Maybe I’m showing my age but I think Joe Btfsplk crossed my path this week. I thought I was recovering from the cold I caught at the beach. Then Tuesday night, I started seeing stars. I went to my dentist yesterday and it turns out I have a sinus gum infection. Evidently the infected sinus cavity presses on the rootѕ of thө teeth. It often happens when the immune system is challenged. So now I’m taking antibiotics and pain killers.
So does anyone remember Joe Btfsplk? He was Al Capp’s creation - the cartoonist best known for Li’l Abner. Joe was a lonely man. The little guy walked around with a rain cloud over his head. Anyone who came in contact with him had bad luck so they avoided him like the plague. He was a minor character but I loved him. When asked how to pronounce his name, Al Capp would blow a raspberry. They just don’t make comics like that anymore.
