Farewell, Foxtrot!

As most of you know, Jeff and I are big comic strip fans. One of our favorites is Foxtrot, by Bill Amend. He's been doing the strip for 19 years now, and Jeff has been reading it for most of those years! We have several books/treasuries and we really enjoy the family dynamics. There's Roger, the bumbling Dad; Andy, the work-at-home Mom; Peter, the 16 year old eating machine; Paige, the 14 year old fashionista; Jason, the 10 year old uber-nerd; and Quincy, Jason's iguana. Now for the sad news -- Bill Amend has decided to expand his universe by scaling back on his comic strip. As of today, he will no longer be inking daily strips, and will only be doing Sundays. So, Amend joins the ranks of such greats as Bill Watterson and Gary Larson, who retired long before we were ready for them to! You can check out Foxtrot at this link, and you can see Bill Amend's website here.
