Earlier this year, I blogged about appearing as a guest at the Wilderness Wildlife Festival in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was a great time in a bee-yoo-ti-ful area that I love to visit! While there, I was approached by Marla Milling, a writer for Blue Ridge Country Magazine. We visited for awhile and she attended my Snuffy Smith Chalk Talk cartooning program. Afterwards she asked if she could interview me for the September/October edition of the magazine. I was very flattered and humbled by her request.  She is a very talented writer and wrote a really terrific story! If you’d like to check it out, click on the link below:

Bodacious thanks to Marla Milling and Blue Ridge Country Magazine!  Look for the magazine in bookstores in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia!

What I Read On My Summer Vacation…

The new Popeye Collection by Bobby London, E-Man by Nicholas Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.

The new Popeye Volume One collection by Bobby London, E-Man: The Early Years by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.  All three of these books are really terrific!

I recently took a summer vacation to the beach with my family and it rained most of the time. Good thing I brought along some good books to read! What does this cartoonist read on vacation? Other cartoonists’ books collections! I read these three collections shown above and when I returned home I had the new Nancy book collection by Guy Gilchrist waiting for me in the mail, so now I’ve started that one, as well!

Even rain can’t spoil a beach vacation when you’re with people (and books) that you love!

I don’t know if you’re aware or not, but in the Gen’ral Store section of this website, we have lots of Hottin’ Holler-themed items for sale. We have mugs, t-shirts, mousepads, clocks and many more items! Among my favorite items are the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith greeting cards.  We have cards for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthday and Graduation!  Check them out by clicking on the link below!

Over the years, I have mailed out all these cards, but, by far, the card I have sent the most is the Graduation Card.  Any family member or friend that graduates from school knows that they will get the Miz Prunelly card from me!
