Happy New Year everybody! Thanks for popping in.

Speaking of popping in, look who’s back… It’s Molly “Mouse” O’Shay! We haven’t seen her for awhile… not since she was in a chain gang… after she and Oslo got in trouble with the law.

I’d also like to thank my belovedĀ  Miriam for being my perpetual sounding board and inspiration. She’s also pitched in an idea or two when I’ve been stuck. She is my own real life “Mouse”.

The strip was partially inspired by an old story a friend of mine told me, where he reached in to his fridge to have something cool and refreshing, and didn’t realize until it was too late that he had taken a nice chug of some borscht.
