Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a good transition into 2018! I slept through midnight and all the fireworks, like the last few years. But I have the feeling that maybe next year, or in a couple of years, the kids will be old enough and my wife and I’s accumulated sleep deprivation will be dissipated enough for us to stay up again and welcome the new year with champagne and watching the fireworks from our garden, like in the olden days.

Anyway, here’s our new strip! Those of you who know us, will be aware that we’re big Calvin and Hobbes fans. Unfortunately, there’s no snow here yet. And even if it snows, we never get more than a couple of feet. But it’s on my bucket list to, one day, build a Snowman House of Horror just like Calvin, or in this case, Julio.
