With an indoor pool the kids can take swimming lessons all year long. Mine did.
The pig, if I am not mistaken, Supplies us sausage, ham and bacon, Let others say his heart is big— I call it stupid of the pig.
This strip’s poem reminded me of the old folk tune “Animal Fair”
“I went to the animal fair. The birds and the beasts were there. The old baboon by the light of the moon was combing his auburn hair. The monkey he got drunk and sat on the elephant’s trunk. The elephant sneezed and fell on on his knees, and that was the end of the monk!”
I have always considered Miracle Whip to be a boiled dressing with nothing of mayo in it, but according to Wikipedia there is “mayonnaise product” in it.
From Wikipedia: "According to Kraft archivist Becky Haglund Tousey, Kraft developed the product in-house using a patented “emulsifying machine” (invented by Charles Chapman) to create a product blending mayonnaise product and less expensive salad dressing, sometimes called “boiled dressing.”2 The machine (dubbed “Miracle Whip” by Chapman) ensured that the ingredients (including more than 20 different spices) could be thoroughly blended"
Thank-you for saying this. I worked for a Toronto based company for years, and the viewpoint you expressed is exactly what my Canadian co-workers believed. They never said their system was perfect, but no way did they want what Americans have (or actually what many Americans DON’T have since so many aren’t covered by health insurance.)
I agree. Of course the real damage to the adult host is when the uh-oh baby grows into the teenage parasite.
I second that idea!
We would spend almost the entire day at the pool when my kids were young. With that kind of stay a person needs a chair from time to time. Most pools have adult swim every hour or so, and the kids can relax in a chair and have a snack. We’d get there early, grab the chaise lounge chairs and stake out a good spot in the shade for a day of fun in the pool and out since we had a good place to go when we needed a place to rest out of the water, but we weren’t ready to go home.
No, I live in the real world in a major metropolitan area in the mid-west. Maybe people here just know how to behave.
I agree with you. I see a couple of movies a month in the theaters. There are two first-run theaters that I use for the typical Hollywood releases, a theater for independent and foreign films and one second-run theater for those movies not worth the full price ticket, but still worth seeing on the big screen. AND, if I’m willing to make the drive then I know of a fabulous drive-in, too. The theaters are all clean, and I’ve never run into the types of people these curmudgeons claim are the majority wherever they go. I love the big screen theater experience., and I love movie snacks! There are plenty of wonderful movies, and there are plenty of quality places to see them.
