    Glad you didn’t jump, and I hope you found the right job elsewhere.

    If I ever used an elevator with music, I don’t remember it. Or perhaps I did recently, without knowing it (one of the benefits of hearing loss ).

    A click-to-enlarge version, of this cropped image, can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry (yesterday). A full, maybe-click-to-enlarge image can be found here.

    Hamlet and the Gravediggers (link shows his Wikipedia page) is shown, with a different coloration image, and described, by its current-location page.

    Its click-to-enlarge image is provided by its 2013 purchase page. Another different coloration, enlarged image can be found here.

    A page, in an online 2002 book preview, as part of its description, says Gustave Courtois and Karl von Stetten posed for the principal characters. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Bing translated French Wikipedia page has more) and collection.

    Third, of the 3 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here (3 total).

    At least one (plus maybe the one hidden by the word balloon) exhibit table has no student. Maybe Willard is only using it to get rid of the competition. Since each full ash pile has glasses in the remains, maybe she’s in no danger (no glasses).

    Not $16,000/year. $16,000 total. I graduated in 1968, the year before this strip. I had paid the dorm bill by working in the kitchen all 4 years, and only needed to borrow $500 per year for tuition and books.

    In July, 2006, on the way to Glacier Park’s Iceberg Lake, we encountered a group of hikers coming the other way who said a grizzly sow and her cub were on the trail ahead. So, we all got off the trail. First the cub came racing by, then the sow, much slower.

    We got her to change course, and after that was over, the “lead” hiker in the other group (at least he pretended to be the leader), for some reason started fooling with his pepper spray. All of a sudden his wife let out a scream. He had sprayed it directly in her eyes. I never carried the stuff; figured it would just make the bear mad if I used it.

    My companion and I decided to go to Ptarmigan Lake instead (weren’t sure where the sow or cub had gone, the encounter was where to two trails diverge).

    Did you mean black instead of brown? The grizzly is a brown bear subspecies. While an American black bear is more apt to climb a tree after you, grizzlies can also climb after you.

    So, is Bark Kent still so overheated, by the exertion of flinging Bassetzilla into outer space, that his glasses are fogged up in the last animation panel? If so, he needs more time in the gym.

    Or is it because he’s so hot for Lois (Lane?)? Is that it?

    About this time in 2011, the following Washington Post article ran.
