    “Say hello to my little fren’, Darlene!”
    But, seriously, isn’t it nice how Petey helped Alice get over her fear of cicadas—and create a new race of Super Cicadas?

    That Alice!
    She’s lovely!
    And Petey is a joy.

    I, for one, welcome our new cicada overlords!

    Yesterday was a repeat of September 29, 2007 (but in b&w), and the first 2 Sunday strips in the rerun:

    September 30, 2012 repeated September 16, 2007
    October 7, 2012 repeated September 23, 2007.

    But this isn’t a repeat of September 30, 2007. It’s a repeat of October 7, 2007, one week later. Apparently, the rerun won’t be a total rerun.

    I never imagined that Petey would take cicadas better than I did.

    I once went camping at Angel Creek, near Wells, Nevada. The cicadas had hatched and the sound of their chirping was almost deafening.

    This strip answered one of life’s mysteries: why do men infantilize women? It must be a way to cope with their fear of women. Thank you, Mr. Thompson!

    Luckily, there’s no cicads where I live.

    When I was alice’s age, my marble collection were the little people that inhabited the flat towns I built of a meager ammount of blocks. Never had more than 2 dolls total and 2 stuffed animals, but once I got better at sketching I was very creative (and risque) with paper dolls. I made all my own clothes during my marriage and even took in dressmaking for a while.

    @mabrndt

    I saw that. Let’s hope that they just printed it out of order this week for some reason, and will show the missing Sunday next week!
