Sweet Dreams, Old Friend

Reading the comics this morning was bittersweet as I was forced to say goodbye to yet another cherished friend. He had me at "hairy fishnuts" and I spent many wonderful years with him, Bill, Milo, Binkley, Oliver Wendell Jones, Steve, Cutter John, Portnoy, and Hodge-Podge. Oh! And Lola Granola and the Basselope...and so many others. I had wanted to do a more thorough stroll down memory lane, but Berkeley Breathed's website has been down all day (on purpose?) and I wasn't able to find my favorite strips. So for today I'll just do one of the first.......and the last. Goodnight, Opus. I'll miss you...






Goodnight Opus

Hi Mrs. Schmidt!

Ok I think I missed something? What happened to Opus?

In other Steve Schmidt news, I happened upon this blog today and thought you'd like the Limerick a few posts down :)

I am not really that familiar with Bloom County & all things related, but I feel unusually saddened by this. Though the final panel should be comforting.

Maybe it's jet lag.
