  • Jump Start Comic Strip

    I have been enjoying this week's line of strips from the comic "Jump Start" so I thought I would give you the links to look at them as well.

    Monday's strip I like because it's what I often feel like I need to ask when I go into my local hospital:


    Today I like this one because I think we should fill in the title of the book with the one Lisa and Dr. Maron wrote!


    Hope you enjoy,

            Thanks, Lynn,

            I miss the morning comics here, so I was glad to be reminded that I could view them online. Jump Start is also one of my favorites.

            I just checked Wed and Thur and they are good as well, so maybe we should just ask for the whole week or series, depending on how long it will last.
