Introducing our good friend, always in the distance, Radio Tower!
Wormy Worm goes WAY back. When I first moved to Tulsa in 1994 I joined a company making educational software for kids. We had to come up with games and projects as part of the overall design of the CDs. One of the games included a worm character and thus was born Wormy Worm.
Wormy Worm is a great observer of the world around him. He witnesses the foibles and eccentricities of people and animals and has wise things to say about what they mean. I think Wormy Worm is one of the wisest characters in The Napkin World.

It’s summer and it’s hot so it’s time for Sunny Sun to enter the Pantheon of Characters in the Napkin Dad’s Encyclopedia.
Sunny Sun is positive and happy, a natural life giver. She can get angry though, and sometimes burns people who don’t pay attention to her.
She shows up in the napkins frequently, often representing the idea of persistence. Keep on keepin’ on and Sunny Sun will show up again eventually, no matter how she tries to hide behind her friend, the sweet Puffy Cloud or his scarier cousins T. Hunder and Tory Nado.
Sometimes S. Sun can be seen multiple times in the same sky. That is a mystery how that happens.
You can’t go wrong following Sunny, she will never let you down.

>Don’t forget, you have a chance to be my first ‘guest blogger’ this coming Friday! Go to last friday’s napkin and think of a good quote to put in the blank thought bubble you will find there. Email me the quote and whatever commentary you may have and if I choose your entry I will write your quote in the bubble and publish your commentary with it. Deadline is Thursday noon.
Volcano is dangerous and beautiful. Sometimes it is a she, sometimes a he. Volcano represents what can’t be held in any longer. What is inside you that is going to find it’s way out, no matter what. it is down the road, or maybe in your bed. It erupts continually most of your life, or is dormant until many years has passed. Volcano is never truly extinct, it is always capable of rumbling.
