Signs of Spring

I've seen robins all winter. I don't know what old wive's tale says that robins are the harbingers of spring but it's all a lie. Today's strip has Brutus apparently seen the "first" robin of spring. As I'm writing I am near death. I'm sick which is one reason I've been negligent with updating this blog. I don't like being sick because when I get sick I get sick. Even the humor and whimsy of TBL can't ease my pain although I do love the look of the strip as it seems that Brutus is trapped behind that window only able to look out on a world he never created.
