    Yes it was, yes it was. Bad habit.

    At least he promptly admitted it. But it does seem like the kids are going overboard.

    Rude, yes – but too close to home?

    Maybe Gene got it on sale. One of the stores here has leg of lamb on sale. Still too pricy for me though. I like lamb with mint jelly. I’ll go Tues. and see if it’s a little lower.

    Does Arlo still have the boat?

    It IS a restaurant. Roast lamb is “Today’s Special.” Hopefully, Gene plans to sell it all at a profit. Arlo is a Master Chef, this should work. If not, this is why God made refrigerators, they will eat well on leftovers. Arlo’s question is not rude, he is just asking what a lag-o-lamb sells for in the back woods of Mississippi (?), not what Gene spent for personal property.

    This visit has started odd rather uncomfortably. I wonder where Jimmy J is going with it?

    I never eat lamb or veal. I think it is cruel to kill a baby animal when they are only 16 weeks old.

    I think Arlo needs to be their Chief Financial Officer.

    On of the things I love about this strip is how real it is. Yeah, this is a genuine Dad sort of comment, complete with apology.

    This is parental thinking, it comes with the territory. If his children weren’t involved, it probably would have been more like, ‘Can I afford this?’. At least he caught himself.

    Friend of mine’s mother could make a great leg of lamb. For their family cookbook one of the younger sons wrote the easy two step recipe:

    1) Buy leg of lamb

    2) Tell Mom Jim (the oldest son) was coming to dinner
