    What do they know (or care) about proper etiquette with the way they act.

    Mornin’ Leaky, mornin’ all. Burl is such a font of wisdom, is he not? Oh, and is this a re-run? Or a recycled panel? Notice the complaint about the ‘carolers noise’ on the To Do board.

    I only noticed it while searching for the Find It.

    They’re also buying fake icicles for over the front door.


    This is why I laugh when people try to find chronology or continuity in this strip….

    There is NONE!


    This one is a re-worked (or maybe just re-run) Christmas season strip…

    Julie sometimes runs a holiday strip on a holiday….


    But the rest of the time, she pays almost no attention to the timing of holidays, birthdays, vacations, absences from work, or any of that.


    They might be on vacation for three days running if she finds the right panels to re-use…
    or in Florida one day and in Crustwood the next…


    In bathing suits today and jackets tomorrow…
    Though that last thing can actually happen right here in N Cal.

    The Book of Penny Etiquette…..
    I think I saw that in one of those little plastic bubbles in a gumball machine.


    The large type edition runs to 7 pages, an inch by an inch and a quarter.


    Morning all!

    Hey! Thanks to you I’ve spent 15 minutes learning random facts about gum balls. While doing so I ran across this pic. Kinda looks like vous :)

    With Burl’s corporate etiquette I’m sure he’s been “marked” by Corporate for special career attention. Just like Dale had some special time off for meditation and retreat some while ago.

    Yes, this MUST be from Christmastime (icicles and carolers) and naturally they act irrationally about both.


    Last time I was lucky enough to hear carolers on the street, I went out and joined them for a couple of hours. I don’t remember now if that was in this house or my last (but it was years ago, so I suspect there). It seldom gets cold enough here to but folks in the mood for that.
    And assuming Leaky has a comment, I DO still sing although I have not joined a church here (so no more church choir).

    Maybe Julie wants to do Christmas in July? lol

    How thoughtful, finish it if a kid tells the joke, but ask Burl he goes to a lot of conventions? I am sure he knows as he has been the butt of plenty of occasions where he told stale jokes or messed up the punch line and everyone just looks at him.

    The panel is dated 7/12 and the copyright date is 2013. I’m going with a “Christmas in July” theme.
