Cartoon of the Week: Sooner or Later





In this week’s A Figure from the Common Lot: Peas in a Pod (part four), Richard and Lawrence hear some river rat yarning from Fish, but the elder Everard brother can no longer take things lightly; on Monday, “Are You Adaptable” began, with Beloye’s discontent at a planned Tolhurst outing. Tuesday, Yoharie was back with a new episode, in which Giarma tells Trevor why she left her job. Wednesday, two new old posts, Every Sort of Help: Hammersmith (eleven), and the poem “Opportunity”, from The Poor Belabored Beast.¬†Thursday, La Catastrophe de la Martinique, has Hess giving an anecdote about the American reporters, and one about a French official. On Friday, an Assorted Opinions on the use of punctuation strategically, in the matter of dashes, ellipses, and parentheses. Saturday, another poem, “Giddy”.
Images on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
