    Hopefully, Rollo, Sr. also thought about buying the lot where Sluggo’s house stands, so that no one could ever run Sluggo out of his “home.” Very interesting way to resolve the “mystery of Sluggo.”

    1. If only real world children (and some adults) had some help like this in their different situations…..

    2. Love how Fritzi was sure to include Sluggo in asking about the test…. even though Sluggo wasn’t exactly “her own”, she and the others made sure that Sluggo wasn’t neglected, and made sure he wasn’t “on his own”, and helped him feel independent, as he probably viewed himself, at the same time…

    One last thing: maybe now people can not only see why she didn’t officialy adopt Sluggo, and can also see that this way, he and Nancy can continue to have a “crush” on each other….

    Don’t want to hijack the comments, but today’s strip really keeps reminding me of Isaiah 65: 21-24, where there will be no worries about acquiring basic essentials, which I am confident will be for all and soon…. and I’m saying this just because I am reminded of this….

    I just hope it’s “sooner” than “later” ie: Sooner or later.

    It’s rather unusual for in the USA for a house and the land not to be sold together. Mineral rights, that’s a different story.

    Sluggo is rich, indeed.

    You’re right, it is unusual, but in Baltimore City, where I was born, it is very common. You may own the house, but someone else may own the land and you’ll have to pay “ground rent” annually as part of your escrow. You can request at financing to buy the ground and it must be sold to you, but many don’t do it.

    Sluggo doesn’t notice that his pantry slowly fills up with food he didn’t buy??

    He’s a kid. Kids don’t always realize how the whole concept works. Wither that, or he is aware of what everyone is doing for him, so he studies hard and works hard to make everyone proud of him.
