    Totally agree. Pearls was always really clever early on. Sure, the puns have been around since the beginning, but they caught you.

    But for the past few years it seems more and more he is conflating Pearls edgy, nuanced humor with simplistic, slapstick, potty humor Timmy. I know he hit a goldmine with that character, but now it’s like he’s coasting here, writing bazooka Joe wrappers for 9 year old boys.

    I’ve even found myself wondering why I keep it around, but I hold on, thinking he’ll get his mojo back and occasionally there is a good one.

    Tbh, I’m prolly more sensitive though, since I go back and read the whole canon often, so I have a lot in my head to compare new ones to.

    Finally gave up Get Fuzzy a while back when I realized every strip was just Satchel and Bucky being some form of bitchy. It had drifted so far from the original structure that made the strip a must read.

    Anyway, it probably was just the topic today (rat blowing and shooting things up was getting a little close, given the current world) but for once I hope it would be the start of a vacation so Stephan could recharge his muse and quit reaching to the swingset demographic for jokes.

    Tip: if you tap or click in the middle of the strip, it will show a magnifier. click on that (make sure you have the whole strip visible) and it will expand to hd. click in the upper left corner to reduce. I use it a lot to check dates.

    Only in our imaginations I guess, Mary. Steve said the strip is wrapping up this month. Sorry.

    Yup. knew Steve wouldn’t let us down! You’re a good guy, sboreman. (hope you will make Jo Clear’s dream happen too, and show Buzz and his buddy hanging out nearby too.)

    Ummm, yeah, you don’t just say goodbye to friends cause ya move. I trust Steve will make it allright. Since Vernon doesn’t have a home, there is no reason he can’t hang around LD’s yard.

    I think it is a horn. often present in heroic epics.

    Jo, I saw your and Dusty’s posts about not being on fb. No worries, you don’t need an account to view public pages, like I assume Steve’s will be. You just won’t get notifications when he posts new material, so you will have to go check. Hope that helps.

    Okay, just got caught up and saw Steve’s announcement. Thank you so much for bringing us Little Dog, Steve. I will brace for the end of the month. I know I will cry, but so happy to know LD will be safe and snuggly at home. You have done an epic run with a truly magical strip. And thank you for taking care of your fans. Congrats on the new little one, (ooh, I pegged that! grin. But the end too, darn.) Who knows, maybe someday one of the kids will get inspired to pick up and tell us about LDs adventures at home. smile. best always, PDD
