I was late yesterday because I was tied up selling my Lincoln to Carmax. I hated to do it. It was my favorite car of all time. I bought it a year and 8 months ago. Top of the line Continental. It had every thing you could imagine – push button button pushers. It did everything but your laundry. But for certain reasons I won’t go into, I decided to sell it. I paid around $27k for it in November 2019. With the tax and fees and warranty, the total was something around $32k. Carmax gave me $29.6k for it.
I missed yesterday, so here are the first two strips in the story. From 1996:
2318 was our house address at the time.
I’m late today. I’ll tell you about it tomorrow. Meanwhile, instead of an Ernie, here’s another blast from the past (Gee, I hope no one is offended):
I drew two endings to the Olympic moose milking story. I was worried that the first version could be taken in the wrong way. Remember the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team? Below is the one that I published.
I’ll also have a video ready tomorrow. I hope.
And I finally got my stinkin’ Linkin out of the shop after a month. The bill was close to $5000. the warranty paid for all but $358. Whew! But they’re not sure it’s fixed.
See the funny mashed potato man that I made at the restaurant last week?

He stopped by on Tuesday and dropped off another bunch of tropical fruit. I’ve mentioned him before. We were friends in Manatee High School many many years ago. He’s a PhD entomologist, but these days he grows tropical plants in Homestead. Those bananas are the best tasting I have ever eaten. The little guys are related to and taste like lychee nuts. There are three different varieties of mangoes. Frau Grace loves mangoes. As I write this she has 19 mangoes in our fridge and freezer. Also the star fruit. Thanks, Bob!
