Like lightenup said, love to see the discussion between Cathy and Irving about buying a horse.
The only boots I need are ones to keep my feet warm while waking in snow at way below zero temperatures. Or maybe while walking in the cold rain that is falling today. I hope your day is a sunny one.
The saleslady knows Cathy better than she knows herself hence the additional colours that we all know Cathy will end up buying anyway.
And a Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians. Please enjoy the day – even if you have to work today.
But, Purple People Eater, it is a Happy Monday for those of us who are Canadians. It is Thanksgiving Day and, of course a holiday – therefore happy. However, tomorrow is also a Monday and won’t be happy.
Happy anniversary to lindz.coop and Mr. lindz.coop. May you have many more years together.
For once the saleslady has it right – unflattering and impractical to ugly and insane.
I hope everyone is having a great Saturday.
I agree with vaughnrl2003 – girls (any female younger than I am) don’t need the high heels to look better. Even worse is parents with very young daughters doing the ‘Disney princess’ look with high heels. I have seen far to many children stumbling along in heels to high for them. Shudder to think how many sprain an ankle before the day is over.
Thank you for the anniversary wishes. We spent most of the day in the air – literally. Leave Frankfurt at 5:00pm and arrive in Toronto at 7:00pm. Sounds like a quick trip but there is a 6 hour time change in there somewhere. It was after 9:00pm last night by the time our flight from Toronto landed in North Bay – without our luggage! Fortunately we stayed in North Bay over night – way to tired to drive the next hour and a half. Checked with the airport before we left this morning and our luggage had arrived. All ended well. Nice to get back to sunshine. Mostly cloudy and rainy in the parts of Germany we visited for the past two weeks. Did not slow us down at all though.
Gave a great day today. I think it is nap time now – either that or mow the lawn.
When I get to my “real old age” my old shoes won’t fit – because i wear them until they fall apart and hot glue won’t hold them together any more. So I guess it is a new pair of shoes every few years for me.
Last day here in Frankfurt and it is drizzling. So how did we spend the first part of the afternoon – - at a shopping mall. Bleach. Could not understand why my wife wanted to shop there since most of the stores were either American or even when they had a German name they carried American brands. The same ones we can buy at home. Ah well, dinner tonight with 5 or so of my wife’s family then start packing for the flight home tomorrow afternoon.
I hope everyones’ day is sunny.
A sad commentary on the time this strip was drawn – and even more true today. The number of young people today who read anything longer than a text is sadly decreasing. Glad I know a few who do love books (and I have to include ebooks these days).
We are back in Frankfurt today after an awesome 3 days in Berlin. Going to spend the afternoon with some of my wife’s relatives. It should be a fun day. The youngest one we will see today is 15 and she not only reads books but is an aspiring writer and an incredible artist. She said that she will let me read some of the stories she has written. Really looking forward to that. Oops, time for breakfast.
I how your day will be as fantastic as I expect mine will be.
Getting a little worried about Cathy while catching up on the strips and comments. She has not actually bought anything and is even resisting the sales pitches. Maybe she is getting a little more mature in more than age.
It is interesting catching up on the strips while hurtling along at 280kph on a train between Munich and Berlin. Few pauses for updates while going through tunnels though. May be able to catch up again in a few days when we head back to Frankfurt. (I did manage to hoist a stein of good beer at the Oktoberfest grounds in Munich). Anyhow, hope everyone is having a great couple of weeks.
lightenup glad to hear you had a good vacation as well.
