Now I'm really curious. What did your ancestor do???And wonderful comics as usual. They always make me happy when I see a new page come up in my Reader :-) Sorry to hear about the migraines.
To make a long story short, he was running private business ventures while secretly using collateral from the Plymouth colony. Once the pilgrims caught on, he kind of had to skip town. ;-)
Love knowing the back story! It is refreshing to hear a about Mayflower ancestor who wasn't a saint. Ancestors were human, otherwise we wouldn't be ; )
Sorry to hear about the migraines! They must be awful. On a happier note, I love the wife's beaming face contrasted with the face-in-hands and pain-ridden cry of "Silence Woman!" :) The back-story is interesting too. I hope that your headaches will clear up soon.
