    He got detention after school for playing with his pocket mirror after an inspirational talk by a visitor about spreading sunshine.

    It’s odd how the fresh air fiends don’t want the windows and doors wide open in the winter.

    On public radio, an NPR program played Delius’ Florida Suite, then two different local announcers did in the next few days. So I’ve had that running for a couple weeks. It’s a lovely piece which I had on vinyl 30 years ago, but not something you want to hear all day long.

    Did we miss a strip? There are the long unseen weapons, and the disc has been wrapped in Helen’s gown, since the other girl still has her dress on. Unless their long-lost luggage finally turned up.
    If the guards rush the group with spears, the disc bag is only going to work for about two swings. Use longer range weapons first, Tarzan.

    It just occurred to me that, with modern special effects, this strip could be made into a wonderful children’s movie. It would be refreshing after so much rehashing of the same old themes and the endless parade of superheroes.

    @ Sportymonk
    He uses his magic knife.
    But really, they’re all still pretty well groomed and dressed, considering the weeks of jungle trekking, fighting, and caving they’ve been through, and they seem to have left their weapons behind now, too, except Tarzan. Maybe the cartoonist sends them to a spa after the day’s scene is done.

    In a hundred years we’ll still find senseless things to argue about.

    It’s odd that there are so many recreational woodworkers out there, but so few people who do recreational plumbing. I can think of only sculptors who make fountains, and homebrewers who build their own equipment. Even then, it is just a means to an end, instead of a process to be enjoyed for itself. Currently I am puzzling out the fittings and connections needed to convert a utility pump into a keg and carboy cleaner.

    I don’t remember which song, but I know I was close to the radio.

    My first thought is that there’s poisonous snake in the box, instead of the diamond. How much longer can they keep sneaking around that palace killing animals?
