Oh, that’s heartbreaking news, Font Lady. Please know that even people you have never met are keeping you in their thoughts and lifting you up in this terrible time.
WOW! I wish I had the skill to do that!
A lot of those vintage vacuums are still going strong, while the new ones are designed to fall apart after a couple of years. In the early 90s I bought a 1950s Kirby that never gave me a minute of trouble, aside from being incredibly heavy…sadly I got rid of it when I moved about ten years later, and bought a new (plastic) one for my new apartment, and then another, and another…all the new ones are broken by hair. Now I have a robot vacuum, but I bet whoever has my old Kirby is still using it!
This was so cleverly done. As a huge fan of the original run of this story, I wondered how Georgia would adapt it to fit the newspaper format, not just editing for length, but also to make the Sunday panels stand alone if people only get the Sunday paper. It must have been very difficult to pull off, and was done beautifully.
Oh, that’s so beautiful! Wow!!
Generally I agree that cats should be kept inside if possible. However, some of us have both indoor cats AND managed feral colonies (feral cats who are fixed, vaccinated (including against rabies), fed on schedule, etc). Such cats vary on the amount of human contact they will tolerate, and for some of them it’s extremely stressful to be brought inside.
The art is always beautiful in this comic, but every now and then it just strikes me HOW beautiful it is. The color, the level of detail, the expressions, all stunning. Look how effectively Georgia manages to convey the flickering light of a television set on The Woman’s face, with subtle highlights and shadows.
I have foil-wrapped, OTA rabbit ears atop my TV. I don’t know whether the foil helps, but I’ve always done it that way. Here in LA I get about 30-40 channels over-the-air, depending on the way the wind is blowing. ;)
These are good choices, but I’m thinking Elayne Boosler must not have discovered Breaking Cat News yet because it is everything.
This is genius.
