    Southern African drivers do not stop for baboons (or, indeed, anything else) – and the baboons know it – they get out of the way. More intelligent than most humans crossing the road…

    Apart from the fact that two tourists driving through South Africa alone… well, let’s just say that’s NOT a good idea… (even South Africans don’t do road trips like that) but why go so far to see elephants? They’re all over the place. In Zimbabwe we saw one in the middle of a town in someone’s back garden – and yes, it was a wild one, and yes, the houseowners were less than thrilled (Shoo! Get off my lawn!)

    Wild elephants are pretty amazing – we saw them in Zimbabwe… and got trumpted at from VERY close range by an anxious young adult, which was pretty scary as we were in an open-top jeep (admittedly being driven by a gamekeeper who was supposed to know what he was doing). Best thing though was spotting a baby rhino gambolling along with its mother. Yup, something the size of a jeep can gambol…

    “Slightly tarnished reputation”??? No **** Sherlock – c’mon, southern Africa may be unbearably beautiful, and the people lovely, but the crime rate is appalling and I for one am not enthusiastic about returning there because of it.

    I live close to where Plasticine was invented!
    I don’t remember it drying out when I was a kidlet though; but I do remember having to put Play-doh back into its pots each time.

    I remember my brother getting the original ‘ping ping’ tennis game which you plugged into the TV and moved these little dashes about to ‘ping’ a small dot back and forth. We thought it was the most amazing thing ever.
    sigh
    Then my brother-in-law building his own computer and we would sit in a dark room watching it make random fractal patterns (which looked like snow falling, very pretty).

    Eee, we would make our own fun in those days!

    When my horse was sedated she snored like Darth Vader with a cold.

    Howtheduck: on the occasion you mention Elly was not going out looking for men. She and Connie were just enjoying a girls’ night out together. In any event, John enjoys pornography (as is mentioned quite a few times in the strips over the years – and it is intimated that he likes hardcore stuff), leers after women and teenager girls on an almost daily basis, and generally behaves like a prize prat whenever something with a bust and a pulse walks into his orbit.

    I feel sorry for Elly: she and John married while he was still doing his first degree, she gave up her studies to support them – and he then stayed on at uni playing students and completed another two degrees. It was then her wages that presumably bought him the dental practice – and she then worked for him as a nurse as well as doing whatever job it was she had anyway. All this while raising Michael as a baby.

    However it is also evident that the two of them love each other and understand each other pretty well.

    I love this strip, and I sometimes think that the fact I find a couple of the characters so annoying and unlikeable is actually an indication of how well it is written!

    South Africa (and Zimbabwe) are beautiful places… pity about the truly spectacular crime rate. Going out for a picnic? Checklist: basket, sandwiches, drinks, rifles… (this list is a genuine comment from a SA chum who lives in Cape Town). Having said that, when we were in southern Africa we fell totally in love with the place… amazing scenery, wildlife, the kindest people.

    This is so true… I have a lovely walk down memory lane every time I fish out the decorations and put them up. I still use the paper garlands my parents bought when they were first married (although the garlands are very tatty now seeing as they’re sixty-odd years old). And some memories make me happy (“Remember when we bought this?”) and others sad (Mum no longer has much of a hold on reality).
