    I love when Ruthie uses makeup! Her skill in applying it needs work, and it always turns out um, sort of overdone! It reminds me of Avis, who uses a trowel to apply hers. Ruthie is much better looking, though!

    Poor girl looks like Avis.

    Yes, but this time her mom helped her. What does that say about Mom’s skill with make-up? :)

    In today’s strip, Grandpa continues to prove he can think outside the box.

    She really does, and it’s such a shame. Ruthie is a cute kid on her own. She doesn’t need all that ‘war paint’…

    I guess “candle” would be the closest. I’m hoping so anyway.

    I doubt that much wax actually figures in the dummies made now-a-days. It is probably a mix of acrylics and plastic, possibly mixed with some wax (especially where hairs must be applied one at a time). I’m glad I don’t need to make one.

    At least mom is giving Ruthie a good time even though Joe gets to be with Grandma. My maternal grandma cooked with me (mostly baking).

    I don’t know how many books Rick Detorie had published with his One Big Happy strips, but I have 4 of them, from ‘97, ’98,’99 and 2001. The ’99 book is titled “Nice Costs Extra”, and there is a four strip series about Ruthie & her costume for Halloween. She is dressed and made up, compete with a blonde wig & guitar, as Dolly Parton! Looks a lot like her, too! What a hoot!
