Partly because the time I’d normally spend on working on comic this week is going to be eaten up by American Independence Day. Which is, for my family, a major family gathering kind of holiday; and for the tiny mountain town that I live in, a major week-long festival kind of holiday.

And partly because of technical difficulties – this week, the computer that I use for drawing the comic on has been having startup issues that began last night, that I’m trying to diagnose and repair. If I can’t fix it soon, I’ll need to figure out another way to continue the comic.
