Buck up, son…

C’mon, Rusty…  No time for tears, boy.  And when did you you start calling him ‘Dad?’  He’s always been ‘Mark’ to you… Yup, that log was on a mission.  The laws of Nature, Space, Time and Physics have all taken a brief hiatus in order to make this all happen…  and is that Mark laying face up or face down in the water in panel 3?  Sure looks peaceful, though, don’t he??


I gotta tell you, the suspense is absolutely killing me.  Is there nothing Mark won’t do to get out of taking Rusty fishing??
