Return of the Gabbers

With the arrival of August, my time dwindles down. I start back up to work later this month which means my time for writing gets smaller. All July I wrote a new story for Monday through Friday along with posting a new Comic Comics everyday. This made July 2016 the month with the most entries with 55. The previous record was a tie between July 2009 and September 2013 at 53. Changes are being made to accommodate a new schedule that I will have to inevitably take. Tauy Creek Digest will now be just twice-a-month. All of the written series will move to the weekends, #ElevenSeasonsAndAMovie will return, and Tauy Creek Quarterly, a series of longer stories that was published as ebooks on Amazon will not return.

I'm hoping that I can keep Comic Comics going through the school year although when it will actually post remains to be seen. Don't forget about Tauy Creek on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Patreon. Hope you had a good summer and please, tell your friends about this website.

As many recall, I recently moved. It's been good so far but we seem to be having the opposite problem that the Bumsteads are talking about here. Since we have moved into our house, we have lost both of our neighbors. Our neighbors to the south disappeared back in November with sporadic trips back every couple of weeks. It is clear that their house is now empty and they only come back to mow but are they going to sell? I don't know.

Meanwhile, our neighbors to the north painted their house shortly after summer started and now their house is empty with a real estate sign in front. We are just bleeding neighbors while the Bumsteads have regained neighbors that had left.

Barney Google and Snuffy Smith
One could take Snuffy's statement to mean "I don't see you in church either because I'm never there" but the look on the Parson's face indicates that he rarely is in church, delegating any type of preachin' to the God-fearing widow-women of Hootin' Holler or calling in another preacher from a neighboring town. Don't worry, though. The Parson is still the one to collect any kind of church offering that is dropped in the basket, that you can be sure of.
