    Give yourself the best you can afford.

    Of course this is a pre-cellphone cartoon, but who wears a watch now, unless it’s worn as jewelry.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Robert’s Fine Jewelery was one of the flagship stores in Lynn Lake. It reminded me so much of my dad’s store in North Vancouver, that I had to include it in the strip. Having grown up surrounded by gift-ware, jewelery, and trinkets, I was never too interested in owning any of it, but after I left home and had my ears pierced, things changed. I started to really appreciate jewelery, and once in awhile even though I felt guilty for doing so, I’d buy myself something small, something nice.

    @ellisaana. In reply to “who wears a watch now”. I DO! And not everyone uses a cell phone or carries one with them. I’m in my mid-50’s — why would I want to dig a phone out of my purse to see the time when I could just look at my wrist? :)

    When you’re in a NY subway, your cellphone won’t work, so you will need a watch.

    I wear a watch. Battery lasts a year or more.

    This was a good strip today but it seems we ought to have gotten a Father’s Day one. As much as we pick on John he is a pretty good father.

    I have a solor powered watch and the batteries are 3 years old. Love those things.

    Lots of folks, I am not going to go digging for my phone every time I want to know the time and I DO NOT have my phone attached to my hand.

    Jewelry store explanation was really interesting. Please include more when the occasion arises.
