Harts Pass No. 358


When we left for vacation the air in the Methow Valley was some of the worst in the state. Its better now, but you know that the smoke is blowing somewhere... Back on track with a new comic for 8.23!

GRRRaaaaaaahhhmaaa! Just in case you can't read the hand lettering above :) Part and parcel of many high stress situations... and a passing phase as usual.

Last week's Harts Pass. A few friends have 9th grade kids off to school away from home next year... THAT would be pretty rough, but great of course if the kids are excited about it!

A few fires in the south valley last week... which were amazingly and quickly under control. And a new one this weekend to the north and west. Summer in the wild west indeed!

People (and marmots) get excited about things in vastly different ways. I mean sure, there are some common instances of general excitability... but then there are those finer lines or variations on a theme. Hope that you're enjoying summer -- whether it it shows or not :)

Harts Pass No. 351


My daughter and I were out for a run last week - and were attacked by a Goshawk! This happened to me maybe six or seven years ago and I know that the same bird has been equally aggressive with a few other friends and neighbors that have likewise accidentally ventured too close to its nest (which I still haven't actually seen BTW). At various other times I've encountered cougars, black bears and protective mother mule deer (almost as aggressive as the goshawk) but being chased through the woods by a taloned falcon is pretty much the scariest encounter of them all!

Gack! My comic from last week -- to be follow shortly by the strip for 6.21. Now that summer is officially here, be sure so save some lazy days!

Graduation was last week at our local high school, but the critters at Harts Pass are wise beyond their years as per usual. G'day mate!

Spiders invading the house... and the Paris Climate Agreement on my mind.
