    A Boy and His Dog. Is Don Johnson hanging about?

    Javier has mad coding skills and mad wedgies can curtail breeding in some animals.

      *A Boy and His Dog. Is Don Johnson hanging about?* Yep…

      Actually, a better book than movie. Written by Harlen Ellisin.

      • June 19, 2016 at 11:38 am

        Last time I read anything by dear old Harlan, I couldn’t get through it and chalked him up side by side with LGF’s Charles Johnson and Hunter S. Thompson in later years. Over the edge whackadoo. Boy & His Dog was most excellent, though.

        *Actually, a better book than movie.* No problem…

    That last panel looks like Sam has an atomic wedgie, NTTAWWT, in this instance

      On Sam, it looks gooooood.

      What Sam is wearing wouldn’t even be called “Daisy Dukes”.

    Since that is the south backside of the DDQ “uniform”…
    I’ll think of something to say tomorrow.

    Chris, sometimes in a sea of bad news, your cartoon is the only belly laugh available.

    I’m sorry to read about your father needing care. Been there, done that. Please pace yourself — neither he nor the rest of your family, which includes all of us, can afford to lose you to illness.

    A disintegrator ray, or convertor for Soylent Green would be a better accessory….

    I am ROFLMFAO. . . . .and my wife is giving me the strangest looks. No sense in even trying to begin to explain.

    • June 19, 2016 at 12:11 am

      Mr Woodman- As long as your wife doesn’t call the men with the butterfly nets, all is good. Some things can’t be explained.

        No, no nets or jackets — yet. I have calmed down. A little.

    This is like a situation straight out of Loony Toons.
    “Nice doggy. Good doggy. Here doggy.” (CHOMP) “Yep. Here’s doggy. Ya want him?”

    I know I’ve read the story. And I’m fairly sure that (somewhere) I have the illustrated version. I’ll have to look it up, who was the artist? Richard Corbin? Got it back in HS or just before college. Aahhh, good times, good memories.

    Every moment you share with a loved one is a treasure. That thought does not come as often as it should when we are young, but as we ourselves age we realize how much more important they are than we are at the time

    It is so easy to imagine a bunch of Hollywood’s useful idiots going for something like this to “Live the experience and get down with the struggle of the oppressed”.
    Any of those feral frankenswine around?

    Thoughts go out to all you dads out there, and to those who are remembering their dads. Special thoughts and prayers of course for Chris and his dad…thinking of them had me digging around my short-lived blog from ’08 and ’09 again and I came across my message to my dad who had passed 15 years before that:

  • June 19, 2016 at 11:04 am

    Happy Father’s Day to all of you who have the honour of being a dad!

    Robotic atomic wedgie machine… so awesome!!

      PS: Slowly recovering from the financial disaster known as divorce so I only picked Naomi level but every bit helps, right?

    I still don’t get how Javier is so good with code and tech when he’s younger than Damon and Sam’s twins…

      Obviously a Savant, it happens.
      The trick is keeping the ball rolling. They often burn out early.

      • June 19, 2016 at 5:41 pm

        Also keeping their mind well rounded on other than Tech.
        He needs to join the twins with some gardening, feeding chickens and learning how to use a hammer and twisting a wrench.

    Happy Father’s Day, Chris. Enjoy him while you have him. Lost mine in 07. Still miss him.

    Drove 700 miles last Tuesday to be with my only son on F’s Day. Then Wed evening he (he’s a volunteer fire fighter – chief of his organization) got called to help out in that Dog Head fire in NM. He and my oldest grandchild left the next morning. Got a text from him that they believe the fire is 5% (9% this evening) contained. There are a shedload of fathers (and sons and uncles and nephews and brothers etc.) working in brutal heat (110 around here – TorC) trying to save lives. I ask anyone so inclined to put those guys on your prayer list. Fighting a wildfire/forest fire is not a great way to “celebrate” F’s Day.

      ” …put those guys on your prayer list. ” Done!
