    That wasn’t what he meant. Is she like him in attic candlepower?

    It’s a comic gag. Does nobody understand this is a comic not real life?

    Clovia is 64, so Slim is about that age too. Yesterday I predicted that Slim has had a stroke. Today it seems that Jim is hinting that we’re beginning a story arc in which Slim has Alzheimer’s. Let’s wait and see.

    He means when did you get back in town. I think she’s joking in her reply.

    The pony tail keeps her skin tight and looking youthful.
    Slims full face does the same thing and keeps him looking
    many years younger.

    Apparently you are the only one who “gets” todays strip.

    One last comment. I don’t remember ever seeing Slim this happy. Seems he does love his “little” girl.

    Ken, the Mary Poppins of comic commenters. Thank you for informing us all once again that we are viewing comic strips and not real life. Apparently we are all unaware that because these are comics, any form of idiotic writing and/or poor art work are permissible and we should accept this graciously.

    Too many people are far too critical of this comic.
    If anyone considers this comic idiotic, they should consider finding something else to read, and not subject themselves to something so beneath them.

    I didn’t even know Slim and Clovia had a daughter.

    Two comments: (1) There is a style of humor that Slim employs now and then (and it seems Gretchen does as well), that can ‘come off’ as stupid, but is actually clever. It’s where a question is answered in a non-obvious way. Gracie Allen did this, an example is: “Gracie, did the maid ever drop you on your head when you were a baby?” “Don’t be silly, George, we couldn’t afford a maid. My mother had to do it.” I always ‘read’ Slim’s humor, and many of his comments, in this light. (2) Once again, Slim’s kindness and love for family shows through. Slim shouldn’t be a laughing stock. He should be the ‘too kind for his own good’ counterpart to the ‘too clever for her own good’ Clovia. Done subtly, they really balance each other nicely. Make Slim an oaf (or Clovia a shrew) and it’s lost.
