    So Dale, open the ‘matching’ salt shaker.

    If the economy stays this way much longer we will all be gifting that way if at all.

    Okaaaay….


    Right, they bought TWO gifts….
    so maybe they should have given Marlene AND Dale the salt shaker….
    and then given them BOTH the pepper grinder for Christmas?

    They sure know how to make the $3 sale bin at the hardware store stretch a long way!


    But what really has me confused is that,
    all indications in the dialogue to the contrary,
    Marlene IS holding a salt shaker.


    Plus I don’t see a star anyplace.
    Maybe I’m just tired?
    Or maybe JULIE got confused when she re-used an old drawing?
    Oh, my head….


    So I’m going to SAY “Good Morning Crustwood!”

    But in keeping with the “opposite” nature of today’s cartoon….
    I’m going to bed.

    I think you are right about the salt being in her hand. Star one of many on her blouse?

    Boy, Joy and Burl surely know how to make the sale table work for them. Just think what they could do with a box of upholstery tacks. Or brass brads for someone really special.
    Or maybe she liberated them from Cracker Barrel and they had that Ace box left over from when Burl put a new flapper valve in the toilet.
    Good morning to all—and good night to you, Susan. And g’day to you, Leaky, wherever you are.

    Mikie — you can’t give someone upholstery brads… that would be tacky!


    Yeah yeah, I’m not asleep yet.
    Obviously I should be working on it.

    Burl’s not thinking straight – surely he and Joy are next in turn for the ONE present. I would have thought he’d want their TWO presents first, then cut back to one.
    Maybe that cheap aftershave has affected his thinky-thinky gland . . .

    Very hard to see stars during the day….
    I’ll check back later tonight to see if one appears in the window above the TV…. ! ! !

    Anyone see a star?

    Plenty on the blouse, but they are solid!

    “S” is for Pepper Grinder????
    She has the Salt shaker in her hand!!!

    It has a stupid “S” on it! Or are we only seeing the last or three letters of what is really on the “shaker”?

    There are no stars, they are all burned out in Crustwood today and tonight. Total eclipse of the stars.
    The lights are also out and everybody is gone, a mass mental blackout.
