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

    Sitting here sipping my Glenfiddich I think I feel the need for a little respect to go out to Otis Redding “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” by the way the use of Respect is intentional, although Arthea made it famous, R.E.S.P.E.C.T. is one of Otis’s songs…..
    _______________________________________________
    Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
    I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come
    Watching the ships roll in
    And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

    I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Wastin’ time

    I left my home in Georgia
    Headed for the ‘Frisco bay
    ’Cause I’ve had nothing to live for
    And look like nothin’s gonna come my way

    So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Ooo, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Wastin’ time

    Look like nothing’s gonna change
    Everything still remains the same
    I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
    So I guess I’ll remain the same, yes

    Sittin’ here resting my bones
    And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
    It’s two thousand miles I roamed
    Just to make this dock my home

    Now, I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Oooo-wee, sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Wastin’ time

    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…
