Best wishes to ya! Gonna miss the new stuff (sniff).
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!
Lennie, it was wonderful reading your work on dead trees and even more wonderful reading it on live electrons. Thank you for making all of our lives a little happier. Best wishes for even more success.
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…
Love you Lennie! Thanks for all the smiles and chuckles you gave me.
You just do you. That’s crazy enough… and a lot of fun.
Enjoy the rest .You’ll be sorely missed. We’ll welcome you back should you ever want to return to making us chuckle and sometimes laughing out loud.
I do get it
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
Thanks for all the years of sharing your life and good luck for the future, wherever your talent takes you.
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.
You know, a nap does sound kind of nice!
Thanks for the laughs.
Thank you, Lennie. I’m sad that you’re going, but wish you the very best. Love you, Ginger and Homie.
Via con Dios, mi amigo!
Wishing you all the best, I only discovered you a couple of years ago, but I have enjoyed them all, thanks
Really enjoyed your life story! Thank you! Good Luck! Missing you and the gang already! Crying!!
All this time you were famous, and we thought you were just a regular schlub like the rest of us.
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?
Loved all of it. Thanks.
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.
Thank you for this look back, Lennie, truly enjoyable :)
Good luck Cartoon Boy. I’ll miss your strip
Good luck on your future endeavors Lennie! I will miss your musical references and both of the felines!
Thank you for sharing so much of yourself in your strip over these years. I will miss it. All the best to you and yours.
Best of luck.
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
Seems everything I enjoy is fading away. I’m very sad.But sincere best wishes go to you, Lennie. Be healthy and happy.
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!
Just want to wish you good luck. We’re all counting on you.
Sure enjoyed your strip. Cat guy myself. Had many (dogs too). Wish you well. You’ll see Ginger again.
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.
Lennie, I loved this story arc! Thank you for your work.
