My avatar was drawn for me by rOdd Perry, the artist half of the original BREVITY Comic team ( http://www.gocomics.com/brevity/2011/06/03 ), and is (very) loosely based on a photo of me. Thank you, rOdd! Occasionally, I edit it a bit. Please don't blame rOdd for the hats and hair bows.

    OK, folks… not sure how late I can stay up. ( I know, I know…. what have I done with the real Susan? I agree!).

    Before I go, though…. there’s another piece of the puzzle.

     

    x_Tech is, unfortunately, unable to be here tonight, or make his solution gif.

    I was planning to make a list of the differences I  found, and post them on an old strip, with a link here….

    Of course, you never know whether I’m correct.

    Luckily, someone else volunteered to make a gif for this week, and sent it to me….

    Thus, we have a gift gif, if you will.

     

    The maker prefers to remain anonymous…. I have no idea why…. and of course, I can’t give any clues to his or her identity….

    all I can say is thank you….

    and that it’s Dandi, and will come in Handi… (wink wink)

     

    Remember, no peeking, or using Neil Wick’s GC Links, until you’ve solved it yourself.

    If you peek, I’m sure Claude will scratch you with his talons.

    He has worked so hard on this puzzle…. you don’t suppose he would have grown out those toenails for any other reason, do you?

    Thanks, Dennis….

    And hi, everybody.

    I did make it, more or less… but now I won’t have to post a link.

    And Saturday is Puzzle day…. actually the one day that you don’t have to go directly to the strip on Sherpa….

    IF you want to use my side-by-side version of it.

     

    https://i.postimg.cc/T3xQKB3p/Cleo-nine-differences-June-22nd-19.png

     

    My week feels about like Teddy’s…. the only difference seeems to be that my “tar” is virtual.

     

    Gee, Monkey… thanks ever so much for the list of chores….. cough….

    OK… I sent Sid for the yak shipment…. being a huge gorilla, he’s pretty strong, and he’s helping Fenton tonight anyway.

    The little monkeys are off tonight, with Sid there…. they drive him nuts anyway, especially while I’m away.

    Dimitri says he’ll do the dishes when he comes in at midnight to mop the floors… whatever they need before that, Sid promised to wash when he got there at 8.

     

    I think Ling could probably use a little time to dry…. though I hope he knows I  certainly had nothing to do with it.

    We have a ton of key lime pies coming out tomorrow… I won’tbe there but I’ll tell the ladies to double-ship the Tiki.

    We may have to squeak by with the tomatoes we’ve got, until I can get to the Ballard Brothers Fruit and Sock Emporium on Monday, for their big sale.

     

    Perkycat My post looked complete yesterday but guess it cut off “Here I am! Thank you!”

    Hi everybody….. and thanks for the concern…. even, as Dennis puts it, the “rude” comments….

    only, they’re NOT rude, they’re funny.

     

    MargueriteM, above, knew well…

    not quite 10 years ago, she and I posted every day on the Dinette Set…. and if one of us didn’t…. whoa.

    Jail, illness, picking up sailors…. no holds barred.

     

    Anyway, thanks for posting the link, Dennis.

    And Nighthawks for posting that I was OK.

    Sorry, everybody, I’m still going to be a bit erratic for a while…

    I’m OK, but there’s stuff to deal with… I’ll be able to explain in due time.

    I miss being here… I’ll stop by as I can.

     

    Meanwhile… my internet memory is older than Clara’s.

    Using the library computer THIRTY years ago…. with a text browser called LynxII (get the pun?) ….. before there were any pictures.

    In fact, at first there were no hyperlinks, cos the internet had been invented but not the world wide web….

    the library could connect to internal servers and bring up articles…. also find and reserve books for you.

     

    Then suddenly, there were hyperlinks…. but all text…. and when a bit later, there were pictures, Lynx II couldn’t show them, so sometimes you saw a page that just had the words “image” and “Link” scattered about…..

    And then came Alta Vista and a couple of other search engines…. and suddenly you could look for stuff…. as long as it was text.

     

    I bought a Commodore computer in 1986, but it had no modem.

    Finally, in 1994, I got a 386 IBM compatible computer with a modem and Internet Explorer, and eventually I was off to the races, so to speak.

    Sigh….

     

    Meanwhile, Dennis and Liverlips … I vote “dog”.

    Probably Archie, who is a dog and a wild animal, in his way.

    Mr. Van A’s raccoons are dark and furry:

    I don’t see anybody saying anything bad about 60’s music…

    Certainly not me or Al Nala…

    “Will never die”, to me, is praise, not criticism.

     

    I like music from almost every era….

    But I think the late 60’s early 70’s stuff will always have my heart.

    Lots of other music was great….

    But how can anything be better than the Beatles, the Stones, Traffic, or Cream…

    Just for a few examples.

    A record store?

    A long-haired, bearded young clerk who’s familiar with the “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band?”

    OMG…. that worm crawled back to the 1970’s….

    Wormholes really do exist!

    Hi, x_Tech…. Grog…. Dennis…. all you 10-years-ago posters…

    all you silent lurkers…. and everybody still on the way!

    Glad to see you joining us on the comments forum for

    the June 17th  2019 “CLEO and COMPANY”

    (see, Steve…. I do know…. um…. sometimes.)

     

    Read it on Sherpa:

    Comment here.

     

    Cleo never said how she “got rid of” the cat in the first place…. if indeed she did anything.

    Probably just grabbed an opportune and coincidental moment of temporary cat-less-ness…. and bragged that it was her doing.

    But whatever caused it … it obviously didn’t take.

    I believe that cat is about to “stick the landing” in a way that gives new meaning to the phrase.

     

    Dennis… there is something almost NSFW about the appearance of a geoduck, even when it’s just doing its innocent geoduck thing.

    And that costume manages to look ….um…. well… let’s just say “not suitable,”as well, for no reason at all!

    As for tariffs… right…. cos they work so well elsewhere?

     

    I don’t understand that caption, above, anyway….

    It’s NOT hard to see…. I can see it just fine.

     

    Nighthawks… looks like FtLauderdaleAl made your favorite comment, above, almost 10 years ago…..

    So you see, you’re not the only cartoonist who’s been asked….

    “This is supposed to be funny??”

    If it can be directed at Jerry Van Amerongen, you should feel in good company!

    Panel 1, it looks like a Yellow Submarine™ vacuum cleaner…

    Panel 2, a SpongeBob SquarePants™ licensed video camera/cordless drill combo.

    So x_Tech is probably right.

    Daddy’s…. er… I mean Tony’s (non-)question for today… is, predictably….

    “Happy Father’s Day!”

     

    Um… thanks, Tony.

    I’m a bit undeserving, not being… well, you know…. a father or anything….

    but hey…. back atcha.
