    I have to wonder if they should have Ruthie’s hearing checked.

    Well, but a hair remover and a hairy mover sound virtually identical. So her ears are fine. It’s what’s between her ears that needs work.

    I would think Joe would be wondering WHY his Mom needs a hair remover.

    I find it amusing that coincidentally Joe appears in the exact same pose in this strip from around the year 2000 and in today’s strip (in the website, link on the right).

    I love it when things don’t change…Look what happened to “ROSE IS ROSE”, sigh.

    Ruthie is cute and Joe is just as nonchalant in both strips today (he won’t get dressed up to take part in the wedding – no pay). I was also wondering why Mom needs the hair remover (she’s blond- I never had hair on my legs).

    Maybe it isn’t for the hair on her legs…

    For today’s strip (, I just have tio say my cousin would love to be a ring bearer. Ofcourse, he’s into Lord Of The Ring movies, so he might have some strange ideas what that ring would do and what he has to do with the ring.

    @John Dohany

    This may come as a surprise to you, but young kids often react with fear to the idea of any change in their routine. The thought of moving can be a major shock to a child as young as Ruthie. So I doubt that Detorie was intending readers to conclude anything other than the fact that a little kid, not knowing there was such a thing as a ‘hair remover’, would naturally interpret the phrase as ‘hairy mover’ and would panic.
