Snarky Candiru2

We find out why it is John ends up cowering in a toolshed today when he monopolizes the can to read his paper in peace.

Panel 1: Now that John has finally clued in and moved to the other side of the couch, he still cannot relax because Mike and Liz are arguing about whatever pointless thing that will never matter children argue about. Having had enough, he tells them to knock it off.

Panel 2: He then unhinges his jaw and yells about how he's just come from a miserable day at the office.

Panel 3: We foreshadow that icon someone used to have that had April tell John to quit morphing into Elly when he continues channeling her; this is because he too looks as if he's pleading for his life when he asks if there's one room in the house where he can cower behind his paper instead of interacting with his family in peace and quiet.

Panel 4: A little while later, we find Elly knocking on the bathroom door asking him how long he's going to be in there. Y'see, she has to take a nice long bath in order to avoid dealing with the kids and.....

Summary: As one might guess, we're about to launch into another set piece in which John soothes the pain of having to pretend to be a mature adult by buying an ego-gratifying toy. That's because he was screaming like this just before he bought the HeylookitMETedMobile of Overcompensation. All we need now is for him to be at the office mooing about how his life is zipping by too fast and how he wants very much to be a (selfish and shortsighted) child again.

Paul Lucas did not win the Trille d'or

Paul Lucas' group Lucie D and the Immortals were nominated in the category Artist Solo or Group for a Trille d'or 2019 for their EP Les thèmes de la vie.

Best Solo Artist or Band - Jazz
Janie Renée 

The Gala was held the end of April 20 to May 2 in Ottawa! 

While they did not win, they did have a House Concert Fundraiser for Lucie D & the Immortals on April 26 and Paul Lucas finally returned White Horse to play with his group.  There is no indication as to whether Lynn Johnston went with him to either event.  As they say, it is an honour simply to be nominated.

In honour of Lucie D & the Immortals’ nomination for the national Trille d’or award in the Jazz Album of the Year, please join them for an evening of great music and help them get to Ottawa May 2nd to walk the Red carpet for their chance to receive this prestigious national music award.

Bring your favourite beverage and join Lucie D on vocals, Andrea McColeman on keyboards and Paul Lucas on guitar for an evening of wonderful original French tunes with smooth harmonies and R & B classics that will keep you out of your seat all night long.
