ladies, gents, cats and kittens. i am in the (seemingy never-ending) midst of grad school finals, graduating students’ thesis shows, and a worrying little amount of sleep. i am exhausted. there are 50-50 odds that i will faceplant into the keyboard before the end of this very short blog post.

but i cannot let this slide by without even a hasty, inadequate drawing.

because PAPA GRANDE is back. he is back and he got the save. he is back, he got the save, and tonight he was sporting a TWO-TONE SPLIT GOATEE. this facial hair confection was black on one side and bleach blonde on the other, split evenly right down the middle, as in the cartoon.

i invite you to think long and hard on this new development, because there was only a tiny bit of my mind left to take in the world right now, and this may have snapped it off.

  1. No, no. The snapping of anything is only the hurried up march toward the World Series. Listen, your years in Ann Arbor should have taught you just how hard the sprint to success may only be a 6-4-3 double play. Deep breath, then remember just how lucky you are, my dear. Two, no, three of the best towns in the world know just how valuable you are. Keep us in mind.

  2. This is not an inadequate drawing. It brings me pure, unalloyed joy, which will no doubt be followed by the terror induced by a typical Papa Grande save opportunity.

  3. My favorite bit was how the mothership caption said “Valverde will add much needed stability to the Tigers’ lineup” below a picture of him screaming like a crazed banshee.

  4. Good luck with your studies…good cartoon and narrative. Cheers

  6. Can’t wait to see you back! Good luck with everything!

  7. Thanks for the interesting things you have unveiled in your text.

    One thing I would like to comment on is that FSBO interactions
    are built after some time. By releasing yourself to the owners the first saturday their FSBO is definitely announced,
    ahead of masses start off calling on Friday,
    you generate a good association. By mailing them instruments,
    educational products, free records, and forms, you become a great ally.
    Through a personal interest in them and their circumstances, you create
    a solid interconnection that, many times, pays off once the owners
    decide to go with a realtor they know and also trust — preferably you actually.

  8. excellent post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector don’t notice this.
    You should continue your writing. I am confident, you have a great
    readers’ base already!
