Lorraine to the rescue… or will her nickname come into play?  Only your hair dresser will know for sure.  And she was a hairdresser too!  How handy…

And yes, that’s the Mystery Machine making yet another appearance in the comic.  If you’re going to be doing some snooping around,  you have to do it in the Mystery Machine.  You can catch the other appearances HERE and HERE.  And speaking of the nudist colony storyline… good news for you Members.  On my Christmas break this year, I’m going to do those strips I promised earlier in the year.  2011 has been anything but normal, so I got delayed drawing that extra story for you Members.  So, Merry Christmas and happy nudist colony gig time!  I will re-open Memberships for Christmas time, so if you didn’t join and want to see it, you’ll still have a chance.

I seem to be on the mend.  They finally got blood out of me (took three trips to the docs office to get that done… it’s a long story) and they did an echocardiogram on me.  The results of both have not come back yet… but my dizzy spells seem very much under control and I’m getting some strength back.  Plus, now I’m on a diet to loose a total of 50 pounds.  2 pounds a week.  Easy at first as I’m a bloated pig, but I’ve given up Mountain Dew cold turkey (was not as bad as I thought it would be) and that will be a big help just in of itself.  I really don’t eat all that bad, but watching what you eat is a good thing for anyone, especially us old farts with a history of heart attacks and shit like that in the family.  Man…

I am a fan of noise… good noise.  And the album version of Van Halen’s cover of “Pretty Woman” has an intro called “Intruder” that rarely gets played but gets cranked by me anytime I hear it on the radio.  It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, so turn your speakers down for exactly 1 minute 40 seconds and you’ll skip the “noise”.  If not, enjoy some noise on a Monday morning.  Joy.
