I’m sure many here have gotten into the same routine as me, waking up Sunday mornings and cruising over to The Planet to take a stroll through the wonderful collection of political cartoons Sally has put together each week. It is a very special and widely enjoyed feature at PlanetPOV. Unfortunately, I have just found out that Sally is not even partially cyborg and can have some human being things come up from time to time (despite my advice not to).
So, Sally will be taking a brief hiatus from posting The Sunday Funnies and wants to share the following with her loyal readers:
Dear Sunday Funnies fans,
I am going to take a vacation from the Sunday Funnies for a bit. I will be going in for major surgery in September. I begged my surgeon to wait until after the summer because I didn’t want to be down now! He agreed that it could wait until then. Before that happens, Mr. T and I will hopefully be able to get a little camping in with the boys, Mansion and Moondozer. I need to sit in the beautiful woods of Oregon and reflect a little. Before and after the surgery, I may have to cut back some and I hope you all can understand. It can get very uncomfortable to sit in one position for very long right now. The funnies can take over 2 hours a night to do and 4-5 on Saturday night to get ready to publish. Okay, that is enough of Alibi-Ike from me.
The Sunday Funnies mean a lot to me and I enjoy doing them. They are my baby. My way of sharing my opinions here and there. And, I hope smiles and laughter with you. I am so glad that you have enjoyed them, too. I just wanted to let you know that we will be gone for awhile but we will be back. Maybe a little slower at first but we’ll get there. Of course, in the meantime, I will be watching for articles and comments you are posting and maybe comment here and there. And, especially in September while I am down on my back side!
Thank you, AdLib, Kalima, and Kesmarn for all your help. And KT, well, you know without me saying, Buddy. Also, thanks to all of you for making my day so many times these past Sundays with your comments and dedication to the column. I have appreciated it so very much and all of you!
Until then, ENJOY each other,
