Jim and the Colonel


You'll be seeing some Zits reruns in a few weeks which allow Jerry and me a couple of weeks of not-particularly-hard-earned vacation each summer. Jerry generally uses his having various body parts surgically reorganized, but I like to travel. This year my wife and I went with a group from the Cincinnati Zoo to Tanzania to see the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti.

Wildebeest shmildebeest, fast forward to our arrival home after 32 hours of airplanes to a quick nap and a seven-hour drive the next morning to take our youngest child off to college. Highlight of the trip – besides, of course, seeing our son happily ensconced in a nurturing college environment "nurturing college environment" [see wildebeest migration…] was breakfast in Corbin, Kentucky at the original Kentucky Fried Chicken

Yes, this was the spot where Harlan Sanders first set up a small motel and figured he needed to feed the people on their way to the Best Buy down the street. I've always had a soft spot in my otherwise-corroded heart for the Colonel and was pleased to express my devotion in the fabled redneck Mecca.

  1. I will never forget the one you both did where Jeremy and his Dad are passing each other in the bathroom hallway. Jeremy’s pants are way down with his underwear showing and his Dad’s are way up. They each remark on each others style. That strip is several years old, but it hit home. My son Spencer was just getting into the goofy style of his underwear showing and well his Dad had his own kind of style. I had the living people to prove your comic is “spot” on.

    I’d love to purchase this strip in any format a picture, T-shirt or cup. Any chances of doing that.

    From a Mom who thanks you from the bottom of her heart for revealing the humor and capturing the moment of my son’s life.
