    Earl just told him that to get him out of his chair.

    Nobody should be bored. There’s always plenty of things to do.

    I learned quick as kid to never tell any adult that you were bored it never ends well.

    Earl may not be as dumb as Opal thinks

    Not a bad idea Grandpa…next time he says he’s bored, he will think twice about it…I agree that you should never tell an adult you are bored…I was too busy with fun things to ever be bored when I was Nelson’s age..

    Just wanted to add something about the Chickwood Lane…I think most artists and writers like when people comment about their strip as well as to share something in their lives that the comic reminds them of…the Chickwood person is a bit much with their ramblings about hating commentors being boring…wow…I’ve never followed that comic, but I sure would never even check it out now…I love it when artist read the comments and answer them…that makes them very nice people in my book…And I enjoy reading the comments…

    Considering the often sexual and/or political nature of Chickweed Lane, I don’t think commentors being boring was the problem.
    You like reading vulgar and politically heated comments?

    That was my mom, if you dared to say you were bored or wanted something new to do, she wouldn’t come up with a new hobby or toy, she’d set you to doing housework or gardening! Of course, that was the girls. Guys didn’t do any housework in those days, particularly in that house.

    Nothing counters boredom like weed pulling.

    Thank you for that comment. I came to the same conclusion. Chickweed Lane is a strip I read every day. It is well drawn — artistic, even — and how many strips about musicians are around?
    When some people post anonymously they feel free to be rude and nasty. Comments in the Editorials section of this site are often way out of line. If someone would be ashamed to his/her real name to a comment, they shouldn’t submit it.

    Pulling weeds has to be done, and it can be miserable. Try weeding purslane and grass from 50-foot rows of newly sprouted carrots, like I often did! It eventually trains you to put your mind into a better place.
    You forget the hot sun, your aching back, and stiff knees — and your thoughts soar into past and future and before you know it you have it done. It helped me keep sane when later I worked on the auto parts stamping line, or painted rooms in our house.

    That is the best cure for boredom. It prevents you from sitting around being bored, and the things that aren’t entertaining make the fun things seem more fun.

    When I was a kid I was board a lot, no library, sister and I had to make up our own games. Our mom not much fun. No pulling weeds either.

    Those two words: " I’m bored " were never uttered in my house growing up. My brother and I knew the consequences. Even if we were sick and out of school, as long as we were ambulatory, my mother was extremely creative about finding chores for us to do.
