    Pumaman is much better looking, Scoonz. I’m the one with the thunder cloud plum. Beautiful tree. We live on a standard City of Chicago lot, so the thunder cloud was perfect for us. That variety grows up higher (up to 30 feet) and with less spread, so if fits in our small back yard nicely. With your large lot, you can take your pick, but you’d like this one. Pinkish white flowers in early spring, then dark purple foliage. Love it. Enjoy your weekend!

    Not immature at all, Caulfield. There are many people in the USA who sound the letter d as if it were a t.

    Boy, Mallett is not kind to Hacker, is he? His team never wins; he’s fat; has goofy facial hair; he isn’t into endurance sports; he’s dumb. Now he’s shown to be a thief who is so dim-witted that he gives himself away.

    I wonder if we’ll ever see a skinny fitness nut get that kind of treatment in “Frazz”.

    I follow you, but Frazz uses the word “backwards”. Their ‘training with tax returns prepares them for fantasy baseball in the same way a runner’s training prepares him for the marathon. So their analogous, not the reverse of one another.

    That makes sense. Fantasy baseball is all about numbers, right?

    I think, though, that it’s simply that you cannot possibly complete a marathon without training really hard and for hours, over a long period of time. To play fantasy sports, you don’t have to train at all, but you can still “play”.

    Wow! On Monday, we got a gag about know-it-alls and today, a gag about the non-stop running-biking-swimming references. Mallett isn’t a robot after all! He’s self-aware!

    Picture-perfect here in Chicago, Scoonz, with sunshine and horsetail clouds. The plum tree in our backyard burst out into full bloom this morning. Spring is good. Hope you’re outside enjoying it! And the next time you consider going South, think of the feeling you get on a day like this after a winter like that.

    In our house, it’s called “straightening up”, which my wife and I do before the cleaning people arrive. Any clothes that have failed to make it into the hamper or get hung up; mail or reading material left lying around; things picked up on a shopping run that haven’t made it into the pantry yet.. You leave out the can opener from making dinner the night before, do you want the cleaning person to put it somewhere it’ll never be found? Straighten up! So that they can clean. Two totally different processes.

    An accountant can prepare a return based only on what you’ve kept track of. And cleaning people clean; they don’t put away all the junk you’ve left lying around.

    Maybe being a grown-up means you’ve learned to question your assumptions.

    Did you ruin the kid’s fun by telling him that his “logic [was] bogus”? Or otherwise condescend to him as you do to everyone here? That poor kid.
