    gonna drag it on another day, huh?

  • JTC

    Back in the (real) world?

    You dog.

  • formwiz

    Sam is rushed to the hospital and, in her delirium, she is whisked to the Redvolution.

    Or something.

    • Brasspounder

      This.

      • Brasspounder

        Chris, Redvolution is off to a very promising start. I’m loving it. Thank you!

  • Doc Savage

    da hell? Zed?

  • Tomp

    One of the “dogs”?

    • Swansonic

      Or two. Don’t know the lifting capacity of them…..

    • Tom Z.

      That would be my guess.

  • Greg B

    Apparently the Force is strong with someone.
    Just don’t know whom, as of yet.

    • Grunt GI

      Redline? Wasn’t that Sam’s superhero alter ego?

      Argh, nobody leaves us with a cliff hanger toon better than Chris…

    Oddly, the car is STILL smiling.

  • H Hefner

    maybe Sam has some inflatable cushions

  • Damnit man, you know we’ll be back tomorrow. Why do you do this?!?!

    • Greg B

      You know, you answered your own question. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • True enough, Greg. True enough.

    Ooh, a Sunday sized strip on a Saturday, bonus! and hey, Kudos to Skye, she at least looked like she was giving it her all to try and lift the car off Sam.

  • Doc Savage

    Twins? now you really got me wondering…..

    Dogjack ex machina.
    deus ex machina: a god introduced by means of a crane in ancient Greek and Roman drama to resolve a plot or extricate the protagonist from a difficult situation.
    The dog is the crane.

    I’m with others. Jack stands and other holding up backups are in abundance when I go under a car. I had a 4×4 on 4 jack stands on concrete with other backups when I dropped the transfer case and gearbox to get to the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing that needed replacing. All indoors. Someone kicked the front door in where I had just temporarily put plywood to replace the glass that had been kicked in the day before. This was when Miami Beach had lots of low level crack addicts due to the city intentional neglect so the land could be bought up cheaply for redevelopment, and Jimmy Wussy Ass Carter letting Fidel Castro flush his jails and mental institutions on us among the Mariel boat lift. We got up to almost a murder a week back then, and there were only 2 officers in marked cars patrolling all of South Beach at night then.
    I was under the truck when I heard the crashes in the front room. That was a ‘fun’ confrontation when I made it all the way out and to the front room.

    Yesterday’s dropped car did not bring out good feelings. I will now be more justly paranoid when under a car or truck. One slip up and it isn’t a nip that slips.

    Good on Skye for trying to lift the car. Using another jack would have been a better idea if one was there. She must see her sister lying in a pool of transmission fluid and it strikes her as her sister is lying in a pool of blood. She can’t even look at her sister lying there.
    Sam will bounce back. Maybe she will play mechanic a little closer to the mechanical and physical rules in the future. But then where would plots and circumstances come from?

  • Hardball

    My cousin and I lifted a 67 Mustang FB high enough for my Dad to escape trapped with the right front wheel well edge on his back.

  • WayneM

    Did I mention how much I like cliffhangers? Stay ‘tooned for the next episode of Soap…

  • Halley

    All’s good that ends good.

  • CuriousB

    I think the “dogs” came in the nick of time.

  • Blackrifle081

    I do hope this is the forward or First chapter to Sam’s book being illustrated,..

  • Delilah T.

    Chris, you sneeeaaky guy!

    Okay, I’m in. The car lifted itself right off Sam, right? (Gigglesnortt!)

    I love a really good mystery. Can I have more Zed, please????

    • Pamela

      Delilah
      I agree the Ladies need more Zed, Damon, Tucker and Travis.

      • Delilah T.

        Yes, we certainly do!

      • Fox2!

        Don’t forget ‘Toly.

  • Spin Drift

    Is it going to be a “Dog Day Afternoon?” A”Mid Summers Night Dream?” or “Talledega Nights?” Stay tuned to tomorrow for the possible conclusion .

    Who set the jackstand back up?

    A car falls when both jackstand and the jack itself have slipped. The first response I would have would be quickly replace the jack and try to re-lift the car that way.

    Too bad they don’t just get a real lift installed on their place.

    • JSStryker

      I wouldn’t be surprised if a proper lift showed up after this with a card stating “From Japan with love”

      • Fox2!

        You only live twice?

  • Alex J

    Something about being “all jacked up” keeps running through my mind. My abject apologies for a bad pun.

  • Sunday,maybe mon toon may be delayed.Overdid a workout and canโ€™t sit down because the ol quads are inflamed.Damn aging carcass.

    • MasterDiver

      Take it easy and rest up Chris. This weekend I discovered my rotator cuffs are so far gone, I can’t even rake the lawn. So the wife rakes, and I bag. Thank Poseidon my SCUBA muscles are still in good shape.
      We wait for the next update in joyful anticipation.

      Zar Belk!

      Epsom salts in a warm bath, a great 18 year old sipping bourbon and I’d kiss and make it better but you are too far away.

      • JTC

        Silly girl. Warm salts bath with a great 18 year old sounds great but would probably exacerbate Chris’ muscle condition to say nothing of the criminal charges for providing her with booze.

    • Grunt GI

      Oh, man, quads are the worst…especially for the half century crowd.
      ๐Ÿ™‚

      Those bastards hurt for DAYS!

    • Fox2!

      Chris,

      Take care of yourself. We’ll survive ’till Monday, even Tuesday if need be.

      Somehow.

  • pyrodice

    I’m still quite concerned because I thought she was under the DRIVER’s side! :-O
