Overboard is my favourite comic strip. I love all the characters. I never get tired of any of them. The captain and his crew, Louie, Raymond, Jonas and his mousy friends--even those pesky rabbits--they rule! :)

    It’s not a sin to be tempted but to follow through is. Scratch gets it! :-)

    Louie can be so naive but blissfully so. :-)

    Poor Scratch. I’d hate to see him made into guitar strings! LOL :-)

    We have two rescue cats. One of them is a Bombay. His name is Oscar. He looks like a mini panther. He had been a stray on the streets for two years but probably more according to the shelter where we got him. He picked me rather than me pick him. He loves to cuddle in my arms like an infant, he loves his head rubbed, and petted in general. He really likes his back massaged and enjoys being brushed. But he loves physical affection on his terms. If I try to do more than he wants he gets really cranky and can nip me. His fangs are so sharp and long. He had been abused and abandoned in the past. It took a while for him to realize that my wife and I love him and that our home is his forever home. It is a sad thing to see a cat crave physical affection yet be afraid to accept it because of trust issues and past abuse. But he has come a long way. My wife says that he is “Daddy’s boy” and he does prefer me over my wife. Our other cat is “Mommy’s girl” and acts like it. One thing that drive me nuts is that Oscar has an annoying habit of nibbling me. People tell me that it is a sign of affection. Maybe so but gee, I wish he’d find another way! :-)

    The world would be a better place if people mirrored the virtues of the characters in this strip such as showing compassion, forbearance, kindness, etc. If the butterfly, Jonas and Louie were people I can easily hear an onlooker telling the butterfly to take a hike. But Chip has Louie being patient and kind to the butterfly knowing that Louie and Jonas know full well where the dog park is. Louie allows the butterfly to feel validated, useful, that he/she matters. I am still impressed with the life lessons and values taught to us through the characters in Overboard. I do read other comics but this one is the only one I acknowledge in my profile. I will always be a fan of this strip who sincerely appreciates the clean humor. I adore the characters. I also appreciate it’s creator Chip. This delightful strip makes me smile, laugh and for a moment forget the negative things in this life that can sometimes so easily weigh us all down. THANK YOU CHIP FOR OVERBOARD! :-)
