    Methinks she needs more than pink shoes to pull off “feminine”.

    Ya think “high-heeled sneakers” might do the trick?

    Either somebody forgot to put the new strip on or the Grey Lake Dam overflowed again and flooded the town so that we can’t see it.

    2 days now with no updates. Has Geech been pulled from Go Comics ?

    The Grey Lake Dam has definitely overflowed and has covered the town in it’s oily water. Must have been from the snow and ice that clogged the dam.

    Jerry Bittle, 53; Created Comic Strip ‘Shirley and Son’
    Obituaries | PASSINGS
    Jerry Bittle, 53, creator of the syndicated comic strips “Shirley and Son” and “Geech,” died Tuesday of a heart attack while on a scuba-diving vacation in Honduras.
    “Shirley and Son,” a thoughtful look at life after divorce, appears in 75 newspapers worldwide, including The Times. “Geech” appears in more than 175 newspapers. Both strips are syndicated by United Media.
    The son of a barber, Bittle was born in Wichita, Kan. After college at Wichita State, he found staff artist and cartooning jobs at newspapers in Wichita and Albuquerque.
    He moved to the Dallas area in 1978 to work as a freelance artist and illustrator. A short time later, he began drawing “Geech,” a humorous look at life in the fictional town of Grimace, Texas. He also is the author of “Geech … The Moosical” with music by Angelo Badalamenti.
    Bittle began drawing “Shirley and Son” in 2000.
    His daily strips will end on May 3 and his Sunday strips on May 25. They will be discontinued at that time.

    You have given us years of pleasure.
    Throughout that time, your comics, we treasure.
    Now, all too soon, we see you leave.
    Stunned, all we now can do is grieve.
    We long to relive the fun.
    From the start, we wish to have the strip rerun.
    .
    Rest in peace, Mr. Bittle.
    Your comics have made us laugh. Thank you.

    Mr. Bittle died on April 9, 2003. We’ve been enjoying Geech ’classics" since then.

    Could we please have a re-run, if that’s the right word, so we can enjoy Mr. Bittle’s work again? After all, Shirley and Son is in constant re-run and enjoyed by so many.

    I have to agree that Geech needs to start running from the start. I thought he had died this past Tuesday.
