    It does scare the pets and people who have experienced bombings in the past, like those with wartime experiences.

    Ludwig will just have to wait to pursue his happiness till tomorrow.
    Hopefully, Arlo and Janis are enjoying some fireworks.
    Happy 4th, A&J fans!

    You haven’t lived until you’ve had a 50 pound dog jump in your lap, hide his head under your arm and stay there for the duration!

    What am I doing here, playing on Gocomics!?! Those potatoes aren’t going to salad themselves!

    The cats here have a spot and strips, yet the colorist insists on coloring them blue.

    I never even considered that. You are correct. Our next door neighbors generally have parties that go on until the wee-smalls complete with gunshots and illegal fireworks.

    This summer, a police officer bought the house across the street. Memorial Day was silent at 11:05. Karma is wonderful.

    Our St. Bernard used to try to hid under the kitchen table. You’d think it was a séance – the table bobbled all over the place.

    At 10:30 on the 1st our 95 pound Belgian Sheppard sought comfort from our 14 pound cat. Some guard dog!

    Our Saint liked to sleep under the kitchen table. When the doorbell rang, he would take off across the kitchen, dragging the table with him like a turtle’s shell.

    Boy, these pictures are so drawn just so exactly right! Even the body postures and ear positions are spot on. Sometimes I appreciate the cartoon, but sometimes I also really appreciate the cartoonist. This is one of those times. Wow.

    I think that the thing with the spot, with its short tail tucked as far down as it will go, is a dog.

    That’s funny about the police officer, Dani! We live in front of some used-to-be woods (until the boy next door burned them down about twenty years ago). Now someone uses the field to have his fireworks show. Last night, it really heated up (so to speak).
    My hard-of-hearing husband finally asked, “What’s that pounding?”
    “Fireworks.”
    “What?”
    “*Fire*works!”
    “What?”
    [Etc., etc., etc. Finally,]
    “Fire wood?”
    FireWORKS!”
    “But it’s only July 3rd!”

    This is how Independence Day was celebrated in the 19th Century. Nowadays it’s just fireworks and cookouts, and the occasional band concert, and I could do without the fireworks.

    I remember you mentioning that before.
    The right neighbors keep life interesting.

    Have a good day everybody and keep the tater salad coming.
