On their way home....

My little lead-in to tomorrow's strip--assuming there's no new-ruin filler inserted in between.

A little bit louder and a little bit worse

Mike changed the lyrics a bit--from "Nellie" to "Elly." Wouldn't you? I gave up figuring out how the interior of the car should be constructed in the last panel, since it was so messed up in my source material.

Yammerson Truth

Oops... Last night, when I scheduled this to post, I changed the date to today, but I forgot to change the time, so it wasn't going to post until tonight.

Also, I goofed, thinking Lynn was about to launch into her "Ted lends his cabin to the Pattersons and John takes them to the wrong one" arc from year two.

Henpecked AND Tedpecked!

Sorry for the delay!

A bit late....

I've got the penciling done, but I am writing this just before turning in for the night (Thursday), I'm not going to get a chance to ink/scan/add lettering in time to post according to my usual schedule. I expect to get it up just a bit late.

The ideal Farley

The inspiration for this came from a quote in the latest FBorFW newsletter--Lynn giving a status update on the much [un]awaited Farley plushie:
The hold up, now is: the plush material we wanted for the body is no longer available and the new fabric, though really nice is fluffier, which changes the shape of Farley's face. The last sample they sent was so close! I took a pair of thinning shears to the cheeks and muzzle and soon, Farley began to emerge. I was quite happy with the results and asked if they could reproduce the look I came up with. They are amazing, so I'm sure we'll have a good likeness with the next sample. This process is time consuming, but it's like doing a portrait in plush...which is quite a challenge! I always learn a lot when I work on a project that's not pen and paper!!
For some reason, Lynn taking the thinning shears to that unsuspecting plush toy gives me the heebies a bit.

Doll nostalgia

I know that Elly looks different in every single panel. I did consider doing something about that, but then I considered my source material!
