534 – Voerhal

I’m back.

This past month has been the hardest I’ve ever gone through and I couldn’t have made it through without the support of my family, friends and my readers. From prayers and/or positive thoughts to the actual monetary donations to help pay for my father’s service, I am truly humbled by the love and support you all have shown me. Thank you.

My dad never quite understood what MeatShield was all about, but he was very supportive of my work. He did always wonder why my strip wasn’t in the newspapers, even after I would tell him about the slow, steady demise of the newspaper industry and the syndicates that service it. He was very proud when I showed him my first book, and I think he began to feel that I might actually make a go of this whole cartooning thing when I printed my second book. I get a lot of my sense of humor from my dad, so you all have him partly to blame.:)

The best thing I can do to make him proud is to get back in the hotseat and make people laugh. So that’s what I’m going to do.

Take care (and call your folks if you can),
