I wonder where it came from?

I actually thought this was their son for a moment until I realized he wouldn't be this big, I'm smacking myself upside the head as I type this now :D

What the heck did she find? A bomb? An old landmine?

How the F*CK are there bombs at that beach!? D-: is it a bomb even? It's hard to tell.

Could be a practice shell :P

Would a pratice shell tick, though?

Oh, shit. You guys better run for the hills!

Wow. Imagine finding one of those at your own beach.

I remember a story of a gardener finding one in his compost bag :P

Wow! Tim is going to duck and cover with her daughter as it explodes.

I have to say, Becky is so adorable. She's Willow's Mini Me, but so cute and cuddly I just want to hug her. :)

So will Ralf be Tim's mini me? He'll be 2 now ^^

Yeah, Becky is so cute. Even though her mother Willow is the female overprotective version of Homer Simpson. XD

*searches for the episode of "Man Lab" where James May taught how to disarm an unexploded WW2 bomb*

This brings to mind a gem of a line from James May: "In my day, we used to collect shells on the beach...Unexploded ones!"

Got to love James May :)

It's time for Tim's crash course in explosive ordinance disposal.

More like he'd get everybody out of the area.

I think it's a bomb from World War 2 from Pearl Harbor washed up shore.

A couple of times in WW2 Japanese submarines got close enough to shell the California coast. Maybe she found a shell from a Jap sub's deck gun.

That could be it!

Reminds of that episode of "Gilligan's Island" where Gilligan, while fishing, unintentionally drags an old WWII mine to shore, and starts ticking.

Stuff like that shows up around here every once in a while, especially with the shuttered Camp Butner nearby which was a U.S. Army installation now used by the National Guard. Parts of the area have been used as a shooting range years ago (with some special events still occurring on occasion) so there is always a chance of unexploded ordnance being buried in locations over the years which have since been redeveloped.
LongTom 28th May 2017, 1:36 PM edit delete reply
There are still unexploded ordinance in places all over Europe today that haven't been found yet, dating as far back as the Franco-Prussian War.

Next issue?
FreyFox 2nd Jun 2017, 6:35 PM edit delete reply
It was meant to be up today but there has been a fault with the website. I am looking into it.

I was hesitant to say something about this, but I thought it's best to mention it now.

I'm sure this was not intentional, though this strip was released not too long after the Manchester terrorist attack. :(
FreyFox 3rd Jun 2017, 1:04 PM edit delete reply
I drew this comic page in mid-April, well before the Manchester terrorist incident.
David31 3rd Jun 2017, 11:51 PM edit delete reply
I knew that it was done some time in advance, it was just poor timing overall.

(Posting this soon after finding out about another attack in London :()

I set the site to post the strips automatically.
