    By golly, that’s some great shoe tying there, Gerald!

    What th’??!!


    The Tiki Bar is closed??
    Really?


    The Tiki never closes…
    I didn’t think there was even a key


    Monkey?!
    Did you lock the bar?
    Were you drunk or something?
    Are you OK???


    I have a feeling this place will be a mess in the morning!


    I gotta stick a note on the door somehow….
    Not exactly carrying stationary and thumbtacks….
    Oh, OK, I’ve got a Bandaid in my purse…. and an old envelope…

    :c()) --Are you OK?


    I had to go home for a bit between days....My bus was late on the way back, and now I'm locked out.


    You know I don't get up very early... but as soon as I've had some coffee, I'll come back here and help you.Hope all is well.

    Do I hear Otis Redding in the distance?
    It might be coming from the Piano House.


    I guess it’s too late to go visiting….
    I should just go back to the salon and have some hot chocolate…. maybe with just a drop of comfort….

    I do keep a bit of brandy on hand ….
    for…um… you know…. fruitcake….
    and when I have a cold….

    And I guess for when I’m locked out of the Tiki….

    BTW…. forgot to say that when I first saw today’s strip, I truly thought Gerald’s “modest objective” was Irma.


    One might think it a “modest” goal cos she’s already his wife (I assume!) and doesn’t seem to be out of his league…

    But it IS an “objective” nonetheless, cos she looks a little…. um…. let’s say “hard to persuade.”


    After looking at it for a while I saw that he was, in fact, pointing at his shoelace.
    I’m glad he actually had an objective more within his reach.

    @SusanSunshine

    Well, I heard, through the Ballard Grapevine, that Irma was getting sick and tired of having to tie Gerald’s shoes all the time, so she finally bought him this…

    …which he dutifully studied for the past week. This morning, he achieved SUCCESS!


    Irma, feeling very encouraged, just stopped into the Ballard Book and Tractor Supply and purchased this…

    I checked it out at their web site, but there was no safe way that I could find to copy the image, so I think I’ll let sleeping roosters lie! It is a very lovely piece, but even with all my Ballard businesses, their merchandise is a little pricey for me! Their catalog is indeed a “wish book” !
