Day By Day


  • Guess who’s gonna be the real roadkill here, skidmark?

    Sorry Chris, just couldn’t resist; go ahead and zap this when you zap “it”.

  • H_B

    Oh that poor Charger…

  • Greg B

    Mr. Muir, you flip that Charger and I’m gonna be pissed. πŸ™‚

  • Oh. SHIT! I may but pray all goes well in this scenario. Sam should be able to save the situation.

  • Morris

    Leave us hanging why don’t you, Chris? πŸ˜›

  • Snafu F. Ubar

    Steer around him Sam! Steer around him!

  • Sharp left, hard right, lock brakes, ass end should swing around, pull nose of car off child, stay on the road in one piece. Pointed the other way, but on the road.

      • OpenTheDoor

        Wow, flashback, I was in San Fran early 70’s, my buddy had a 68 Charger R/T,
        440, 4 speed.
        He was from Dallas and he could not get the hang of starting that big iron up a steep hill from a start.
        His ‘rents were rich and they bought it for him as a grad present, he had never owned a stick and lets face it, Dallas is as flat as Julia Roberts.
        I ended up driving whenever we were in the city, never even owned an automatic until ’09, I like to mix my own.
        It was so cool cruising Frisco (they hate it when you call it that) in a R/T.
        Hope Sam doesn’t wreck it.

      • Chris Muir

        She’s a manual.

  • Doc Epador

    Or one wakes up from nightmare only to find you’re still on a mountainside in ‘Stan next to smoking C-130

    • Bill

      Yes. I’m betting this is a dream sequence.

  • Kafiroon

    I hope that 2nd. frame is drawn similar in perspective as a cameras “Zoom” changes perspective.
    Those land barges looked nice but handled worse than Mississippi river tug pushing four barges against a flood current. Prognosis? Not Good.

  • Grape

    Full bore, straight ahead machines. Not kown for changing direction well once in motion.

    • Otto Didact

      My exact response.

  • S'aaruuk

    Looking at the background in both frame 1 and previous strips of this drive, where the hell did the kid come from and why was he not seen a helluva lot sooner?

    • S'aaruuk

      adding to my own comment…..I just checked several strips back and if the background is any indication….they’re out in the middle of nowhere… houses, buildings, parked cars, trees…..nothing.

      Where th’ hell did that kid come from???

      • Dastardly Dan

        My guess is that he came from South of the border, across the Rio Grande, and without official status.

    • Bill

      The same way we didn’t see Obama comin”. It was all there to see and we were distracted by our thoughts.

      • MAJ B Retired

        You got that right, at least for the majority

  • Bill G


  • Pamela

    A little one left alone or are there others left scattered by the coyotes…

  • Cliffhanger!

  • Uffdaphil

    Vatican won’t take in ONE. But Sam and Zed will.

    • Unca Walt

      ‘Smy thought, too.

      Talk about complications!

      Chris… sometimes… πŸ™‚

  • B Woodman

    Tune in tomorrow. . . .

  • Spin Drift

    Why did the soon to be dead baby cross the road? He was stapled to the chicken.

    • You’re a racer, right? I’d have thought you’d say:

      “He was playing chicken.”

      Little double-entendre there.

  • capn

    Gee thanks Chris …. One of my worst nightmares drawn up in color.

    I (we) are relying on your humanity to allow this child to live and that Sam has a spare pair of skivvies in the duffle in the back seat. Zed is probably SOL on the spares. “The girls” were safely belted in …Yes?
    OR better yet they are in the kind care of their “Auntie Jan” so as to not have to experience the gut wrenching vision and the aura of intense fear their parents are currently emitting and experiencing.

    Sometimes you are a devious fellow aren’t you Chris?

    OK The brandy is down and my heart rate has dropped to near normal … now what?

  • HB

    Don’t worry all will be ok for the road wanderer. Be a nice addition to Skye’s family….good excuse for her to cross the boarder south for a little trip.

    But my driving rules are….keep my eyes open while driving….but if something pops up on the road it will be hit if I can’t safely avoid it. Afterwards I’ll surely stop and offer aide and give it a Christian burial if it is on the “road” to the great beyond.

    • Pete in NC

      HB, I thought I had the same driving rules, until 2 years back a selfish individual in a Volvo wagon pulled a genuinely dumb stunt that guaranteed some form of crash. In retrospect I should have simply hit the brakes and crashed straight ahead into him (would have resulted in substantial vehicle damage, but not much PI), but my instinct was to take evasive maneuvers. The Honda Element doesn’t do them well at all; end result was my 6yo car was totaled and the jerk didn’t even stop. The thinking part of the brain doesn’t always get to run the show. πŸ™

  • That title has me puzzled and concerned…

  • anonymitty

    If she’s steering hard right, as shown, the “G” within the car would throw her to the other side. She’s leaning into the turn, bracing against those G forces, but her hair would go with the G-forces. Hair should be streaming to the right of the picture, which is to her own left.

    Please make her miss.
