I'd wondered what Dandelion and Turtleneck Joe had been doing. :)
They are doing pretty good. :) I think Joe will trade one of the astronauts a typewriter and a bottle of vodka to get Dandelion treated.
I also think the mutants leave Joe alone because he can fix their radios and walkmen when they break.
A quite important skill! The world would be truly dead (undead?) without music.
