Twitchy – Gargleblaster Microstories #229

Eleanor finally found Howard in his bomb shelter.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

      Luckily his wife went looking for him. Who knows how long he would’ve stayed down there! He could’ve lasted for years. Thanks so much. I’m glad you enjoyed this. 🙂

    Good thing Cleveland made it. It would be sad if Cleveland went away. I assume; I’ve never actually been. 🙂
