Day By Day


  • You dirty dog, Chris! 😉

    I love the stink eye Sam is giving right now. ROFL

    • Unca Walt

      My wife got mad as hell one time just because I hugged her sister.

      Her sister was in the shower at the time…

      • steveb919

        Ya don’t say. Imagine her being so picky.

      • Solaratov

        Sometimes women just got no sense of humor at all.

        You’d think that she’s appreciate that you’re making the effort to get along with her family.

        Wimmen…can’t live with’em……

  • Scoutergreg

    So, let’s hope this means the Double D attack is also part of the nightmare!

  • I take it this is YOUR “Trick or Treat”, for your fan-base, Chris? Hehehe.

    • Chris Muir

      actually, sunday’s is!

      • Bill G


      • Gideon Reed

        OK if I keep the Evinrude thoughts for a while?

      • I used to get the paper every day and read it through and through…compared to most the Tampa Tribune is not totally in the tank for the progs. But of course print media got their lunch eaten by the web and I started get my news there, just taking the Sunday paper, mostly for the comics and the sale papers for my wife.

        Now DBD is my every day comics/editorials source, and just like the papers, Sunday is bonus day, and I can enjoy it without my blood pressure peaking or considering tracking down G. Trudeau and torturing him the way he tortured me.

        Thank you for that, Chris. And btw, remember The Big Henry? Pretty cool old guy and he and I had a pretend poker game where the stakes all went to DBD during the fund drive. Well, soon after the fund drive was done, I didn’t see him here anymore. So I went to his blog where he talked about politics and science (I guess he’s a retired rocket scientist or something?), and it had stopped updating too, and now I can’t find it. Since I figure you had his email contact for the fund drive, I thought you might be able to check up on the old bird. Not enough intelligent conservative minded people around as it is, and I would hate to think he broke his earthly bonds, which he had said he wouldn’t mind so bad, and neither would I if it weren’t for leaving wifey, kids, and grandkids without me to run interference for them…and I’d especially hate for him to miss the upcoming potus race, in the longshot hope that it will be the beginning of a new era for our Republic.

        • Chris Muir

          I emailed him,we’ll see.

          • Thanks Chris…good thoughts.

  • Grunt GI

    Somehow, I think Zed’s injuries might get worse.
    And Skye looks way too amused.
    Sam looks really unhappy…hope that emergency room is well stocked.

  • Ed

    The “film at 11” oughta be a hoot.

  • Okay, all y’all that took my injury/drug induced dream sequence bet can just send my winnin’s straight to C. Muir, FL; he did all the heavy lifting in this superb, scary, salacious series. Bravo, bro!

    Now about that ol’ Ford…

    • Sorry Chris, that was an unthinking inclusion. Thanks for fixing it. 🙂

  • WayneM

    I can’t imagine any man who was partnered with Sam to have a hankering for Skye. If I was accustomed to kobe filet mignon, a Big Mac doesn’t sound appealing… even if it had extra special sauce…

    • interventor

      Unconcious mind does many things we wouldn’t, especially on drugs.

    • It wasn’t a dream or a fantasy. It was a drug-induced nightmare!

  • eon

    Has Skye been sampling the Demerol too?

    Well done, CM.



  • Kafiroon

    Well, after all the morphine and other good happy drugs in hospital stays, I never did get any sexy dreams. Dang.

  • Gina

    Ruh roh…bad things happen when redheads get pissed off.

  • interventor

    Sam will wait until Zed heals before hurting him.

  • Yasss….. Meanwhile, back at the Ranch? Wade’s not on drugs…..

  • Pamela

    There are 3 things you cannot or should not do
    1. Can’t compress a liquid easily
    2. Can’t push on a rope
    3. Should not piss off a real redhead

    They should have been using great tequila or bourbon as an anodyne instead of that other crap on Zed. Morphine sucks rocks and Demerol is marginal.

    • Pat

      I’ve read every strip of DBD since the first one. Sam was NOT a redhead back then.

      • Chris Muir

        she was,but I didn’t draw her very well then;it was only her highlights that were red.:)

        • JIMV

          Well both your writing and art have grown with the script. Well done

    • interventor

      Morphine did great for me in Nam.

      • Pamela

        Morphine sucks because I’m allergic to it and did nothing to ease the pain. Same with Vicodin.

  • DagdaS

    Thank the Gods, it was just the Drugs. Demerol is some Heavy stuff. He’s probably used to the Morphine from his combat time.

  • Spin Drift

    I’ve gone through three bouts of kidney stones, believe me that Demerol is your friend until surgery to retrieve said bolder. Alright to the important question, where’s the truck?

