The Saturday before the end. He thought about going for a swim or maybe a jaunt through the streets of the city looking for someone to punch in the breadbasket. A bad guy, of course.

Instead, he pondered the whims of life; the changes in the weather and the bear that ate his family at an early age. He thought about looking for the bear, but then he remembered that all bears kind of look the same.

He put on some mittens, called up some robot friends, and they met at the pub to have some pints of motor oil. He hated this pub.

This shot is a tribute to 2 of my very favorite whiskerinoians: @wiseacre and @elldub. I have @elldub's art on my body forever and @wiseacre's heart in a jar on my dresser. Forever. Cake.

folliclejuju loves @motke enough to act like school age children by saying something that makes him cringe and go, "i hate today"

Wow what a climax to the final day...
At least he got a few beers in :)

Listen, dude.
I really appreciated that message you left today. And it kinda meant a lot to me you saying that. i think in an environment like this there are always a lot of dynamics in force.. and for all of us to make it to the last day with 4 months of beard & an album of photos is no mere walk in the park.... its hard work.

Congrats on a very strong and memorably prominent album, a great beard and for being part of this once again. =)

Those are two of my very favorite whiskerinoians as well. Well, and you of course. I was reading your novel yesterday and laughed out loud, by the way. I don't remember at which part, but I thought you should know.

mOtke says:
@9shwander Thank you for the kind words. Shoot me an email and let me know your thoughts on the novel up to the point where you currently are if you don't mind. Hope you're enjoying it.

There was a sadness about him that day, but he knew it would be okay. A young boy was walking an old lady across the street, and off in the distance he heard the cry of a kitten in a tree.

Captain @mOtke-merica never sleeps.
