    Too Tall

    And, Zed – You’re sorta oblivious.

    Said by every woman to her husband at some point.

    Does this mean we will get to see Mia and Naomi on the 1000 meter line, side-by-side, in the prone position, shooting left-handed (matching black bikini bottoms, optional) with Sam as a topless spotter?

      The peanut gallery behind the observation line would be huge.

        Definitely one to watch on Pay-Per-View!

        Parts of them, for sure…..

        Thank you for the laugh eve with sore sides.

      That’s visually appealing. But given flying burning-hot brass while holding loaded firearms, the range is a dangerous place for bare skin.

        Consider black powder

        I once got showered with hot brass by an idiot who sudenly and without warning, decided to rapid fire 30 rounds from an AR-15 right next to me on the firing line of a 25 yd outdoor range. Oh yeah… It smarted! “Oh wow! Sorry…” was all the joker had to say for himself so I shot him in both hips with a Colt Python. He’s still in a wheelchair…

        Seen the hot brass war dance more than once 🙂
        The most memorable was a well endowed young woman on the firing line when I was in the military, she took a 7.62 casing down the front of her combat shirt and ended up with everything pulled up around her neck when it went under her issue OD V-neck T-shirt and lodged firmly in her bra. She just laughed and said “you all wondered anyway”, girls like that with a sense of humour are hard to come by nowadays.
        Seen a few others fishing .22 or other casings out, one indoor range had dividers between the firing points and .22’s from the club Rugers in particular bounced off those almost like they had a built in cleavage seeker.
        Took one down my collar myself when I wore one of our short sleeved team shirts on the line, crew neck T-shirts after that.

        I still have the a scar from the .45 round that got caught.
        Kisses couldn’t even make it better.

    Nope. I didn’t see that coming.

    Souvenirs from the war zone. Lovely.

    Raised as a blond Israeli Arab. This should be fun. Good that Sam is shock resistant.

    Too Tall

    Sam is now the only woman who has ever intimidated Naomi.

  • February 10, 2023 at 7:48 am

    How did that happen? I’ve obviously missed stuff.

    Where have I been? I haven’t looked at the “about” page for a while — there are more characters with a motive and unsuspected background than a Poirot Mystery there and I needed to take a quick glance to check up on a detail, and voila!, I discover that there is a “new” about page. Or is it not new, and has been there a while and I just haven’t looked in longer than it seems?

    My (late) wife and I watched a lot of mystery series, and we had composed a list of things that seemingly ALWAYS occur in a mystery series. For instance, if it is a British movie or series, there WILL be an episode or scene that involves a bog (which, in England and its apparent mystery series geography, is something that there is always at least one of within a dayhike’s distance or closer from the local place where the murder has been discovered).

    And that bog is the location of the big reveal scene, where either the detective will begin to sink into and be rescued at the last second as his/her head has just sunk below the surface of the gunk by a cohort’s arm thrust into the mire to pull the detective out. OR — and more likely — the finally-discovered-and-revealed motive, means, and opportunity murderer falls into and meets his just desserts.

    Ok, where was I? Oh yeah — in any case, another trope on our list was what we called “The Reluctant Witness,” where three-quarters of the way through a show or episode, the detective will re-interview a witness or suspect who will say something like “Well, I was married to the victim, you know,” and the detective will exclaim, “Why didn’t you tell me this when I first questioned you?!!” and the person will answer, “Um, because I didn’t think it was important — that was twenty years ago.” And of course THAT will be the crucial clue that helps solve the case.

    And it is that particular “rule of dumb” for murder mysteries that crossed my mind as I looked at the About page to recall who did what with whom and other ass-sordid details.

    So now I’m suddenly thinking there needs be another list of “DBD Rules,” sorta like my wife’s and my “Murder Mystery Rules” that we readers can refer to in trying to anticipate future developments from the current week’s setting and dialogue. Unfortunately, I’m guessing that rule NUMBER ONE on the list will be akin to — but slightly different from — the classic Sherlock Holmes/Mr. Spock rule, “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be, well, not the truth, but rather proof that it is impossible to cover all the unexpected revelations of relationships and events that Chris Muir has up his sleeve to reveal to his chomping-at-the-bit audience that will exclaim in unison, “Huh, never saw that one coming…”

    And now I’m also suddenly thinking that the corresponding rule to the English bog rule is something like the Summer Swimmin’ Hole Rule where perhaps a murderer’s identity won’t necessarily be revealed, but where, um, other things might be revealed, don’t ya know…

    And as a side-note, I think that About page would make a great poster — such a great variety of characters and settings and looks and all. Love it!

      Best comment EVAH!

    Wow Stanley, thanks for waking up and waking me up too…there IS a new and improved ABOUT page. And what beautiful history and descriptions some creative someone has provided for them…new pics too, man is there any situation or pose where that sweet petite twin doesn’t just smolder with a cold fire? BUT…even the update could use a new update; I mean Zed’s “new baby son” looks like he’s knocking on the door of his teen years, and as Stanley intimated, Naomi is about to have her “intimidator” role reversed with Sam!

    Tell you what though; beyond the creative backstory and beautiful way of telling it, the art provided just in this throwaway about page, exceeds what is produced by virtually all of comicdom, including all the CGI crap that is being foisted out now in lieu of actual artistry such as seen right here.

      U-MTDJTC — Truth! (ie, about the art in the last paragraph). The Bots at the bottom are the highest level of GI (C or otherwise) any comic thingy needs to be to convey whatever techie stuff needs conveying, and the aesthetic “flow” of all the characters above the Bots are more human in that flow and non-CGI effort than ANY (including supposedly “live action” quality CGI or photo-realistic) characters.

      Heck a single curved eyelid line with a judiciously placed dot for the pupil on Mari’s side-glance eyes smolder hotter than a furnace that could melt hardened steel (though in this case it might work in the other direction for certain anatomical parts). Can any one name one current actress who can smolder that hot with a mere glance? Only in this sort of comic mode, I say… 🙂

    Geez, how did I miss “Naomi…the only woman that ever intimidated Sam”….naming her new daughter…Sam,.

    I had never visited the “About” family tree before. What about the “smiling ones” who work the DD perimeter. Minor characters and a bit “problematic”, but still interesting. Actually, I am more taken by “R200”. He can pass in a crowd, but was always alert and attentive, in the background. It is tricky to present a pleasant demeanor while “growling” Kind of like a “Burke” pulling water skiers, you always know there is something dark behind the bunting and party lights. “R200” does it well.

    No. This is not a duplicate.

    Lotsa beauty in the new ‘About’… I’m still stuck on ‘Jo’… I’d find a way : )
