    Oh, it had to be the pub. (Ayre Uygur from yesterday: I’m a dude from the United States! Did you even bother to look at my GoComics profile? I shows my description and previous comic comments.)

    howtheduck—
    There is no “moral to this story” — it’s a comic strip – ergo, it’s a joke.
    I guess you get a little cranky when you stay up late.

    @howtheduck—-I am pretty sure the agreement would have been given before the meeting ended, & before the pub visit. If you had read yesterdays comment byNight-Gaunt49 who shows Lynn’s Notes everyday, It said she LOVES yard sales, & so did her mother.

    No one said that men have a monopy on double standards!

    I’m surprised no one commented on the “dirt” that suddenly appeared on Elly’s nose. (yes, I know it’s supposed to show that she’s inebriated, but to me it looks like dirt!)

    Not for granted, for Grant’s. Malt does more than Milton can to justify woman’s ways to man, or other women. (Apologies to Housman).

    library? Do they still exist? What for? All the books are online. Research? It’s online too.

    Yes, libraries are still alive and well. Our library in Cincinnati, Oh. just received a major national award for being a good library system. woohoo! Her reluctance to host the yard sale is very understandable, since she’ll probably have to do most of the work. lol

    Worse, whatever doesn’t sell may get left on their lawn!

    It’s one thing to go to yard sales and quite another to hold one. I love going to them too if I can get my husband to stop the car, but it’s a lot of work to hold one. I wonder how much help the other ladies will be to Elly or if they’ll expect her to do all the work.

    I imagine that Elly’s nose looks dirty because lots of papers print the comics in black and white, and that’s the only way Lynn could show the red nose. (It really redded up in a hurry to illustrate the punch [no pun intended] line, didn’t it?) BTW, the Sunday NY Times showed a photo identifying a fellow as having a “red tie,” and the photo was in black and white
    :-D.

    On a serious note, I’d like to recommend that you good folks check out Darrin Bell’s “Candorville” today, along with the comments. Very moving and inspiring.

    @Gokie5

    Elly’s nose looks dirty because the strip originally was in black & white? Fair enough. But if the characters’ clothes were colorized in the reprints, why not Elly’s nose reflect the right color too. Part of the nonstop jokes about the “young, rewritten” Pattersons of 2013 still using 1970s technology.

    Since Elly is the “low man on the totem pole” around there and it IS at her house, I’m sure she’ll be expected to do it all by herself. After all, if the brown-haired lady who thought holding a yard sale in front of the library would be “too demeaning” (even though the proceeds from the sale would actually be FOR the library), then what do you think the chances are that she (or anyone else who thought the same way she did) would actually be there at Elly’s house on the big day in order to help her out? Not good, would be my guess. And if the sale didn’t bring in as much money as they hoped for, then it would be all Elly’s fault too.

    You really don’t have a clue, do you.
