As I'm reading this now, I am alarmed at how so little has changed since I drew this strip. I'm speaking about the conflict of Creationism and Science - this was done long before I even had my own 'Japheth'! I still grin when I see the knitting circle and the evangelist because I've actually been in their company in one form or another. I've also started to research some Newfoundland topics, like the Vikings.
On another note, that wood stove is a model that I had while living in an old country farmhouse south of Ottawa. Lovely little stove!
