In June of 2000 dad took me on a fishing trip to the keys and I remembered being really confused and asking “How do they know it’s 90 miles away if you can’t even see it?”

And we continue with some “a Brush Fixed With Love” aftermath. Soon after the events of that comic, Logan’s dad, Salomon, decided to take Logan for a little fishing trip in Port Mackerel. Little did Logan know that despite hiding his crush easily from his friends, his sharp eyed fisher dad caught the signs immediately. Salomon gives his son some advice the best way he knows. Fishing metaphors.

Mystery of Bobby Dunbar

4 year old Bobby Dunbar disappeared on a family fishing trip. He was found 8 months later under the custody of a man named William Cantwell. While Cantwell readily admitted that he wasn’t the boy’s father, he claimed that he knew the boy’s mother and that this boy was named Charles Bruce-Anderson (Bruce for short). Cantwell claimed to have the mother’s permission to travel with the boy.

Investigators didn’t buy his story and took the boy to reunite him with the Dunbars. Complications arose almost immediately. Some people say that the boy yelled “mother” and ran towards Lessie Dunbar while others say the child was frightened and Lessie seemed to doubt whether he was her child. The next day the family claimed to have found familiar molds and markings on the boy’s body and that this boy was in fact theirs.

Julia Anderson, a woman from North Carolina, claimed that the boy was named Bruce and that he was her son. Authorites paid her no mind and sent her back. Cantwell was charged with kidnapping and sentenced to life in prison.

In 2006, DNA testing(Bob Dunbar Jr. participated in a DNA test with his cousin) confirmed that the boy the police “found” was not biologically related to the Dunbars.

Why would a billionaire still want things?

I can never picture how a billionaire would want anything at all that he couldn’t easily have, much less be willing to lie or hurt people for it.  Once you’ve got enough money to spend the rest of your life drinking tequila sunrises on the beach, and for every one of your family and friends to spend the rest of their lives drinking tequila sunrises on the beach… shouldn’t you be at peace?  Shouldn’t your only remaining decisions be things like “learn how to paint” vs “book another fishing trip”?  How much of your wealth to leave to your children vs how much to use eradicating diseases?  Another tequila sunrise vs two more tequila sunrises?

Shit, that’s how I’d live the rest of my life if I had one hundredth of a billion dollars.  I’d have zero motivation to ever hurt anybody ever.

…Maybe that’s why I’m not a billionaire.

The Signs As Vacations!

because fuck it.
Aries: A family trip to the beach, a rainbow of umbrellas and towels all the way down, the smell of sunscreen, burying your dad in the sand, shrieking and running from the waves

Taurus: A resort vacation in Mexico, packed with young honeymooners and energetic families. Overpriced drinks and half-understood conversations in Spanish, the awe of a sunrise over the water.
