    Boy, Petey has this kind of deraged focus about banjo men.

    Petey’s absolutely right—How many happily married banjo men do you know??

    I only know one former banjo man, and he’s not married.

    I dunno. Steve Martin and his first wife made it eight years, so maybe they’ve got a chance.

    …maybe Timmy Fretwork is just the plucky comic relief. You ever think about that?

    I love it, first hearty laugh of the day. The look and dialog of the third panel is what did that. It would make a great t-shirt.

    It IS tough to tie down banjo men. Especially their arms.

    That’s Jerry VanDyke or VanDike or however a simple proper name gets past the censors.

    Banjo men gotta be free. Like pennies, toothpicks, and breath mints at the cash register in a truck stop.

    The only man lonelier than the Banjo Man is the Bagpipes Man.

    He’s ramblin’, ramblin’ round, he’s a ramblin’ guy…

    One of the eternal truths - “You can’t tie down a Banjo Man!” It doesn’t matter where Petey heard it, or where Dill heard it. It’s something all men know in their bones, and all women learn to their sorrow. You want someone who stays put? Marry a cellist…

    “You Can’t Tie Down A Banjo Man.”

    Sounds like we have a title for the third Cul de Sac collection.

    Poor Miss Bliss. Looks like she’s headed for heartbreak.

    D-F…..A little “Galaxy Quest”, by any chance? I enjoyed ( the heck out of) that movie. If wrong, please ignore.

    Edit: Forgot to mention - the strip is great, as usual. You know that “the sound of the outward bound, makes Timmy a slave, to his wandering ways… And the wayward wind, is the……”

    Apologies to Gogi Grant.

    Pete and Toshi Seeger seem to be making out okay (66 years?)

    perhaps Miss Bliss might care for the tambourine man.. of course, that may not be all that much better.

    Pete Seeger–He’s 90 and still married to Toshi. Steve Martin ? Not sure.

    My husband is a Banjo Man. We’ve been married 23 years, so far.
