Oops, I meant “passed”, not “past” in my fourth line.
Forgive my ignorance, as I don’t follow sports much anymore, but is this some unwritten rule or courtesy to the home team that one isn’t supposed to keep the balls (home run balls anyway) hit by the other team? If so, that sucks! Also, after all this time has past, wouldn’t an extra ball on the field – even if it is the far outfield – be some sort of hazard or violation, requiring that the game be stopped? Not much different than when jerks throw beer cans or other debris onto the field.

The best one I ever heard is something like “if you’re wrong, admit it; and if you’re right, keep your mouth shut”. I learned Wally’s advice from my father and grandfather long ago, so it’s been around for a while. No offense is intended by any of these, it’s just the way things are.
Also, I’m very glad it is resolved that the family (at least most of them) had met Arnold before. It was never quite clear to me from the earlier references, but I believe it is now settled once and for all.

Thanks to all for the references to past strips, regarding the family’s meeting (or not meeting) Arnold before. My question is, I can’t really tell if Val and Phil actually meet Arnold (on dinner date with Evie) at the restauant – so did they meet (February 23 and 24, 2007 strips)? On top of this, Arnold was in town! I thought he was always on some project overseas.

Kids being bored over summer vacation is a common theme, but I sure don’t remember ever being bored during the summer when I was in school (in the 1960’s)! I loved it and felt like I was having a great time every day. – and I always knew that that dreaded first day of school (always the first day after Labor Day) would come soon enough (too soon, as did those much hated ads for "Back to School sales!).
I cannot remember the family ever meeting Arnold, so I think that is the big problem they are having. All I recall is Phil looking at a photo of Arnold and recalling that they may have gone to school together, although Arnold was several years older than Phil (and Phil is a few years older than Val, not to mention that Arnold is a bit younger than Evie, so the age sequence makes sense). Anyone have the reference for the family meeting Arnold? – I’d like to see it. And yes, Evie is an adult and it is her business, but she really should have told her family first (like an adult child should tell his/her parents – common courtesy if nothing else) – especially if they hadn’t met the new spouse!

I am afraid that Jay is going to be the fall guy and get all of the blame for Andromeda’s actions, once everything and everyone is back to normal. By the way, I also really enjoyed the appearance on 6/17/2014 of “Maria” (or someone who is a spitting image of her) as young Carolina. Maybe that will (should) stop all the speculation that Maria is just a child version of Rita? Grown up Maria on 6/9/2014 is very pretty!
Dana, Sue, and Carolina look fine as ~12 year olds. I notice that Sue has the obligatory green as a hair band now. I’ll be sorry (at least a little bit) to see them all grown up and back to their normal selves. On another note, I’m sure that all of the regular readers are well aware that Rita has two college age / early 20’s daughters (who seemed to be quite sensible – of course that is very often the case).
Thank you for the reminder. I very much enjoyed the 8/6/2012 and 8/7/2012 strips. Mrs. Jenson’s old ID photo must be from about 1964. After hers, I like Sue’s old photo the best – she is very pretty despite the scowl (I wish Sue could be happier!).
Of course, Mrs. Jenson! Finally a character who (probably) wouldn’t mind being magically made 20 or 30 or more years younger (unless she was just ornery at any age and likes it that way). That would be an interesting temporary transformation: perhaps others would like to see it too (note to JZ and TSR).
