Saving

We hate Daylight Saving Time and, no matter what else anyone says, we lose an hour of sleep and feel jet-lagged for two weeks whether it's Spring or Fall.

Trick or Treat 2017

Our annual Halloween posting is probably our favorite of the year. Not just because we love Halloween, although that certainly enters into it. But because it allows us to showcase the real kids who are demonstrating the central principle of this unusual webcomic: Life can treat you unfairly, but you can fight back with humor.

We don't normally get misty at Halloween, but we can't hold back a manly sniffle or two (and a lot of approving laughter) while looking at the wonderful wheelchair costumes put together by these kids, their families, and caregivers. They're all heroes in our book, and a genuine inspiration.

And so here they are - TWO galleries this year. Enjoy, and best wishes to you and yours for this kookiest, spookiest of holidays!   -Stilt
