Surviving Day to Day


Surviving Day to Day is a hilarious single panel cartoon featuring ’slapshot moments’ from the lives of the newly married, financially strapped couple, ’Frank and Carla’. Through a daily dose of marital madness, this delightful young couple remind us that we are not alone and there are, in fact, scores who are free falling with us. But that isn’t all! As if the challenges of married life aren’t enough…readers will succumb to the zany antics of Frank’s live-in grandmother, Nanna, as she pushes this relationship to the brink. "Day to Day"…the wild side of ’average’! Drawing from her life experience, which includes a variety of academic pursuits, diversified work endeavours and household life, Deborah Peyton created a single panel cartoon with universal appeal. In April 1994, her feature "Day to Day" appeared in its first daily newspaper and since then had been clipped, posted, and faxed by scores of chuckling fans. Thousands of people, through two daily Canadian newspapers and the Internet, are enjoying this delightful cartoon everyday.