    Molon Labe

    • pyrodice

      Lucky you. It barely cut the pain for me. damn opiate insensitivity…

  • Jim

    Dialysis -you may still be passing the kidney stone but you reeaaally don’t care

  • Stormhawk

    Zed, you gots some splaning to do.

  • epador

    Demerol. Ahh, gives me flashbacks of the good ol days when I could do a bone marrow with valium and demerol as an OP without all the anesthesia paraphernalia and the patients would ask when will you start after I was done.

    • Otto Didact

      They used demerol and valium on me when they took my wisdom teeth (USAF hospital). Shot of that stuff and your give-a-shit factor instantly goes totally away. On that stuff they could cut off any part of you and you’d laugh. Hell! you’d hold it up and giggle. Course you’d cry later. But then that’s what I hear a good 1/3rd of m2f trannys do anyhow. Hellova time to develop buyer’s remorse.

  • Rich N

    Yay! I mean obviously we knew Zed wouldn’t betray Sam even under sedation, but yay that the cute blonde doctor finally made a reappearance. It’s been too long.

  • David

    Please Sam, don’t judge him too harshly. Drugs can make you talk out of your head.

  • Ed

    Makes you wonder who was whispering what to him.

    • BlaxPac

      Well, if you ever fall asleep with the TV or Radio on, sometimes your brain will incorperate the input with your dreams.

      Maybe Zed hear Skyes voice while riding the Demerol Express, contributed to the..ummm, Happiness Factor?

      Hope Red is in a forgiving mood….

  • BlaxPac

    Hopefully, Zed will have a nice comfy suite for himself at the Doghouse Inn.

  • jackdeth72


    Memo to Skye:

    Sam’s wrist to elbow cast makes a “Damn Fine Club”…. Just though I’d let you know.

  • So Zed will stay in the hospital longer than initially diagnosed…

  • Good to know this was a bad trip. Yet, truck?

  • Robert Haskin Jr

    With apologies to Steve Canyon

    ‘Zed is dreaming’

    • Chris Muir

      I ‘member that one!

  • Global Village Idiot

    To be fair, I once introduced my wife to a nurse as my mom while on Demerol.

    • David Gonzalez

      GVI: Perhaps your soul-brother buddies were prescient, after all?

  • Bill G

    Well, at least one part of the trouble was a nightmare/drug induced dream. Meanwhile, back at the ranch-house…???

  • Wes

    Some pretty good societal metaphors goin’ on lately.
    (and “This is your Zed; this is your Zed on drugs” does well on its own.)

  • Sam Goody

    Skye in handcuffs… mmmmmmm…

    • Grunt GI

      I think GRAPE said it best yesterday…”Cuff ’em and stuff ’em”

      That might be one of my new favorite phrases.

      Can’t wait to see our trick or treat tomorrow…sigh…12 hours and counting.

      • Old favorite phrase, Grunt…new to you I guess.

        Old cop phrase meaning putting the bracelets on the BG and locking him in the back seat of the patrol unit.

        Today’s paramilitary LEO’s might alter it to “Zap ’em cap ’em”.

        Before I get the boo’s let me clarify by saying there’re still a lot of good “peace officers” out there, which was the mission statement back in the day. But today the system is programmed from the top down for SWAT-type tactics and gear, the young ones are psych-eval’ed for aggression and obedience to orders, and there is a huge and growing disconnect from “protecting and serving” the people to “profiling and harassing the proles”.

        Chris depiction of the HSA thugs is spot-on and applicable to a whole bunch of agencies from the Feds down to Mayberry. Sad, and especially worrisome with the prospect of anti-Constitutionals doubling down under a Hillzabeast regime.

        • “Zap ’em OR cap ’em”…maybe even “Zap ’em AND cap ’em”.

        • Of course with Skye the cuffin’ part might be the same but the stuffin’ part would be something altogether different…yuck.

        • Grunt GI

          Well, ahem, maybe its just me, but I was not thinking about stuffing thugs in the back of cop cars. Guess it’s all about context.

          And of course there was the equally awesome advice to never stick your dick in crazy.

  • Otto Didact

    No man is responsible for what he dreams on legally administered drugs – it’s what he does that matters. Drunk, now, that’s a different matter. In vino veritas.

  • rochester_veteran

    Check out the look on Skye’s face, she looks delighted that she’s in Zed’s drug-induced dream. Sorry, even though she’s a lefty, I wouldn’t consider Skye having her way with Zed a nightmare, she’s hot IMO!

  • John Egbert

    So, does this mean that the”lipstick Lewinski” of the 24th was also part of zed’s drug-induced fantasy, also?

  • Solaratov

    And Skye sure does look like a smug little vixen.


  • interventor

    If Zed goes in and out of consciousness, glimpses the blonde, redhead and brunette, together, his dreams will really be interesting.
