  1. JJ: Your last panel comes close. Have never had a kid fall out of a treehouse I’ve built, but that embrace + ironic question is pure Elaine. Lovable, and had a way with words. Thanks.
    Peace,

  2. Jimmy, that was a dirty trick leading me to Arlo and Janis in 2000 in GoComics! Now I have to stream all the “episodes” up to current (or at least until I start remembering them)! I’ll be reading your comics all day and tomorrow, too!

  3. A long-gone half-sister Virginia went by “Ginger.” Too many Virginias in the family. Dad’s younger sister was Virginia; no idea whom she might have been named after, but that was a usual thing, but Dad and his later deceased first wife named their first daughter after her. Among the later nieces & nephews, she was “Aunt Budge.” Then Virginia’s older brother married a Virginia [delightful woman; wrote a column about her]. Then, sister Virginia & husband named a daughter Virginia, when I was 10+. She decided to go by Sue, still does.
    Peace,

    • You must have fondness attached to the name. Though my “real” name is Virginia though I have always gone by Ginger. I cannot tell you the number of times after introducing myself as Ginger, the other replied with either, “I had a dog named Ginger.” or “I had a horse named Ginger.” I suppose I should have considered these people have fondness attached to my name, but I interpreted the name as ordinary. Guess I should elevate my name!

  6. First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!
