    I wonder about Slim. Does he eat to live or live to eat???

    I am so glad they’re back again, I am so glad to see
    these precious characters back~the Wallet family.
    Thank you, again. I had given up on seeing them
    and drifted away from reading it. I am so
    glad I checked this strip again.

    I have read GA since a child, my parents used to
    read it to us as wee ones. Thank you, Mr. Scancarelli.

    IMO, it was over when Slim was the one to take Walt to Old Comics Home (it would have been most original if they had had an old comic-character with equally-old vehicle, or even just the old vehicle — such as the notorious Old Bess).

    That would have been better. Jim needs to show more diversity in choosing which characters to use instead of using the Skinners and Dufus/Old Drunk all the time.

    Do you suppose the strip is going to get rid of Slim along with Walt?

    Me, too. I have read GA since I was about 5 years old, and that was a loooooong time ago!

    Reminds me of a joke Shirley Temple used in a couple of
    her movie. When asked if she would like lunch. She would say She couldn’t eat any lunch because she hadn’t had breakfast yet.

    I think that Rufus and Joel are wonderful characters. While Rufus may not be the sharpest blade on the mower, he is a good fellow. And, calling Joel and “Old Drunk” is rather insulting to the character. He may take a drink now and again, there is no harm in that. And, I think many of the points he makes in his dialogue are rather subtle, and often profoundly erudite. I think that Mr. Scancarelli does and excellent job overall, but my very favorite comics are where he features Joel and Rufus.

    At that point in an Archies comic, Archie smacks his bead and does a backflip.

    Yet you knew exactly who I was talking about.
