RIP. We miss ye.
My, how time flies.
Perhaps your most powerful cartoon.
Very powerful, indeed…
Repel any swine.

Zed’s a good son and a good shot. I visit my dad and mom in a similar, if more civilized venue. Great art, Chris!
Mine are at Ft Sam Houston National Cemetery here in Alamo town. Mom got the bottom bunk while Dad’s in a beautiful hand-carved mesquite wood box in the top bunk. We try to go there at least a couple of times a year between major holidays (if you go on a holiday you have a hard time finding one of those green metal flower holder thingies) but there up on a wall where I can look at them and remember them when I want. The photo was taken a couple of years before my mom passed and I am almost as old as my mom was when the photo was taken. It’s kind of spooky.

Well done, Chris!
I know you miss your dad as much as I miss mine. I just try to always remember him in his best years as a good man, husband to my mom and father to us kids. Not his final months. Those were hard but his only complaint was that the Lord wouldn’t take him yet and he was ready to go. He didn’t want to be a burden on us.
Damn it’s dusty in here.
Take care Chris.
Deep. Very deep.
Today’s DBD begins with “Rhett”, just as I begin to read “Gone With The Wind”. Cosmic synchronicity…
A bit of a dust control problem here, too.
Beautifully-expressed, Mr. Muir.
Well done sir. Taken from laughter (“…I’m not cleanin’ ’em”) to deep reflection in short order. RIP.
God bless, CM.
Yesterday makes 7 years since my grandfather passed. He was ready. The family has been passing some of his last sentiments to each other, since he dictated his final thoughts to my aunt. Some of the family were too young to appreciate that back then, but I think they will now. Definitely seemed like pollen season this weekend. I have about 3 years of Grampa’s essays that I stashed in a folder named “wisdom by Grampa” that I plan to send back out. It seems no one else saved them. I wish I had saved them all.
Words fail. Feelings in overdrive.
Hey , just drive the herd of wild hogs towards the Antifa crowd .
Problem – and cleanup – sorted .

Nicely spoken, Chris, remembering your loss. Sigh. The wheel turns, for all of us.
Best memories: Mom chasing us kids down the street with a broom. All of us laughing so hard we could not run; she could not swing…
Dad telling us about the photo of him smiling in the sun out side a little shack in WWII, Belgium. He was in bomber clothes with helmet on and a 30 cal carbine hanging from his hand. His boys blew up the shack just after he walked away.
Too much aviation gas in the oil feed. No injuries though.
Yeah… Pretty dusty.
I’m guessing that old horseman watches over not just his special hill but all he surveys, his ranch and his family…
As to power and poignance, this is excellent but I would have to direct your attention to the series surrounding 7/26/2016 for that.
Beautifully moving. Chris speaks volumes with his art work.
My all-time favorite is from a strip after President Reagan died. Damon’s thought bubble “Clinton was from Hope. Reagan defined it.”
My hat’s off, Chris. One of you best so far in a chain of outstanding posts.
Hate to burst y’all’s bubble, but this reinforces the doctrine of Spiritism, which is not Biblical. Apparently most people don’t know this, but nowhere in the Bible is there life after death in the sense that your ghost is wandering about, observing the world, or that it goes to heaven or hell, or that it’s aware in any way whatsoever. That’s all made-up, pagan, Roman, Jesuit nonsense. It’s also the doctrine of the lie of satan, who told Eve, “You will not surely die”.
Nope, the sin in Eden introduced death into the world, and dead is dead and that’s the end of you. The Scriptures are quite clear on this matter. Next comes the second advent, then the resurrection, then judgement.
“But Lyle; I actually SAW my dead father (mother, grandfather, wife, brother, or etc.)!”
No you didn’t. That’s a trick. Stop falling for the lie! That’s all thoroughly examined in Scripture.
Lyle, you seek to replace one doctrine with another. That’s fine, to put it crassly, belief is like assholes, everybody has one.
I do find it disrespectful for you to proselytize yours in this context. Sometimes it’s best to just STFD and STFU.
I do that a lot. Discretion over desire to blather.
So, you are a non-believer!?
Why should we believe you?
“nowhere in the Bible is there life after death”
And Jesus said to him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
– Luke 23:43
Neither, the old testament, plus the other Hebrew texts and the new testament agree with your pronunciamentos. Go elsewhere with this filth.
Apparently Daa is only missed – but never forgotten.
If you had a good dad; appreciate how lucky you are. My father left when I was seven. My step-father had the driest eyed funeral in history. I’m almost 68 and still carry the emotional and physical scars. Would had been better for everybody if I had shot him before I left.
When my mom passed, me, my brother, and my sister took her ashes to mountainous forest and spread her ashes under a tree.
Hate to steer this conversation from the remembrance of loved ones.
I can’t see fletchettes (small needle darts) being any good against the hair, hide, skull and bones of a wild hog.
They work real nice against the hair, hide, skull, bones and black masks of a wild Antifa…
I saw fletchette rounds, shot from a tank, nail VC to trees. True, the smaller versions might be less effective on feral hogs. But, the hogs would feel the hurt.
We will repel no swine before it’s time.
Does Wade’s equalizer use lightening bolts or heavenly fire for ammo….
Talk about over the hill. Well, me anyway, him not so much.
Thanks for the visit CM, enjoyed it immensely.

