    I have enjoyed this story. Now that it has finished — for at least the second time here on GoComics! — are you going to re-run it again, or do something new? I vote for the latter.

    Helmets like that, commonly known as “pith helmets” or “sola topee” were worn by many westerners who had to spend much time outdoors in tropical climates. I have seen pictures of my own parents, both mother and father, wearing them. They served as Christian missionaries in China in the 1940s and in South Africa in the 1950s.

    Didn’t the London Underground have a really disastrous fire some years ago when one of their old wooden escalators (and accumulated debris underneath it) caught fire?

    The grammar is correct. “Thy” is the old singular (as was “thee” and “thou”). “Your” (and “you”) used to be plural.

    I hate velcro for most things — especially shoes and wallets — but use them anyway, since both the shoes and the wallet were gifts and I’m too frugal to look a gift horse in the mouth. Maybe that attitude is pluggerish too?

    Oh please Oop. You were all set to get married a few years ago, even were at the ceremony. This is getting ridiculous. One of the writers is not up on Oop history.

    Garbage! It is knowing the background of things like that that makes this comment, from Oop’s lips, so ironic. Good work, whichever of the team decided on that line!

    I’m not sure I would call it a “favorite”, but it’s usually the first mother-themed song that springs to my mind because my father used to either sing it to my mother or request it played on radio request shows every Mothers’ Day as I was growing up: “M” is for the Million Things She Gave Me.

    He may intend to follow the example of King Saul, King David, King Solomon, and many other Biblical kings. ;-)

    By the way, I currently live in urban Hong Kong, where we are lucky if we can see a dozen stars on a clear night.
