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

    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.

    “Gosh, Earl… I’m usually so sarcastic, cutting, and critical about you that I wasn’t expecting you to say something sweet, endearing and loving. Carry on!”

    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!

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…
