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.

    That’s in the next frame we can’t see.

    Consider the alternative. Iggy needs his shots to prevent some nasty diseases that he could get and give to his friends. If he was simply taken in to get his shots as usual, he would be terrified and biting and barking and all of that. He would seriously upset himself and all the other dogs.

    Shots are necessary, so skipping them isn’t an option. This way, he gets a second or two of startle and discomfort; done the normal way, he would get hours of it. Yeah, sometimes there is no perfectly good choice. This is the best one of all the ones they had.

    Wow. Those are really nice photos — well, ok, except for all the creepy-crawlies, they’re nice. Thanks for sharing them.

    And that’s why there was leftover stuffing for Rover to enjoy!

    Oh, yeah, I love the verb forms. They have different tenses, of course, but the verbs do not conjugate by person. Something like “I is, you is, we all is” but in Swedish that would be correct. (Jag är, du är, alla vi är actually in Swedish. The verb form är — pronounced almost like “air” in English — doesn’t change.)

    Yeah, the “oj då” is current Swedish. I’ve heard they used to use “asch då” and “usch då” (either one of which could have sounded like what you recall) in past times.

    I like to go through the IKEA where my nieces live and translate all the names of stuff for them. It’s all pretty simple Swedish and really does include some pretty funny puns and jokes if you understand the language.

    Yeah, it is difficult for an adult to learn a new language, but as far as languages go, Swedish honestly isn’t that hard.

    Yeah, I tend to think in pictures, so it’s not hard to follow IKEA instructions. It’s actually easier than reading written ones and translating it into pictures in my head so I’ll know what to do. That’s what I often have to do.

    My older sister does not think in pictures, though. She really wanted a classic IKEA-design chair, so she found an IKEA and got one. The instructions were nigh unto impossible for her, though. So, we worked together. I “read” the instructions to her (looked at pictures and translated them to words) and she did them. The instructions were completely accurate and very easy to follow.

    Properly prepped iron is pretty tough. Improperly prepped iron can be very brittle.

    That is actually Norwegian, not Swedish. Oj då (pron “oy doh”) is Swedish.
