    Gee, I was 13 in 1960, and yes, I do weigh 25 lbs. more.

    I respectfully decline to announce how old I was in 1960 on the grounds that the “home” might find me. And yes, I am both shorter and heavier than I was then. I guess that makes me “above average.”

    @mikie2

    You’re shorter, too? Now I don’t feel so alone, just shorter.

    Some people are more average than others.

    Burl was born in 1950. Burl celebrated a birthday on October 30, 2013. Go figure.


    If Aristotle were alive and reading the Dinette Set he might have something to say. Like maybe.. Those Ho Hos look pretty good!

    And now that I have new knees, I’m no longer bow-legged.

    So… I guess I’m well above average, too… sigh….

    Anyhow, now we “know” that Burl was born in 1950….
    making him 63…
    at least for today’s strip.


    I put it in quotes because in some other day’s strip,
    he’ll be whatever age suits Julie’s fancy at that time.

    Never expect continuity, consistency, or any sort of logical timeline in Crustwood.


    Just enjoy it…
    after all, doesn’t it mean we can be whatever age we like too, while we’re here?


    I’d drink to that …
    but I can’t.
    I’m only 16 today….

    Let’s see… Orthotic inserts, new knees and hips, spinal fusion and laminectomy, pacemaker, dental implants, crowns, lumineers and veneers, cataracts and Lasik, hair plugs and hearing aids, eyelid lifts, tummy tuck and lap band. Dermabrasion and Botox. Cpap and Vacurect. I’ll be better than new and ready for “Are you from around here?” Look out Jerry, there’s a new gun in town!

    Hmmm. The 411 for Gold’s Gym on the left of the phone, the 411 for KFC on the right: Ahhhhh, partisan politics!! What would we NOT do without ’em?!?
