Last week while my fellow cartoonists were subbing for me I hoped to catch up on strips and get our fourth book off to the printers. Instead I spent most of the time on my back in a fair amount of pain. Frankly it's getting a little old. Anyway, the book is drifting late and I'm now a day behind on strips. I'm going to drug up a bit and see if I can't catch up some. Ice cream is a drug, right?
