    see everyone? we haven’t heard from the kids because they were to busy to call, that’s all, not like they were trying to make a living or something. thank you Jimmy Johnson, its nice to see them back

    Oops. Looks like my GoComics skipped a day. Caught up now, though.

    I’m glad they’re actually talking. My stepson is away at college and is very busy between school, tutoring and working so we mostly text and email but it’s nice to talk every once in awhile.

    Lots of folks haven’t grasped the fact cell phones don’t care about distance or location – the roof or 2,000 miles away

    Also that phones call out both ways.

    ; ) Either that, or a fuzzy caterpillar from the garden…

    Texting is tough while wearing work gloves.

    absolutely David. the excuse “so busy” is a lie. you aren’t busy every moment of the day, even the president and CEO’s have time to relax a bit.. if you don’t keep in touch it’s because you don’t care.

    from the land they are working it looks like they have moved to New Mexico or some desert area.

    Ok, my take is that Janis is wanting to text (panel 1). Then the phone rings. Note the surprised look (panel 2). Then she says SHE can talk (to Gene) (panel 3). Then, she sort of implies to Gene that why can’t they text (panel 4). Well, obviously the joke is Gene can’t text because of his gloves. And!!!! he called her back after seeing the text. (Except you need tiny fingers to call back, not gloves but that’s something else). So, we don’t know if they’ve been communicating…probably they’ve been texting, but Gene can only talk. We’ll have to see what he wants to talk about.

    Either JJ is getting lazy about background detail, or else Gene has a dustbowl thing going on.

    It’s a take off on the Geico “hump day” commercial with the camel.

    Holy moly! Look what Gene and his new bride have gotten themselves into. I used to do this kind of work as a kid. There was a tomato and pepper farm across the street from me when I was a kid and I started young.
