Hi Carlos and Donna… LOL!!! That had to be the “worst” hat there!!! Too funny Vaca….good one! What a hoot of a hat! Love his drawings, what an imagination!! Thank you for sharing…. Tammie Sunsine41
I saw this on vacadude’s page–very funny. Congrats on the 50 years in December. You can celebrate with the newlyweds in Hawaii! My hubby and I are just 7 years behind you and Donna. Thanks for all the fun!
LOVE this!! (I actually loved Beatrice’s hat..probably the only person on the planet to like it!!)
Congratulations! (nice hat…)
You rock! I can’t quit laughing. Thanks for all you do for all of us MODs. Jan in Indiana
What day in December, Carlos? It’s the 9th for us, though we won’t be up to 50 yet.
What a great cartoon!
Too too funny!!!!
What a great job from Vacadude! Like millions & millions around the planet, I watched the (other) Royal wedding on Friday. Princess Beatrice certainly had to have been wearing the most “memorable” hat!
I’m enjoying all your continued updates – on your travels and on the new clutch. Keep up the good work!
This is hysterical!!! He captured the fascinator hat idea perfectly. We never hear any updates on Ashley; hope she is doing well as a married lady and student.
Wow, 50 years is a heck of a long time. You should be proud.
Vaca is one of a kind! So are you two!
John, that is beyond hilarious! Thanks so much for so many laughs and early congratulations to our favorite Royals. Lots of love, Linda
That is just too cute! That Vacadude sure knows how to make us laugh doesn’t he?
Congrats on your 50 anniversary this year Carlos and Donna. I bet it feels like it was just yesterday that you were married. It will be 38 yrs and counting for me and my hubby this December aslo.
Sending love from Colorado…
Now THAT is THE most fabulous fascinator I’ve seen!!
Here’s to another 50, you lovebirds!
Just toooooo cute for words…. This precious cartoon made my day — thanks so much!!
Yep, that was the worst hat, tho it does look better with an owl box in it! Wow, 50 years , I do believe that deserves to be celebrated for a year at least!!!!
Carlos you are too funny. Always a laugh.
This is too funny. Made me laugh out loud! Thanks.
That is just too cute…. of course these are the true Royals.. thank you for sharing this…
VACA’S back without missing one wingbeat! This is the BEST!!! MORE, MORE!
This hat really is a “hoot”! However, it was not that much crazier than some I saw Friday at the Royal wedding.
What a hoot!
What a lovely and funny picture and so perfect!
Congratulations on the upcoming 50th; that is wonderful!
Just fabulous!!! What a good one!!! Ha, Ha!!!
Vacadude’s cartoons are always so sweet. He must be a guy with a very big heart. Congrats, Carlos & Donna, on your 50th!
what a sight…his cartoons are just getting better and better…june 20 52 years for me and mine…jamma
A fascinator hat on Molly! What a hoot! John, your cartoons are so wonderful and timely…and for the Royal anniversary too. Congrats Donna and Carlos in advance. December is a wonderful time to get married. It was a beautiful snowy night 42 years ago for us.
Vacadude, you are so clever. This is just classic — too, too funny.
Princess Beatrice would have to laugh at this.
Too clever! Love it!!
Thank you for posting the new “Laughing Outside the Box” cartoon! Although I was not completely awake, I loved the broadcast of The Royal Wedding of Prince William & Catherine Middleton on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey. I found The Bishop of London’s sermon to be full of wisdom for this age. I will always associate this both public and private wedding with Ashley and Spencer’s, Molly & McGee’s beautiful Third Clutch, and now with the year of Carlos and Donna’s 50th wedding anniversary! I delight in remembering the tales of how Carlos swept Donna off her feet in the style of “Suds in a Bucket”!
VacaDude showed this silly hat cartoon on his Sunday Show before Story Time with Zorro, along with some photos of Royal Wedding hats. John also showed some screenshots of M&M’s Third Clutch taken late at night. As for Story Time, once again, Carlos and Donna were characters in the delightful story!
May 1 – Polez and the Maypole – recording.
VacaChat always needs Molly the Owl fans with MOD to join to write the stories. Sign up at 2:30 pm Pacific Time on Sundays and write a few lines round robin style. It is silly and fun and you are given time to think. Zorro the Mouse reads the story live at about 6:30 pm that same day! Upcoming title:
May 8 – Something Special for Mother’s Day
Cafe Press has lots of special somethings for Mother’s Day, thanks to Carlos and Chris Adams!
“Gee this is fun, and we are a part of it!” – I never get tired of that wonderful Molly Mantra.
Love the hat vaca, I’m sure Donna will look stunning in it! Congrats on 50 yrs Carlos and Donna…Sherrie
May 2, 2010 – Carlos took an awesome photo of a late-night treat delivery and posted it in this blog entry.
Wonderful, Carlos. How apt.
Too funny Vacadude!
Thank you for sharing Carlos :)
50 Years!! WOW Awesome and hope you have 50 more..
Thanks for the cartoon Vacadude! It’s spot-on, especially after watching the wedding on Friday. I’m still laughing as I type this.
