    Doris had it up to here, apparently. And ’Edwin is once again out in the cold. The residents of Ballard are getting prickly, what with all the snow and all.

    This seems to happen fairly often to people on Ballard Street!

    Feel better soon Stel!

    Good advice.

    With sudden circumspection, he realized wife #3 wasn’t so bad compared to this new girl.

    I fell asleep and I have to go to bed very soon…..
    but couldn’t somebody go over there and make sure Edwin gets inside the house before he freezes?

    Hopefully he already did, and he and Doris are on their 3rd cup of coffee, laughing about the whole thing.

    But if not, he can come over to the Tiki for some pancakes and yak bacon.

    Any of you guys got any pants that might fit him…
    no, not you, little monkeys…
    not even if you wore pants.

    Oh.. OK… yeah, a couple of you could probably pick the lock. I’ll go with you….
    if Edwin’s inside we’ll just turn around…
    and if he’s outside we’ll either let him in or bring him back here.

    Then I gotta go home.

    Before we go….
    a couple of things from yesterday…..

    Hi Shika… nice to see you back.

    Dogsniff … I dunno why your late night posts sometimes don’t show up for me till morning.

    You commented in between my posts but even though I refreshed I never saw it till today.

    And Essex…. I’m so sorry…
    I didn’t mean to….

    Here you go….

    Hope these help!

    Stel…. I’ll get you some too.

    Yeah yeah, I know… totally different problem….

    but just ask any 4 year old about the healing power of a band-aid.
    Good for what ails ya.

    These are pretty…

    …or do you want the kind the little monkeys love (they’re what I use, of course.)

    No little guy, you don’t need a band-aid.
    There are for Stel!

    Edwin will eventually get tired of such treatment. Now that I no longer have someone abusive like my X, I seldom find a reason to disagree about anything. If I did, I would never retaliate in a mean manner like Doris.

    Edwin suddenly remembers why he made all those sneaky improvements to the Doghouse (located, quite conveniently, right around back of the Tiki Bar) – the Bark-a-lounger chair with heat and vibration, the gas fireplace, the big-screen TV, and (most important) the secret stash of donuts and Snapple.

    Susan, I want a band-aid! I want the flowered one! Oh, please, oh please, oh please… I want it on my hand! No, my face! My knee! Can I have three?

    I like to argue with people on top of the weather vane on top of the lighthouse. They get the point pretty darn quick!

    Rule #1 of wining an argument with your wife.

    You won’t…

    @SusanSunshine: This site has not worked well for me ever since I dropped my PRO status, and I’m not kidding. My lack of posting lately is not because I’m not trying. Lately, the comments come up, but not the picture. I’m not saying they’re doing this to me, but I wouldn’t rule it out. I had yet another comment deleted by the moderator (glorified hall monitor) over at Lio last week. I guess I’m going to be like my idol, Superfrog, who just pokes in once in a while, rips out a good one or two, and calls it a day. But you can be sure that I read Ballard Street every day, and am proud to consider myself one of the bunch, no matter how much (or little) I participate in the antics. There’s a lot more than a comic and some comments going on here. And while I’m at it, good to see you back Essex 60!

    I love the polka dot band aids the most!! They always make me feel better and I like them to match my outfits!

    Let’s see….how about red with white polka dots?
