    Why did the title change? Political correctness? The “About” section still calls this Dixie Drive…

    @katzenbooks45!

    They’re working on it. No, not PC. The cartoon started in my little NC town where the main strip is Dixie Drive. I initially created the cartoon for my neighbors and it was all about life in my Southern small town. When I got on GoComics, I realized that it was more about small town life everywhere. Having fans from all over the country made it hard to stick to solely Southern jokes (the guys in Minnesota didn’t get the Persimmon Seed jokes!) and I’d hear funny traditions/superstitions etc. from all over. So… I figured I’d have a lot more fun if I could stretch my legs and find humor in different places…including, of course, the South. So the name has changed, my borders have expanded but much will stay the same. There’s a good Southern cartoon appearing shortly and soon after that, something from another planet!

    @Rich; You’d best copy and save your response to katzenbook as I have the feeling that there are plenty MORE katzenbooks out there !!

    Yeah. GoComics will be putting the header and new description up soon. That’ll help.

    Says your comment was 44 minutes ago. And it’s got the new description now.

    And you’ve never said, “Goin’ to see my drug dealer” when leaving to pick up a description?

    @Rich Powell

    judging from the noses and the piquant quality of the banter, these crack tweekers don’t fill many scripts at the corner drugstore…

    The best comedy is about things we’ve all dealt with.

    @Rich Powell

    Thanks so much for the personal response! i didn’t expect that. I understand completely. As a southern Californian transplanted to middle Georgia, I got the jokes, but as someone who also belongs to an international FB chat group, I know the limitations of regional humor. Thanks again!
