    Whoa… I wrote a second post…..

    but I guess somehow I didn’t submit it.

    And now it’s GONE.

    I even looked under my laptop to see if it fell out…..




    So….. to carry on, regardless….


    Claude, I really expected you to say “I’m terminating your credit card.”

    Tsk tsk.


    Anyway… good thing that dog earns her own kibble, if she’s running up credit card bills…

    not that a year’s worth of kibble costs as much as one Terminator robot….

    besides throwing in a few bazookas, tanks and hot dog carts, whichever of those wasn’t stolen.


    I’d say send her to obedience school….

    but we know who’d end up teaching the class, and who’d end up saying “yes ma’am.”


    Isn’t that ferocious cat still named Klaude?

    I think I know who wears the furry pants in his house too.


    Oh…. and I think Al found a limb that was just a little too far….

    or else he took his own limbs too far… probably both.

    Hope he’s OK.

    So glad to see he used to be wearing a helmet.

    Safety first.


    Before I go… Alexi… sorry…. what scene?

  2. about 9 hours ago on Monty

    What’s with the shrunken frame?

    Is it that way for everybody?

    Don’t see how it could NOT be, since it’s all one image…

    But if that frame were meant to be small wouldn’t the text in it be larger?

  3. about 9 hours ago on Arlo and Janis

    I know it’s a comic, and comic strip characters can’t get sick or poison themselves….

    but I can’t believe Janis would spray clouds of chemicals right where they’ll fall into an open pot of food!


    NOTHING edible smells that horrible when cooking.

    If those shrimp actually smell putrid, they’re rotten… throw them out NOW.

    Otherwise, shrimp smell fishy, cabbage smells…well…. cabbage-y… etc… but those are natural food odors….

    they’ll calm down when the food is done.

    Get over it, or walk away.


    Go outdoors, or into a room where you can open a window.

    Later you can simmer some cinnamon sticks or lemon peel if you can’t air out the kitchen.

    If you must use air fresheners, I’m sure the packaging, even on so-called “non-toxic” ones, warns about spraying it directly into your food!


    Besides, to my nose, artificial, sweet scents like tropical mango are way worse than food odors.


    Sorry to be today’s curmudgeon….

    but this looks so dangerous!

  4. about 9 hours ago on The Argyle Sweater

    And on that note……

  5. about 9 hours ago on Daddy's Home

    I used to be afraid I’d get in these forums and say something dopey.

    Then, you know, I tried it….

    it’s really not so bad.

  6. about 9 hours ago on CowTown

    Thomas is late again!

    he really ought to rush more.

    I wish he’d be like the others….

    but he’s always declaring his independence.

  7. about 10 hours ago on Fat Cats

    The boys demonstrate their gift for quiet, Old-Money elegance.

  8. about 11 hours ago on The Dinette Set

    At sixteen, Burl told his grandmother she didn’t need to knit him another sweater…

    cos he had a part-time job and could afford to buy one at the Big and Tall Shop.


    At 22, when his uncle took him to the club to try golfing, he said it would be “easier” to go right to the 18th hole and drop his ball in the cup.


    And a few years ago, when Verla bought him and Joy a jigsaw puzzle for Christmas,

    he asked why people spent hours putting together a “broken” picture, when you could just buy one that was undamaged.

    So today’s snark doesn’t surprise me.

  9. about 11 hours ago on Brevity

    Who could it brie?

    No 1 has an alibi, but his story is full of holes.

    No. 2’s evidence might be gouda nuff to drive a wedge into the prosecution’s case.

    No. 3 is well known to string people along.


    I don’t even recognise No 4….

    but he might have red tendencies… he looks like a rapper … but I think it’s clearly a cover.

    And No. 5 … he may not be all that innocent….

    this whole thing seems to have jarred him, and put a chip in his bravado.
