    Don’t be alarmed when his hands move around, either.


    And yes, Big….
    I guess grandfather clocks aren’t what they used to be when I was a child.


    Ours was very tall and stately one, and always stood in the corner, just in case.


    My mother warned us that he was a bit tightly wound,
    but we felt like he always had time for us.


    I remember saving up to buy him a birthday present from the second hand shop.

    Hey this just occurred to me:


    Funny that the NEW ones are called “digital” when it’s the OLD ones that have hands.

    One more thing…. and sorry to take up so much space,


    But I got home late tonight, and while I was typing a response on Wednesday’s forum, Thursday’s strips came out…..


    So forgive me, please, for posting it here instead:.


    Colonel — no! It doesn’t …um…. discommode me at all….
    it’s embarrassing that I don’t deserve it, but it’s wonderful….


    Wish I could save it in all its moving glory and hang it on my wall to look at on a rainy day!


    BTW.,…. LOL….. Al Gore isn’t such a great example of old, unless you want to make ME feel old too!


    And thank you, Larry… and again, everybody who said all that nice stuff….


    And thanks again for the thanks, Dogsniff and it’s great to see you back from the other side of the looking glass….


    I never got a chance to say I loved x_tech’s line-up… It was the BUSBY, of course….


    And puns from so many…. you guys crack me up….


    And I also meant to say to No. 6 — aye, the noo!


    Ok…. onward to, as Dogsniff said, just being funny again…. or making an attempt. :)
    Good night!

    A leak in Haberdashery has revealed the names of those in yesterday’s line-up.
    Trilby,
    homburg, bowler,
    cap, jockey, porkpie,
    topper, boater, busby, fez

    X_tech! You were supposed to keep that information under your hat!


    Today’s strip is full of clocks, and two of them are wired. That list could fall into the wrong hands.

    And thanks, 6 — I looked.
    Aw…

    I noticed Gramdfather is showing 7:20 on his face, the younger digital has 4:00. Prehaps senility is setting in on grandfather?

    But Grandfather will be glad to see you – he’ll be there with bells on.

    not to mention his enormous member provocatively swinging from side to side

    @Dave Hussell

    not only that, grandpa has a distinct ringing in his ears once each day.

    I expected grandfather to be much taller.

    My pleasure, SusanS, after all, it’s not every day an intriguing woman on the internet ask you to stalk her, er, bookmark her profile.
    Dagnabbit, the strike html tag doesn’t work here. Furthermore the spellchecker in my browser suggested Gunboat as the correct spelling for dagnabbit.!?!?

    And now the Steve Miller Band’s Fly Like an Eagle is runnin’ through my head.
