Happy 4th of July, my fellow Americans!
And a little something for our British neighbours who seem to be having a day of independence for themselves lately.

"A Tea Party 4-Koma"
by Jimmy Dimples
Two-shot of Les Safer looking over at Dr. Eaton Green, who sits at a table with potted flower and tea service with freshly poured cup. He peers at the tabloid British News, with headline: UK TO EU: WE'RE OUT.
1. LES: Your thoughts on the Brexit, Doctor?
2. DR. GREEN: Crossed feelings. Penny for yours, Les?
3. LES: You'd get change back. Though… *snrk!*
4. DR. GREEN: What's so funny?
Dr. Green looks up with an arched eyebrow and gives Les his full attention. Worried Les is suppressing a laugh.
5. LES: You'll be offended.
6. DR. GREEN: No, I won't. Out with it.
7. LES: Well… with their pushback against foreign authorities trying to tell them how to run their nation… and paying taxes to them…
Les leans in with a Cheshire cat's grin. Dr. Green keeps the same face as before..
8. LES: …your countrymen are acting just like A
Embrace of the Hunter: a Halloween VignetteTessa glowered down at the smaller fellow. "You are trespassing on the grounds of my Lady, poacher."Embrace of the Hunter: a Halloween Vignette by JimmyDimples
Folding his arms, Lesley showed a three-quartered smile up to the dangling, ensnared, golden haired amazon. "Not at all. You are in our woods. Otherwise you wouldn't have stepped into our trap."
Tessa wrested against the tangling vines that held and hung her from the tree branch like a side of beef at the butcher's in the market. But they simply wrapped and clung to her tighter. What frustrated her wasn't that she'd gotten caught in the snare in the first place. It was that she, a colossal amazon as well as Lady Sonya's champion and the Captain of her Guard, had gotten captured by some thin little twerp that she probably would've taken down by simply falling on him.
But she had to grudgingly admit the charming, even cute sandy-haired chap would have been otherwise likable if they had met in a tavern or the town square. He seemed clever.
JimmyDimples Inside OutJimmy found a good seat that was just one hair off to the right, but at the dead center stadium height of viewing the screen. And as he sat through the trailers, he nestled in, ready to enjoy the show. He wished his brother Larry was with him to see Pixels instead, but sadly, he had to work all this week. At least this movie was reportedly a sure winner.JimmyDimples Inside Out by JimmyDimples
But just as the logo for the theater's sound system showed, he felt something vibrate in his shirt pocket.
Meanwhile, in Jimmy Dimples Headquarters...
JD's Disgust: Aw, man, who's calling?
JD's Joy: Take it easy, maybe it's just a news alert or something. At least we muted it.
JD's Anger: Yeah, unlike the time we DIDN'T during choir practice just before church.
JD's Fear: ...it's still vibrating, guys.
JD's Disgust: And just as the movie's about to start. B, E, A, -utiful.
JD's Fear: What if it's work?
JD's Anger: What if it is?! If they think we're leaving the theater a
Off NightMat ought to have been an actor. He had a smile that seemed sincere no matter how full of rage he was. Behind a cash register, that came in very handy!Off Night by JoeyLiverwurst
Paul was a good guy, too. As much as Mat wanted to blame him, he lacked legitimate basis. Chris couldn't come into work last minute, and Paul couldn't find anyone else to take the shift. Against his better judgment, Mat agreed and hated himself for it.
Only six hours, Mat reminded himself: shorter than any school day. Before he knew it, he could go home and—oh, yeah, he hadn't gone inside yet.
Forgetting his signature smile, Mat entered the café and stomped past the counter for an apron.
"Toodle-oo," chirped the new girl, already halfway to the door.
Mat put on Led Zeppelin and tried not to feel sorry for himself. It wasn't that big a deal. It was just one night. He didn't have a hot date or a ticket to some expensive event. Besides, there were… eight people in line he hadn't noticed until right now. Awkward.
I'm an overweight, over-educated, under-mature hick in North Carolina's Greater Metropolitan Mayberry Area, back from teaching English in Guangzhou, China. I'd introduced the ABCs, the 123s, and the rights and wrongs to Cantonese kindergarteners, and am now seeking full time employment closer to home.
