I know the clues were very subtle (only one of the Torch bears had visible eyelashes and there was only a tiny fragment of the Canadian flag) so it’s not particularly surprising that many people thought that Six and Sebben were the torch bears! They are much too small to go off around the world with out their mommee!
Hopefully, this toon will make things more clear!
On a sad note, I just discovered that one of my long time supporters and readers passed away on Christmas Eve. Sandy was one of my first regular readers and commenters. She supported all of my Kickstarter projects, including the 2017 one to send me to China. I looked forward to her comments. she always had an appreciative and funny comment about my ‘toons.
I was devastated to learn she had been diagnosed with ALS (known as Lou Gherig’s disease) sometime in the summer. I know her family and friends will miss her warmth, her humor, her festive photos she took of her schnauzers for every holiday. It’s not fair and I don’t like this one bit. This is probably not the time to say that I have a list of people the world would not miss, but there it is. Sandy, from whatever plane you now exist, I hope you’ll shine some light on us and help us find our way. And I hope where ever you are, you are surrounded by pandas and maybe a terrier or two. Not to mention the actual Mehitabel.