Take care Carlos & Donna, stay cool in this warm weather.
This is hilarious! It gave me my belly laugh for the day. Congrats Carlos and Donna! My dad passed away last Sept, but if he was still here my parents would be celebrating 69 years this Thursday, May 4th. They made it 68 years! Wow! That’s amazing!
God bless you both. :)
What a hoot!!
Priceless! Just hilarious!
Congrats to you both, too
Love it!! Vacadude..such a talent!
He has truly honored you guys and your Golden anniversary celebration coming up.
VacaDude never fails to capture facial expressions of our precious owls, and this one is just great! You and all our owls provide him with good material :-) Can’t wait to celebrate with you and Donna on your 50th wedding anniversary in December. Glory-be, you guys must have been ten years old when ya got married – y’all look great.
Love to Carlos, Donna and Austin!!!
Carlos & Donna, how cute is that? You should use that for your 50th announcement!! Molly and McGee live on, it’s wonderful…thanks to Vacadude too!!
Vacadude has an incredible talent for nailing current events to our heartstrings
This is just the cutest ever~love it.
LOL!! That is very cute. Love it.
Too funny, what talent! I loved it, thanks for the laugh.
This was great!
I don’t get out much. Vacadude does the cartoons? Genius! Like my daughter said about Princess Beatrice and her antlers, “They MADE her wear THAT?!”
Thank you so much for sharing the owl box again with us lately. Each clutch really does have its owln personality. These babies are really good at landing on the ground, in trees, and home again.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Royal on your 50th! We marry until death do us part, and that’s, like, a life sentence…
In Christian love, Lisa
John “VacaDude” Atkinson’s created a website for the “Laughing Outside the Box” series, which began with the following – see March 26, 2010 blog entry:
Lots of free cartoons for the holidays, including Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
There are also free coloring pages.
The first coloring page from 2010 First Clutch (Max, Pattison, Austin and Wesley fledge) fits the 2011 Third Clutch Series of Four! http://www.vacadude.com/img/CP_allfour.pdf
Molly fans with MOD may need to write to Crayola Crayons for a new color – Vote for Molly Rufous! – although various shades of tans, siennas, rusts, and browns exist.
Awesome cartoon! 50 years wow!
This cartoon is hilarious!! I laughed out loud!! Thanks!!
LOL! Very appropriate considering how the Brits like to wear weird hats ;-) Vacadude always pleases! And great to hear it’ll be Happy 50th to Carlos and Donna in December. Thanks again for letting us view the owls. this clutch definitely has it share of personalities! It’s fun watching them “play”.
That’s something to celebrate! Dude is clever…Special plans? Another road trip, a party, etc?
You and Donna are inspirational in how you live and love….each other, family and friends. God Bless you both.
Congrats Carlos and Donna!!
I love being able to watch these beautiful creatures again. Its like meditating.
Thank you so much for doing this for us hoots.
I miss your voices!! lol
Every once in awhile Vac outdoes even himself, and this is one! We get almost a year to wish you and Donna a happy golden, and you are deserving of a very special one. My folks made 66 years before one of them passed on, after spending 13 years on a feeding tube without a word of complaint or sour disposition. Thanks for posting the cartoon, such a laugh.
a giant LOL! thanks for the humor, Vaca, and congrats to the real Royals
That’s where I saw that hat at the wedding in London last Friday on Princess Beatrice not Eugenie. Looks better on Molly with the added owl box, birdie and antenna embellishments.LOL
What a “Greyt” Cartoon
You rock Vacadude.
What a big, happy anniversary coming to Donna and Carlos.
Great cartoon. Vacadude does it again with his touching expressions and timely subject matter. Princess Beatrice’s headpiece truly was “fascinating”, but Vacadude has personalized it for our Royal family.
Congratulations Royals! Thanks for sharing the view as Molly and McGee’s newest family get ready to go out on their own. Thanks again.

What fun!! Loved it and thank-you for the owlbox being up right now. I truly miss your comments, but understand how much work it would be to stay up thru a whole clutch again. I love the new view of the box and thank-you again! 50 years….couldn’t happen to two nicer people than you and Donna!!!….:o)
love it! Thank you Vacadude
Oh WOW — this is one of my favorite, all-time M&M cartoons! Great job, Vacadude!
Love Vacadude’s comic!!!
Made me laugh, and I need all I can get these days, lifes a drag. Thanks Vacadude. mandozee
Vacadude, you’ve REALLY outdone yourself this time!! I laughed myself silly, heheee. Keep up the fantastic work and your keen sense of wit and humor.
Carlos, thank you for posting this too. We are all so greatful for all that you do and have done. A special thanks for all the excellent photos and new video stream of the third clutch. You are all such wonderful and special people and are truly appreciated by SO many. My heartfelt thanks to you all!!
That is great!!! I love it!!!!
Well, I wonder if the new Royal couple has plans to visit our Royal Family!
VacaDude just rocks! What a funny cartoon! Hope you have a big shindig for your 50th anniversary. My husband and I celebrate our 40th in October. Love to the Royals and their owl family!
