    Lynn’s Notes:

    When Annie had her baby, I wanted to acknowledge those who are born with a difference. I knew this might be a controversial topic and I didn’t want to focus on something which was not an integral part of the strip, so I chose a condition known as “polydactyly,” meaning “many fingers.” It’s not uncommon and can be corrected, often very easily, with surgery.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    We live in a city that loves fireworks. We also live on a hillside above that city so we go across the street to the park, and watch 20 different fireworks displays all across the valley at the same time. This year, I plan to take a chair….

    Today being the federal holiday, Mike is coming to celebrate with us. He has a date with friends for tomorrow. His birthday is on the 13th, so I think I will make him a cake today.

    Phantom Kit was “promoted” to being the Phantom years before he married Diana. He was called home from college when Cobra killed his father. (Comics Kingdom has a “classic” version of Phantom that was originally published in the 40’s. A couple of years ago, they printed a fairly extensive backstory about Kit’s childhood and youth, where he met Diana, etc.)

    Why should anyone have to accommodate someone making a turn in their driveway just because they chose to live at the end of a dead-end road? Most roads have plenty of room on the street to do a “Y” turn. When I was learning to drive, one of the first lessons we learned was to stay off of private property and out of folks’ driveways. At the very least, you are trespassing.

    I picked up a bumper sticker at the county fair last Spring:
    Eat Beef
    Because the West wasn’t won on salad

    I’ve BEEN to the Heart Attack Grill. Great food, actually. The one here in Vegas has had at least two people taken away by ambulance in the 4 years I have been living here.

    Lynn’s Notes:

    As a medical artist, I once had the privilege of working on a long and demanding project which tracked the development of the foetus. I worked with tiny, unborn bodies. I drew detailed illustrations showing how internal organs grew, expanded, displaced other organs, and eventually packed themselves neatly into the body and began to function. I learned minute details about the bowel, the heart, and the brain. I learned that each organ depended on the others to turn, close, twist, secrete or open at an exact time in an exact order, and if anything failed to do what it was supposed to do at the right time, then there might be a serious problem. Years later, when I gave birth to my first child, I couldn’t believe how perfect he was. When you think about the infinite complexity of creation, it’s a miracle that any of us comes through the process as “normal!”

    I would think this would have been as obvious to you as it was to the rest of us. So Lonely was replying to Elly’s comment in the strip that it is a miracle that anyone is born “normal”.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Happy pre-independence day. This is the day that the Declaration was actually signed. It was read aloud to the public two days later. The founding fathers believed at first that the 2nd of July would be celebrated as Independence Day.

    Bing’s forecast for today is only 99! But, being Bing add about 4 or 5 degrees. We can hope anyway.

    Phantom Florchi, I doubt that the bad-guy arc will ever be mentioned again.
    Classic Phantom The 1948 Phantom strip (at CK) storyline ended yesterday and won’t start a new one until Monday. So we get a few days of the Phantom’s origin recap.
