    “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).

    Yup, it’s good to sit against the lying down equine in your life. Although you do end up with a wet behind.

    Oh, how I remember the joys of nitpicking with the DM in games of D&D! Once a large troll ambushed our party… but we successfully argued that it couldn’t POSSIBLY be a large troll as it was a very small bridge that we were crossing – and EVERYONE knows that a troll’s size is directly related to the size of its bridge.
    Although ever since then I have always felt faintly nervous crossing large motorway bridges.

    Ghostkeeper: I presume you are not aware of the appalling and shameful state of Bethlehem? How the different groups of Christians who run the church there are constantly fighting each other over it? (albeit with brooms and so on, as opposed to bullets). You’d think people living in the Occupied Territories would have enough to worry about…

    And anyway, why shouldn’t Muslim women enjoy nice undies? All the Muslim women I know wear lovely clothes and makeup. Yes, Mecca is a Holy City, but it’s also an ‘everyday’ city too where people live and work and have ordinary lives. Just like Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Haifa, the Sapta Puri, Jalandhar, and any other city that contains a religion’s holy sites.
