    I guess it’s because Earl doesn’t feel secure in his manhood.

    He can say he was playing tug of war with it with Roscoe. That way he will get out of holding it in the future.

    He was trying to get into your wallet, Opal.

    If she has a shoulderbag, she should just cross it over her body to the other side. That’s what I do.

    Thing is she’ll never suspect Roscoe.

    “Because you were gone so long, Roscoe started to miss you. I let him hold it to comfort him that you were coming back.”

    What’s funny about it is that when someone asks you to hold their purse, it’s pretty obvious that it’s not yours. But guys worry anyway.

    Buni had a pink purse bit recently.

    Neither do I. I won’t even get a man purse.

    My husband doesn’t like to even hand me my purse for fear that for a few seconds someone will think it’s his!

    @Citizen GROG!
    I have two different bags that I use and have no doubts about my masculinity. The first is my " portable office " that contains my laptop and various electronic necessities, as well as files, notebooks, pens, etc. It has a shoulder strap to make it easier to carry. I think this kind of ’man’s purse’ is quite acceptable.
    My second one, which I carry a great deal, is probably closer – not in style but in purpose – to a woman’s hand bag. It is a green canvas and leather shoulder bag reminiscent of the book satchels with shoulder straps that we used for school in the days before backpacks became so ubiquitous. This bag contains my Samsung Tablet, cell phone, various bits and pieces depending on where I’m going, and quite often doubles as a grocery carrier for shopping.
    I find both of these invaluable. I don’t really consider them to be feminine accouterments.

    Roscoe has that guilty look.

    Apparently not at 1:00 am. But no time to deal with it more effectively now, so that will have to stand.

    In 44 yrs of marriage my hubby won’t even dare to look through my purse if I ask him to get something out of it for me. He will bring me the purse so I can look through myself. It seems as if he thinks it’s some kind of alien world in there and it’s too far out of his element. hahaha

    What I find curious is that none of the previous commenters has said a thing about the leash in panel 1,2, & 3. What happened? Did they put it in Opal’s purse?
