Peter's Thoughts

It's just like Nixy to follow Timby on some sort of personal errand of a deeply mysterious nature - out of sheer curiosity and probably without discussing it with Timby - only to run into trouble. It should have served as an early warning for him when Timby's every move only further kindled Nixy's curious sense, but we wouldn't want to put an old adage about cats at too great a risk, now would we?

As for why gathering bugs (or whatever about Timby the absence of which in Nixy so set off our cryptic furry friend) qualifies as "protection" from Fifi, we are unsure. It may not be that Fifi is peckish for the gruesome critters; it may be that he wants his precious wooded grounds rid of them. But it also may be an arbitrary measurement for who is & who is not allowed to stay - a measurement that finds its origins in a mind beset with madness.

It may even be that Fifi considers anyone who wears a monk's habit and gathers bugs in the forest unworthy of the trouble to chase them away.

Transcript

"So, uh ... I have to ask:

"... Why are you gathering bugs in the forest?"

"Ssh! It's to appease Fifi."

"Who's Fifi?"

"You didn't come to Fifi's woods without protection, ... did you?"

"Well, I-"

"Ssh! Here he comes now!"

"Yip yip!" BANG!

"AAAAAAAAAAA"

BANG!

I want one of them thar guns... XD

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

What I want to know is how

What I want to know is how Timby got involved with this Fifi. He doesn't seem too put out by Fifi's behavior.

Run, Nixy, run! Typical dog and a cat pursuit but the dog has UPGRADED!

Everything looks perfect from far away.

I wasn't intending a resemblance to be present there, but hey - I don't mind it! :P

lol. I actually was thinking the same thing.

That darned dog next door

Fifi's jealous protection of "his" woods reminds me a of a neighbor dog with which (whom?) we had several confrontations during recent filming endeavors. A gun like that, in the hands of the Mad Hatter, would have come in very handy, I assure you.

Perhaps Fifi is so short tempered because of the obvious abuse he must suffer at the hands of his master, who seems to be confused about appropriate hair accessories and names for male vs. female dogs. Or perhaps, like our neighbor dog, Fifi is just a cussed creature with no redeeming value.

How does Timby make his word balloons transparent like that? I'd love to hear what that sounds like.

Did you guys watch too much Twilight Zone when you were younger? Or read too many vintage Marvel comic books? This has a distinctly Rod Serling/Stan Lee type sound to it. I love it!

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Why, thank you very much! :D

It is meant to imply that Timby is whispering. I suppose that it did not accomplish this if I had to say it, but it was not a crucial aspect of the comic...

I understood that he was whispering.

Thanks!

I'm glad it did some good - it was supposed to be subtle anyway. :-J

Classic word balloons

In my youth, whispers were denoted by a dotted outline word balloon. I checked and found that this is still used. See here:

I'm actually a little disappointed, because I was hoping that the transparentish word balloon denoted some sort of ethereal, hollow, other-worldly sound. A plain old whisper seems so boring now.

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Hey, thanks!

That's a really useful tip. :-J

That works too. :P (I'll try to be a little more deliberate in the future.)