Usually his links go directly in. Not this time.
To summarize: Two good people met and good thoughts were exchanged and good times had. And one met the other’s good wife.
See. I likely can guess well.
Try this instead:
Thank you Miz P…don’t know WTH happened with that link. :I
Where’s that Texas justice I’ve heard about?
‘Find the motherf***ers who would do this’: GoFundMe set up after Antonio Basco’s car stolen hours after his wife’s funeral in El Paso
Made the national news when all those people showed up to help him bury his wife. Kind people even got his car serviced and fixed. Animals stole that car not a day later and deliberately wrecked it, hard, it’s junk now.
Time to hunt some wild pigs.
The effect on so many peoples lives by something like this can be so great, but, to have it happen in under these circumstances emphasizes that those who do this are, by their own choice, not part of our society.
Absent Comrades…(raises Glass)
An awful lot of dust flying around testosterone country today. When will you guys put on your big man boxers and cry like the rest of us?
A visit to Washington DC might do a heck of a lot of good, if it is not too much, or our job.
As to those pesky Russians, A deemed Russian site has some awfully good analysis. I always just take the info in and compare it with all sources. Heard this before from other sources.
I still like the description of the Trilaterals on the comedy cop show Barney Miller.
Can you imagine a segment like that being allowed in what passes for entertainment teevee today? Pure truth from one of my all-time favorites.
No. I couldn’t. It doesn’t follow allowed ideas.
The 2:28 cut is included at the site.
Now if the boogeyman was made woke as a shadowy white nationalist/supremacist conspiracy org complete with naming names (guess who would be at the top of their list), there’d be features and spinoffs on every channel by the end of the week.
Yes. there would.
Even without it they will continues their delusional fantasies as that follows all the Communist doctrine from the 1950’s and 1960’s and all of the enemies of Western Civilization that seek to destroy it. the list is long. Alinsky. Marcus, Fabian Socialists, Obama, Soros, Merkel, Warren, Bernie, Bill Ayers. Just to name a few.
That 1990’s defector to the West that actually overthrew countries also made several hours of lectures in which what has led up to now is described in order for us to avoid what the enemies have planned.
Recent reports were that the editor of The New York Tims designed his rebuilding of the New York Times on using a false narrative about President Trump and the Russians colluding, no matter how much he knew that everything his paper put out was false.
So the former “Newspaper of Record is like all else produced by most of the media, lies, fabrications, agenda items, and delusions, all meant to destroy those who desire a strong United States of America.
And they will continue the gas-lighting. ( That mans lies: for those from Rio Lindo)

Lost my dad this past January, after a lengthy illness.
Now, there’s something wrong with my eyes.
