    I think it’s different days. With the point being that, except for their thoughts, it is no different from any other day for them.

    I would think it would be easier to get that if they were shown in different clothing.

    With as many in-laws and friends as we have, I cherish anytime alone with my wife.

    It is definitely Memorial. Panels 1 and 2 – laughing and chatting. Panel 3 – solemnly raising a toast (to the fallen). Panel 4 – laughing and chatting again.

    I would submit that when they are together, they are already with their best friend.

    Yes… they take a moment to remember why life is good, then return to living it. When someone gives you a gift, he or she is pleased when you make good use of it.

    Seems odd that they spend no time with Gene and his new family anymore. A holiday barbecue would have been the perfect time for that.

    Wouldn’t it be a good time for a trip to the lake to see their son and his wife?

    I think that Mr. Johnson’s reason for today’s strip was to make us stop and THINK about the reason for today. I had to stop and think about the strip and why there was no dialog, and why today is different than any other summer week end…..

    If you get a chance, read yesterday’s Red and Rover.

    Thank you Mr. Johnson!

    My wife has to work today. It’s close week and the accounts must be run!

    This really is a great strip – there is never a compulsion to “always be funny”, yet Jimmy finds the funniest part of normal life. If Jimmy keeps this attitude up (no pressure to always be hilarious), this strip will last a good long time.
