Over the years, I’ve done a number of A&J comics that don’t involve Arlo or Janis or anyone connected to them. The above is an example from 2009. I enjoy these strips; they’re like a little vacation from the routine. This particular one is appropriate today, don’t you think? Actually, my earlilest daffodils started showing up about a month ago. They’re always the first flower to bloom this time of year, but you can’t read too much into that. There may be no snow here, but March is going out like a grumpy old billy goat. Anway, it’s official. Spring is here.
