    If you don’t already know, the strip restarted Sunday with a rerun of a 2002 strip for that day’s (9/15/19) strip.

  7. 5 days ago on Cul de Sac

    Once again, a little over 10 years ago, a blog entry preceded this strip: 

    http://richardspooralmanac.blogspot.com/2009/09/timmy-fretwork.html 

    Actually for the 9/11 strip, that already had a blog entry and it works (I think) for this strip as well.

    No real sleuthing involved. See your reply to my

    comment (if you didn’t know, when you change your ID – not sure what it was back then, it changes retroactively – appears with all your past comments as well). I use Chrome/Google/Bing to do the translating; feel free to correct my German translations at will.

    Thanks ever so much (Joe – who I knew you as from your 2012 comments)!! I took high school German, but that was almost 60 years ago, and I haven’t used it in at least 50. I’ve made the change in the title URL.
