    Evie, you’ve been overseas and flown on international flights – it’s a MUST to be early!!

    I think she means “so early” (4 hours early) vs early (2 hours).

    I took it to mean it was “so early” in the morning because Val is yawning.

    And I thought this was fast moving. If my mom told me that she’s moving to South Africa and it happened the next week, that would be quick!

    Preparing is the main part of almost everything. Anyway, this is my favorite comic. Love it.

    She means she could have taken a taxi, Val didn’t have to get up.

    No, she means Val driving her instead of a taxi or shuttle.

    Not moving, just a trip. She always comes back.

    Maybe Arnold will change her mind.

    I agree!
    I never understand when people complain about the strip, and yet continue to read it. The creator has been writing Stone Soup this way for years!

    He hasn’t yet! He’s tried, but I think Evie also loves being needed by her family, and she likes having a place to call home. Arnold is a free spirit, no real place he hangs his hat.

    Yes! Me, “Old retired Lady” made the flight reservations yesterday to cut and run for Florida. Visiting friends while looking for a place to rent for the month of January 2015.

    I love “Knees, let’s go.” I know the feeling! Just as I’m on the verge of retirement and will have time to go places and do things, all my joints have started to make trouble. Shoulders and hips now. Knees kicked in a long time ago. Well, they’re just going to have to cope!

    “45’ is plenty”

    Does 45’ mean 45 minutes? My husband and my son-in-law, engineers both, used to have that philosophy. Both missed their planes, once each.
