Back To the Future





From the confines of my crystal ball (aka my office), I can see into Spot's future for a good three weeks...four, if I'm ahead of my deadline.

In the coming weeks:

Spot is once again saved by origami; Karl explains why he likes baseball; and Bob and Ray (the birds who convinced Spot and Buddy to leap from a birdfeeder last Winter) return to lay claim to some waterfront property.

And speaking of Bob and Ray, I gave them those names because they seemed to fit their personalities as a comic team, ala Bob and Ray.

Weeks later, I remembered that Bob the Turtle was already using half of those names.

Which is why Bob and Ray the birds are anonymous when they reappear. I haven't decided who Bob should be: a bird or a turtle or a verb.
