That’s the problem with the “fix it” mentality. We don’t want to just listen, we want to fix what’s wrong. Sometimes we can’t, and sometimes there’s not really anything wrong.
Ignore him. It’s Foob’s favorite word.
3) Yes, Elly grew up in the 50’s, as did I. John is a successful dentist. At least successful enough to afford to buy himself a sports car on a whim, so I don’t see her resenting her “relative poverty”.
It breaks my heart to hear of the unsupportive, and often critical parents that some of us have had to survive. It makes me truly thankful for the parents I had and the brothers I have.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of us who love this strip and gather together every day.
In the sixth grade, she would see that teacher every week day except for holidays. That’s a bit more than occasionally.
It isn’t really. Elly just doesn’t see that because she wants Liz to confide in her only.
Good morning, Vagabonds and HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
Our weather is similar to Chris’ this morning. Our expected high is 59. The amusing thing is that Chris looks at it as lovely and warm and I think it’s a bit too chilly. We are the products of our environment, I guess.
I’ve baked the pumpkin pie and will put the turkey in around noon. Everything else will work itself around that.
Mark, may the rest of your Thanksgiving be truly a reason to be thankful. You are blessed to have a replacement fridge readily available.
Rita, I too am grateful for the love and support we all see among this group. For a bunch of strangers who have mostly never met we do pretty well.
Chris, I posted the Raw Cranberry Relish recipe as a reply to your request for it. I think that is the strip from two days ago.
I pray that all of us have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. May the Lord bless and keep us all, and may He keep us thankful for all of His blessings, even the ones that don’t feel like blessings at the moment.
It struck me that a couple of the strips today show a turkey being served, but the colorist made it a pale, sickly pink as if they weren’t cooked.
NO! NO! NO! Today’s technology has turned us into a society of rude self-centered individualists. Interaction with a friend is so much more than sitting together using your cell phones together.
I couldn’t tell you the dates, but there have been a couple of times in the “earlier” strips where a typewriter has been updated to a computer. I have a vague memory of seeing Connie using one.
