    P.T. Barnum was right.

    Mom’s right, but she’s using faulty logic when she references what she paid for a whole box of ornaments that she bought back in 1957. She forgets that in 2001 (the time of this strip), $1.50 doesn’t have anywhere near the purchasing power that it did in 1957 — much less in 2012!

    Beat me to it.
    Of course she’ll have to collect all 12 of the series.

    I’m numbering the collectible puppy poop in my yard, and already there’s a line queuing up in the driveway. Seems like a win-win situation to me!

    She probably would.
    Cathy’s mom should understand… I’m sure she collected Hummel figurines back in the day.

    Good morning and hello to the entire Cathy clan! Here’s a wish that today goes better than yesterday! (Thanks for your nice comment yesterday, lindz.coop!!)

    probably one of those horrible overproduced Thomas Kinkade “collectibles”…

    It must be a “Christopher Radko” at $38 a pop.

    My mom has given one of my daughters an angel ornament and the other daughter a teddy bear ornament every Christmas of their lives. That’s a pretty neat collection. Other than those, my favorite ornaments are “art” made by my children when they were small.
    Ensoh, how are your yard collectibles selling? lol
    Here comes the weekend, Cathy Clan. Enjoy!

    Cathy’s mom isn’t the ONLY one who thinks $38.00 for a single “collectible ‘heirloom’” ornament is completely nuts!!!!! I sure wish I had Cathy’s money because apparently, she has TONS of it to spare — and burn — if she can so foolishly throw it away on ridiculously expensive ornaments (not to mention clothes) at the mall.

     

    lightenup: Hope the little ones are feeling better today!

     

    Hello and Happy Thursday to all the rest of my Cathy Clan friends!

    I actually kinda see both of their points today, although in a nutjobby way as usual.


    Still missing you, Aaron and Billy. Until you return, I guess I’ll step up and start saying …


    HI, MOM!


    Hello to the rest of the Clan as well.

    Hi Cathyites!! Well, I suppose we all have to splurge occasionally on something…
    I hope Lil & Jr are feeling much better today, lightenup!! At least they got it over with before Christmas.
