    The Orb’s Tommy

    Go to the Mirror, Boy

    Tommy: The snow is over, it’s morning now, Elvis

    You are not very far from home

    We’ll have you there in just a little while

    And you’ll be there, there is no need to roam!

    …….

    Elvis: What’s that poster

    On that big pole?

    It shows Tommy.

    What does that mean?

    They miss Tommy!

    …….

    Tommy: You can see right inside that window

    Puck and Lupin waiting there for you

    Not far away are your Man and Woman

    The door is open, you can go right on through!

    Go to the Big Pink House!

    Go to the Big Pink House!

    …….

    Elvis: Nothing like a day of Siamesing!

    A tiny box and kibble to enjoy!

    (Wait) I can’t rest while Tommy’s out there freezing!

    It’s time for me to be a good boy!

    …….

    Woman: Elvis, I’m not often the one to quibble

    What does that paper you have say? (Reads)

    Man: I’ll get the phone

    Woman: And I will get some kibble

    All: Tommy’s going home on Christmas Day!

    …….

    Tommy: Listening to mew I get the music

    Gazing at mew I get a treat

    Just over there I see my Woman!

    No more empty tummy or cold feet!

    …….

    Elvis: Listen up guys, we have a new friend

    Lupin and Puck, you may have been wrong

    Actually Tommy is a really great guy!

    He’s been our friend all along!

    …….

    What adventures await our Tommy?

    Oooh I wish I knew

    I wish, mew!

    Kibble and a trap are useless. But the voice of his Woman is all that is needed to bring Tommy home.

    This week has been a tribute to Tommy. The Admiral Tommy Whiskerstache passed away last month and Georgia wanted to celebrate him in addition to taking a much needed break while being sick.

    So much in panel 4 without saying a word. Georgia showed an incredible talent for writing characters and plots with this arc. I also find Tommy’s lines in panel 2 quite amusing. I think this is the arc that comes to mind when we think of Tommy, so glad it made it in.

    My wife and I used to take our indoor cats in cages on our bicycles for the occasional field day in a wooded area. We were lucky in that they were satisfied after an hour of frolicking and returned to their cages willingly.

    There are a handful of single panels that I just adore and move me. The last one in this strip is one of those.

    The last panel of this strip is my 2nd favorite panel of all of BCN. #1? The reunion of Tillie and Winnie. That one blurs my screen more than this one, and it warms my heart a bit more. However, they’re both beyond any other strip since Pogo.

    It is the one after this that made me just sob. And the one when Elvis came home and the woman put him in the bedroom to rest telling him he was a good boy. That one was just heart crushing.

    This is the arc that hooked me on the strip. Our paper had just started carrying it and I was thinking, “What the heck is this?” I didn’t really care for it. But then there was this Tommy-Elvis sequence and I was a goner!

    Thankfully I don’t have to see the full arc. Just when I’d be getting over blurry Elvis eyes I’d shot right into blurry Tommy eyes.

    This was on Georgia’s Instagram about Tommy’s Women:

    Many readers have been commenting that they’ve put their Tommybaum out in honor of Tommy this week. I love that idea (thank you ❤️) and put ours out too. ❤️

    Thank you so much for all of the kind words and comments and wishes of comfort for Tommy and his family. Tommy’s Woman has been reading them all, and wrote on his FB page ‘Admiral Thomas “Tommy” Whiskerstache’ today: “…And for everyone that has written kind words in Tommy’s comments, on BCN’s page, and sending messages – please know that I’ve read every single one and while we’re still shattered over the loss of Tommy and his huge personality, I also love knowing how many people also loved that sweet lovable goofus.”
