Pat Jones is a master of the mundane.
Few cartoonist have the ability to consistently portray everyday activies in an entertaining way, and Pat is one of them. That alone is a great skill, but on top of that, the one panel Rock Garden series accomplishes this often with the elderly as main characters... not exactly a hot topic. This is a fresh, humbling and humorous look at where each one of us are headed, sooner or later. My favorite line from the comic is, "The man of my dreams has just slept through our first date." The context is an elderly woman speaking to an elderly man who has nodded off on their date. It might be mundane, but it's also very funny, and aged to perfection.

Her characters, including her regular cast featuring A spry senior named Rose and her daughter, are often placed in any context, mixing her seniors, her mummies and zombies at the water cooler at work, or sunning in Ancient Egypt. Wherever the day's episode takes us.

For the very young, it's a look at grandma in a way they may never have seen her. For the young adult, it's a look at the wild side of mom. For those old enough to have adult children, it's a joke on ourselves.
Young people tend to think as one gets older, one loses "cool" exponentially. ROCK GARDEN rains on that theory. Pat Jones takes a look at life with humor that transcends age. Whether talking about Mommies or her trademark Mummies, Pat makes those hilarious observations we all recognize in our own lives. As Larry the Cable Guy says "that's funny, I don't care who you are!"
She has three recurring themes: (1) the life and interactions of a middle-aged grandma with her daughter, her grandchildren, her insurance bills, and the world around her; (2) the shenanigans of ghostly and ghoulish characters from vampires to mad scientists; and (3) the antics of her fictional mummies, whose hi jinx and insights are tomb-multously funny.
Do yourself a favor. Start reading Pat Jones' ROCK GARDEN. It's a guaranteed snicker.
