    ‘Roberts’ is the sixth most common surname in Wales, and can be made more Welsh as ‘Probert’ or ‘Ap Robert.’ Either way, it still comes out ‘Son of Robert.’ Of course, not every person named ‘Roberts’ IS the son of a ‘Robert’, any more than everyone named ‘Smith’ makes horseshoes.

    By gum, you’re right. There seem to be a number of Hrod Berahts as FB matches. Perhaps they got it from the same place I did: the history of the name ‘Robert.’ ‘Roberts’ comes from ‘Robertson,’ or ‘son of Robert,’ but where did ‘Robert’ itself come from? From two ancient Germanic words ‘hrod’ and ‘beraht,’ which mean, roughly, ‘bright fortune.’

    But our fortune isn’t bright enough to afford assistants, so I have to take care of the lettering myself. Somedays it looks better.

    Bullies operate in different ways:

    They threaten you directly

    They tell you they’re on your side, while threatening you indirectly.

    Sometimes a bit of both.

    This was the kind of strip where Schulz revealed a lot about himself. We like to think that success brings happiness, but it’s no guarantee.

    And many collectors have strips- although Mort Walker once told me that Schulz’ estate were trying to get them back for the archives. Mort didn’t want to let his go.

    I’m sure Mutt gets loads of requests for Christenings.

    I knew it back then. Trudeau knew it back then- yet I know some folks who voted for him and still claim to love him, who admitted they knew very little about him prior to the election… except that he had some game show they had never watched.

    Yeah. The less you know, the more valuable your opinion and your vote are, huh?
