Sliding into Independence Day nice and easy. I like it like that.
By the dawn’s early light, our flag was still there.
Happy 4th of July, everyone !
Almost 4 inches yesterday and it looks like it’s going to rain on my parade today as well. Happy 4th everybody. It’s gonna be a tough BBQ.
Back ,at you .
Long may it wave over the brave and the free.
HAVE A HAPPY 4th!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY, AMERICA
Today, I reaffirm my country’s independence and my own.
Thanks for the explanation. It’s a good one, one to remember!
God bless America!
Happy Birthday America!
Well, I’m impressed! JJ has the phase of the Moon exactly right! That’s rare among cartoonists. But…you only see the ( -the waning crescent-phase in the early morning hours before sunrise. In the early evening hours, when it’s visible (which it isn’t right now), the waxing crescent Moon looks like ) . So I’m guessing this is Arlo’s breakfast cup of coffee, right? And the panel before the last is showing the Sun coming up this morning. — That’s your Astronomy 101 class for today, students!
The waning crescent moon rises after 3 AM and sets after 3 PM. It ought to be higher in the sky in the near-dawn panel than it is in the late-night panel.
It appears to me that we are losing a little bit of freedom every year.
Sometimes the quiet strips say the most.
The quiet shows respect to me for our freedom. Explosives do not.
Arlo has started wearing baseball caps in his old age.
The land of the free, the home of the brave. It is because of the brave that we live in the land of the free.
I’ve got my flag out. I like to use my 48 star flag for all the appropriate holidays to honor WWI veterans (both of my grandfathers) and WWII vets (my father and father-in-law [also Korea for my father-in-law]). All passed now, but certainly remembered. Not dismissing Alaska and Hawaii – I love ’em both!
P.S. I count 36 stars on Arlo’s flag but obviously some are hidden where the flag wraps around the pole.
Happy Independence Day. God Bless the USA!
Thank you, Jimmy Johnson. Excellent comic.
Happy Independence Day everyone.
Celebrating the 4th with a 5th. They don’t call it that anymore, but my guess is most of you here get it. Will the metric system ever really take hold in the US?
Arlo’s father had the 1000 yard stare. The stare that veterans, who saw combat, from WWII (or any war for that matter) had.
That is one of the things to remember when celebrating July 4th.
Freedom isn’t free.
Looks like they still have a 48 star flag.
