Thanks, Allison! MJ and I were watching "The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway" on HBO, and I kept thinking about your big adventure meeting Pee-Wee :)

    greenrabbitdesigns: Thanx for the "love it"! :)

    Annaboo: I'm glad you found my blog! And I also hope you think I'm all those things when i'm in my elderly 70s, hehe

    RollerScrapper: hehe pwned is right! Take that, you whippersnappers ;)

    Susan Stayer: Thanks for enjoying my work! There is much nuttiness ahead :)

    zuperdzigh: In 50 years, I hope I'll still be able to hold a crochet hook, yipes!

    P. Kirby: Thanks for liking the artwork! It quickly becomes unsettling to draw oneself as a senior citizen, though elderly-MJ still looks good in the year 2051, it seems ;)

    Amethyst: Congratulations on your husband's bold and talented adventures crocheting in public! (I've only crocheted in public a handful of times, and never on public transit). My admiration & awe go to the crocheters & knitters who create their work in the public arena :)

  13. Hi Howie, visiting via Just Joan's blog. You have an impressive site which I've really enjoyed visiting. Nice to have met you, best wishes PW.
