    How could Grandma even AFFORD a dentist?

    It must be the free clinic. The Basic chair, The old style spit basin, and the strip of cloth instead of a paper mask!

    Some places (like here) there are free dental clinics for poor children…
    but usually they’re just for emergency care, so no one says “Come back in six months.”


    The give the kids a free toothbrush and a pamphlet about flossing and hope for no more emergencies that might bring them back.

    Shep4U … from yesterday….
    saw your comment about my avatar…..
    and BTW thanks pschearer…


    That’s the first time I’ve ever heard anyone say it’s scary!!

    LOL…. it’s not an R. Crumb; it’s an original Rodd Perry cartoon of ME!


    He was the artist of “Brevity” (“verbals” written by Guy Endore-Kaiser) and very kindly drew me when the strip moved to GoComics in 2011, cos I’d been a faithful fan and commenter for years on Comics.com.


    I sent him a photo, and what you see is the (rather fanciful) result.


    Dan Thompson took over “Brevity” in Jan 2012… and I’ve lost contact with Rodd…. but I still feel privileged, and grateful, to have this avatar…


    “Scary” is literally not part of the picture!

    I thought it was Crumb, too. Always thought it was nice, but it’s really beautiful in the larger format.

    Thanks for the story.

    Susie, I can see the confusion about it being one of Crumb’s gals…..here’s one that is pretty close, but you can see Crumb’s style all over it:

    How great is that Susan. Nice story and nice guy to do that. Your avatar always makes me smile.
    I have wondered what a cartoon ‘me’ would look like. I vision it as something close to Wonder Woman.

    Love it!
    And before now, I thought of R. Crumb also!

    Agnes really doesn’t know when to stop to keep her lies credible.

    Granny lives on the edge. A few years back, she had all the bills paid and dental trouble struck. An impacted wisdom tooth or something. Thus went Christmas.
