This is weird! I was 100% positive I posted this post late last night, but apparently (and I'm not kidding) I fell asleep here at the computer and dreamed that I posted it. I was surprised as heck to look in right now and not see it. My sleepiest apologies for those looking for it earlier in the day!
Things have been exceedingly busy around here, hence my absence, but I've finally had a chance to look through my Pogo archives to discover a stash within the stash of Sundays that apparently haven't been posted yet.
I double checked against a list that our friend Hun has compiled of Whirled of Kelly published posts, so it looks like this post and some of the posts to come will fill in some gaps in the chronological continuity.
I actually thought I had already posted these, but I think it's because many of Kelly's "talking heads" strips are so similar to each other, distinguished mostly by different dialogue.
Didja miss me? Or rather, didja miss Pogo Sundays?
Now, life has been werra werra busy 'round here as of late, which is why I'm late to my "self-imposed deadline" (as Hun phrased it). This strip is the last of its arc, with the following weeks already posted long ago. Golly, I'm running low on my long runs of Sundays. Now, what ever will we do when I deplete the stash?
Now again, sorry I'm late. But I received a very nice email today that I quote here: "You may be a day late now and then, or two or more, but remember you are so good and generous to our little band!—Martin Fass"
Now, that's really nice to think of us as a little band. Thanks Martin, and thank you to the band for playing your parts!
Now, check out that last panel with the old greybeard founder—an unusual reference to Kelly's old employer! And a regular mouse that shows up out of nowhere.

People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
