The final week on the road was so busy, I had to split it into two strips. That plus being a week behind, means 3 strips get posted today. Oy! This is strip #1 of today’s strips.

(Although my 20 year old Camry is). 🙂 Night-Gaunt49 June 9, 2018 at 12:19 am 5 years ago Desert rats making fortresses out of cholla cactus?!? Amazing. I pictured what some writers had mentioned as a possible story turn. (Rats developing greater intelligence and attacking humanity.) Both Lovecraft and Wyndham mention it but never really developed the concept beyond talking a little about it. I would picture them building fortresses etc. Interesting that some rats can do that for real.

Kat June 10, 2018 at 2:13 pm 5 years ago This post made me so happy! I haven’t been to most of the places you’ve visited in your travels, but I have been EVERYWHERE featured in today’s strip (well, except the pizza place), and it brought back such fond memories. Thank you! Twenty years ago I was lucky enough to see the sun rise over the dunes in Death Valley several days in a row. It was literally breathtaking. It stopped me in my tracks every single time; every new day I was still just as overwhelmed by the red-gold light suffusing everything and the sinuous shadows winding off to the horizon. It remains one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
