I've worked for just over 30 years with a Christian drama ministry based out of Oxnard, California. With this company, I have worked in several countries in Europe as well. I love it. In addition to comics, I also like to read cozy mysteries, historical fiction, and other fun stuff.

    Yeah, in some of the comics, they even spell it “Ouais.” And it comes out halfway between “way” and “weh.” My sister, who lived in France for awhile, said there were places where saying Yes sounded like ducks quacking.

    Well, how would he? If he even had high school French, it’s ancient history by now! He wouldn’t recall the rules.

    Yeah, well. Because so many Anglophones are so bad at other languages, the native speakers of those other languages will often request to speak English. And then the Anglophones never learn anything else.

    When I was with a touring theatre company in Sweden, I wanted to practice my Swedish. But most of the younger folks (my age and a bit older) spoke enough English that it was easier for them to speak English with me. I had to go to senior citizens to get someone who’d be patient and let me practice.

    But they’d disagree, most likely, on how to use it.

    Yep! Can you imagine being warned and warned and warned about an upcoming final exam, and then not studying for it (and totally blowing it) because you weren’t truly sure it was going to happen? And yet, many people do exactly that when it comes to their eternal destination.

    And it’s nothing new, either. Remember what Jesus said about Lazarus’ master? He didn’t listen, and landed in eternal torment. He wanted someone to go back to earth and warn his brothers. (story in Luke 16: 19 to end)

    And surfing ones, too!

    Those of us who grew up a long time ago recall doing stuff like that. We had no helmets for rollerskates, bicycles, or skateboards. No padding either. Band-Aid did a booming business for sure, but serious injuries were less common than you’d think.

    Priceless! Thanks for the laugh. Great way to start a day!

    Is this an homage to all the folks who can’t find the glasses they’ve parked on their head?

    Such fun! I noticed the mouse was beautifully drawn and shaded, and then — belatedly — noticed the rest of the strip is, too. I really do love your artwork. The tortoise is great. Ok, the artwork is so good that the first thing you see is the joke of the strip. Then you notice the art. That’s really good!

    Love it! Really great artwork on the bike by the way. It’s mechanically correct, but still fits the style of a cartoon. And I loved the play on words, too.
