you’re not much for household chores, are you, earl?
You know all those people who DO seem to be making the world a better place? I bet they don’t do much in the way of chores. Earl’s just taking the first step here.
Practical Opal !
…and the barge needs toting, and the bale needs lifting, but let’s stick to two things at a time.
Kind of like the woman who told me about how large companies are polluting the country as she tossed her cigarette butt on the ground.
Haven’t you learned by now, Earl, never to give Opal an opening to respond!
Earl you are in this comic strip ! What more do you want? Without you we can’t comment ;-)
“Ain’t agonna need this house no longer, ain’t agonn need this house no more”! Remember that song?
Or “Manana ,manana, manana is good enough for me”!
One nice thing about housework, if you don’t do it it waits for you!
Earl and Opal definitely have opposing views on what’s important in life.
She’s wound too tight! Opal needs to get a sense of humor already! Earl is more philosophical in his thinking….
Obviously, Earl prefers to view life in the abstract and existential, but Opal views it in practical, physical terms.
Sorry Earl, all the philosophical thought in the world ain’t gonna get those windows washed or floor mopped. There’s No Exit!
I sang that song, Bette Miller’s version, in the music group I was in for years! Fun song, people loved it!
Well you’ve succeeded, it’s little better.
“Not THAT much better!”
Make chocolate chip cookies for the widow next door count?
Then do your work at home will make your wife happy and so she will spread happiness back to you as both of you spread you general gladness.
