      Nice K-9/Teela reference from Tom Baker’s ‘Doctor Who’.

      Always wondered what one fed a robotic dog?

        Electric sheep?

      • February 27, 2016 at 4:20 pm

        Well played.

      • February 27, 2016 at 7:57 pm

        Leela had K-9/Mark 1, Romana had K-9/Mark 2, and Sarah Jane had K-9/Marks 3 and 4.

    “Don’t be evil.”

    If that ain’t the pot calling the kettle black, or rather, rainbow.

    As I said two toons ago, google will not be a benevolent Skynet. Damon should take his profit before the “shit” gets deep.

    Hope the next page is Q’d up…..

    And the fate of Damon’s T-bills is revealed. Thanks for clearing up that little mystery, Chris. Looks like he found a good place for them.

    Since Alphabet debuted, did the corporate motto vanish?

    Yeah, hilarious
    Call ’em off before they need re-assembly after rapid disassembly by explosives

    Evil, one of thy names is ‘google’. OK. if shotgun slugs will not stop the ‘doggies’, Molotov Cocktails, liberally applied, will.

      Unless, like M-1 tanks, halon extinguishers.

    Now Travis needs some leashes to restrain and “walk”the nice doggies.

    Sit, boy, sit.
    I mean you, Travis, not the mechanical mutts.

  • February 27, 2016 at 12:04 am

    So, I wrote the name down wrong, CPO Beckner not Buckner. And according to this local story from a few years ago, the old boy told it wrong or hell, maybe he actually remembers it wrong. Still.

    My short family history …
    Great Grand Father was a corporal in Grant’s Army of the Republic.
    Grand Father was a sergeant in the Army Infantry American Expeditionary Forces in France.
    Dad started out in the Army moved to the Army Air Corps and eventually, when they were formed, in 1947, the USAF.
    When he retired, as a Major, he wore the following decorations.
    The DFC w-2 bronze oak leaves (Distinguished Flying Cross)
    The Air Medal w-4 bronze oak leaves
    The Presidential Unit Citation w-2 bronze oak leaves
    The Army Good Conduct Medal w-1 bronze loop
    The Air Force Longevity Service Award w-4 bronze oak leaves
    The American Campaign Medal
    The Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal w-4 bronze stars
    The World War II Victory Medal
    The National Defense Service Medal w-1 bronze star
    The China War Memorial Medal (from the Chinese Govt.)
    The Army Expert Badge with Carbine and Pistol bars
    (Note: Each bronze oak leaf or star indicates having been awarded that same medal yet again. IE: Medal w-1 bronze oak leaf = two of the same medal.)

    He was a Combat Cargo Pilot in the China-Burma-India Theater.
    He flew C-47’s for the Third Combat Cargo Group and he always said that he loved those “Gooney Birds”.
    He flew 421 combat missions and was shot down three times.
    He passed in 1992 and I can still remember some of his “stories” of Flying the Hump. (Himalayan Mountain passes to China from Burma and India)

    I was a Navy volunteer in ’66 and my brother a USAF volunteer in ’67.

      many thanks to you and your family.

    • February 27, 2016 at 1:44 am

      PS … I knew he had a bunch of “decorations” but it wasn’t until I asked for a copy of his military paperwork from the USAF that I discovered what those medals were. I had seen them every day and never paid attention to them.

      He and I used to argue like mortal enemies but he really was my Hero.
      Typical Father vs son ego battle stuff. I sure wish I had had him write down his stories while he was still with us.

      Hmm it sure is dusty in here. bravo yankee bravo yankee

        I recently came across my great-great grandfather’s original discharge papers from the Civil War. He was with the 21st Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry and fought at places like Cold Harbor and Five Forks. One of my paternal g-g-g’s on the other side of the family was a prisoner at Andersonville. It’s sobering to think of the sacrifices and dedication those earlier generations represent. Thank you for your service, Capn, and that of your ancestors as well.

      • February 27, 2016 at 4:26 pm

        I’ve got a small soldier’s bible issued to one of my ancestors in the Spanish-American war and Phillipines (1898-99). Another ancestor’s percussion cap rifle from the civil war hangs above the threshold – right beside my grandfather’s katana and nambu pistol trophies from WWII.

        Very cool, H_B. My mother’s father fought Pancho Villa with Black Jack Pershing and then later served under the general in France in WWI. He was able to join up on his own, but in the family archive is a letter from his father to his CO, giving Grandpa permission to get married!

      Very impressive and humbling list of decorations, capn. If 0bama saw the list, however, his take would be something like, “Yeah, yeah, but what has he done for us lately?”

    • February 27, 2016 at 9:48 pm

      Army Air Corps became the USAAF by 1941.

    I have NO IDEA what the heck is going on now? Tbills? Google?

    • February 27, 2016 at 3:10 am

      From way, way back, when Jan asked Damon about how much he had been oppressed as a black man, he mentioned how he had sold his company, and that he had a portfolio with $100,000 in T-Bills. That’s from memory. I may be a little off in the specifics. Highly recommend that you read the strip from the very beginning. Wonderful way to spend several hours.

      • February 27, 2016 at 10:54 am

        Wonderful way to spend several hours days.

    Okay, what now? What are we about to find out about Travis the Q?

  • February 27, 2016 at 5:00 am
    Ed Woods

    What has Travis done? Did I miss something?

      It’s just that there seems to be something about him that is familiar to several people. I’m guessing a family connection, something like a long-lost cousin. Others are speculating an old enemy infiltrating with the facial hair as a disguise.

      • February 27, 2016 at 3:43 pm

        I prefer to presume face-value on people until I find active evidence of them disappointing me, while remaining aware that they can disappoint me. In line with that, I do not hold active suspicions of him, while being aware he could be a government plant – their direct, external observations didn’t work out for them last time.

      • February 27, 2016 at 4:53 pm
        Ed Woods

        Got that. I just wonder why he is suddenly being treated with evident suspicion, unless this is some sort of joke being played on him to see how he reacts. I’m pretty much a “live and let live, I’ll keep an eye on you till I get to know you or have reason to distrust you” sort of guy.

  • February 27, 2016 at 9:42 am

    So Wade looks like Sam Elliot, the Sheriff looks like Burt Reynolds, you’d think they’d be used to that sort of thing by now.

  • February 27, 2016 at 9:57 am

    For the first time in I-don’t-know-how-many years of following Day By Day, I am completely lost with this strip’s plot.

    • February 27, 2016 at 3:17 pm

      I am not that familiar with BigDog, LittleDog, Atlas or any of the other automotons. “Bots”(?)
      Are they capable of intense physical harm? If the threat of physical harm is the goal why ignore Samuel Colt’s contribution to “negotiation tactics”?
      Then again considering Where the story takes place the “traditional” Apache methodology might be effective. (ant hill stake-out or ant hill burial anyone?)

      I’m going to get some popcorn and wait as patiently as I know how … (not very)

      Is it refresh time yet? (echos of the children with “are we there yet”?)

      Not yet? ….

      • February 27, 2016 at 3:45 pm

        Nah, they’re just kind of creepy to see moving.

        I suppose one would hurt if it fell on you…

  • February 27, 2016 at 10:19 am

    Nice Goggies eh? They don’t seem the type that would just roll over and want their bellies scritched. Or play fetch the ball.

    • February 27, 2016 at 11:05 am

      Playing fetch seems to be in the program…

  • February 27, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    The plot thickens.

    • February 27, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      Reduce heat and add water.

      • February 27, 2016 at 8:57 pm

        Watch out for scorching
