If you don’t have a smartphone, running away from home can be quite difficult.
(This comic strip was previously published on July 27, 2009.)
300 feet away still counts as running away, right? lol
It does to me!
300 feet is like running from one end of the football field to the other. That is some great connection!
300 miles would be a lot better!
I;m sorta limited by my wi-fi connection too. You won’t see going but so far out of range. 🙂
You need to get a better wi-fi connection like me!
or find the nearest Starbucks or Maccas, they both offer free WIFI..just saying 🙂
I guess I better start looking for free wifi, then! Can I get free fries with that?
I ran away from home several times when I was a kid but always went back when I got hungry 😳
I guess you shoulda brought more food!
For once a ‘technical issue’ is actually working out in my favor! Come back, Fraz!
Don’t worry, I’m still in range! Just hiding!
Fraz, come back, you chocolate and wine gums are ready!
Can you email them to me?
You wombies don’t understand how this whole food thing works. Kris Kringle tells me that you want a virtual cookie sample at Japanese Ghost.
How does that work exactly?
What? You can’t email me some cookies? I think you need to upgrade something!
Don’t you want the real thing instead?
Can’t you email me the real things? I’m on the run!
I just did!
Thanks, aunt Debbie! Now I won’t starve to death!
That will never happen!
Well it won’t now! But I almost starved before you and Andro gave me that extra food!
There is no chance of that ever happening Fraz, as you are too well liked around here you know 🙂
It’s good to have good friends!
I love the video that Andro made, one of my favorites of his!
It’s my favorite one too!
Thank you Fraz 🙂
Sorry for pinching your chocolates! They were too hard to resist!
Thank you Deb and what an honour being featured like this, I am so pleased, not sure what others will make of it but it was a lot of fun making this video 🙂 xxx
I’m sure anyone who watches your video will enjoy it.
Thank you Peter that is a very
nice thing to say my great friend 🙂
It has Wombies and a funny you. Who could ask for anything more?
Thanks Peter 🙂
Your welcome Andro! And PDM is right, everyone who see it is sure to enjoy it very much!
You don’t have an orange sidebar. What the!?
The top secret for Wombies only Wombania website does!
Or Teddy got something on the screen…
He is kinda a messy eater.
You are welcome to come to my house again Fraz!! we have internet here, don’t worry 😉
I’m coming Kroten! We had a really good time last time!
On behalf of Novroz’s turtle family, we would like to say: HAPPY WORLD ANIMAL DAY to all the wombies around the world 🙂
I didn’t know October 4th was World Animal Day.
Happy World Animal Day to you, too, Kroten, and to all the animals out there, too!
I didn’t know that either…
Nor did I.
The world’s animals obviously need a better PR agent.
Get you a MiFi wireless Fraz. You can take that with you. It will pick up everywhere your phone pics up.
Or you can just come to Gatorhead and use mine.
That would be really cool, Bo! I’ve always wanted to play with some gators!
They won’t play with you. They have been taught never to play with their food.
Food?? You mean those gators would try to eat me??
They will eat anything.. Swamp rats, the giant swamp rats in Louisiana they call Nutria, pigs, people and probably would consider Wombats a delicacy.
Go ahead and come to Gatorhead though, we won’t let the gators get you.
OK, Bo! I’ll make sure to stay away from the gators! They sure don’t sound very friendly.
I agree, in fact they sound scary 🙁
Maybe even scarier than Zombies!
They would have to be extremely scary to be scarier than those stinking Zombies 🙁
I guess it depends on how big the gators are! But Bo would keep us safe.
I am pleased to here that 🙂
And to hear it too 🙂
Most people don’t know it but gators can run in spurts up to 40 mph.
Yikes! That’s even faster than wild wombats!
It does not take much to subdue them. All you have to do is tie their jaws shut. How much do you weigh, Fraz?
I don’t know. But not nearly as much as a gator!
I need to get one of those mifi thingies!
He can always camp out in the back alley of a Starbucks! 😉
That might work, too!
That is way better than my wireless connection
I still wish it was further! I’m hiding in the trees in the backyard!
Would you like me to send you up a chocolate shake on the pulley?
A double, please! I think I’m going to be here a while!
Send it up with a big bag of wine gums to last you till supper time.
Yay! It lasted me till now! Now I’ve got to figure out how to get some pancakes so I can stay here all night!
I have just made a fresh batch of twenty five pancakes just for you, and as a special treat I have a big triple chock cookie cake with fudge topping 🙂 I hope you like it Fraz because these are all for you 🙂
Oh boy! I not gonna starve at all! It’s fun camping out in the trees like this! Especially when I’m not hungry.
