Today's Cul de Sac, July 5 2011

Alice has a small history of putting together guidebooks (badgers), but this was mostly an excuse to use a music staff nib to draw something. In this case, water. These nibs aren't hard to find (Barnes & Noble has some in their stationery section) but they're of kind of limited value, unless you want to draw something five times at once. Or line a music staff, if people do that anymore. The nib looks like this-

and it can be a bugger to get all five nibs firing simultaneously. Usually getting just one to behave is all I ask.

I'm a musician, and when I write music, I use pre-made staff paper.

My word verification, appropriately, is "singers."

I noticed yesterday that the comic Speed Bump had a reference to Cul de Sac, and the Buckets is in a storyline that, yesterday, had a kid who looked a lot like Dill show up.
