    I dare Jef to do a run of strips of grand parents in the house of a student….

    Will NEVER happen!

    (Although we WILL get an ‘after-inccident’ report)

    When I was about 6, our grandfather came to visit. Guess who got booted out of his bedroom. I slept on a cot that had been stored in a closet, and as I rolled over in my sleep, I got stung by a hornet that was in the mattress.

    What would be the explanation for the eponymous star of the strip showing up at a student’s house to meet the grandparents?

    I’d figure that there is at least one Patel Motel in the area!

    One summer I rolled over in bed and was stung by a yellow jacket – and that was in the bed I slept in every night! Some bad things, large or small, just happen, and it doesn’t really seem to be anyone’s fault.

    Another preacher in our midst, delivering his daily sermon to fictional children.

    Maybe the child wants to pay for the grampies to stay in a hotel so she can stay in her own room?!

    My grandparents constantly stayed with us between their time up north and in Mexico, Spring and Fall. Being the middle child, I was the one shuffled to some far corners of the house, the basement, the livingroom couch, my older brother’s tiny bedroom (8×10) where I slept on an army cot. Fun times. But I also loved my grandparents, they were very good to us. Eventually they got an apartment, but their car was broken into. Should have stayed with us.

    My paternal grandfather was a brave and great man. He had risked his own life to save men’s lives in war. But he was also meek, quiet, kept his head down, and bore gifts of cash to try to smooth things over. Everyone who met him loved him. He had literally hundreds of friends, making new friends as he outlived his old ones. The only person on earth who hated him was my mother. On the rare occasions he would come to visit my mother threw such a fuss you would have thought Hitler himself was over.

    I’m really beginning to dislike most of the kids in this strip. More selfish and self-centered than most kids that age. She should be glad she has grandparents, a lot of kids don’t.

    I love all the kids in this strip – bright and inquisitive, not mean or destructive. These kids would make a difference in the real world.

    I love these kids, too, and I still think this one is wanting to earn money to pay for the grandparents to “get a room.” The child isn’t asking for adult intervention, or for special consideration, or callously demanding that the grampies sleep on the couch. He/she wants to EARN money, for heaven’s sake, in order to achieve a worthy goal! And one characterisitc of “kids this age,” in my own experience, is that they are beginning to have allowances and to earn money for chores, and they really do want to learn about how much things cost.

    This child is trying out a new idea on a trusted adult, and whether the idea flies or not, the child will have learned something valuable.

    My sister and I would fight to sleep one the couch when grandma came. She snored. LOL