You will always have plenty of goodies to eat and drink with all of us looking out for you Fraz 🙂
I didn’t think about that! I have really great friends!
you surely do 🙂
We need to have another party with our friends!
That could be a good idea for a new video 🙂
Maybe you could bring your camera to the next party!
Yes why not 🙂
Sometimes 300 feet is all you need. Just saying.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
300 feet is a lot better than nothing!
Yeah, won’t be going far without that. The attention span will drop.
I don’t believe anyone actually lived without the internet!
You are right no one can make it without internet…
I know I couldn’t!
Hey Fraz I always believed you were not being appreciated enough…even when you are leaving those two are making fun of you…
listen after 300f all me i will give you access through my Wifi…
you know i am always with you..
I know, Soma! No one appreciates me! Well at least not my relatives! I know I can count on you, though!!
I will help you out too Fraz, remember our little jingle all for one and one for all 🙂 Now let’s have a few pancakes while you tell me all about your teddy 🙂
I guess I’m a bit old for a teddy. But he’s been with me forever! And he always listens to me. Even when no one else does. Oh, and his name is Bear!
You are never too old for a teddy bear,
even I have got one so no problemo 🙂
Really?? That makes me feel a lot better.
Oh yes I have a teddy bear alright,
actually I have a couple of merekats
I like meerkats, too!
They are really cute 🙂
The ones on TV are! I’ve never seen one for real.
Me neither but I wouldn’t mind it 🙂
They have some meerkats at the zoo here. But I’m kinda scared to go. If I do, they might not let me back out!
Wow I wish my connection could extend 300 feet … then I could get email while getting my snail mail! W.C.C.
Then maybe your snail mail could email you!
Run Fraz run! They might appreciate you more when you aren’t around for awhile. 🙂
They might! They don’t know how valuable I am!
Hopefully they will all know how precious you are soon, then you will more than likely get lots of goodies for being so good 🙂
I sure hope so!
It’s getting a bit cold out here in the trees.
And dark, too.
Not that I’m afraid of the dark.
But my teddy bear is.
Come on down then and stay with me in My Gothic Realm, we can get Deb and Soma over and we can have a picnic by the tombstones, well that’s if the Skeletons haven’t run off with our picnic party hats? 🙁
OK! That sounds like fun!! I hope Deb and Soma can make it!
They never miss out of yummy
chocolates and pancakes 🙂
I think they’re like Wombies! They can smell treats from a long ways away!
Yes I know that I am getting some of your traits, next I will be sniffing out a wine gum at thirty paces 🙂
I could train you for that!
Great, you teach me the art of wine gum hunting and I will sort you out with the Vampy take off’s and landings 🙂
It’s a deal!! I’m still not a very good flier!
Well, if they can’t see it, you can run away to my house because I think you’re just adorable! Mind you, you may run out of internet halfway there or so. 🙂
I’d like to if I could! I’m not sure if I could find my way to your place without google maps, though!
Download the app for your phone…
My wooden cell phone doesn’t do apps.
McDonald’s has free Wifi. Maybe Fraz will move in there. I’m assuming that’s Andro in the video
Yes Tony that is the nuttier side of
yours truly and thank you for noticing 🙂
If McDonald’s had free pancakes too, I’d never have to leave! Maybe I could live in their dumpster like Barry and Cedric.
Good idea but don’t eat any of that sweaty cheese, it always stinks like a skunks behind after being in the dumpster, especially on those very hot days 🙁
I’ll just stick with the pancakes and french fries, then!
That’s dangerous Fraz. My Mum might put you on an diet & exercise plan too
I’ll make sure to stay away from your mom! I know what she did to you, Cedric!
Yes Cedric is getting thinner than a rake these days, he needs plenty of building up again, maybe some cheese and pancakes would be a good start? 🙂
Cedric can come to our party and have all the chocolate and cheese he can eat!
Great idea everyone is welcome to share our goodies and Cedric can have some broccoli and sprouts too if he likes:)
If he wants. . .
Thank you for adding my video to your leading page Peter, it is truly a fine honour my great friend 🙂 🙂
You’re very welcome, Andro! That’s the first video anyone else has made that mentions Wombania.
it won’t be the last I can
tell you that for sure 🙂 🙂
I hope not!
OMG…..I miss one post and I am way down here. Hellllloooooo up there.
There’s still cake left, so you’re not too late!
