Dad better hurry and get some sleep. There will be a lot of noise in just a few minutes.
Mr O’Flaherty was a columnist for the SF Chronicle which was Emmy Lou’s home paper. Marty drew in house posters and other art for a San Francisco department store before she started Bobby Sox (Emmy Lou’s predecessor). My mother loved those strips.
Dad is sleeping in his glasses, while in the first two panels, and the final one, you can see a pair of glasses atop a book on the nightstand.
What a way to spoil a great day.
