Man: You'll need to do much more than just pass the time away here, because we're known to work live-long days.

    After one too many Orange Blossom Specials I got loose in the caboose with the fireman’s daughter. When asked why the caboose, I said because it was too hard to corner her in the roundhouse.

    The Break of Day cartoon next door made me think of you (not that you DO this, but just your name)

    I tried to post a comment on the origin of “featherbedding” but the censors wouldn’t permit it on.

    It had to do with a horsehair pad to prevent damage to the engineer’s elbow in the early 20th century.

    The union wanted protection, management rather cripple employees than spend fifty cents.

    JMC - I guess I was trained that way. I was trying to track down some common sense with a search engine, but I got derailed.

    Baldy — Thanks for asking, but I read Luann every day, and sometimes the comments.

    I do comment now and then.

    But I’ve been very busy for a few weeks, and usually post at1 or 2 in the morning.

    When I wade into 150 comments. and a lot of fussing and feuding, I’m just too tired. I’ll be back.

    Sorry, I don’t understand what you meant by “the “corrective” nature of the strip” — but honestly, I’m never bothered by anything in it.

    And Beau Honkus — you sly dog!

    For all you railroaders there is now a railroad dictionary by William E Wood. You can find it on Amazon.com and other places.

    I can’t get too steamed up about this, so I’ll just go back to strummin’ the old banjo, with or without Dinah.

    @Susan, I agree that sometimes a huge number of comments are too many to read, much less add to.