Good I could just eat some cake 🙂
I set up a little table down here. Cake and cake and cake. And milkshakes!
That’s great as I love cake and milkshakes 🙂
Who doesn’t?? The only think better than a double layer cake is a triple layer cake!
Hey Androgoth, leave me some, gosh!!!!
When you’re with Wombies, you have to be quick with the cake!
I’ll make some more.
Hello Loon are you enjoying it down here? 🙂
NO!!!! I like to be the first to post a comment 😉
It’s way too hot and sweaty down here 🙁
It gets a lot smellier at the bottom, hey not that one, watch it Loon I meant down there, below all these comments 🙂
I think it’s those Zombies. They find their way into everything!
You have to be quick around here Loon, I’m always a bit late too, but one day I will be first you will see 🙂
I’d like to be first in something once, too, but I’m usually last.
Sometimes, being fashionably late means joining some really fun conversations.
As long as there’s still food left, I guess it would be okay to be late.
ah, that teddy bear has good tastes.
Teddy is smarter than the average Bear!
Haha! That’s a joke.
His name is Bear.
It’s always the important things that you cannot take with you.
Yeah, like my pirate ship!
They used to come back for food, now it’s electronics….makes sense.
I’m trying to find free wifi so I don’t ever have to go back!
to all of my Wombie
friends and of course
to Chris too 🙂 🙂
Thanks, Andro! Yes, this is our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Officially, Thanksgiving Day is Monday, though a lot of people have the big meal Sunday instead.
You don’t really have anything equivalent in the UK, do you?
Here it is called the Harvest Festival but I don’t celebrate it my great friend, and have not since I was a young boy, though many in the UK do of course 🙂
I’ll celebrate it for you! Any special eating time shouldn’t be missed!
I bet Fraz goes twice that distance. (then he notices the connection is gone)
I need a smartphone so I can really run away!
Sounds about right. One can’t run away from internet.
No, and I’d never want to! I just want to run away from my relatives!
His teddy bear will go crazy when he looses internet. 🙂
Yeah, Bear doesn’t like to go offline!
I love the teddy bear sitting in the wagon just looking at the laptop. Really funny!
Thanks, Denny. I figured the bear needed some entertainment on his wagon ride.
He’s not going far with that get-up – love the wheels!
Chris needs to get better wireless so I can run away farther!
He should expand his horizons and keep going. I’m sure he’ll find some router nearby with either no password or a WPA password which he can hack into without too much hassle. What will bring him crawling home is when he runs out of chocolate and wine gums.
I need to find places that give out free chocolate and wine gum samples!
I wonder if Teddy is good at hacking?
I have just added a posting regarding your Wombat Day so I hope it generates a good response to your website Peter, oh and I hope that you didn’t mind me using your Wombie Wombat Day Graphic as it really adds to the flavour of that posting 🙂 okay time to learn some of those steps for the Wombat dance 🙂 lol
Have a wickedly fine start to your week and Happy Thanksgiving my great friend 🙂
Thanks, Andro! Wombat Day needs all the publicity it can get. And I don’t mind you using the graphic at all.
I was going to e mail you first but then I remembered that you said I could use any of your posters, and so as it is added for you and all our great Wombie pals I thought it would be alright, and thank you for letting me know that it is 🙂
Have a fun rest of evening Peter and I hope that your day has been fun 🙂
That’s fine, Andro, you don’t need to ask. Or worry. It would be quite ridiculous to be upset with someone for trying to help publicize his own work.
Never underestimate a determined Wombie or an open wireless connection…
It’s harder to find a connection than you think!
Looks like its time for some backyard camping out. 🙂
I’m hiding out in the trees behind the house! Don’t tell anyone!
You are always more than welcome here, Fraz. Claret and Bruno will camp out with you in the camper if you like.
That’d be cool! I wish I had a camper! Even though I ran away, I still have to go to school! Maybe I can get down there on the holidays!
Ours is only about 30 feet or less..300 feet is very far!
I guess I never ran away from home, even though at one time I tried to. After a whole day of being outside and without anything else to do and no establishments were open anymore, I decided to go home super late. Good thing no one was waiting for me at home. Guess what, the next day I found out that they never bothered about me because they thought I locked myself up in my room the whole day! So I do not consider that I ran away from home, because everyone thought I was at home the whole time, LOL!
That sounds like something that’d happen to me! No one would even notice I’m gone! Or care!
Kids mostly are leaving for short time and distance. 😉
The only reason I went back was for chocolate.
From one coffee shop to the next!
Yeah, but I don’t like coffee!
