Thank you for visiting.

Hello, my name is Othen Donald Dale Cummings. My mother had a disabling stroke a few years ago. I began care-giving for mom and we started doing art and writing projects together.
We call these projects "A Pet Banana Production" and they have given my mother hours of joy during her recovery.
This blog is a collection of these projects and also some random stuff we enjoy sharing. We have self published many of the stories and poetry I have written for and with my mother and would love for you to check them out!
Thank you and if you buy one of our books it is very appreciated because every sale helps us immensely!

Lonely Traveler

He was a lonely traveler
His thumb stuck out in the cold,
He was a lonely traveler
Down the old road he strolled,
He was a lonely traveler
Trying to make his way home,
He was a lonely traveler
Then he found a little Gnome,
He was a lonely traveler
Under the stone man sat a toad,
He was a lonely traveler
Until with him the polliwog rode.

Those eyes peaking out at you in the dark...

Curiosity Rover (From I.M. Nobody's Blog.)

The Curiosity Rover vaporizing rocks on the planet Mars! Nobody is standing directly behind the rover. In fact Nobody is standing in front and to the left and right of the rover. What an enigma! Only on Mars! The rover landed in 2012. Nobody landed in 2011.
