    That would have been my first reason.

    I really, really don’t like Clovia. She’s not a nice person at all. It’s all about her, all the time. See enough of that in real life…sigh. Poor Slim.

    Why is the manager of a garage that is “broke”, the guest speaker at a convention???

    Maybe her trip is paid for by the convention people.

    Maybe the topic is “How Not To Manage A Garage Successfully”. Or possibly “Business Failing? Blame The Husband”.

    Slim had a vacation with Walt. A better one than even Hawaii could ever be!

    A get-away from the stress and problems of running a business would do wonders for their marriage.

    Part of the reason Slim and Clovia own a garage, but don’t make much money, is that their ancestors NEVER DIE. Think about it: Walt started the garage. He’s still alive. He gets his cut of money – how else does he pay for Gertie? Then, there’s Skeezix and his wife – they get their cut as well. I am sure that Corky gets some cut of it, as Walt wouldn’t leave all of it to one child. Then, there’s Chipper, and also, Clovia and Slim need to support the mysterious Gretchen, who for all we know is locked in a foreign jail, and they are required to pay money to a protection racket to keep her safe. Because of the failure of anyone to die, there’s just an ever growing list of hands reaching out for their share.

    Actually it was Skeezix who started the garage. Walt was the partner in the Wicker and Wallet furniture manufacturing company. Walt had nothing to do with the garage except perhaps for providing some seed money to Skeezix to go along with his GI Bill Of Rights money. He probably also helped Corky along with money to start the diner.
