    So does this mean no new strips at all, or just maybe occasional ones? You life has never lacked for material. Homeslice surely provides ample experiences. We will take them when we can get them.

    “… cause it was fun and I had the time.” Hope springs eternal that you will find the time to have fun here again. Otherwise I will enjoy your two Instagram accounts, hope to see you play trombone someday. Oh, and wait the return of my self-addressed envelope… ( when you are not to busy. :-). Lennie is has been a pleasure.

    Better to leave on your terms rather than someone else’s terms.

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!

    All of the above and more so. Wish I could have met you in person, but your strip had to suffice. Good luch, enjoy yourself, continue to grow. Namaste

    Lennie, we will miss you more than you know, but we understand how busy life can be and sometimes, something’s gotta give. Hopefully gocomics will keep the reruns coming. And if you ever want to surprise us with a new one, well, we’ll be here! Maybe someone should start a Friends of The Big Picture FB page…

    There are times I dont think I can handle one more thing to do, and I end up doing more anyway

    There is a limit

    Very interesting, and touching. The role of the cat(s) makes a big difference for me. And the wonderfully gentle humor is soothing.

    SJ. Perelman seemed to think that all humor is basically mean, but I doubt it. A lot of it is (and highly enjoyable, don’t get me wrong—Perelman was a deity of mine) but it doesn’t have to be. I used to enjoy the strip “Pickles”, but after a while I noticed that an awful lot of its “humor” was unkind to the people involved.

    Here’s hoping there’s a repeat of 2015 – and not quite so long a time. I think it was just before 2015 that I started reading; I remember the restart when it happened. It was so much fun I went back and reread the whole series. Please keep the strip, and us, in mind!

    Naps are always good. Still sad you are leaving, but glad it is on your own terms. Anxiously awaiting the special something you have worked out with the site. Any guesses yet? I’m thinking either the continuation of birthdays, or a cat-moderator to introduce the cartoons in some fashion?

    We enter this life not knowing what to do.We wonder if we can accomplish anything new.Then someone special enters our life.We then can fight all of the strife.That someone then is gone.We realize that we must go on.The memories will always be there.And everyone know how much we care.With everything you did or will do,All we can say is, Lennie, Thank You.

    I was getting sad, but then one of the cats launched off my arm and now I’m bleeding. Not much of a send-off, but probably appropriate… Gonna miss you and your little family. Best of luck, and feel free to come back any time. <3

    Thank you, Lennie, (and Ginger and Homeslice), for brightening my 5am mornings. You will be sorely missed. I wish I had discovered you a long time ago. If you find your life has “time” again, please return!

    I hope GoComics leaves these strips online. Since I missed the first many years of the strip I am going to read the strips from the beginning. The tough part will be limiting myself to one or two strips a day and not binge reading.

    Thank you Lenny for creating new strips for so long. We will miss you, Ginger, and Homeslice.
