    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Hope that you are starting the reruns from the beginning as it was only last year, I that I found The Big Picture. Love it when you comment on a reader’s comment.

    Looks like Bret Favre during his rookie season on the Falcons. He was famous for retiring and then unretiring. And other things. Please be careful what you photograph and who you send those photos to.

    Best news I’ve had in a looong time. Going back on the “back key,” the strip starts in August 1999. Can’t wait to see when the reruns start. Don’t want to miss any!! My Dad was an electrical contractor, but in his heart, he was a musician. Played alto sax and clarinet. Played in a band weekends for many years. He was always so happy on weekends. I was born at home, and he and some fellow players played outside the house when I was born. Forgive me, but I hadn’t recalled that story until just now. I miss him. Thank you, Lennie. Best to you always. Marlene

    Homeslice did that just to irritate you. Homeslice will also be upset for having to wait 20 years before showing up. Too bad.

    OH, that’s GREAT! Looking forward to the reruns since I came late to this party. They will all be new to me. And nice that you will still have an occasional foot in the water. I think we ALL really enjoy that you interact with your readers. It has become somewhat of a Big Picture Club! And best of luck to you in this new chapter of your life!

    I’m very much relieved that I’ll keep seeing “The Big Picture”. I have your book and have gone back and reread it over the past years while you were gone. I look forward to seeing them in my daily comics again. :)

    Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! I discovered “The Big Picture” one day when, for some reason, GoComics changed my listed favorites to everything. So I decided to read all of them and if I didn’t like one, I’d drop it. The first one of yours I saw was one where Ginger changed to human and I was intrigued. I haven’t missed one since.

    That’s awesome Lennie. Thanks for giving us some lemonade with the lemons. If I were Stephen Pastis I would have said “Len”onade. At the risk of the rat walloping me.

    Best news I’ve had all morning………of course I’ve only been up for an hour and have been watching the news on TV.

    Anyways, very happy to hear this and will look forward to your visits. It’s been fun following you and your family and your cats. One of my all-time favorite comics ~ if not my favorite!

    Best of luck to you. I hope your future is everything you want and more.

    I don’t comment much, but I just had to comment today to say thank you. It took me a while to believe The Big Picture was actually ending. At first, I had hoped it was a joke, like the pregnancy series, though it soon became apparent you were serious. Am so glad to hear Big Picture will be rerun and even have some new ones. Hoping to see more Homeslice — the little fella has become quite the character in the past year. Thank you again Lennie, for the laughs and insights.

    Yess! Given ‘no more daily originals’ (repeated or not), this is the best option I could hope for. Maybe toss in a few “as heard by”, “stoopid news”, “Homeslice words of advice”, and other past features?

    And for the low low price of $399.95 Lennie will make a personal appearance at birthday parties, bar mitzvas, or any celebration with free food and drink. New England area only. Transportation extra. Trombone solo, art work, and interesting commentary extra. Homeslice appearance MUCH extra.

    Lennie, I only started following “The Big Picture” within the past few months on the basis of GoComics describing it as a “You Might Also Like” strip. They were right…I do like it! Since I’ve only recently become a reader, the reruns will fall under the “If you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you” category, and I must say I’m looking forward to it! The best of luck to you, your girlfriend and Homeslice in whatever the future holds for you!
