SCRIBBLES VIDEO - Graham Turns 16

It seems like it wasn't all that long ago that my "little" nephew Graham would be all excited to have a sleepover at my place or go for a drive with Timmi & I in "Uncle Ken's green car". The car went bye bye and so did Timmi and although Graham is very much still around, long gone is that wee kid who I spent lots of time with.

But then, that's the way it goes. Life goes on, kids grow up and things change. I miss our get togethers but I am so appreciative that we had them. Those were very special days.

Now Graham is 16 and although having family come over to celebrate that may not be what a 16 year old thinks is very cool, we did it anyhow. Here's a brief look at that event.

NEW SCRIBBLES VIDEO - Our Annual Costume Contest is Back!

e LOVE Halloween and we're happy to present the return of Scribbles Annual Costume Contest. Last year, because the pandemic had everything on hold and there would be less of us dressing up for Halloween, we instead went with a "Classic Costumes" theme, where we selected top costumes from past years and asked you to pick the one you liked most. It was great to see some of those old costumes again and the contest was fun, 

But this year, we're back to business. It's that time of year again my friends.... be it a costume you wear this year or a pix from a past Halloween, send us your photos to be entered in our contest. 

Here's Ken with his alter egos Kyde, Officer Leavoy and Mr Sock, as they tell us all about this year's contest. 

The winner of this year's Scribbles Costume Contest will receive $10 (e-transfer, cheque or gift card), a Scribbles keychain and a personalized fridge magnet to commemorate their win. 


Don’t let your pain stay as pain. Get something from it. Let your pain push you towards growth.

EDITORIAL - We're Back

Hello Friends,

It’s been just shy of two months since we last met here, so you can bet there’s a lot to get caught up on in this edition. But first I’d like to take moment to acknowledge a few things.

Let’s start with Scribbles itself. Labour Day was officially our 42nd anniversary. It’s hard to believe those little hand-drawn Sunny Digests would one day find us continuing to keep in touch on a grander scale over the internet. That’s a whole lotta Scribblin’ my friends. I appreciate that many of you have been along for the ride since our humble beginnings and thrilled that we continue to meet new friends who are discovering Scribbles for the very first time. That just never gets old and keeps me extremely motivated.

In celebration of our anniversary, we’re bringing back some popular features. This includes a revamped Scribbles Spotlight (replacing Scribbles SuperFan) which kicks off with our much deserving friend LeeAnne.

Also returning is Fortune Cookies. Much like horoscopes, Fortune Cookies were a staple of Scribbles Magazines and although we’ve had to change it a bit in order to include everyone, we hope you will find it very entertaining (as that’s what it’s intended to be. Don’t go quitting your day job or betting all your money on a long shot based upon what your Fortune Cookie tells you. LOL.)

Later this month, watch for photos and stories from Scribbles archives. With over 4 decades of pix and info, we’ll all be taking plenty of trips down memory lane.

Battle of the Best is also back and although it’s featured through Facebook & email and not on our actual website, the results of Series 2 will eventually make it to Scribbles in a future video.

Halloween is just around the corner and that means the return of Scribbles Annual Costume Contest later this month. Scary good fun!

Enough gibber gabber. Welcome back friends, now let’s get at it.

With Love,


Wall-to-Wall Rainbow

What You've Been Up To...


It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone
who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self-love deficit.”

– Eartha Kitt


Back when we were Scribbles Magazine, one of our most popular features was Fortune Cookies. These were similar to horoscopes and in each edition of Scribbles Magazine, we featured a personal message for each and every Scribbles friend. 

We’re happy to bring Fortune Cookies back for a limited return engagement. Since there’s so many of you who enjoy Scribbles now, it is virtually impossible to feature a separate message to everyone the way we did before. Instead look for your fortune under the month you were born then find out how you can get your own personal Fortune Cookie. 


A difficult decision should be put off until you get more feedback, but don’t procrastinate too long or it will only make matters worse. Your lucky numbers are 5, 15, 25 & 45. 


Don’t let the opinions of others sway your thoughts. Only you knows what is best for you. Your lucky numbers are 6, 16, 19 & 25.


This is a good time to make a large purchase you may have been putting off. Be careful not to jump to conclusions when a friend shares some shocking news. Your lucky numbers are 4, 15, 27 & 36. 


Stop putting on a brave face and let your true feelings be known. Something you usually enjoy will become frustrating. Your lucky numbers are 8, 14, 22 & 37. 


You will encounter someone you initially are put off by, but you will soon build a unique relationship. A short trip is in order.  Your lucky numbers are 10, 17, 26, & 41. 


A new hobby or interest will take you in a direction you never saw coming. Have faith that all will end well. Your lucky numbers are 3, 11, 24 & 40. 


You’ve been avoiding someone or something and it is causing you much grief. Face your fears head on for inner peace. Your lucky numbers are 1, 18, 27 & 37. 


Despite your outgoing nature, you are actually feeling quite introverted. Be confident and you will feel far more at ease. Your lucky numbers are 9, 20, 29 & 43. 


It’s a good time to volunteer your time or resources. Others will bring out your generous nature. Your lucky number are 11, 23, 28 & 38. 


You may feel like you have fooled everyone but someone will see through your illusion. Rethink your position. Your lucky numbers are 2, 17, 26 & 44.  


Someone you least expect is thinking of you right now. Be open to new adventures. Your lucky numbers are 4, 22, 31 & 47. 


The fall season isn’t the only thing that’s changing in your life. Go with the flow instead of trying to do it your way. Your lucky numbers are 7, 19, 29 & 43. 


We want to offer personalized Fortune Cookies to a few select friends. Each edition, we will pick a few friends and feature their very own fortune. If you would like to have a personalized Fortune Cookie, email, text or message Ken and your name will be added to the list.



We couldn’t very well feature personalized fortunes and not include you my dear little sister. Here’s your fortune... A new way of doing things at Brock will turn out to be more enjoyable than you anticipated. Take time to relax, even if it’s just for a few minutes. 


A call, email or letter from a long lost friend will come with exciting news. Listen to the voice in your head, it could be telling you something. 


Time to get back to a group or activity you have been putting off because of the pandemic. You will find something in your apartment you thought you had lost a long time ago.


A good time to reconnect with someone from your past. An unexpected windfall will come with a unique stipulation. 


An amusing encounter in the laundry room will lead to a special new friendship. A letter will arrive containing amazing news. 


An offer that sounds too good to be true will make you rethink interest in it. An outdoor activity will prove to be quite beneficial. 


Your love of all things Halloween will bring you to a spooktacular situation, don't be afraid to take a chance. 


Music will take you in an unexpected direction. Go with the flow even if you aren't really feeling it. 


Don't let others rush you into making an important decision. Online shopping will be rewarding.


Only time will tell if an investment is really worth what it said it would. An old friend will reach out to you with an unusual request. 


This is a great time to relax, kick off your shoes and chill. Recharging your battery will be beneficial.
