    Yet more serious subject matter! I hope Crane isn’t retiring. Either way, I continue to appreciate the rewarding, loving strips.

    What have they done with the REAL Earl? Who is this impostor? ;-)

    Maybe Earl has a new appreciation for life after that doggie door incident.

    A lady I used to work with told me she’s not an ‘old person’ she’s an ‘older person’. I liked that.

    I guess even Earl can say something smart once in a while. That is pretty good for someone who gets his head caught in the doggy door.

    “….lots of paint properly applied.”

    But yes, Earl appreciates Opal even if some others don’t.

    This is sweet. And very heartfelt and sincere. Who knew Earl had it in him? I think he was just saying that it takes a while to come into Opal’s brand of beauty. He’s right!

    Two people Who have Shared Their Life’s Together will Always See Themselves as They Were when they First Met and Fell in Love. True Beauty Never Fades. It just Gets Richer with Every Season of Life. ( “Kitten” and I have been Together As One for almost 30 years and She is Still My Kitty. I just saved this Comic, enlarged it, and Set it as our screensaver,so She will see it when She gets up, still asleep as She has Nerve Damage and Issues. I Hope it Makes Her Smile.:-} It made me.:-} ) You-All Smile and Have a Great Day ! Be Safe ! " Love The One Your With ! " " Ya Never Know How Long Ya Have, Cherish Your Time Together."

    Beautiful words, beautiful wisdom. As a massage therapist (38 years) I see people all the time at all stages of life, and I can verify Earl’s surprising (and touching) words.

    A different perspective on Earl’s comment here: Personally, I prefer even older people un-painted.

    The older you get, the more your outside resembles what’s inside. So, yeah, beauty is a work of art… But the joke is:

    People with plenty of gray matter get gray hair. People who’re going bald though…
