Played hooky from work myself today. It was worth it... I took Mom to church today after being stuck for weeks at the nursing home, then we joined my brother Tim and his wife Shera at the Dairy Queen for lunch. And I'm finishing two new MARK AND DEE comic strips tonight and tomorrow, full inks, coloring, and balooning on the way. Yeah, I'm taking an absence point for it, but it was more than worth it.
