    Actually, the answer to yesterday’s question was that the grass was white in panel 3. Of course, that was a colorist problem…

    Lagging quarters? Is that like pitching pennies with inflation?

    One of the very few times you’ll see a cigarette in a family comic these days.

    Varnes: I lagged quarters in my misspent youth! And I’m an old fart. Bought a lot a of cigarettes with my winnings.

    I thought it was a family owned and operated restaurant. I didn’t know they hired busboys.

    If the cartoonist stays away from a character long enough he can make any changes to their appearance he wants. Maybe he’s staying away from Arlo and Janis so he can make changes. Remember he did make changes to Arlo’s hair a couple weeks ago.

    Quarters!!?? In my youth, and leeneuman you can’t be that old, quarters were serious money. We lagged pennies in the 50’s.

    Well, this is supposed to be about babyboomers, and they are starting to pass away at an accelerated rate. Maybe it’s time for gray hair and a walker? I AM a boomer, so I’m allowed to talk this way!( and I’m starting to lose friends at an alarming rate)

    So how many years have elapsed since they first made the decision to sell? Meg was only 3 or 4? The timeline has become confusing.

    PS. I am also a 57 year old boomer, & I am going for my 3rd degree Dan black belt. I hear 60 is the new 30. I am in the best shape of my life! I have friends who have passed, also, but we are not old, by any means! I hope that Arlo & Janis, if drawn “older”, take a youthful attitude & are active & vibrant. According to stats, your prime earning years are 40-60, so you do not have time to be “old”!

    I’m one of the last boomers (born in 1964). I just turned 50.

    Even Andy Crap…err…Andy Capp quit smoking “fags” (British slang for cigarettes).

    Meg will miss the place, since it is a big part of her life. And this is not the first reference to the busboys being slightly shady.

    I guess what she’s saying is that if her grandfather really is loaded, she wants to see something from it rather than spend all her time is a tourist-trap greasy spoon. And I can’t fault her for that feeling.
