…Andy was caught in a “Deer Trap.” And no one knew where he was! This would have been the late Summer of 1980, and I would faithfully check in on Andy every morning over my bowl of Wheaties… and I knew that time wasn’t on Andy’s side, or mine, since I was about to leave home for a new academic year and I realized that the Wisconsin State Journal did not carry Mark Trail!!
To my delight, my dear mother began clipping out the dailies and sending them to me on a weekly basis- mounted to typing paper, with (of course) snarky comments in the margins… In case you wonder where I got this idea, The Daily Trail, I guess it all goes back to that…
And the artwork seems to be back on track… hallelujah!
I too used to read about Mark’s exploits over a bowl of Wheaties or oatmeal. I think this episode may have more promise. Mark looks like Mark and Andy looks to be his usual self. Just wondering where the truck driver went to bivouac. A chain motel or a Mom & Pop place. It would be a nightmare for us if our lab grabbed a ride on a truck. Maybe Mark & Cherry need an invisible fence.
