Happy Father’s Day to you too, Mr. Frank Degroot.
And YOUR Dad, will ALWAYS Love YOU, Luann.
Happy Father’s Day, All!
Maybe one day, Tiffany’s “Creators” will have a bit of “mercy” and she’ll regain (or rather GAIN) HERS.
(Don’t Scoff. There’s always HOPE…….,) ;)
Hey, Greg: Would it kill ya to give us a Sunday strip where Brad & Toni say “I’m so glad we were able to rebuild Shannon’s room after we got that permit.”
Most Dads tend to see daughters’ potential
This is so sweet ♥️
Luann projects warmth. She’s so easy to love.
Yes and true, Happy Fathers Day all.
I usually resent the Sunday strip for interrupting, but this one is very sweet.
Very sweet! Happy Fathers Day to all.
Translation: I love you and have always thought the world of you;
you ARE my world.
Happy Father’s Day! Nice lil’ comics section that Frank has.
As far as I can tell, in order: Peanuts, Garfield, Zits, Pickles, Mutts, Foxtrot
Frank was excellent and truthful today!
Tiffany’s father probably thinks of her as a “during”.
Luann looks kinda adorable in the second panel.
At 13 she was a dumpy before. Round about 15 or 16 she grew taller and started to experiment with her hair – also to actually date boys instead of dreaming about Aaron Hill. Then she got a steady boyfriend, changed her hair to its present style and became very much an after.
Then she split from her boyfriend, went to college, dressed in loose, modest frumpy clothes and became a before again. Long-term fans miss their pretty blonde starlet. Wonder when she’s coming back?
Nice and sweet♡ Frank loves his daughter, even if sometimes he makes bad jokes about her.
Nice respite from the usual “messy room” Sunday offering.
By the way, have you ever noticed this family in the comics that looks exactly like us? They both look straight out of the panel with confused looks
BTW, love the take-off names of the comics Dad is holding. Acne? Cashews?
Is it just me or is Frank’s paper backwards.
Look! Puddles is wearing glasses! Happy Father’s Day to all!
another subtle comment on the times: Note that Frank is reading an old fashioned print newspaper, while Luann is reading from an electronic tablet / e-reader. Thus foreshadowing the changing of the guard and the loss of print media.
Nice to see the family bonds among the DeGroots.
Absoulutely love the aka comic strips on his comics pages, Cashews, Taft, Acne, Olives, Pets, and what looks like Rhumba.
This is great. I sure do miss my dad and this is a perfect example of something he would have said.
Seeing the parodied names of the comics in today’s strip, I imagine that some of the comics inside that section might be (I’ll let you all figure out the real names):
“Tiny Lum’s Partner”
“A Large Glad”
“Leporids Loathing Legerdemain”
“Mongrel and Jeffrey”
“Margo” (if you’ve read “Apartment 3G,” you’ll realize what I’m getting at here!)
Tomorrow: Catfight prelude? or?
Way to make Father’s Day all about yourself, Luann.
This is so sweet. All girls want their dads to think that they’re “afters.”
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads here, whether dads by birth, stepdads, or father figures.
Happy Father’s Day to all that it applies! We are at my daughter’s softball tournament out of town this weekend, and we just won our 5th game in a row between yesterday and today. Off to the championship game. I’m the official scorekeeper, so I’m kind of working today…
In honor of today, here’s a song from Barry Manilow:
Happy Father’s Day to all fathers, stepfathers, uncles and friends who behaved like fathers, etc! :-)
He typically sees his daughter through afterish-colored glasses.
Happy Fathers’ Day everyone! What a sweet strip. And Luann, you are most definitely an “After” in my book. You look sweet and lovely. I know your wardrobe gets criticized a lot but for the most part you look great. And Frank, you are a real Sweetie. You guys are lucky to have each other as Father and Daughter.
Strangely, I keep looking at the titles of the comic strips on Frank’s paper… Cashews, Taft, Acne, Olives, Pets…. interesting strips he’s reading.
Nice Father’s Day sentiment from Frank to his insecure daughter. Truth is, Luann, you do look vastly better now (after) than you did at thirteen (before)!
It is a good thing that Frank loves his daughter, she’ll probably be living with him for many, many years to come.
Was wishing to see Tiffany father’s face on this father’s day. Happy father day.
What’s the last comic title on the page Frank is holding? “Rumba”?
Speaking of comments, check the funnies dad is reading: CASHEWS (Peanuts), TAFT (Garfield), and ACNE (Zits).
