    Aren’t we lucky that isn’t true? But on other planets it might be so. Love those literate and observant children.

    Once my father dug up the garden for planting and put in a small yew tree at one end of the plot. At night, I snuck it out and moved it a foot. For weeks he stared and stared at it, but never figured out what I did.

    Peter’s cap is quite manly; in panel 1 he looks like a regular guy, even to the point that he teases Alice (I think; trees don’t really ambulate, do they?).

    Leave the tree alone.

    Reminds me of Calvin’s dad’s answers to some of his questions. I just love Alice’s reactions and comments to those situations. What a wonderful comic strip Cul de Sac is!

    The first time my kids saw a black-and-white movie, they asked where the colour was. I told them that before they invented colour television, everything in the world was black and white, and that we had to go out and paint everything so that it would look right on the colour TVs. Believed me for years . . .
    Ah, the lies our parents tell us.

    A tree is not inanimate.

    Good job! I figure that if I haven’t given my kids reasons to complain to a therapist I haven’t done my job as a parent!

    “. . . trees don’t really ambulate, do they?”
    The ones in Tolkien’s Middle Earth do.

    Haven’t you heard about those hit and run trees, they just jump right out at you. And of course those nasty snapping branches. Whew! could be dangerous somedays.
