    The place to shop are in those stores that now sell things by sizes, 0, 1, 2, or 3.

    Buying a swim suit is depressing no matter how they size them.

    Good morning, Cathy clan!! 4 more days of school here!

    Shyygirl – Thank you for clarifying what I said for legal eagle yesterday! You totally understood. :-) And a big CONGRATULATIONS to your graduate! He (she?) must be very smart to graduate with college credits! Impressive!

    GretchensMom – From yesterday… Hopefully, I’m done with the troop soon. We just need to settle the bank account and make it official with Girl Scouts. The good thing about being around these girls so much is that I sure know who the nice kids are and who I don’t want my kids to be friends with!

    @ JR6019 – From yesterday… LOL!!!!!!!!! :-)

    @ rgcviper – Thanks for always being a calm, funny guy every day!

    When my Mom-In-Law worked for a jeans factory in Athens, AL, there was many a day that she was told to put the next size up or down in several of the jeans she made. She and all her co-workers. Seems the factory was forever telling the garment workers to make too many of 1 size and not enough of another – more needed – size.
    Moral of this story: find and buy the clothes that fit. Then cut out the size tag.

    Sorry. No, I do not recall the brand of jeans she made.

    I find the opposite to be true. I always need to go down a size for a swimsuit. You could sew the tag on the outside of the suit and claim “it is a manufacturing defect”.

    I’m a size 6 and since Cathy looks so much heavier than me, I would have thought she was a little larger than a size 9 but since she’s throwing such a hissy fit over being told bathing suits are cut on the smaller side and she has to buy a size 11 instead, then I guess I’ll just have to take her word for it that she is, indeed, a size 9!!!!! ;-)


    Hi, rgcviper!


    Hello and Happy Monday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone had a really nice weekend!

    Why is Cathy in the Junior department? I’ve always seen Junior’s run in odd numbered sizes (7, 9, 11…) Women’s size are usually even (6, 8, 10, 12…).

    @ lightenup – glad I was able to help. :-) Thank you we are extremely proud of our son! He went to early college where he completed his high school classes in two years and used the other two for college classes. He’s very close to an associate’s degree.

    @ GretchensMom – I think Cathy looks bigger than a 9 also but I won’t tell if you won’t. :-)

    Hello to the rest of the “Cathy” Clan – enjoy the rest of your day!

    have never figured out why Cathy still shops junior sizes.

    Congratulations to your son!! And congratulations to you — it’s great that he has a good chunk of his bachelor’s out of the way then too!!

    @Catsarge — from last Thursday — I heard Garrison announce that he had lost his mother last summer on the Mother’s Day broadcast — during the “News from Lake Wobegon” segment.

    AACK. The saleslady brought on this reaction herself.

    Of course, our Cathy took this reaction to total [eye-roll] status, but still.

    Thanks for your kind words. I enjoy the comic, and even more, interacting with all of you guys.

    HI, MOM. Hello, Clan.
