Sea Fever

June 12, 2006

This from 2006, 15 years ago this week. This is the first in a little series about Arlo’s well-established fascination with sailing. Remember, click on the link (the date above) if you’d like to see the entire series. I know what many of you are going to say. Or would say if the “comments” were working, which they still are not. You’d say, Well, didn’t Arlo get a boat? What happened to it? I’m not sure what has happened to the boat, but letting Gus bequeath it to Arlo was the worst mistake I ever made in the strip. A dream, a yearning, in an individual is universally relatable. Boats are not. It would change everything to have Arlo go from wanting a sailboat to sanding rub rails. Oh, sure. Boat people would love it, but, believe it or not, we are vastly outnumbered. Maybe I’m wrong. Comments will be back as soon as I can get them back. I apologize.
