This cartoon’s probably still on the floor somewhere.


Well, no wonder it looks familiar! I don’t know whether to be relieved or worried. This cartoon was repeated last month, on July 3. It’s been an unbelievably hectic summer! That’s my excuse. Thanks for all those who wrote to remind me, gently and not-so. — JJ

Here’s another one from last summer. It’s a little disconcerting, looking at work a year later. I would swear I drew this cartoon about two months ago! I’m betting not a few of you, too, are looking at this one and thinking, “That┬ájust ran in newspapers.” Apparently, at our age, an actual year equals the perception of two months. Or do I have that backward?
